    One thought on “Set Sail for Murder”

    1. 3.5 stars A good ending to the series with Henri O going on a cruise on the Baltic Sea at the request of her old friend Jimmy to try and prevent a murder That doesn t work and she ends up solving it I liked this story and it was well written.

    2. My first mystery genre read and it was basically a flop Oddly enough, this light mystery was the right concentration I could muster at the moment I m just happy to finally get through a book I ve been trying to tackle my back of the burner list things I ve put on hold because I d rather be reading so I didn t have much time for reading This book seemed to be the best choice to read inbetween chores from the books I had lined up to read and apparently I was right I felt the others just needed co [...]

    3. Pretty good mystery it was the perfect book to read during my cruise vacation I swear the picture of the deck on the cover was shot on my ship I tend to like the Death on Demand series better than Henrie O but this is the second one I ve read with her and she is starting to grow on me I was not surprised to find out who the murderer was but I thought the characterization was well done and this story had a little depth to it than a lot of cozy mysteries.

    4. Henrie O agrees to go on a cruise to help an old friend convince his wife she is in danger from one of her step kids But who might it be The drama in this book was so gripping I had a hard time putting it down.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    9. This was an enjoyable read This series is not as riveting as the Death on Demand series, but still worth reading.

    10. When I picked this one up, I didn t realize it was 7th in a series That didn t seem to matter too much My biggest issue with this book is that the characters weren t all that likable I didn t care that the victim died because she wasn t a nice person If you don t care that they died, then you probably don t care if their murderer gets caught I sure didn t.

    18. 3 stars Like most of Carolyn Hart s mysteries this one is predictable, and any avid mystery fan will have solved the mystery long before the denouement Still, there are new characters who are well described and portrayed, and Henri O is a master of observation and conversation There are also interesting travel notes as the cruise ship calls at various classical and historically significant ports It was an enjoyable read, and Hart will continue to be on the list of authors I read.

    19. I loved this book I couldn t put it down I loved the visuals I got from reading about the places the characters visited I enjoyed the details in which characters were described as well as the surroundings The only thing was that I guessed the murderer early on I kept rethinking my guess as the story progressed, but in the end it was who I thought That didn t not take away from the enjoyment of the book though Looking forward to from Carolyn Hart

    20. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes murder mystery books It is a little slow at times, too much detail that does not tie into the plot, but this does not get in the way of the book It has nice twists at the end This is the first book I think of the Henrie O series that I have read, so maybe the detail would tie in better if I started at the beginning.

    21. Henrie O is an amazing character I admire her values and her determination to do her duty no matter the cost to herself It s rather like being surrounded by the women I grew up around I always feel good when I ve finished one of her books and I know that my outlook is alterer for at least a while.

    22. It s a good book, of sorts I ve read better, but I ve also read much much worse However, my opinions of characters kept swinging wildly between exasperation at their idiocy, and sympathy Woman, Hart , find a character that we can form a solid opinion on AT LEAST ONE THEY DON T ALL NEED TO BE ENIGMAS

    23. This murder mystery takes place on a cruise ship sailing the Baltic Sea It visits many ports that I visited on my 2003 Baltic cruise so it was an enjoyable read The only problem is that I figured out who the murderer was long before the book ended Still, it was interesting and I would like to read another book by this author.

    24. Lovely murder mystery You always hear that people write in the style of famous authors and it usually isn t true, but in this case it is very like Agatha Christie You have the party of people who all have a motive for murder and by conversation and research and a little observation the crime is solved and the innocent set free to live their lives by a gentle lady Definitely worth reading.

    25. An old fashioned but in a good way to me cozy ish mystery that is a very quick, entertaining read I figured out whodunnit, but that didn t matter On reread, it s a bit too long, and Hart overuses the mother stepmother vs children plot in this series, but I didn t mind I m sad to be done with my reread of the entire Henrie O series, which is top notch cozy territory.

    26. Another good Henrie O mystery even though I was correct about whodunnit I guess Carolyn Hart s books have become predictable to me but I had this figured out almost from the beginning of the book.The good thing is that Ms Hart manages to write in a whimsical and descriptive manner to keep my interest and attention All in all, another rousing successful story.

    27. A good mystery It kept me guessing but in the end my suspicions proved valid She s a little on the poetic side and that messes up the feeling of the rest of the book A little too much time pontificating on life.

    28. The book was okay A little slow reading and I figured out who had done it at about the midway point So the ending was not so much of a surprise Not sure if I would buy of this series but would read if they were free.

    29. Light reading for a mystery This is the first Carolyn Hart Henri O book that I have read and I don t know, based on this one, whether I will read any I expected a little beef and not so much fluff.

    30. I like mysteries It probably started when I was a girl and read every Nancy Drew book written I still like a light mystery that is a quick read These Carolyn Hart books fit that bill Light, enjoyable a quick weekend read She has two different series and their are 24 in all.
