Overview

It's not wise to wander the cruise ship Forever alone at night. You might not live to see daylight.

Detective Jack Harney agrees to do an old Army buddy a favor. Curt Noble had some personal business to attend to, he didn't say what. What he did say was he needed someone to temporarily take over his duties as head of security on the struggling cruise ship Forever. Jack hesitates, but he owes Curt his life so agrees. He's told the worst mischief he can expect to encounter will be the occasional shoplifter, or drunk. Instead, one week into the cruise, a beautiful red head and a member of the crew are ruthlessly murdered. Are the two murders connected? It's up to Jack to find out. He must find the killer before the ship returns to Tampa's port, or worse, before another dead body is found. This won't be easy. The ship is old, it's security systems outdated, and clues are few, or so it seems at first

It's not just a sense of obligation that motivates Jack to agree to Curt's request; Jack moved thousands of miles, started over, and still can't get Amy O'Brian out of his heart or mind. When she shows up on the ship, as part of a large wedding party, Jack must fight to stay focused. To make matters worse, Amy isn't his only distraction; a sexy and mysterious woman has made it her mission to seduce Jack.

As the body count rises, and time slips away, Jack has to ask himself, "Did someone commit the perfect crime?"

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Even though I didn’t read the first book, I could follow the story of Forever Doomed just fine. The book starts by introducing us to Jack Harney, who takes over his best friend Curt’s responsibilities as head of security while the latter takes care of some personal business. Unfortunately for Jack, things are about to get very messy. Another security guard, Matt, and a beautiful woman named Pam, are both found murdered. Jack has to find out who the killer is before the ship returns to Port, or before the killer makes another victim. On top of that, Amy turns up on board as part of a large wedding party. Amy, the girl Jack can’t forget, no matter how much he wants to. With love and the perils of the heart blocking his logic, Jack must act quickly to find the killer. Because it all happens on a ship, and there’s no way to get off the ship until it reaches shore, the book kind of reads like a locked-room mystery. The killer is on board of the ship and can strike again at any moment. This instantly makes the book a whole lot more suspenseful. I figured out the murderer rather quickly though, but that didn’t ruin my fun. The author has a fluent writing style. The characters had a surprising amount of depth, and the plot was solid. Give this one a shot if you enjoy mysteries.

This second book from MaryAnn Kempher was a TOTAL BLAST to read.....The characters are so entertaining. One minute you are giggling, and the next you are wondering "who did it??" Katherine and Scott from Mocha, Moonlight, and Murder are in this book, but you do not have to read the first book to read this one (But it is equally entertaining), Scott's family is on the ship for a wedding. There are two elderly ladies (NeNe and GaGa), they were so much fun. Detective Jack Haney works the cruise for his friend as head of security when all the craziness begins. There is murder that takes place, and Jack has a to find out who is behind it. He has his hands full. This book would be a great book to add to any collection, for yourself or for your friends. It would make an excellent gift.

Katherine, Scott, and Amy from Mocha, Moonlight, and Murder are back. Katherine and Scott are now engaged. All 3 are on the cruise ship Forever because Scott's brother Alex is having a cruise ship wedding. Scott's entire family is aboard. They don't care too much for Katherine because she is the reason he got shot 6 mos ago. Plus, his ex-fiancee is Alex' bride-to-be's best friend. Jack Harney is a Tampa Police Detective temporarily acting as Head of Security on Forever. He has been assured there are never any problems bigger than a rowdy drunk or a shoplifter. Boy is he in for a surprise! He has to deal with three murders, stolen diamonds, sabotage of Chef Phillipe's baked goods, antiquated security cameras and systems, witnesses who aren't much help, lustful attraction to a murder suspect, and all the regular goings on aboard ship. Oh yeah, he also has to contend with Amy! Seems Jack and Amy dated back in Reno and he wanted a future together but Amy broke his heart. He moved to Tampa to get away. Now she wants him back! Poor Jack! If something can go wrong, it will. Jack is a good detective but he simply doesn't have much to work with. He perseveres and saves the day. As if you had any doubts! ;-)) I really liked Mocha... but I liked this book even more. It has a good story line, interesting (and some eccentric) characters, plot twists, humor, murder, lust, sex (with no details)--what more could you want from a cozy mystery. I highly recommend this book. I couldn't put it down. I am definitely reading the next book, Sweet Mystery. 5 Stars
