cb oliver twisted

An ARC honest review for Henery Press Books via NetGalley.

Ivy and Uncle Bob have gone undercover on the S.S. David Copperfield to find a gang of thieves, only to find her new cabin mate dead in the wardrobe!

Ivy is to play Nancy in the on-board musical version of Oliver Twist, on the Charles Dickens themed ship of Get Lit! cruises.  While Uncle Bob is posing as a rich Texas rancher on holiday.

When a second death occurs, the stakes get high.  Can Ivy solve the case before the killer drops the final curtain?

Highly entertaining Ivy Meadows mystery.  Filled with a bunch of weird and wonderful characters for real and from Dickens novels.  Will keep you guessing right until the end.

4 Stars****

Orphans. Thieves. Murder. And an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet!

When Ivy Meadows lands a gig with the book-themed cruise line Get Lit!, she thinks she’s died and gone to Broadway. Not only has she snagged a starring role in a musical production of Oliver Twist, she’s making bank helping her PI uncle investigate a string of onboard thefts, all while sailing to Hawaii on the S.S. David Copperfield.

But Ivy is cruising for disaster. Her acting contract somehow skipped the part about aerial dancing forty feet above the stage, her uncle Bob is seriously sidetracked by a suspicious blonde, and—oh yeah—there’s a corpse in her closet.

Forget catching crooks. Ivy’s going to have a Dickens of a time just surviving.
