Description

Tricia and Angelica leave Booktown behind for a pleasure cruise, but they’re going to need their life jackets because a murderer has also booked passage—in Lorna Barrett’s New York Times bestselling series.
 
While her bookstore, Haven’t Got a Clue, is rebuilt following a devastating fire, Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica, decide to book a cruise for some much needed R&R. Naturally they choose a Mystery Lovers cruise, where they can ponder whodunnit in deck chairs while sipping colorful drinks and soaking up some rays.
 
But the fun is cut short when a fellow passenger is murdered for real. Is the killer a famous mystery author, one of his fans, or a member of the ship’s crew? As Tricia tries to find the killer before they reach port, she may be cruising for a bruising...

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 29, 2016 – In Barrett's diverting 10th Booktown mystery (after 2015's A Fatal Chapter), bookstore owner Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica, a cafe owner, treat themselves to an authors' cruise on an Irish ocean liner. Tricia is known in her hometown of Stoneham, N.H., as the village jinx because she stumbles across bodies with alarming regularity, and she can't escape her reputation when she finds famous author E.M. Barstow dead in her stateroom. The ship's security officer seems more interested in protecting the cruise line's reputation than investigating Barstow's suspicious death. Barstow has made enemies of almost everyone in the publishing world over the years, and Tricia fears that she and Angelica are traveling with a boatload of potential murderers. Barrett is more concerned with creating relatable characters and realistic interactions among Tricia and her family and friends than in plotting a credible murder, but series fans will enjoy how Tricia and Angelica's relationship has grown and deepened. Those who enjoy the mysteries of Carolyn Hart will find a lot to like.

Tenth book in series!

Title Wave by Lorna Barrett is the tenth book in A Booktown Mystery series. Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica Miles are going on a Mystery Lover’s cruise on the Celtic Lady along with family members (Antonio and Ginny Barbero and their daughter, Sofia) and colleagues from the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce. Milford Travel proposed the excursion and it is taking place during the slow period for their town. They are all looking forward to spending some time in the sun (and away from the snow). They will get a chance to meet various mystery authors, attend lectures and workshops, and get books signed. Tricia owns Haven’s Got a Clue in Stoneham, New Hampshire which carries mystery novels (the town is full of various bookstores). Unfortunately, EM Barstow is one of the authors. Ms. Barstow is a bestselling mystery author with horrible attitude (rude, demeaning). Ms. Barstow is accompanied by Dori Douglas, who is president of her fan club and Cathy Cooper, her editor. Tricia cannot sleep the first night and goes to get some hot cocoa. She is on the way back to her room, when she notices a stateroom door wide open. She investigates and finds EM Barstow dead. The suspect list is extremely long, and they need to solve it before the ships arrives back in port (and the killer will walk away). Can Tricia find the killer before the killer decides to write her off?

Title Wave was my least favorite book in this series. From the moment EM Barstow was introduced the reader knows (and hopes) she will be killed. I thought the killer was obvious (the suspect list is really short in actuality), but the author did a good with it (and there is a twist near the end). The one thing that really annoyed me in the novel was the constant mention of how much and what Tricia ate. It is talked about more than the mystery. It was too dominant in the book. Angelica pushed Tricia to eat and Tricia declined to eat. The readers find out why near the end of the book, but, by that time, I did not care (I was sick of it). I think Ms. Barrett could have handled it differently, more subtlety. I wish the author had spent more time on the mystery and less on food issues. I felt that Tricia took the joy out of the book (and the trip for the group). I found that some information was repeated (like Tricia and her eating issues and Tricia’s deceased ex-husband). I give Title Wave 3 out of 5 stars. I will read the next book in A Booktown Mystery series, and I sincerely hope it will be like the novels at the beginning of the series.

I received a complimentary copy of the novel in exchange for an honest review.

Love the cruise ship setting

Well, another great read by Lorna. I love the depth and wit of the main characters and look forward to the next Booktown mystery.
