This was just an okay entry in this series. While I loved the 'honeymoon' aspects of the story--having the family along was a bit off putting. And since we have no connection to the victim, I really didn't care about the mystery. I almost would have rather just had a story about their honeymoon. That said, I do look forward to the next one, which, hopefully, will be back home.
Wally and Skye are on their honeymoon cruise and are enjoying time together away from home. When murder happens it left to Skye to figure it out.
Did not care for this story compared to her others. Her usual colorful characters were not present because of the location and the characters she introduced were boring. Hated that they are on their honeymoon cruise and her parents and best friend is there. Too weird and then throw in a murder for them to solve, boring.
It is an easy read but not a page turner. When there are characters you could care less about it is hard to get into the book.
