A dangerous hitman. An elderly woman in danger. All that stands between them is a broken-hearted young woman.
Join Rachel Prince, cruise ship sleuth on her first outing aboard the fictional Coral Queen. Prepare yourself for murder and mayhem with plenty of red herrings.
Rachel is twenty-five years old, and appears to have everything. She is beautiful, bright and a recently qualified police officer. The problem is that the fiancé she was deeply in love with has ditched her for another woman!
Rachel needs rest and relaxation. To help her recuperate her best friend Sarah, a nurse on board a cruise ship offers the solution. A Mediterranean cruise couldn't hurt....
Or could it?
Soon after boarding Rachel befriends an elderly woman but the titled Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe appears concerned about something. Meanwhile, Rachel finds herself falling under the spell of the charming and attractive Carlos. Who is he and why is he so secretive?
When a passenger meets with a tragic accident, the tension builds. With danger threatening at every turn, Rachel needs to get to the bottom of this mystery before someone else is killed. She is putting herself in danger. Could she be the next victim?
This cozy/thriller has suspense and intrigue. A good, clean murder mystery with lots of red herrings.
You don't have to like cruising to enjoy this book but if you do you might get a double dollop of pleasure.
"A great debut novel by an emerging talent."
