A Cruise to Murder
A Rachel Prince Mystery
A Cruise to Murder is my debut novel with the setting, obvious from the title, being on a fictional cruise ship.
This is the first in a series that will follow the protagonist, Rachel Prince, a newly qualified police constable, through a series of mysteries. The first book finds Rachel broken hearted after being ditched by her fiancé. Her best friend, Sarah works as a nurse on a cruise ship and invites Rachel to take a cruise to help her to relax.
Rachel befriends an elderly widow who appears troubled.
It is not long before Rachel finds herself embroiled in a mystery as events around her unfold into one of the passengers meeting with a seemingly tragic accident. There is also a mysterious man who she becomes attracted to, but what is he up to?
The book was launched at the Oakwood Book Festival on 12th May 2018 and within hours I received this email from a lady who bought it there.
“I got home about 1.30 …and after lunch started reading A Cruise to Murder……I was completely absorbed for the next 4hours until I had finished it. Thank you for a great story, every page took me on the cruise and I remember almost every step of the corridors, decks, lifts and trips that she went on.
The plot was gripping and tense.”
