The Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Shopaholic Takes Manhatten, and Shopaholic Ties the Knot, are great fun ...Anne George, The Southern sister mysteries will be good to take, Murder makes Waves, Murder Gets a life, Nancy J Cohen also writes an easy light murder series , one of which is Murder by Manicure...If you fo back to past threads by me, you will also see some cruise related mysteries I have suggested....Bon Voyage..Trip
"Running with Scissors" is a new book out by Augusten Burroughs. It's a humorous true story about Burroughs' eccentric upbringing. The cover caught my attention.
This is my book for my cruise April 4-11 Oosterdam.
Any Nora Roberts, JD Robb, Elizabeth Peters, Jayne Ann Krentz, Patricia Cornwell, Iris Johansen, Catherine Coulter (the FBI series), Lisa Jackson or Tess Gerritsen. Can you tell I love romantic mystery? Also anything by Ann Rule (true crime).
I think it really depends what genres you enjoy. I read enough "serious literature" when I was younger and like a more exciting read nowadays.
I've said it before, I'll say it again: "Skipping Christmas" by John Grisham. It may be out-of-season, but it's short, it's light, it's very funny and it has a cruise theme to boot - what more could you ask for?
I am actually taking this one on my cruise....
Death Cruise: Crime Stories on the Open Seas [Paperback] by Block, Lawrence
