TITLE WAVE by Lorna Barrett plus GIVEAWAY
From the Publisher:
“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 . . .”
My recording experience:
What was really fun to me about this title was pondering how much of it was based on author Lorna Barrett’s real life as a writer. Hopefully not the murder, but did she go on a literary-themed cruise and get the idea to write a book about one, or did she have the idea and go on a cruise to gather the details? Also, Barrett does belong to a group of fellow Cozy writers called The Cozy Chicks which made me wonder if the “Lethal Ladies” in this story are based at all on them. I haven’t asked her, so we’ll have to keep pondering.
Perhaps more important, Tricia goes through a huge shift toward the end of this story. She’s been through a lot in her fictional life in the past few books, and without giving away too much, I’ll just say it was great to go through a change toward positive thinking with her.
