Genevieve Masefield is looking forward to seeing New York with her beloved George, but then he springs news on her: he's signed himself up for a voyage of the ship Minnesota to help out an old friend and Genevieve is invited to come as his partner. Though she feels put out that George didn't consult her and she feels a pang of missing her home on board the Trans-Atlantic luxury liners, she agrees to come on the trip. The Minnesota is not a luxury liner like Cunard ships. She sails from Seattle t ...more

Ship detectives Genevieve Masefield and George Porter Dillman have left Cunard for a while, and embark on a new high seas adventure. This time they are sailing on the steamship Minnesota, built in 1904 for the Great Northern Steamship Company.

I'd like to give this 3 1/2 stars really. I felt the characters were a little more lively and diverse than the prior novels, and a little better fleshed out. As always though, I found myself feeling the character's stories, and the characters themselves, were not as well resolved as they could have been.

Two ships detectives- a romantic pair sail from Seattle to Asia. It was entertaining but the dialogue was clunky. He uses characters' names in the dialogue rather than using attributes. And Mr. Allen, seeing Puget Sound is not catching your first sight of the Pacific Ocean.

Fun book with enjoyable characters and a good mystery. My biggest problems were with the stilted dialogue and with the fact that both mysteries wrapped up a bit too fast. I'm definitely going to give the other books in the series a try.

My favorite so far in this Gilded Age detective series reminiscent of Tommy and Tuppence. George and Genevieve are smashing!
Stephanie
Just another fun, light mystery, set on a glamorous ocean-going vessel in the 19-teens. Good summer read.
Bev
Wonderful period mystery series. Can't resist the charm of the ocean liner era
