My Musing ~ Title Wave by Lorna Barrett

Title Wave by Lorna Barrett is the 10th book in the “Booktown” mystery series. Publisher: Penguin Random House, June 2016

Title WaveTricia and Angelica leave Booktown behind for a pleasure cruise, but they’re going to need their life jackets because a murderer has also booked passage—in Lorna Barrett’s New York Times bestselling series.

While her bookstore, Haven’t Got a Clue, is rebuilt following a devastating fire, Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica, decide to book a cruise for some much needed R&R. Naturally they choose a Mystery Lovers cruise, where they can ponder whodunnit in deck chairs while sipping colorful drinks and soaking up some rays.

But the fun is cut short when a fellow passenger is murdered for real. Is the killer a famous mystery author, one of his fans, or a member of the ship’s crew? As Tricia tries to find the killer before they reach port, she may be cruising for a bruising…

As always, I love my visits to Stoneham, NH, but this time the gang is onboard the Celtic Lady cruise ship headed to the Bermuda. And what would a Booktown mystery be without Tricia finding a body, and yes even at sea there someone is murdered and when it appears that no one is looking into, our girl is on the case.

I like this book. The mystery was well-developed and I liked that there was a whole ship of people who could have wanted the victim dead and it was fun breaking it down to where there was only one person responsible. Every character played a pivotal role in the telling of this tale and I especially love the interaction between the two sisters. The journey of self-discovery was a good one for Tricia and helped me understand her better as the author gave us a chance to delve into the family dynamics. That was an added bonus for me. All in all, this was a very good read and I especially loved how it ended and I can’t wait to see what the author has in mind with that unexpected arrival.
