Georgie Shaw and her husband of one week, Detective Jack Wheeler are one week into their ten day honeymoon cruise aboard the MMW Fantasy of the Sea. The South Sea Island cruise was a gift from Georgie's boss the crazy but lovable, Max Marley, creator and owner of the entertainment conglomerate that includes amusement parks, resorts and cruise lines. Their relaxation comes to a screeching halt when they hear screams of "Man Overboard" and discover that there is also a dead body at the scene. The ...more

Murder at Sea of Passenger X by Anna Celeste Burke is the best one yet in the series. Georgie and Jack are on their honeymoon, a 10 day luxury cruise given to them by Max Marley, when tragedy strikes. The plot raced along with mystery passengers, jewelry thefts, wonderful food and so many twists that I never got close to figuring out who was behind it all until the reveal. I'm already waiting impatiently for the next book in the series.

MURDER AT SEA OF PASSENGER X is a fun book. I liked the heroine, and the mystery kept me guessing. And of course you can't go wrong with a cruise ship setting.

Disclosure: I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway.

It seemed like I was waiting forever for this book to come out--It was well worth the wait!! At the end of the last book in this series--Mad Max--Georgie Shaw's boss at Marvelous Marley's World gave Georgie and her brand new husband one heck of a wedding present. A 10-day South Sea Island honeymoon aboard the Marvelous Marley Fantasy of the Sea LUXURY cruise ship. Better yet they could bring their two cats along!

Well, nothing ever seems to go smoothly for this couple--and this dream trip was no

Love these characters!!

Anna Celeste Burke has me hooked on these characters! Love them! I tried taking my time reading Murder at Sea of Passenger X: Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery #5 because I wanted it to last as long as I could (I hate when a great book comes to an end!). Unfortunately, once I started reading, putting it down was not an option. It was so good! I am 100% certain you will love this book (and the entire series)! Even before I started reading, I was wishing that I was on the cruise and

This is the fifth book in Anna Celeste Burke’s Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery series and is a wonderful read. Ms. Burke is a very talented author and her descriptive writing made me feel like I was there, feeling the ocean breezes, tasting the wonderful food, enjoying the antics of her fur babies, and participating in the action as the mystery unfolded. The mystery is well plotted, the characters well rounded and relatable, and the book has enough suspects, twists, and turns to make it hard to put th ...more

Georgie Shaw and Det. Jack Wheeler are enjoying their honeymoon cruise when the ship's security officer requests Jack's help. One passenger has been thrown overboard and another passenger, Jake Nugent, has been stabbed to death. Fortunately, Wendy Cutler was a witness to the incidents and quickly reported them to security.

To complicate matters, there have also been a series of jewelry thefts aboard the cruise ship and it appears that there is at least one person aboard that cannot be accounted

by Anna Celeste Burke

[I voluntarily read the ARC of this book after I was given a copy by the author]

“This marriage has turned out to be one of my brightest ideas ever, don’t you agree?'

Georgie and Jack have tied the proverbial knot and are now on their Honeymoon Cruise. However, how can all be champagne and chocolate with Georgie Shaw around?

Jewelry is missing and bodies are appearing. So much for a vacation as both she and her new husb

Anna Celeste Burke has done it again! This time Georgie Shaw and her hunky new husband Detective Jack Wheeler go away for a much needed honeymoon on Marvelous Marley World’s luxurious cruise ship, the MMW Fantasy of the Sea. A relaxing cruise in the South Seas, with sun, sand, a little pampering, and a man overboard. Wait, who said anything about a man overboard? Did he fall or was he helped overboard? And who is the man who is lying in a pool of blood right there where the unlucky man fell over ...more

Once again, Anna Celeste Burke has written another great book. I love the Georgie Shaw Mysteries. They are full of humor, drama, interesting and quirky characters as well as interesting, and often unique, settings. Oh, and love. Georgie and Jack are mature and I love romances involving mature characters.

I had some of the crooks figured out before it was revealed. However, the revelation of one of the crooks took me by surprise. It made perfect sense and added a lot to the story.

Georgie and her new husband are on a honeymoon cruise, venturing from island to island during their ten days at sea, when their romantic adventure takes an unexpected turn at the sound of screams, a splash, and shouts of ‘man overboard.’

Some clues can be obtained from the automated Man Overboard Detection system, other clues from a witness, Wendy Cutler, who claims to have seen three men fighting a few decks down below. Problem is, the ship is not missing any passengers on its list, so besides

What a way to spend your last day at sea! Georgie, Jack and the kitties are cruising the south seas when guess what?... MURDER HAPPENS!!!! Jack and Georgie, husband and wife day 8 are pulled into the mystery and try to avoid becoming victims themselves. Ms Burke has outdone herself in the 5th installment of the exciting series. Murder, theft and a few unusual suspects make this a page -turner. Prepare not to sleep as you will not be a

I Love Georgie and Jack

Georgie and Jack are the perfect match for each other. While Georgie might not like blood and guts she does love helping her handsome new husband solve the murders, not to mention the thefts. Taking their fur children on their honeymoon thanks to Mad Max was a delight. Now I guess I'm going to have to wait for the next one but I'll reread this one and the others while I wait.

Excellent cozy mystery!

I’ve read several books by author Celeste Burke. The fact that I keep on buying her books is a sign of how good her writing is. She’s mastered the art of writing engaging and interesting mysteries.

In this, her latest offering, she’s written another delightful page-turner. The characters are on a cruise ship enjoying themselves until someone is murdered.

Having recipes included in her book is a nice touch. I made the Rumaki and it was delicious! Next I’m going to try making

The Georgie Shaw mysteries are delightful and intriguing and Anna Celeste Burke has hit another home run with Murder at Sea of Passenger X; in fact, Murder at Sea of Passenger X is my favorite so far. The fast-paced tale presents a complex mystery of missing jewelry, missing people, and murder. The key characters are intelligent and witty and our darlings are delightfully flirty but they don't go overboard. The contrast of violent murder against the amazing backdrop of a dream cruise only adds t ...more

At last a honeymoon cruise for Georgie andJack, and tab is being picked up. by her boss. A scream, that indicates something is wrong, when a knock wanting Jack to come. Three men fighting, one is murder, one overboard, and one is where. During the night, guests jewels are missing. This leads to a honeymoon they won’t forget, but how much time, and that of cruise ports itself. The plot is good, as you follow them for clues.

Mystery? Murder? What?

I loved Georgie and her new husband, and the other characters were well developed, but I kept getting lost in the story. Also loved the cats. I couldn't figure out what was going on or why. I haven't previously read one of these mysteries, but expect this will get easier. I read for entertainment and this filled the bill well. I am going to read again.

Who brings a knife to a gunfight? I thought that I could only be safe on a cruise with Marsha & Danny Jones aboard. However, I would also go on a cruise with Georgie Shaw and Detective Jack Wheeler. They worked well together and separately to discover whose whacked out ‘psycho’ logic was driving the train. This book was constantly moving and I read it in one sitting because I didn’t want to forget anything. I recommend this book to those who enjoy fast moving stories.

This is the first book I have read in this series. There were a lot of characters to keep track of but mini recaps helped. I was hoping there would have been more details about the surrounding places the Cruise went because I like to feel that I’ve been on a mini vacation!

Georgie and detective Jack are on their honeymoon, but relaxation is not to be for them. A man overboard and a murder is what's in store instead. They are always ready to pitch in and solve mysteries. Delightful story by a fantastic author. Loved reviewing this ARC

Can't say enough good things about books by Anna Celeste Burke. All good reads so far. The cats are a hoot. Georgie and Jack make a good pair. Entregue abounds.
