If you longing for an escape from your chaotic and hectic life and want to be on a cruise on the high seas. If you are a book fan, like myself and that cruise was a bookish cruise, geared to nothing but being able to relax with a good book,poolside, take in a show, pamper yourself or have a book by a favourite author signed or hear them talk but you can not find a cruise like this then reading Title Wave is your answer.

Haven't got a Clue, bookstore owner, Trisha Miles and her sister, cookbook author and entrepreneur, Angelica are heading on a vacation to the Authors @ Sea Cruise aboard the majestic Celtic Lady filled with two dozen authors and thousands of their readers. Thriller author, EM Barstow who has a reputation for being difficult and making trouble for cruise employees with a troubled past is to also be a guest on the ship.

 Not being able to sleep in the middle of the night, Tricia ventures out on the ship to discover, EM, the thriller author in her stateroom hanging from the shower with a scarf around her neck. The ships security are quick to assume that the author committed suicide but Trisha believes she may have been murdered. Cathy Cooper, EM's editor and Dori Douglas, president of her fan club are also on board along with Arnold, known to authors and readers as the “prize pig”. Trisha also has a stalker who is sending her gifts while she wonders who this could possibly be Trisha because of her past of solving crime and reading mysteries must find out who wanted the thriller author dead.

Title Wave is an escape to murder on the high seas. I love Tricia and Angelica, they make a great team and made Title Wave a very enjoyable read as with the previous books in the Booktown Mysteries. The family drama and tension and emotion I felt for the Miles sisters also made Title Wave a page-turner that I couldn't put down. I felt that I was on the Celtic Lady along with them and I love how it totally took me away into that world. I would love to be with them Authors @ Sea Cruise, and the murder of the thriller author made it even more of a perfect escape.

 I never neglect to mention that this series is one of the very first and favorite cozy mystery series I have read and Title Wave I would have to say is one of my favorites now.
