Donna Andrews' capable detective Meg Langslow faces a new mystery in Terns of Endearment. This time Meg and her entire family are off on a cruise to the Bahamas. Soon the ship has broken down in the middle of the ocean, a much hated romance writer has jumped (or been pushed?) to her suspected death, Meg’s grandfather’s assistant is missing, and the ship’s captain isn’t cooperating.
As always, Andrews offers us a light-hearted mystery peopled by lovably capable eccentrics. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a bit of escape and note that the book is enjoyable even if you haven’t been following the series.
