★★★★★ Loving this new series!
Can’t wait to see where this goes next! One of my favorites I didn’t want to stop reading this one! -Amazon Reviewer -June

As I mentioned in last week’s newsletter, getting crewmembers back home was only one problem the cruise lines faced during the shutdown.

The mega ships are built to run 24/7, 365 days a year which meant they had to keep on cruising. Scroll to the bottom to get a glimpse of what it was like.

If you’re looking for some fun-filled, back-to-back mystery reading, I have 2 Millie’s Cruise Ship Mysteries for just 99¢ this week. Save $8.00 if you grab them both while they’re on sale or read them free in Kindle Unlimited. (See Below)

In other news, I’m wrapping up the final edits for the third book in the Easton Island Series, which will be ready for you soon!

“Tenant and Trouble,” the second book in my Liz and the Garden Girls / Lack of Luxury Series, will be released in late November or early December. It’s currently on sale as a pre-order

Tenant and Trouble is Book 2 in the Lack of Luxury Cozy Mystery Series


Millie has a curveball heading her way, so a new cruise ship mystery will be “in the works” soon. A new “Divine” story is planned for January-ish, followed by a Made in Savannah story.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Easton Island - The Letter book cover

Shortly after returning home from her whirlwind trip to Easton Island, Morgan receives a phone call from her mother’s best friend, letting her know that she’ll be moving out of Looking Glass Cottage and hints there is trouble brewing at Easton Estate.

Ronni warns Morgan that she might want to head back sooner rather than later. Anxious to find out what’s going on, she rushes back to the island.

When she arrives, she’s greeted with chaos after a family guest brings unwelcome change to Easton Estates and Morgan quickly makes tackling the problem a top priority.

As the events unfold, more of the family’s secrets are revealed, including who resides in the secret wing of the estate, and Morgan finally reads her mother’s letter.

After reading the letter, will Morgan embrace the island and her newfound family, or will she flee like her mother did so many years ago?

Cruising Without Passengers.
What’s a crew to do?
Part 3:

Staying near their homeport (in this case Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale), “our ship” docked every so often to refresh – fuel up, get supplies. Because they had no passengers on board, they kept very few areas open…the bridge, cabins for the crew and places to eat.

I can only imagine how eerie it was to have the dining rooms, the lounges, the theatre, the spa, the pools…everything shuttered. (I’m sure there’s a scary story just waiting to be written…)

To entertain themselves, “some” of the ships’ crew members engaged in “horn wars.” (You can find some of those infamous battles by going to Youtube and searching for cruise ship horn wars 🙂 )

My final segment – what it took for the ships to return to service – is up next. How do you prepare to welcome thousands of passengers back on board when you have only a small staff and crew left?

Find out soon!
