It should have been a nice but busy dinner cruise for both Kitty and her fiancé Captain Matthew Bryant. While Kitty is catering the birthday party for the daughter of the Chief Constable, Matthew has been assigned to keep an eye on someone. Despite their assignments, Kitty and Matthew continue to discuss their upcoming nuptials.
Kitty and her grandmother had been advertising for a manager of their hotel, and wedding plans had been coming along nicely. However, while aboard the boat, the man Matthew had been tailing was found dead by Kitty, and it is clear he had been murdered. Even before the investigation can get fully underway, the guest of honor’s priceless necklace had been stolen. Murder and mayhem are nothing new to Kitty and Matthew and they immediately begin to look for answers.
This tenth installment of the Miss Underhay series was another enjoyable read in this delightful series. With their wedding coming up soon, Kitty and Matthew focus should’ve been on continuing to make plans. However, with Matthew often working with Scotland Yard and Kitty’s past experiences as a sharp-witted amateur detective, their focus shifts towards the sudden change of events. As per normal for the pair, more than one surprise is in store, and danger follows closely on their heels.
This book was very entertaining, as were the previous books in this series. It has been enjoyable to watch Kitty and Matthew's relationship blooming and it is nice to know they will soon marry. Helena Dixon has delivered yet another intriguing, fast-paced story. Factor in 1930s London and thereabouts, with characters that are very easy to like, excellent pacing and always a good mystery, Murder on Board comes highly recommended.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
