*Review* Title Wave by Lorna Barrett


Tricia 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 Adirondack 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...

My Review:
3 out of 5 stars

Title Wave is the first book I have read by this author, so I have not read the previous books in this series. I feel like this book can stand on it's own though since the characters are described and developed enough that I wasn't really confused about who everyone was. I thought it was really neat that there is a "Cast of Characters" in the front of the book. That proved to be really helpful as well.

I liked learning a little bit about Stoneham and enjoyed the descriptions of the cruise setting. A Mystery Lovers cruise was a really neat idea for a book setting and the author described everything well.

The reveal of the killer took me by surprise since it was someone that I wasn't suspecting. My only complaint is that I wish there had been a little more sleuthing. I also didn't really like Angelica's character. Tricia was okay for me.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
