"Three cheers for Henrie O, an intelligent, engaging sleuth!"-Mary Higgins Clark When retired newspaper reporter Henrietta O'Dwyer Collins, Henrie O to her friends, receives a call for help, she discovers that love once kindled never burns to ashes. Although she refused Jimmy Lennox's marriage proposal, there is still a special place for him in her heart. She wished him well when he found happiness with Sophia Montgomery, world-famous documentary filmmaker and stepmother to the now grown heirs of a great fortune. Sophia is at odds with the heirs, and Jimmy fears for her safety. He asks Henrie O to come along with the family on a Baltic cruise. Henrie O can't turn down her old friend, though old passions are stirred when he calls. On the voyage she soon realizes this dysfunctional family is plunging toward destruction and one of the travelers has murder in mind. As the ports of call pass-Copenhagen, Gdynia, Tallinn, St. Petersburg-death inexorably approaches. Henrie O works desperately to save Jimmy and to bring hope to lives blighted by anger, resentment, and heartbreak.

"Set sail for a soap opera that is thin on plot and thick with details on the characters' clothes, hair, and jewelry. Who wants the newly remarried Sophia Montgomery dead? Her husband, Jimmy, fears it's one of her stepchildren from a former marriage. He enlists the help of his former lover, retired journalist Henrie O, to find out, and she joins the whole family on a cruise. Kate Reading does the best she can with this fluff. She has a light tone, her characters' voices ring true, her accents are appropriate, and she gives the book a committed reading. This will find an audience with those who enjoy light mysteries.
