Murder on the SS Rosa is a fun 1920s cozy set aboard a steamship on the way to England. Ginger Gold is smart, sassy and with a title to boot. It’s no wonder she and her friend Haley are invited to dine at the captain’s table, where she gets a clear view of the players and the conflicts going on aboard. When the captain is found murdered, Ginger’s curiosity gets the better of her and soon she is investigating alongside the handsome Chief Inspector Reed. Ginger is clever, but she has a nose for trouble that doesn’t make her popular with the suspects - but never doubt the powers of a determined mind and bootleg whiskey.
Murder on the SS Rosa is a cute cozy with a touch of romance. It will appeal to fans of the Miss Fisher mysteries and other light 1920s cozies. The novel is short, but entertaining.

I received a copy of Murder on the SS Rosa from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
On her way across the sea to settle her father's estate, Ginger Gold finds herself tangled up in a murder mystery on board her ship, the SS Rosa. She must clear her own name before landing in England, and solve the case of who really killed the ship's captain.
It's 1923, and young war-widow fashionista Ginger Gold makes a cross-Atlantic journey with her companion Haley Higgins to London, England, to settle her father's estate. When the ship's captain is found dead, Ginger is only too happy to lend her assistance to the handsome Chief Inspector Basil Reed. The SS Rosa delivers a convincing array of suspects - the wife, the mistress, a jealous crewmate. To Ginger's dismay, her name has been added to the list! With a little help from Ginger's dog, Boss, Ginger and Haley navigate the clues to solve the case and clear Ginger's name before they dock.
