Millie Sanders’ happily ever after is suddenly destroyed when her husband of 35 years comes home one day and informs her that he is leaving her for another woman.  To make matters worse, the other woman happens to be her “friend” and hairdresser, Delilah Osborne!

After months of mourning and moping around the house, she stumbles upon a help wanted ad in the newspaper for the perfect job as an assistant cruise ship director.  Before Millie can talk herself out of it, she fills out the application and mails it in.  Much to her surprise, not only does the company contact her, they hire her!

Determined to start a new life and new career, Millie boards the ship, ready for a new adventure.  She isn’t on board the massive floating city - her new home - more than ten minutes when a dead body is discovered near the atrium bar.  

Her curiosity gets the best of her and before she knows it, Millie finds herself right in the thick of the investigation. With a little help from a new friend and shipmate, the amateur sleuth discovers that the deceased had more enemies than friends making this murder an even tougher case to crack.

Will Millie delve too deeply and risk losing her job – and possibly her life?

This was a very enjoyable book. Hope Callaghan, STARBOARD SECRETS was the first book in a new series for me. The characters were well developed and the story had lots of actions. This is a a female sleuthes in her "mature years" that keeps you reading to find out who did the murder! Hope Callaghan knows how to tell a good mystery, to keep you guessing! Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. If you are looking for a good,we'll written have found it with this book!

This was a quick read. The plot was interesting but was thin and lacked development.... no intrigue, suspense or action. The same goes for the characters...a bit one dimensional. I couldn't feel any connection to any of them. When I think of "well written" mysteries, I think of authors like Lesley Cookman, Abigail Keam, Alice Duncan and G.A. McKevett. Their books have intriguing story lines and characters you wish you could have as friends. This book was OK. It was free on Nook. I don't think I would pay for future books in this series

Author has given us a really sweet mystery. However, she also gives us a twisted murder weapon. (shudder) Enter the sixtyish amateur sleuth and her new friend as a daring duo. This is a fun romp.

Had a hard time getting into the story. Seems Millie had no qualifications nor was she given any training. Good story though.

Starboard Secrets is the first book in Christian author, Hope Callaghan’s, new cozy series. This book was easy to read and kept my interest from beginning to end. Mildred “Millie” Sanders is delightful and making major changes in her life. She is starting a new job as Assistant Cruise Director, meeting new people, making new friends and discovering that she has a knack for solving mysteries (and murders). Millie and the other characters in this book are normal people everyone can identify with, someone you might meet at a library, store, or stopping for a cup of coffee. Ms. Callaghan has done her usual excellent job of character development. She has incorporated everything in this fun Whodunit … mystery, intrigue and lots of laugh out loud moments and all without graphic violence, foul language, or sexually explicit scenes. Ms. Callaghan gives enough information about the characters to allow readers to get to know and understand them and yet still manages to include all the relevant mystery-solving facts. This author is a blessing to her readers and I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading light, cozy Christian mysteries. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
