The Mystery of Ruby's Port (Book 2)
A ship full of suspects awaits Ruby and Fina.
Will they find the murderer before their own secrets are revealed?
Spring in the Caribbean, 1935.
Cruising to disaster, Ruby Dove and Fina Aubrey-Havelock face down a murderer who is slowly crossing names off the passenger list.
As the SS Sanguine sets sail from the Bahamas, Ruby and Fina eagerly await the excitement promised once they dock in Trinidad. Ruby pays her way as an apprentice to a French designer and Fina tags along as a governess to a wealthy widow’s son. Ruby’s brother has also asked them to find a secret contact on board. Which passengers are genuinely eccentric and which are covering their true intentions?
Soon they have two mysteries on their hands…their contact and a killer.
In a race against time, Ruby and Fina are thwarted by stormy seas, subversive stewards, sordid scandals, salacious seances, scary scorpions, and suspicious swine. They know all too well how many lives hang in the balance should they fail both their missions.
If you like cozy historical mysteries with a twist, then you’ll love Rose Donovan’s fashion-spy-amateur sleuth heroes, Ruby Dove and Fina Aubrey-Havelock.
