Starboard Secrets
Starboard secrets is the first book in the Cruise Ship Mysteries series. The book features Millie Sanders, a woman who is recovering from a heartbreak. When her husband of 35 years leaves Millie for a younger woman, the determined lady decides to get out of her comfort zone. She applies for a cruise job even though she has no experience, and is surprised when she gets called for an interview. It is not long before she is hired as the assistant director for the cruise ship. Millie is excited to be starting a new life, and she plans to dedicate all her energy to her new job.

Millie’s first day at work is quite eventful, and the first thing she sees is a body surrounded by strangers. Driven by curiosity, Millie asks a few questions to the crew and travelers, but no one seems to have all the details of what happened to the dead woman. It is at this point that Millie decides to play detective and find out the truth. After all, she had several acted as an assistant at her husband’s PI practice, and she knew a thing or two about investigative work. With little, if any, help Millie hopes to solve this mystery by the end of the trip.

In the week that follows, Millie will be busy digging up facts. This will be one action-packed week where she will come close to losing her life and job. Fortunately, she solves the mystery before the killer can get her. Her employer is also gracious enough to keep her employed even though Millie spent most if not all, her time in her first cruise solving the murder. This can only mean more cruise.

This is an excellent start to an intriguing series. The main character is a Christian who prays and asks God for guidance. All the other characters are well developed; it is interesting to see how they interact with the main character. The storyline is captivating, while the mystery is intriguing.

To many people, Gloria is a depressed woman. This cannot be further from the truth. The widowed lady is just bored and looking for something to distract her from the daily routine. An opportunity presents itself when Gloria sees several police officers at a crime scene. Her curiosity gets the better of her, and Gloria visits the scene the following day. There is not much Gloria knows aside from the information she read from the papers, but she is convinced that it is adequate for the start.

Gloria is an amateur detective in every sense of the word, but as she stumbles around the crime scene, she gathers clues that point her to the killer.
