Product Description

Tricia and Angelica leave Booktown behind for a pleasure cruise, but they’re going to need their life jackets because a murderer has also booked passage—in Lorna Barrett’s New York Times bestselling series.
While her bookstore, Haven’t Got a Clue, is rebuilt following a devastating fire, Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica, decide to book a cruise for some much needed R&R. Naturally they choose a Mystery Lovers cruise, where they can ponder whodunnit in deck chairs while sipping colorful drinks and soaking up some rays.
But the fun is cut short when a fellow passenger is murdered for real. Is the killer a famous mystery author, one of his fans, or a member of the ship’s crew? As Tricia tries to find the killer before they reach port, she may be cruising for a bruising...

From the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cozy mystery 25 May 2017
By drebbles - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Devastated after the death of her ex-husband, Tricia Miles agrees to go on a cruise with her sister Angelica and several of their friends and neighbors. Since this cruise is all about books and authors Tricia hopes it will be a nice relaxing vacation. But Tricia is known as the Town Jinx back in Stoneham New Hampshire and that reputation seems to follow her on the cruise when a fellow passenger dies and it may be murder. The ship’s crew seems reluctant to investigate the death so Tricia does some investigating on her own. Angelica warns Tricia to be careful but will she be?

“Title Wave” is the very nicely done tenth book in Lorna Barrett's Booktown cozy mystery series. Barrett does take a big chance on moving the location of the mystery from Stoneham, New Hampshire to a cruise ship but it works wonderfully in this book (it helps that many of the regular series characters are on the cruise ship). Barrett does such an excellent job of the cruise ship setting that I felt like I was on the ship alongside Tricia and Angelica. One of my favorite things about the series has been the relationship between characters- especially Tricia and Angelica's relationship which has developed and grown throughout the series and grows even more in this book as certain things are revealed about Tricia's past (now I know why Tricia always eats tuna sandwiches for lunch - so well done by Barrett! As for the mystery, it is nicely plotted with plenty of suspects, red herrings, and a few surprises to keep readers guessing who the killer is.

“Title Wave” is another great cozy mystery by the always enjoyable Lorna Barrett.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Murder Read 3 June 2017
By J & L Rigod - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a very different setting for the sister sleuths, Tricia and Angelica Miles. Angelica, cookbook author and busy business owner, convinces the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce to join her on a cruise to Bermuda. Tricia is still reeling over the death of her ex-husband and comes aboard the trip to get away for awhile.

This is a special cruise. The main celebrities are celebrated fiction book authors, for the most part. Tricia is excited to be among several authors she has hosted at her book store, "Haven't Got A Clue." That is excepting one... EM Barstow.

Tricia and Angelica's family is among the cruise as is her staff, which is considered Tricia's family as well. It is a happy group leaving the cold of winter in New Hampshire.

This book deviates from the others in the series as we get a closer insight into Tricia's and Angelica's personal life and their past. In fact, yes, there is a murder but, to me, it was minor compared to the interactions of the crew, authors, and other cast of characters.

Tricia not only has a murder to ponder but has a secret admirer to spice up her life. We learn a lot about why Tricia has so many borders set up around herself.

This was an interesting inner look and the murder is solved rather surprisingly.

I look forward to the next volume in this series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Even while on the ocean, Tricia still finds a dead body. 27 July 2017

Tricia now owns the building in which her store is located. She was able to reopen the store before the Christmas rush. Since the holidays were now over, the stores did not get many customers. The Chamber of Commerce decided to help fund a week long cruise on the Celtic Lady. This is a cruise that featured many authors and other book sellers. It would give everyone a vacation and allow them to meet and greet with the authors. Tricia, Angelica, Antonio, Ginny (with the baby), Grace and Mr. Everett was on board. Along with them, were several of the other shop owners. Can you guess what Tricia stumbles across on board? Yes, a dead body, an author by the name of E M Barstow.
She had signed books in Tricia's store before and was a very nasty lady. This cruise had not mellowed her personality. E M Barstow was just a mean person. She was not happy when she had to wait with everyone else to board. The food was not up to her standards. Nothing was right. So when she is found dead, there is a boatload of suspects. As usual Tricia gets involved. However, the cruise line detective maintains that is was suicide. He doesn't know Tricia, so of course she is a suspect. She is later proven innocent by the shipboard cameras.
Since the cameras show no one else coming or going, they rule suicide. Tricia starts receiving gifts while on board. Does she have a secret admirer? She finally thinks that it is Angelica. However, she denies it. By the time the vacationers board the bus back home, Tricia figures out the murderer (and is almost killed herself) and the identity of her secret admirer. While the sisters are in Bermuda, Angelica surprises Tricia with a luncheon attended by their mother and father. Tricia is made to feel bad by her mother and she storms out. Angelica tells off their parents. She later catches up with Tricia and they both decide to write off their parents for a long while. When their bus returns to the Stoneham municipal parking lot, there stands their father waiting for them. Their mother did not come. Father is wanting to know his daughters better. Angelica does not introduce Antonio, Ginny or the baby to him. The next book will be coming out in August of 2017. Can't wait to read it.

By KAY - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed all the other books This time NO the ending was not satisfying One person is getting away with with and profits from bad behavior while playing the part of a lackey the killer just falls off the side of the ship Another shows disregard for basic courtesy the main person suddenly gets cured for a eating disorder I kept expecting things to pull together at the end. No more Lorna Barrett for me. I have never done a review of a book before

3.0 out of 5 stars I have read all of the previous books in this series and enjoyed each of them 18 June 2016
By Avid Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well, I shall be the first not to give this book 5 stars. I have read all of the previous books in this series and enjoyed each of them. This book just didn't live up to the previous ones in this series.
There were many twists and turns in the plot, but none were satisfactorily explained in the end. We were left hanging with too many of the characters in the story. Too many dead ends. I also really got tired of hearing what, and how little, Tricia ate.
$12.99? Really. The price has no bearing on my review, just an opinion that I thought it was very expensive for a cozy mystery in Ebook form.
