Oceanic Dreams #5
A bachelor party on a cruise ship. What could go wrong?
When private detective Francie is hired to spy on a groom-to-be as he and his bachelor party set sail for the Caribbean, she thinks she’s landed herself a week of paid vacation. Between lounging in the sun and sipping margaritas, she just needs to–best case scenario–report back that he’s on the up and up, or–the unfortunate, more likely scenario–snap a few photos of her target in compromising positions, buy a box of sympathy chocolates for her client, and then collect her pay along with a nice golden suntan.
Blame it on the island breezes or the alcohol, but within hours of setting sail, Francie’s leisurely vacation gets complicated when she starts making careless mistakes. Like accidentally becoming friends with the groom and falling for his best man.
Can she get herself and her mission back on track, or has she blown her cover and possibly even her career?
This is such a fun series. Even if it would contain 10 times more books, I still would not tire of it. Each book is not only a new adventure, but it’s getting to know a different author as well, because they are all written by different women.
It’s a novella and thus not a load of pages, but that does not disturb me. It’s not the number of pages but the content that make a good book. Some people might say that it’s not possible to develop a character in a shorter story but that’s not true at all.
The Francie we see at the beginning of the book is totally diffrent from the one at the end. She has come out of her shell and started to enjoy life a lot more.
The cruise is meant for single people to find love and once again Cupid did what he is supposed to do. He sure aimed a lot of arrows this time and they all hit bull’s eye.
The more a read about a cruise, the more I would like to take a lot on one of those floating paradises. Maybe in the future it’s something to take into account.
So yes, I loved this sunny and funny story. 5 stars.
Thank you, Holly Tierney-Bedord
