My Review: A travel excursion with suspicious murders that involves eccentric seniors made for an enjoyable read. This novel is light and funny without being a hard thriller read. The characters definitely remind you of seniors right in your neighborhood. How the author chose to describe each character within the story line was creative, especially since it was twenty-five of them. I enjoyed the travel descriptions of places which kept you in the travel mood while engaging you with a flow of characters who may be suspects to the mystery murders.
The book cover: Great book cover: death traveling on shore!! and he has a suitcase! I didnt know rather to laugh or be scared.
Author Marie Moore setting for this book with its location, theme and characters: cruise ship, suspicious murders and senior citizens is well put together and inventive. I liked the book. Shores Excursion is the first of a series from author Marie Moore, so stay connected because more mystery is coming! Shore Excursion sits on my 'Pretty Darn Good Read' book shelf.
