Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical

RT Rating

In the late 19th century, the Jubilee Palace showboat is home to Gwen Barlow and her mother and brother. When they dock in Moss Hollow, Ky., Gwen discovers that the small backwoods town is the home of lead actress Marianne Dresden.

Soon murder is afloat, and when Marianne's father is found murdered
on the boat, it must remain docked
until the local sheriff solves the murder. Gwen gets involved and ends up in
great danger. She may be next on the killer's list.

Though the novel is slow at
the beginning, the pace increases
as the mystery becomes more
complex and the list of possible
suspects grows. The addition of a
life-altering event in Gwen's life
adds substance as sparks fly between
Gwen and the Jubilee Palace's handsome captain, Carson Stockwell.
