Sarah Dean, self-described "accident crime-prone English teacher", and her boyfriend, Dr. Alex McKenzie, are longing for a vacation. No classes, students or conferences for her-no patients, beepers or night calls for Alex.

The two-week cruise aboard the Pilgrim, a luxury yacht owned by millionaire evangelist David Mallory, seems the perfect gateway...until one of the passengers turns up murdered...and those left on board are now both suspects and potential victims.

Could the killer be the eccentric Mallory? His stern secretary Gracie (also sister of the victim)? The voluptuous chef, Andrea Elder? Ezra, the deckhand? Or even Sarah's younger brother Tony, the other member of the crew? Sarah and Alex must find out quickly, or they could become the next victims....

Great story

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I love these books. The characters are terrific, the stories of this author are entertaining. i have a bone to pick with the narrator. She is quite good with the different voices and inflection. However, she needs to do her homework on pronunciation. It is amazingly irritating to be listening to a gripping story and be interrupted by mispronunciations. She never bothered to learn the proper pronunciation of New England place names or nautical terms. There were even some regular vocabulary words mispronounced. Filene's, Monhegan, Mt. Katahdin, Concord, and more. Very irritating

What aspect of Christina Thurmond’s performance would you have changed?

Do her homework before she reads and find out how to pronounce all the words in the books.
