Product description

Product Description

Trouble seems to find Kate Huntington, even on a Caribbean cruise. She and her friend, Liz, befriend socialite Cora Beall, who is having relationship problems. When Cora is found dead, her cabin locked from the inside, the ship’s captain assumes it’s a suicide.

Kate is skeptical. Her private detective husband begs her to let it go, but the evidence points more and more toward murder. And she can’t stop thinking about Cora’s teenage daughter who is back in the States with her stepfather. Which is worse, thinking your mother committed suicide or being raised by her killer? Or is Cora’s seemingly-innocent, screenwriter boyfriend the real murderer?

And the toughest question of all... how did Cora’s killer get out of a locked room?

This is the second of the Kate on Vacation novellas, a parallel series to the Kate Huntington mysteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars short & sweet Feb. 16 2015

This is a great quick read - made me want to take a Caribbean cruise! (I'll take mine without the murder mystery, though!) You'll enjoy the cruise with Kate, Skip, Rob & Liz, while they have fun but also investigate a shipboard murder! A little suspense, a little romance, and good writing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun beach read or take it on a cruise of your own! June 17 2014
By Book Troll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
To start, I haven't read any of the other books in the series, but I didn't feel like I had missed a lot. However, I think some of the character interactions would have felt more developed if I had - and that is not the author's fault, as this is not the first book.

Regardless, the story picks up quickly and it's a breezy read. This is the kind of summer fun mystery you enjoy on the beach or perhaps even on your own cruise vacation! It's light, engaging, and paced well without feeling rushed. It is a short novella, but the story has a full arc and you definitely are kept on your toes throughout.

If you are a mystery fan, what's nice is that this book has all the requisites for a good mystery. The author provides all the information and clues and you meet all the characters. You don't get to the resolution and think, "wait - who's that?" At the same time, it isn't easy to solve. The details are there, but we learn them as the characters do. You have your red herrings and your definite sleight of hand distractions, but they don't scream "red herring," which is great. You know how sometimes you are reading a mystery and you feel like it's obvious the author is trying to hit all the key elements of the genre? Cruel Capers in the Caribbean does not do that. It feels well thought out and the mystery is a legitimate one.

I don't want to give much away, because it's a mystery after all! For a short read, it's packed with a story and I recommend it! It may not stick with you, but it's a wonderful way to pass the time and you will get your time and money's worth. I give this 4 out of 5 bloody handprints!
