My Review

Adrianne Chrisander inherited the Cosmos Cruise Lines a year ago. One stipulation to her inheritance is that she makes the cruise line a success or lose it all. When an opportunity arises to buy out another cruise line and add the ships to her fleet, she jumps on it.  

One of her newly acquired ships is conducting a murder mystery cruise which Adrianne would like to incorporate on her other ships.  She and her fiancĂ©, Captain Keith Knowles, decide to take the cruise without letting anyone know she’s their new boss.  She had no idea her evil cousin Stavros would be on the same ship with his own intentions of buying it.  Although the cousins have never met, Stavros has sworn to destroy Adrianne.  She never realized just how evil he could be.

This is the third book in the series.  I’m finding myself addicted to this series.  I love cruising and I so enjoy living vicariously through these books until I can go on one myself.  These are sweet, cozies.  There are no murders, gore, or sex.  

I recommend reading the books in order as storylines do tend to carryover.  It also gives you a chance to get acquainted with these characters and see their character growth.  These books are light-hearted stories that leave you smiling.  Anything that gives me a "feel good" feeling gets 5 stars from me.
