Feel free to join in by posting your own FCFPTI and linking below

High Seas Homicide (Hannaford British Cozy Mystery Book 1) by [Collins, Danielle]High Seas Homicide (Hannaford British Cozy #1) by Danielle Collins

Lucy Hannaford was in the middle of racking her brains for what she would do next when her husband John came home from work. He worked as a tax attorney for the city of London- the least glamorous job anyone could possible have. She didn’t envy his work. He came home weary, his head down, his back hunched over. He went straight for the armchair every day, not even bothering to change his clothes. He pushed his shoes off his feet, then scrounged around for the television remote.

Based on this intro, would you read more or pass on this book?

  1. Oh, that is a scene that could lead to domestic disputes, at the very least! Sounds good.

  2. The opening paragraph is good enough for me to want more. I’m really intrigued by the cover and title. I don’t think I’ve ever read of a murder committed aboard a ship. Hope its good.

  3. I read this one and really liked it. I have the second one on my Kindle waiting to be read.

  4. I love mysteries set on ocean cruises. I’ve read several and always think they are like ‘locked room’ books. After all, where could the perpetrator go? Overboard? LOL

  5. Bet its a fun read!

  6. Vicki, this first in a series sounds like a fun one; hope you enjoy it.

  11. Sounds what a lot of us do when we come home from work. The beginning is relatable, I’d keep reading.
