Murder Ahoy! by Fiona Leitch
About The Book
Famous crime writer Bella Tyson is hired to co-host a Murder Mystery cruise, on a luxury liner sailing from Southampton to New York. She’s expecting an easy ride; fun and games, surrounded by amateur sleuths and fans of her books, all the while staying in a deluxe cabin and enjoying the spa and the amazing restaurants on board, culminating in a visit to one of her favourite cities in the world – the Big Apple.
She’s NOT expecting to be stuck on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic with her two least favourite people in the world, her hot but unfaithful bastard ex-husband Joel Quigley and fellow crime writer, bitch goddess and Twitter frenemy, Louise Meyers. And when real live dead bodies start turning up – as well as fake not-really-dead bodies – Bella’s dreams of being pampered on the high seas turn sour.
Accused of a murder she would have liked to commit but didn’t, and helped (or hindered) by a gang of unlikely detectives, can Bella find out who the real murderer is before the ship reaches its destination and New York’s finest drag her off?
During the summer I always try to read books where traveling is included on the plot, so if you add a Murder Mystery cruise, a bold and intelligent crime writer and an interesting murder on the plot, I could say that it’s my favourite story to read!
I’ll admit that this is my first read of Bella Tyson, but I didn’t feel lost or missing pieces, the story is addictive and full of humour, perfect for a summer read, you’ll only need a glass of wine.
I always love a good cozy mystery, the characters are always an important part of the plot and how everyone has a motive to kill the “victim”. Having said that, “Murder Ahoy” had all the ingredients to be one of my favourite cozy mysteries ever. Because Bella Tyson is not a delicate character, but brave and intense, who will have to face her ex-husband and archenemy in a ship for a few days, can you imagine it? Of course this will be really interesting for the reader, the scenes with them will be hilarious, but I don’t think Bella will enjoy them as much as you do.
This is a quick read, once you’ll start it will be quite impossible to put down, with all the twists and interesting characters I’ll say that you’ll want more at the end of the story, that’s why I think you should start with the first book of the series, this way waiting until the next book will not be so long! 😉
