Synopsis from Goodreads: When Savannah signs on to perform glassblowing on a ship, part of the appeal is that she'll get a chance to reconnect with her boyfriend Edward's family. An added bonus is that Edward's cousin, Ian, will be joining them on board. But when Ian disappears at the beginning of the cruise, the ship's authorities initially consider it suicide. Savannah tries to balance her growing suspicions with work on her shows, but her relationship with the other glass artists begins to crack. And she can't let love color her judgment when Edward suddenly jumps to the top of the suspect list. His fate is in Savannah's hands, and she'll do everything she can--on land and sea--to clear his name . . .
My Review: There were some things about this book that were good. The writing was nice, the pace was pretty good, I loved that it was set on a cruise ship and featured a glass blowing class! I had to google that and discovered that it is indeed a real thing! Now all of that being said I found the book to be completely unbelievable. I just had a really hard time with how the mystery unfolded, the supposed back story of one of the characters and the way that the main character was able to get information. It just didn’t seem plausible to me. I may give the authors others books a chance though because I loved the parts about glass blowing and the writing was good.
