This is a very enjoyable book in what I hope is the first in a series. Either way, it certainly kept my attention. Zibby and Cady both work on the cruise ship Athena. Zibby as a dancer and Cady, a singer. The ship has made a three-day stop in Barbados. The descriptions of this place makes me want to get on a ship and head there right now. It sounds fabulous! The characters come alive in the story. Everything seems so real. A wonderful book by an extraordinary author!

This was the first book I've read by this author, and I'll start by telling you it certainly won't be my last. A well-written mystery that involves a cruise, Barbados, a couple of best friends, some mob ties, a dash of romance, and a murder whodunit that will certainly keep you guessing. No spoilers in my review, but here's what you really need to know: Well written story, fun, engaging, and interesting characters that will make it difficult for you to put this book down. I enjoyed the cruise sh ...more

Zibby is good at hiding secrets, so when she is on the periphery of murder, she knows there are secrets she has to figure out. Of course a dancer on a cruise ship shouldn't be inserting herself in a police investigation, but she has her reasons.

Ever wonder what goes on when the ship docks for three days? Here's your chance to find out! It's a whole lot of fun mixed with strangers, sleuthing, romance, and shipboard life.

Interesting characters who allow Zibby, and her friend Cady, to join them af

In Killing in the Caribbean, Zibby escapes a complicated life by taking a job as a dancer for a cruise line. Docked in the Bahamas, Zibby and her best friend Cady debark to see the sights and to try the island's rum at Cady's boyfriend Aiden's bar. An American tourist drops dead at the bar and Zibby is sucked into trying to clear Aiden's name. The characters are well portrayed. The plot sucked me in immediately and kept me reading far too late at night! This is a very entertaining mystery and I ...more

This one totally kept me guessing. I was completely surprised by who the killer was. I just didn't catch all the clues. I really hope we get to see more of these characters.

Zibby has a complicated past, and takes a job as a dance teacher on a cruise ship, in an attempt to get as far away from her hometown as possible. The ship docks in the Bahamas, so Zibby and fellow cruise ship employee and friend Cady, set off to Cady's boyfriend, Aiden's, restaurant for lunch. There they meet a group of fellow Americans, but unfortunately one winds up dead!

As the death occurred in Aiden's resturant, Cady worries for him and his business, so the two women get to investigating th

I loved this book, it has all the ingredients of a wonderful cozy mystery! I love Zibby and her best friend Cady, and honestly I also love the ship's doctor! The girls work on the Voyage Cruise Line and are enjoying a short break while docked on a sunny island. Running into some fellow Americans seems like good company until one of them is murdered. And right there in Aiden's bar! Aiden, Cady's boyfriend, is now a suspect. Zibby wants to help clear his name, and the two get into more and more tr ...more
