Journal Entry 1 by wingeponine38wing from Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Friday, September 23, 2016

8 out of 10

Loved the Mediterranean setting. Reminded me of the only cruise I've ever taken, from Istanbul to Athens. Would love to go on another one.

This is the 3rd in the series featuring Dotsy Lamb as amateur sleuth. (That name is special to me as I worked with a dear lady, Dorothy - Dottie, whose maiden name was Lamb. But I digress). I usually read series in order, but I had this book handy and it has a lovely blue cover that fits in with the September Sapphire challenge.

The plot was interesting and clever, combining the disappearance of a cruise passenger at sea and a thriving antiquities-theft ring. There were enough twists and turns to make it a real page-turner. There was only one scene that I found a bit confusing and unlikely, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the mystery - especially as it took place on Santorini, where my cruise was scheduled- but unable - to visit because the seas were too rough for the tenders. I enjoyed it vicariously through this book. :-)

Light, fun read.
