In Cruising for Murder, Myrtle and her loved ones (son and daughter-in-law, toddler grandson, and her BFF neighbor) take an Alaskan cruise. The story contains details about the cruise that add interest and complement the plot. It also shared some interesting details about cruises - like the days-of-the-week rugs!
After Myrtle and her BFF agree to play bridge with some other guests on the cruise, someone winds up dead. Then someone else in the party winds up dead. Because murders at sea don't get the same type of investigation as murders on land, it's up to our favorite octogenarian sleuth, her BFF, and her son - who is a policeman in their North Carolina hometown - to figure out who did it.
Back home, Myrtle has a gnome collection that she uses to torment her son. One of my favorite moments in this book was when she found a way to use the tactic aboard the cruise ship. It was an unexpected move that kept me in stitches.
I look forward to reading Myrtle's next adventure!
If you've read other Myrtle Clover mysteries, this one does not disappoint! You will enjoy it, so buy and read the book, now! If you've not read her before, you are in for a treat! It's hard to describe Myrtle, because she's truly an original, and unforgettable, character. She's older than Jane Marple or Mrs. Pollifax, but a great deal more insightful, witty and entertaining. Like Poirot, she uses her powers of observation, and interrogation, to get to the bottom of things, and like other literary detectives she has quite the ensemble of eccentric and helpful sidekicks to assist her. So, don't be a stick in the mud - read this or another Myrtle Clover mystery and give this crime fighting grandma a chance - you can thank me later!
Never mind that. What could be better: Myrtle, Miles, and Murder on an Alaskan cruise. I've always wanted to take an Alaskan cruise, so it was fun to read about the actual cruise and not just the murder.
Speaking of the murder, it was a solid one with good clues.
If you love the series, you'll love this book.
