WWW: Wednesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading.
To play along, just answer the following three questions....
*What are you currently reading?
*What did you recently finish reading?
*What do you think you'll read next?
Death by Water by Kerry Greenwood. The nice men at P&O are worried. A succession of shipboard jewlery thefts from the first-class passengers is hardly the best advertisement for their cruises. Especially when it is likely that a passenger is the thief. Phryne, with her Lulu bob, green eyes, cupid's bow lips, and sense of the ends justifying the means, is just the person to mingle seamlessly with the upper classes and take on a case on the high seas--or at least on the S. S. Hinemoa--on a luxury cruise to New Zealand. She is carrying the Great Queen of Sapphires, the Maharani, as bait. There are shipboard romances, champagne cocktails, erotic photographers, jealous swains, mickey finns, jazz musicians, blackmail and attempted murder, all before the thieves find out--as have countless love-smitten men before them--that where the glamorous and intelligent Phryne is concerned, resistance is futile
