Here's What I Think: This story grabs me right away. The first chapter throws you right into the crime in question, then takes you back a few days to the events leading up to it, and finally back to the aftermath. It was a very fast read, engaging although choppy at times. I could follow everything but the father's ghost. It just didn't seem to fit as seamlessly as the rest of the story. All in all, I think it was a good plot. It is light enough to take on your summer cruise, without being boring. The story is easy to track and was fun to read. I will be interested to read something more from Jackie Fullerton.
