This was meant to be the perfect trip. The northern lights. A press launch on a luxury cruise ship. A chance for travel journalist Lo Blackwood to recover from a traumatic break-in that has left her on the verge of collapse and to work out what she wants from her relationship. Except things don't go as planned. Woken in the night by screams, Lo rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next-door cabin. But the records show that no one ever checked in to that cabin, and no passengers are missing from the boat.

First 3.5 hours I was questioning whether to persist, but absolutely glad I did as the rest of the story kept me looking for opportunities in my day to keep listening to hear what happens next.
The main character drove me mad and I felt a bit trapped in her head (a place I didn’t like because she’s so annoying), but the actual events in the story had me hooked and gasping out loud at each discovery.
Definitely worth a read / listen.

When Bethany's lover is brutally murdered, she has to hide her grief from everyone. But someone knows her secret. And then one day the threats begin. With an ever-growing pile of evidence pointing to her as the murderer, the only way she can protect her secrets is to prove her innocence. And that means tracking down a killer.

I downloaded the audiobook, planning to get through it over the next few weeks, but I was so consumed by the story that I couldn’t pause and I listened to the whole 7 hours over two days!! Bravo encore so good!
