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?

Would you try another book from Lorna Barrett and/or Karen White?

I may read a book, but I can't listen to one anymore . This is only the second book I have ever bought and not finished.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lorna Barrett again?

No

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Karen White?

Anyone else..everyone sounded the same

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I can't think of any

Any additional comments?

This book sounded like the Love Boat with exaggerated and made up names. The characters relationships were hard to follow. I thought it would get better when the character was murdered, but I lost interest even more. At the beginning I was at least trying to follow along, but by then I was so uninterested that I quit listening even though it was still playing. I don't understand how this got good reviews.
