    Love the mature lady solving crime (sub)genre which is a pleasant way to say a nosy old lady nosing in — I read these themes, especially this author who doesn’t browbeat you in her beliefs but does exemplify in plots a Christian lifestyle — 😄💕😄

    Portside Peril by Hope Callaghan was another fun cozy mystery to spend time in the cruise ship world. Millie, Annette, Cat and Andy all help to gather clues and put this suspicious murder/suicide to rest before the Siren of the Seas returns to home port.

    This one was good too! This one had more murders, but also more romance. This time around Millie gets a new job on board that she loves, taking care of the Captian's new little Yorkie pup. Besides trying to solve two murders this time around and her regular duties, she has a new friend on board, the Capitan. He even invites her to have dinner with him in his private quarters! She had a little hard time with these murders but, everything in the end worked out for her.

    While a little cheesy, and a bit too cut and dried, I am really enjoying this series. Probably because it reminds me of the wonderful times I've had aboard cruise ships ... and this one has a cute little dog that makes it all that much better. Plus they are quick and fun reads, in spite of murder.

The characters and setting are a lot of fun to read about! I'm ready for book number 3!

    Nice Sequel Book 2 begins with a man over board and Millie doesn't think it was an accident. As she performs her daily cruise duties she investigates and picks up a few more crew members to help out along the way. Also in the works is a relationship with the ships widowed captain. The series is promising to satisfy with each new tale. Good stories, believable characters and good plots.

    I have basically read this entire series (17 books so far, I think)...they are fun and fluffy and clean. I love the Christian aspect, I love the CRUISING aspect, and the characters are pretty likable... (though admittedly, I sometimes roll my eyes at Millie getting involved once more in something or someplace she has no business being---but since that is the premise of the entire series...there you have it!) Enjoyable "summer" read, all year round.

    Cute, quick read Being a cruise fanatic and mystery lover, these short little books are a gratutous, quick read. They are fun, and tho a bit oredictable, you find yourself liking our heroine, Millie, who took on this new adventure as an assistant cruise director after her longtime husband left her. Good read for a plane trip.

    This was a cute little mystery. It was set on a cruise ship. Millie was so sweet, you just want her for your Grandma. She is very smart and observant. I LOVED little Scout!! He pretty much was the star of the show! This was a fun fast paced story! And with just enough humor thrown in. I am now craving lobster though!

    .Scout is sweet Millie is aboard again and soon gets into detective mode. Man over board sets Millie's senses free to wonder what had happened. Millie is a strong character with a stubbornness that drives her to fight any wrongs. I liked finding more about the staff and their backgrounds. I cannot wait to read more about all of them, and especially Scout.

    Murder on the Sea W good Christian Cozy. She is the assistant Cruise Director but solving murder is her sideline. Great characters and a good strong plot that is developed slowly adding numerous secondary characters. This series is fun and entertaining.

    Ship had just left port and it was MOB! Not to be out done, the fiancé cannot live without her man, so kills herself. Now it is up to the crew detectives to find out what really happened. Easy to read, lots of activity, and a new crew member makes for light reading.

    The captain seems to have taken a liking to Millie and asks her to look after his teacup yorkie while he is working. A man falls overboard and his wife later dies of an overdose. The security officer thinks it is a murder/suicide, but Millie does not think so.
