What would you do if you were on holiday and your better half said 'Let's not go back'?
Would you stay?
Would you stay if staying meant giving up everything back home in the UK to live on the backwater island of Key West, Florida?
Come with me to this oddball, bacchanalian corner of the world where anything goes, the closest major city is Havana and where my wife and I lead an eye-popping, adventure-filled life until it is all ripped asunder by a catastrophic hurricane.
KEY WEST: Tequila, a Pinch of Salt and a Quirky Slice of America is a lyrical portrait of a couple from the UK integrating themselves on a startlingly picturesque, joyously wacky island that is more Caribbean than it is American.
More neurotic than it is sane. More corrupt than it is law-abiding. And more prone to hurricanes than it should be.
This book is a celebration of life, love and adventure-an enchanting account of a couple who weren't afraid to jump off the hamster wheel and have a go at a dream.

About the Author

Jon Breakfield was born in the U.S. and grew up in Austria. He graduated from UCLA's prestigious Film School. Despite having survived the odd hurricane, he and his wife still love Key West and divide their time between Florida and Glasgow, Scotland. Jon is a former T.V. writer, the author of three Non-Fiction books and coming soon his first crime novel set in Glasgow, Scotland. If he weren't a writer his only other career choice would have been that of international beer tester where he could continue with his travels whilst endeavouring to stay out of trouble in another language.
