Forever Doomed by MaryAnn Kempher Review

Title: Forever Doomed
Author: MaryAnn Kempher
Genre: Mystery
Pages: 286
Price: $2.99
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Book Synopsis:

It's not wise to wander the cruise ship Forever alone at night. You might not live to see daylight.

Detective Jack Harney agrees to do an old Army buddy a favor. Curt Noble had some personal business to attend to, he didn’t say what. What he did say was he needed someone to temporarily take over his duties as head of security on the struggling cruise ship Forever. Jack hesitates, but he owes Curt his life so agrees. He’s told the worst mischief he can expect to encounter will be the occasional shoplifter, or drunk. Instead, one week into the cruise, a beautiful red head and a member of the crew are ruthlessly murdered. Are the two murders connected? It’s up to Jack to find out. He must find the killer before the ship returns to Tampa’s port, or worse, before another dead body is found. This won't be easy. The ship is old, it's security systems outdated, and clues are few, or so it seems at first.

It’s not just a sense of obligation that motivates Jack to agree to Curt's request. 


Jack moved thousands of miles, started over, and still can't get Amy O'Brian out of his heart or mind. When she shows up on the ship, as part of a large wedding party, Jack must fight to stay focused. To make matters worse, Amy isn't his only distraction; a sexy and mysterious woman has made it her mission to seduce Jack.

As the body count rises, and time slips away, Jack has to ask himself, “Did someone commit the perfect crime?”


Having not read the first book in this series I was happy that it could be enjoyed as a stand alone novel. I also loved the characters who were so well-developed that you couldn't put your finger on who the killer was. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves mysteries. It's got all the right elements to make you keep turning the pages and, once you get past the slow beginning, is written so that it's extremely fast-paced.
