Can she discover who’s behind the nefarious plan before succumbing to it herself?

What a hoot! "Super!"

Any additional comments?

This, the second of the Jarria and Will Ransom cruise mysteries is great fun. Yes, there are deaths but the real pleasure of this book is in taking a laid back holiday with friends - the Dansons again meet up with Nan and Charlie, the couple first encountered on the traumatic previous trip, as well as meeting new people. As the reader travels with them on a sailing towards Anchorage, there are many things to enjoy: like food, Scrabble, games of Trivia, food, line dancing, shopping,, chatter, food, sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge, whales, food, stunning scenery and even the Northern Lights. Oh, did I mention food? There is even an on board murder mystery themed dinner, a "pretend mystery inside of a real one."

This is a book which concentrates on the characters, who become real people trying to enjoy their relaxing holiday together despite the unfortunate incidents occuring around them whilst simultaneously talking about it and trying to solve the puzzle. The biggest mystery of all is, of course, why Jarria ever allowed herself to be talked into going on a second cruise after having been so upset the first time round. But then, we all do incomprehensible things at times - and, hopefully she will be persuaded by Will to take a third trip soon.

Ginger Walton's narration, too, is simply delicious. Her lovely honey gravelled voice is the perfect medium to tell this story, her reading well modulated and nicely paced. The individual vocal interpretations of each protagonist is not particularly different but that doesn't matter, she is such a pleasure to hear and the reader is further pulled into a pleasant holiday fun by had warm delivery. At one point Ms.Walton even has to sing: that, too, is lovely.

This is as much a holiday for the reader as it is a mystery story. All without having to leave the comfort of one's home. My especial thanks to the rights holder of Murder on Deck for the free gifting of it to me, via Audiobook Boom. It was a treat. I sincerely hope that there will be more in this delightful series in the future.

A mystery on a cruise ship

This is book 2 in the Jerria Danson series, but it can certainly be enjoyed as a stand alone. Some of the characters from book 1 were back, and the author does a great job of providing enough detail to understand the relationships if you haven't had the chance to read the first book.

I really enjoyed the descriptions of the locations. For the places I've been, they were spot on, and I felt like I was right back there.

There was definitely more of a mystery with this book. I liked not knowing for certain who the culprit was until we got near the end of the story.

I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A cruise to die for

I am always looking for cozy mystery type stories. When i first started this story i was unsure about it. It seemed it was only about a cruise. However, the more i listened the more i liked. It was about Jerria and her husband and friends going on a cruise to Alaska where they met other people and had a lot of fun. Then people started getting sick and no one could figure out why. The two of the passengers died. Even the CDC was called in to investigate the mystery. Come on the cruise and find out what happens. I must say i enjoyed the book. I felt like i was on the cruise. I wanted to eat and shop too. Loved it. I would like to listen to more of these stories. I received this audio book free in exchange for a honest review.
