In this cozy mystery by the author of Killer Reunion, a plus-sized PI’s latest job on an Alaskan cruise ends when her boss’s death rocks the boat.
When famed mystery writer Natasha Van Cleef invites the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency on an Alaskan cruise in exchange for some personal protection, Savannah is instantly onboard with the idea. The voyage goes smoothly—until Natasha and her husband flee the ship and get killed in a suspiciously explosive crash . . .
Awash in regret, Savannah and the MM crew won’t return home to San Carmelita until they expose whoever caused the fatal “accident.” But Savannah and her team discover that Natasha’s life was far more dramatic than any of her bestsellers. Not only was her marriage and literary career splattered with bad blood, but a crazed fan was tracking her every move. With suspects and clues flooding in by the boatful, it’s all hands on deck as Savannah rushes to seize the murderer before she lands herself in hot water next . . .
Praise for Every Body on Deck
“Well-drawn, sympathetic characters; satisfying plot twists; and plenty of humor distinguish this lively, long-running cozy series.” —Booklist
“Humor and romance leaven McKevett’s 22nd whodunit . . . This lighthearted cozy builds to a double surprise ending.” —Publishers Weekly
Humor and romance leaven McKevett's 22nd whodunit featuring Savannah Reid of the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency in San Carmelita, Calif. (after 2016's Killer Reunion). After receiving a terrifying death threat, renowned mystery writer Natasha Van Cleef hires Savannah and her whole detective agency crew, plus Savannah's husband, Det. Sgt. Dirk Coulter, to provide protection on an Alaskan cruise aboard the Arctic Queen. One morning during the voyage, Natasha and her philandering spouse, Colin, slip off the ship to an isolated village without telling anyone. The couple later perish in a fiery car crash near a glacier. This tragedy and related problems with the less-than-cooperative head of the Arctic Queen's security result in Savannah's team and other passengers being booted off the ship. Stuck in the remote little burg, the detectives must determine whether the crash was an accident or murder. This lighthearted cozy builds to a double surprise ending. \n
