Editorial Reviews


★★★★★ Absolutely fantastic
What a well written, characters created story in Starboard Secrets, book 1 in this series. A few laughs along the way with a fun mystery to unravel. My late husband and I cruised often and we loved everything about it. Hope Callaghan is a seasoned cruiser and it shows through her storytelling. Headed on to the gangplank.......and the next book in this series! -Kindle Customer

★★★★★ No mystery why these books are enjoyable...
Did I mention, I really like the author's style of writing. Read ALL her works. Gonna take you about forever, because there are so many to enjoy! -Sarah E Johnson

★★★★★ Good Clean Fun
I thoroughly enjoyed this Cruise Ship Christian Cozy Mystery and my introduction to the author, Hope Callaghan. In fact, I just bought her 12 book set of this series and and her Garden Girl series so I can keep right on reading. The writing is clean and crisp. The story line is easy to follow, and the mystery has just enough twists and turns so as to keep the reader hooked on the story and guessing as who did the murder. I really liked the characters and the setting, a cruise ship, too. I look forward to spending many more hours reading about Millie, the assistant cruise director and mystery solver, as well as the rest of the ship's crew. -Colleen

★★★★★ Fast fun read
I have never read Hope Callahan before this book but I am an avid cruiser and that is what peaked my interest. The characters are wonderful and it reads fast. You just do not want to put it down. Millie the main character is a fun feisty lady who has no clue what she is doing but does it anyway. I am going to get the whole set in this series I enjoyed the first book so much. Not lovey dovey or hard to get into. It takes off and you just want to keep reading. -Cathy

★★★★★ SHIP AHOY!
Fun to read. I enjoyed the location, a cruise ship. There seems to be a whole new world using a cruise ship as your setting. Lots of possibilities for characters and plots. The character in this story is developing. This author has a great sense of character and plot development. I love a good series and even better a good author and this book has both. I highly recommend this book. And don't let the fact that this is a Christian story because the Christian is not overly done and it doesn't take away from the great writing style. -Patty Debaun

★★★★★ Fun cruise.
Kept you guessing for the whole cruise. The characters were varied and interesting. Looking forward to more Cruise Ship Cozy Mysteries. -fijilover

★★★★★ Fun, clean and well-written cozy mystery
"Starboard Secrets" is the first of Millie's seabound adventures, introducing us to this energetic woman who is beginning her second chapter, and has decided to live it working on a cruise liner.

Hope Callaghan's series' are fun and addictive. UNLIKE many "cozy" mysteries, her books are well-written, grammatically correct and intriguing. You'll love the group of characters and how they wind together in different series' and wish you could go on the cruises with them or live in the small town. -EthelVee

★★★★★ Easy to read, clean content murder/mystery books.
This, along with the entire cruise ship series by Hope Callaghan is an adorable, easy to read mystery set. I enjoy the references to Millie's spiritual life without being overly "in your face" about it. The characters are funny, their pasts and development are well established and I enjoy learning more about them in each book. -Mrscllc

★★★★★ A refreshing style of mystery!
I just finished this book in record time. I really enjoyed it. I like that the main character is a 60 year old woman & isn' t drooling all over some "hunk". I also liked how they had some of the others let you know what they were thinking about a situation. I was sorry it wasn't longer because it was so good, but now on to book two. -Bubbie

★★★★★ Like to cruise?
Being an older (yuck) woman of 75, I absolutely loved that the protagonist is an older vibrant person who is not portrayed as dotty. I love cruising,and I can tell that this author knows her way around a ship! I love all the backstage scenes, as I Work with community theatre. I always wanted to work on a cruise ship (been a pax on 25) I should apply! Wish me luck? In the meantime, READ THIS BOOK! -truwoman.diana

★★★★★ Exciting every step
I enjoyed the details of the cruise ship and crew. This mystery was very realistic with many twists. I was never sure of the ending. A great way to spend an afternoon. -Indiana Gma

★★★★★ Fun!
I received this book free from one of the book sites. I do not remember which one! This is my honest review.
Wow, Hope Callaghan writes a great cozy mystery with no sex or cursing! I love the way she has Bible verses and a Christian sleuth.
As she comes on board The Siren of the Seas, Mille finds her first day is more exciting than she would have thought. A dead body! Follow Millie learns her new job as assistant cruise director of entertainment and tries to find a murderer.Recommended. -Patricia Top Contributor

★★★★★ Starboard Secrets: A Cruise Ship Cozy Mystery
Starboard Secrets: A Cruise Ship Cozy a book that reminds me of a Murder She Wrote story. Millie is divorced from her husband Roger, who was a private investigator. Millie helped him out with paperwork and other things, so she had a background in sleuthing so to speak. At least on a very basic level. This comes in handy as when Millie decides to take a job on a cruise ship, the first thing she encounters after boarding on ship, is a dead body. Olivia, the woman who worked in the gift shop, to be exact. Millie decides she wants justice for the woman and finds out that Olivia had friends and just as many if not more enemies. The more people Millie encountered on board the more suspects she adds to her list. With the help of Annette, who works in the kitchen, they put together the clues and even set up their own sting, to find the killer. It is a well written story, with likeable characters, and is a great introduction to Millie and the staff of the ship for the other books in the series. - angelpeaches

★★★★★ This first book got me hooked on the series.
I really enjoyed this book and immediately purchased several more in the series. I enjoy the newness of the setting, I haven't read any books set on a cruise ship, so I find this exciting. It's hopeful and light hearted. There's nothing graphic or inappropriate just a good clean mystery. Following Millie on her adventure from one life chapter to another is a fun read. I've read some of the other reviews and I think they're overly critical. The first book in a series sets up the characters and slowly builds relationships. Is it 100% believable or true to life? No. It's entertainment!! Just like movies and television. If you're looking for true to life books stay away from cozy mysteries. If you're looking for a good, clean, entertaining read then order this book. -V. Stewart

★★★★★ Sea side fears
From divorce to cruise ships. New jobs, Murder on deck.
Who's the guilty person, the big question now on every ones lips is,
WHO - DONE - IT ? making new friends and new regimes, Millie has
To go through her lists and notes to find the person responsible for
the woman's murder. A great read, so pick it up and read it. You won't
want to put it down till the end. -Debra H.

★★★★★ Sailing the High Seas with Millie!
I have now read the first 3 books in this Cozy Mystery Series and have enjoyed each one. I highly recommend this series if you want to enjoy sailing the high seas on a cruise ship filled with very interesting staff and passengers! Millie Sanders, the Assistant Cruise Director, is a gem and takes you on adventures in each book that you just don't find (and hope not to) on your standard weekly cruise! I am starting Book 4 and can't wait to see what she does next!! It's even better when Millie is an elderly woman (60 something) and can relate to us older folks! Thanks, Hope! -M. Walters
