Alex Moreland and Something’s Fishy by Liz Lipperman

Murder For HalibutFirst off, let me introduce myself. I’m Alex Moreland, and I’m an FBI agent. I see so much crime in my real job that when I get a few days off, I like to relax and enjoy the company of my girl, the feisty redheaded, sports-loving journalist masquerading as the culinary reporter for the Ranchero Globe.

So what could be more relaxing than a Caribbean cruise with my lady?

Hello! Do you all know Jordan? Nothing – – and I mean absolutely nothing – – is ever simple or relaxing with her. She’s attracted to trouble like a fly to a spider web. And how hysterical is it to think she could judge a culinary contest when she doesn’t even know the difference between caviar and a good Texas bean dip?

Are you starting to get the picture?

When an arrogant Italian chef falls face first into his signature halibut dish the first night of the competition, my girl springs into action and searches for the killer – – even though the man’s death has been ruled accidental. So what happens next?

I’ve been sworn to secrecy, but you can read all about it in MURDER FOR THE HALIBUT, available now from Berkley Prime Crime. Follow Jordan and the Empire Apartments gang as they cruise through Puerto Rico, St. Kitts, and more as she searches for clues to find the person only she believes is a killer.

Will she get into trouble doing it?

Of course, but that’s her story to tell. I’m too busy trying to keep her out of hot water AGAIN.

My question for y’all today is where is your favorite place to cruise? Even if you haven’t had the opportunity to go, I’m sure you’ve dreamed about it. So where would you like to go? One lucky commenter will win a copy of Jordan’s latest adventure in MURDER FOR THE HALIBUT.

    • That’s a fantastic cruise. The glaciers are awesome. Someone just told me they got to actually walk on one. I hope you get to go, but if you do, take a coat even though the cruises are in the summer months. This Texas girl had to buy a coat.

    I’ve been on an Alaskan cruise (Karen, Angela – go when you can; it’s an amazing trip!) and although I’d like to go back, I’d like to go to other places first. So either Hawaii or the Mediterranean.

  6. We enjoyed our time on the Alaska Marine Highway, but it convinced us that cruises are not for us! The book sounds interesting though. Dee

  7. What a great question! Is it too silly to say I’d like to go on a Disney Cruise??? I just think it’d be so much fun. 🙂

    • It absolutely is not silly. I love watching kids at play. We are going with our kids and grandkids on a cruise next summer to celebrate our anniversary. We looked into Disney but thought we would get more bang for out buck with a Royal Caribbean cruise on the Allure of the Seas ship. It has all the Dreamworks characters running around and all the great things for kids, too.

    • Fingers crossed for you, too, Nancy. And the Caribbean is a really relaxing, fun cruise. We went on one from Barcelona and around Italy and docked every day at a different city. I was so exhausted when I got home from vacation–I needed a vacation!!

  13. Years ago I went on a cruise from Boston to Bermuda and LOVED it. I would do it again in a heartbeat (and plan to at some point in the future). Cruises are the best way to travel. So relaxing. 🙂

    • Treat yourself to another cruise, Catherine. They really are relaxing. Just curious. How would you have felt if you were in the coffee shop and you saw 4 chefs and a cute old lady discussing how to kill someone on a cruise with food?? LOL that really happened.

  19. I borrowed a lot from Disney when I wrote a story using their park theme throughout an imaginary cruise – long before I knew Disney planned a ship. I’ve been on a Greek cruise to Crete/Mykonos/Ephesus that I’d love to do again. I was amazed, though, to find grafitti on the cactus in Athens! The second time I wanted to go to Greece, they canceled flights because of unrest there (it would not necessarily have deterred me but I had no choice). I’d cruise Europe anytime and have yet to see Barbados, so that would be wonderful as well.
    I’ve been seeing the author’s name a lot on new release lists. Hope I win so I can check the books out for myself. Love the play-on-words title.

    • Judy, you’re seeing my name a lot on new releases because I have FIVE new books coming out this year. When I sold my first story to Berkley, the editor loved it but she was looking for a cozy and said she’d have to ruin my ghost mystery to make it one. So, I sold three books on proposal to her and then had to write them. The ones you see now are all the books I had already completed before I sold. HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE is the story that the first editor had to pass on and is the one that ultimately started my career. That one is coming form Midnight Ink in May. It’s a soft boiled mystery, ,which means it has sex and language and is R rated instead of PG.
      I’ve never been to Greece and would absolutely love to go there.
