Good Evening, fellow readers! I hope you’ve had a great week and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Up today is a new mystery that I finished while floating in the pool. I found a waterproof pouch for an iPad mini and it is perfect for my Kindle! I’ll link it here.
All right, let’s get into it.

Contessa Catronia Munroe is taking a cruise in the aftermath of her husband’s untimely death. Accompanied by her niece, Tiff, a smart girl on the Autism Spectrum, Cat is looking forward to a getaway. But when the owner of the ship dies in a mysterious gun accident, Cat and Tiff are thrown into a deadly situation.
I enjoyed Cat and Tiff as a crime-solving team, though Tiff is the obvious Sherlock. But like the famous detective, Tiff needs Cat to balance her. They made a good team, but sometimes Cat lacks patience and understanding with her niece. She’ll need to work harder on that.
On the same note, Tiff’s autism was often treated with scorn, as though she just didn’t act correctly. I just thought the author could have done a better job of explaining Tiff’s abilities to the other characters and not have them brush her off as just “other”.
The mystery was very well written, and I had no idea who the killer would be. The author did a fabulous job of giving each character motive. It was hard to figure out who was an enemy and who was an ally. There was definitely enough action and intrigue to keep me interested!
I really look forward to reading more of Cat and Tiff’s adventures!
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
