Not so great of a book even as a quick holiday read. If this was my first Mary Higgins Clark, I probably would not pick up another. I do like her under suspicion series. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book. It was quick and easy to read. There were a lot of characters to keep straight, and the narrative switched point of view often. Still, I felt it was easy to follow. For a relatively short book, there was a lot packed into it. 2 separate mysteries, lots of bad guys and some pretty intricate plots, and it all gets wrapped up by the end.

I liked the Santa theme, even though it wasn't really necessary to the story. It was just a fun little touch. The two obnoxious little girls added some fun to the story too. Reading this has put me in the mood to head to the library and pick up some more books by this author. ( )

Subtitle: A Holiday Mystery at Sea

The mother/daughter writing team gives us a cozy mystery featuring retired maid and lottery winner Alvirah Meehan, her husband, Willy, and their friends on a holiday cruise.

The plot is suitably complicated, if somewhat outlandish. There’s no murder, though there is an attack, some stolen Santa suits, several criminal types, more than one person with a secret identity, and the usual cast of eccentric bystanders and amateur sleuths. All told, it’s a fun, fast, cozy mystery with a satisfying conclusion. ( )

rabck from dvg; humorous light mystery. Of course the stowaways on the "santa cruise" were caught, but there was another passenger up to no good too. And a passenger sleuth, ala Jessica Fletcher is on board to wrap things up. ( )

A mildly entertaining, predictable mystery set at sea aboard the Royal Mermaid, not surprisingly also known as the "Santa Cruise". Commodore Weed and his sidekick/cruise director, Dudley, offer to take the previous year's most notorious "do-gooders" on a free post-Christmas cruise as a prize for donating money or time to good causes, not to mention, a little free publicity for his new cruise line that he is hoping to launch in the new year. Unfortunately, his wayward nephew, Eric, uses this opportunity to make money for himself by stowing away two criminals on the lam to escape justice in the US by heading for the Bahamas. As expected, some rather banal "madness and mayhem" ends with the ever-lucky sleuth, Alvirah Meehan, figuring it all out just in the nick of time and saving the day for everyone, including the ashes of the Commodore's beloved mother. I have been reading and enjoying Mary Higgins Clark books for many years now, although over time I have not been able to help but notice how predictable her story-telling style is. I am usually able to figure out "who-dun-it" early on in her books, although, for adventure's sake, I always try and second guess myself up til the end in the (futile) hopes of an upset. In short, good for a little distraction, but won't require you to think at all. ( )
