I got this in a book club Christmas swap a few years ago and thought “not for me, but I hate giving books away, so I’ll keep it.”
It was perfect for my month of thrillers. Lo is a travel writer and is going on the inaugural cruise for a new company. But before she can go her home is robbed. Then she thinks she witnesses a murder on the ship.
But no one believes her because she’s already stressed from the break in. The book has a few twists and turns. Almost everyone is suspect at some point. It’s a good thriller, not “I can’t go to bed because I need to read the next chapter” until part 5 or 6 though.
“I should’ve felt afraid – a thirty-two year old woman, clearly wearing pajamas, wandering the streets in the small hours. But I felt safer out here than I did in my flat. Out here, someone would hear you cry.”
