A Review

Love is in the air, but so is lying, murder, and kidnapping.

Called back to assist an old colleague on a case, Darcy St. James found herself isolated and with few (if any) clues to go on.  Her colleague had disappeared just as they were preparing to depart on an Alaskan cruise aboard the cruise ship Bering.  She was on her own.

At least that was true until she found that the Excursion Director was an old friend, Gage McKenna.  Darcy, Gage, with assistance from his family’s local adventuring business,  and the local sheriff, would discover the hints that were needed to get to the bottom of the disgusting behavior that seem to pervade much of what occurred aboard the Bering’s voyage along the Alaskan coast.

The book read smoothly, even as it jumped from scene to scene.  There were times I did not want to put the book down, even though I had to go to bed in order to ready for the next day.  The book served as a reminder that God does not always work at our pace, but He does work at His pace and accomplishes His purposes in His time.

If the book had been a feature film, it would have made the perfect date movie.  The mystery, along with the love story(ies?) that paralleled the mystery, will appeal to all readers.   I saw no glaring holes in the story or the evidence as it was gathered in the course of this adventure.  Though this is book three of a set, I found the story easy to settle into without having read the previous two books.  Though this is the end of a trilogy, I hope the author will have the opportunity to contract for another three books in the series.     

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
