A Little About the Book

In order to make a little extra cash, Val Deniston agrees to take on an unusual request – catering a re-creation of the last dinner served on the Titanic on Otto Warbeck’s yacht. Otto has assembled a strange array of guests to play a murder mystery game he created while they dine. What could possibly go wrong? When Otto disappears during the dinner, Val knows it is up to her to figure out what happened to Otto before s’more murders take place.

Can I Start This Series In The Middle?
This was the first book in the series I read and I did not feel left behind on Val’s backstory. The mystery stands alone as well. You would be comfortable picking up this book, even if you haven’t read others in the series.

Marie’s Thoughts

I read this book when I was on vacation with my family and it was a great vacation read. It was easy to pick up and put down and still follow what was going on in the story. The characters were relatable, and I always enjoy when the protagonist has a strong relationship with one of their grandparents. The Titanic tie-ins were a lot of fun and left me craving more information about the historic voyage, as well as craving a s’more (or two)!
