My Rating: 4 stars: Enjoyed - strongly recommend (A-)

The story opens with our reluctant hero, Dylan Scott, having a late night run in with the irritable woman staying in the cabin next to his aboard the cruise ship, Midnight Sun. Much to his (and everyone else) surprise, the miserable old woman, Hanna Larsen, is found dead the next morning in her cabin.

It was supposed to be a relaxing family vacation aboard the Viking Cruise Line, sailing the Norwegian coast in hopes of catching a glimpse of the elusive aurora borealis.

This was my first Shirley Wells book even though it is the fourth in the series. Her opening was provocative which made me want to dive right in. I have to admit, I kind of had it figured out before the ending because I thought the one person was too obvious but why not the other?

Descriptions of the various ports-of-call the cruise made and the Norwegian coastline had enough detail that I could picture it but not so much that I got bored. Dylan Scott seemed like a typical man to me - skipping o
