My Review

Retired detective, Lucy Hannaford, goes on a much needed post retirement cruise with her husband. However, her career as a detective doesn’t seem to be in retirement as one of her fellow cruise passengers ends up dead and she is forced to assist in the investigation.

Lucy ends up in charge of the investigation. She discovers quite a few suspects , not to mention many obstacles along the way.

This is the first book in the Hannaford British Cozy Mystery series and it’s off to a great start. Lucy is a wonderful character. I would have liked to see more of her interacting with her husband, but he was relegated into the background for this book.

It’s a short book with a fast-paced storyline with many twists and turns. I didn’t want to put this one down until I knew whodunit. I’ll be looking for the second book in this series.
