Default Mysteries set on a Cruise Ship

I went researching some books set on cruise ships, I have the library finding some... some are heard to get.. I thought I would share the goodies:

My Body Lies Over the Ocean/ J.S. Borthwick

The Corpse on the Cruise/ Freda Bream

Cruise with Death/ F Draco

Cruise of a Death Time/ Marion Babson

Widows' Cruise/ Nicholas Blake

Cruise Ship Dr./Gerry Yukevich~ this sounds wonderful, the book is a yr old, and still costing a bundle on Amazon and Ebay wonder why.....

Death with an OceanView/Nora Charles..set in Fla, this is good as a cruise book to me

Going Overboard/Christina Skye

Cruising for Murder/Susan Sussman

Thanks for the tip Tripp! I'll have to check & see if the library has any of those.

Don't forget "Birds of Prey" by J.A. Jance. Takes place during a cruise to Alaska.

Trip, Let me know if you read any of them and which one(s) were good. On my previous cruise I took one of those Forensic Mystery ones-with Kay Scarpetta. It was very good-I like that genre of book. I will go to the used bookstore before my next cruise and pick up another one or two.

Brenda, on the plane down, I finished Trace..Patricia Cornwell's latest..It was very good, with Kay getting back to basics....I also read Darkly Dreaming Dexter. a wonderful new spin on a suspense novel...also, the latest in the Shopahoilic series..Shopaholic and sister..such a fun read..

Trip-if you read this post can you tell me : Shopaholic&sister is NOT a mystery is it? It would be a definite read for me if it was:shopping&mystery=good!!
Is Darkly Dreaming a good one-to get you hooked reading it right away? That is what I need in a book: the type that you can't put down once you start.
I will check into getting Trace perhaps for the cruise.
Thanks Trip for the mystery recommendations.
