Knives, poison, strangulation?ER nurse Darcy Cavanaugh is about to show-and-tell all kinds of deathly dos and don'ts for a mystery writers' workshop at sea. Teaching A Nurses' Guide to Murder in exchange for a Caribbean cruise was a small price to pay for what should have been a vacation in paradise. That is, if she didn't have to share deck space with her boyfriend's uptight mother! Aspiring novelist and wife to a powerful Virginia judge, Mrs. Skyler wishes her son had better breeding prospects than a redheaded Yankee from California. To make matters worse, the Skyler matriarch wants to submit her novel to a merciless agent whose biting criticism is matched only by her squawking, sailor-tongued parrot.
In a crazy twist, a real murder takes place and the judge's wife becomes the main suspect. To protect her boyfriend's mother, Darcy scrambles to peg the real killer from a tangled and nutty cast of desperate writers, overzealous fans, and distracting male cover models with killer abs.

Our intrepid heroine, Darcy Cavanaugh, digs out her cruise wear once again, this time to hold a murder workshop on an aspiring writers' cruise. ER nurses Darcy and her best friend, Marie, have special expertise, as well as ulterior motives. Number one, this is a great opportunity for a Caribbean vacation. Number two, Darcy's boyfriend's mother has a manuscript to sell. As expected, the ship holds a cast of quirky characters, including hopeful novelists, romance cover models in kilts, and an infamous literary agent known for her salty talking parrot and her abrasive personality. But when a series of incidents mirror the types of murder Darcy discusses in her workshop, things start to get dicey. And when a real death occurs and her boyfriend's mother is a suspect, it's all Darcy can do to solve the murder before her boyfriend finds out. Darcy is one of the most enjoyable and engaging sleuths around, and Calvert offers another shipshape, all-aboard adventure. Hatton, Maria
