Publisher's Summary

It's 1923 and young war widow fashionista Ginger Gold makes a cross-Atlantic journey with her companion Haley Higgins to London, England, to settle her father's estate. When the ship's captain is found dead, Ginger is only too happy to lend her assistance to the handsome Chief Inspector Basil Reed.
The SS Rosa delivers a convincing array of suspects - the wife, the mistress, a jealous crew mate. To Ginger's dismay, her name has been added to the list! 
With a little help from Ginger's dog Boss, Ginger and Haley navigate the clues (those wartime operative skills come in handy). They must solve the case and clear Ginger's name before they dock - and oh, whatever shall she wear?
A fascinating introduction to a character that will rival Miss Fisher in the cozy genre set in the period between world wars.

A Cozy Historical Mystery

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Murder on the SS Rosa is located on the SS Rosa, a ship going from Boston to London. Ginger and Haley are unlikely friends who are both on their way to London. Ginger is well off and needs to settle her father's estate. Haley is a nurse on her way to medical school. They became friends when Haley was caring for Ginger's father. The differences between classes in 1923 are apparent in some of their discussions.

The narrator did a good job with timing as well as the different voices. I would think it'd be difficult to go back and forth between accents, but she did very well.

Even though the murder mystery seemed secondary to me, with the historical fiction being the primary focus, I enjoyed the story of Ginger Gold and look forward to reading more of her mysteries.

Murder on the SS Rosa--A Sweet Ocean Voyage Murder

I listen to Audio books practically every day as well as read on my Kindle Fire and paper books. I have to say Elizabeth Klett performs Ginger Gold exactly as I pictured her in my mind's ear after reading Lee Strauss's first four cozy period mysteries. With such a great reading, I was able to simply enjoy the fine storytelling of our author without any distraction. Bravo!!! I highly recommend Murder on the SS Rosa! Give it a listen!
