Wordsmith Jaine Austen's ship has finally come in. Her new teaching job on a fancy cruise line nabs her a free vacation -- and access to a 24-hour buffet! But sooner than you can say "bon voyage," Jaine's all-expenses-paid trip to the Mexican Riviera seems destined to be a wreck -- beginning with the discovery of her cat, Prozac, in her luggage. The cruise goes from bad to worse when a new acquaintance is discovered with an ice pick protruding from his chest just two days after the announcement of his engagement. Between hiding a furry fugitive, and baiting the hook for a clever murderer, Jaine is about to dive into her most dangerous case yet.
