Suzy Marshall and Amanda Herbert have both found themselves on a transatlantic cruiser by accident: struggling actress Suzy has had her play abruptly cancelled under rather suspicious circumstances; and Amanda's found herself homeless in rainy Clapham after her flat purchase falls through. But the ship has barely left the harbor before Suzy and Amanda realize that there's something very strange afoot indeed. Neither can predict the strange characters and dodgy dealings they will encounter - nor the unexpected rewards to reaped at high sea.

It seemed rather apt to read a book featuring a cruise ship, while on board a boat trip myself.

I loved getting to know both  Suzy and Amanda, even before their path crossed and everything became that bit more complicated. 

They are both women of an older generation, and through circumstances have decided that this trans-Atlantic cruise is the best thing they can do for the time being, one of them as its offering her work, and the other as she is sort of between homes, as her house buying chain wavers. 

Although some of the connections between them seemed quite obvious, there are plenty of twists and turns in this funny book. 

I was enthralled by what I was reading, and really did enjoy the story, even if at times the plot became slightly convoluted. 

An enjoyable holiday read, which brightened up my boat trip!
