Murder on Board by Helena Dixon ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Kitty is relieved they have filled the position of Hotel Manager. Now she can focus on her upcoming wedding and her grandmother can step back from hotel duties as well. But before getting to her nuptials, she has to handle the details of a society birthday party which includes a champagne dinner on board a riverboat. Matt meanwhile is tracking a possible spy to figure out how secrets are being passed through the Naval College. When his quarry serves as a steward at the riverboat dinner and winds up dead, Kitty and Matt must figure out if a member of the birthday party is a murderer.

I enjoy this series more with each new installment. Murder on Board is the 10th book in the Miss Underhay series by Helena Dixon. I started the series with book 4 but it isn't necessary to read the previous books to enjoy this one. 

Matt and Kitty are great characters and I love seeing them work together. Kitty has proven herself and I'm glad she doesn't have to continually fight to be involved in the investigation. 

I'm always suspicious when a new character is introduced in a cozy mystery who seems to be a bit too helpful and efficient. And so I was suspicious the whole time of the new Hotel Manager Cyril Lutterworth. He seemed too good at his job and immediately offered assistance even with things outside of his job description. You'll have to read the book to find out if I had good reason to be suspicious.

One of the reasons I like this series so much is that the area is large and includes a few different people so it doesn't seem ridiculous that dead bodies keep turning up. I also like that Inspector Greville is a competent police detective who values Matt and Kitty's contributions.

This is a fun book with a good mystery. If you are looking for a light read, then you should get this book.
