    1. This was a quick, cute read. Ms. Angie Amalfi has had her sights on hard boiled San Franciso homicide detective Paavo Smith for quite a long time. She keeps hoping he'll pop the question. In this romp, Angie finally gets him to go on a cruise to Acapulco with her. The twist? The cruise is on a freighter with a motley international crew and some industrial spies! Not a single luxury in sight and very little romance. Along the way some of the spies believe Angie is a spy herself and will stop at n [...]

    2. This is such a cliche from end to end. It was almost an embarrassment to read. Really!!!; Angie Amalfi, the well off daughter of successful Italian immigrants, is confused with and suspected as being a vicious and ruthless industrial spy? This "airhead"? While Angie is very intelligent, perceptive and self-driven than the description "airhead" would imply; she, unfortunately, too often portrays traits that would lead you to this conclusion. They rear their ugly head in this book. Paavo Smith, he [...]

    3. A delightful read. "Cooks Overboard" is entertaining and really brings the reader on an adventure along with its main characters. Never a dull moment.Angie Amalfi is charming and so is her boyfriend, Paavo. The brief moments where the perspective changes to Paavo's may be slightly confusing (it's difficult to tell when they suddenly switch halfway through the chapter), but it also offers a bit of an insight into his thoughts on Angie and what's going on around them, something which really helps [...]

    4. This isn't even a good beach read. Sometimes I just want a book to read that requires no effort. I got through it quickly-didn't need much effort but I wouldn't go out of my way to read another. The characters are one dimensional and the plot is very muddy. I'm pretty tolerant and will generally give a series multiple tries but this isn't one that I'm willing to read deeper in. In fact it is pretty clear that the person who did the cover painting didn't even read the book as the painting has not [...]

    5. Angie and Paavo (homicide investigator) are taking a cruise to Acapulco. Well, it is on a freighter. Not very luxurious but all is going well until they start thinking she is the infamous Hydra. The ship docks in Mazatlan and more action and adventure begins. A fun book, looking forward to the next book in the series.

    6. Considering that I usually like the cozy cooking mysteries, I found this one pretty boring. May try this author again, but since most of the characters were just plain silly, I will probably skip her unless I find her on the bargain table at a book sale.

    7. Another good entry in the series with Paavo and Angie going on vacation and of course getting involved in a mystery. I found this to be an easy read and was definitely kept guessing until the very end about who the Hydra actually was.

    8. I really enjoyed this book; probably the best in the series so far. Humor, intrigue, some bumbling spies from the past.
