PORTRAIT OF LIES
by Clair M. Poulson
But the tranquil voyage quickly turns into a nightmare at sea. The Shotwell paintings have disappeared, and amidst the chaotic hunt for the thief, a murderer is free to roam the halls of the ship. Ariah finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and miraculously escapes the murderer—for now. But another victim is not so lucky...
The crime is eerily reminiscent of the death of Trey's mother so many years before. But this time, the young detective has the resources he needs to track the killer. As the pieces of the puzzle begin to come together, they paint the chilling picture of a sinister plot years in the making. In a manhunt that takes him from the high seas of the Pacific to the wilderness of Australia, Trey will stop at nothing to solve the crime and protect the woman he loves.
The most fun thing about this book for me is that-- I was reading about this murder mystery that takes place on a cruise while actually being on a cruise-- it really brought it to life :)

Clair M. Poulson is one of my most favorite authors and I have been reading his books for a long time--
I was intrigued with this book and how just as someone confesses to the crime a twist was thrown in and the plot thickened and the mystery continued with another issue needing to be solved.
Really keeps you reading and wondering and scrambling to see what else could possibly be thrown into the story line--absolutely loved it!
This book has it all!
