Joelin, I hope your bringing your fur-lined shoelaces to Calgary - It's COLD out there!
As for the book, I'm still recommending "Skipping Christmas" by John Grisham. It has a bit of a cruise theme too!
I have some great suggestions, I swear in a former life I was a librarian...Here we go, light, and engrossing...A tTip to the Beach...Melinda Blanchard, Lucia Lucia, Adriana Trigiani, any mystery by Laurence Shames, Welcome to Paradise, or the Naked Detective are a couple..he has quirky funny mysteries all set in Key West, Any of the Nancy Cohen series, Permed to Death, Hair Raiser,or any of the Anne George series..Murder Boogies with Elvis,Murder Makes Waves... I could go on and on, but I'll leave you with these gems....ENJOY, Trip/monday Chat Host
