Editorial Reviews

Review

A sea cruise is just what the doctor didn't order for First Class Investigation's lead detective. Not much can lure Jordan Lacey from her beloved seaside home in Latching. But her at-long-last love DI James has been posted to chilly Yorkshire, and her landlord's about to cancel the lease on her side-by-side bedsits. So a trip to the land of the midnight sun aboard MV Orpheus Odyssey, with a boatload of money thrown in, sounds nice. Of course she needs to serve as bodyguard for spoiled, capricious Joanna Carter, who's convinced someone is out to trim her sails. But the job seems mainly to entail watching her wealthy employer cruise shipboard bars and accompanying Joanna on spectacular excursions through Norway's fjords--at least until someone straps Joanna to the Double O's keel, sending her into an unshakable trance. Ship's doctor Max Russell helps locate a Thai nurse named Suna to babysit the catatonic woman while Jordan scours the ship for clues. But when Joanna and Suna both vanish, Max starts getting hinky on Jordan. Security officer Geoff Berry, who still has a grudge against Jordan from their days together on the Sussex force, is looking for any excuse to clap her in the brig. And even though her old friend Francis Guilbert is on board and staff captain Hamish Duncan is at her service, when the going gets tough, it's James and only James that Jordan wants. Despite some rough sailing, virtue triumphs satisfyingly in Jordan's ninth (Turn and Die, 2007, etc.)... --Kirkus Reviews, 15th October 2009

Format: Hardcover
I've been working through the series and this one is such a disappointment. It is scattered and inconsistent - both in how characters act, her own thoughts and the plot layout. It is also so implausible in places (e.g. a twenty something year old can put on a wig and glasses and suddenly look 70 something? She has to avoid the doctor who will notice she doesn't have wrinkles - then seeks him out later. She's all alone with no-one to to turn to - when she has her old passion James, an old friend and a friendly retired cop on board?) It felt as though this book was thrown together to satisfy a publisher with no concern for character development or plot inconsistencies. Sorry but this one caused much eye-rolling.

Stella Whitelaw has created a series about a woman who got kicked off a local police force. She becomes a PI and a junk shop owner. The books are full of quirky scenarios, and an often frustrating love angle. I love reading about places that I have visited in England. I've been to the South Downs, and Dorking. I can see these places in my mind's eye.

I 've enjoyed reading Stella Whitelaw's Jordan Lacely books this past year since I discovered them by accident while looking for another author in our library. I find them highly entertaining. Light reading.
