Mystery Of The Mermaid
Book: Mystery Of The Mermaid , by Merla Zellerbach, ISBN10: 0915090740, ISBN13: 9780915090747, firefallmedia, November 2009, Hardcover
A luxury cruise ship hosts modern day romance, mystery, and suspense.
Hallie Marsh, a young single woman who has it all, suddenly finds herself a breast cancer survivor. Her wit keeps her calm and on course. Hoping to adjust to her new body image, she takes a luxury cruise. But strange things happen on board: a passenger disappears, a body turns up in a cabin, and a handsome journalist romances her unexpectedly.
Fans of old-fashioned romantic mysteries will welcome Zellerbach's lighthearted puzzler set mainly aboard a Norwegian luxury liner on a 42-day South American cruise. The paths of 32-year-old San Francisco native Hallie Marsh, a PR whiz and breast cancer survivor, and Dan “Cas” Casserly, a magazine journalist who's one of the ship's lecturers, collide in an adventure that includes a missing passenger who may be a murder victim, a weird parapsychologist and a French divorcée. Despite Hallie's initial fears that her double mastectomy will doom any romance between her and the magnetic Cas, Zellerbach (Secrets in Time) manages to put a humorous spin on the couple's courtship. One caveat: some readers may be disappointed that Cas turns out to be the key crime solver instead of Hallie. (Dec.)
