Meg's grandfather has been booked to give lectures on a cruise as part of the education/entertainment itinerary, and he's arranged for a passel of family members to join him. The passengers' vacation quickly becomes a nightmare when they wake up to find themselves broken down and in need of repairs. Things get even worse when a crew member announces to all that a woman has jumped overboard, leaving behind her shoes, shawl, and a note. The note reveals she's a disliked member of a writers' group onboard for a retreat, and the group is split on whether this is in-character for her. The captain decides not to investigate, saying he'll notify American authorities when they reach their destination. But Meg's father decides they need to look into whether there was possible foul play while the prime suspects are all stuck on board. It'll be a race against the clock to solve this mystery before they make the necessary repairs and return to shore.

Meg Langslow and her quirky extended family board the Pastime Wanderer, traveling with her grandfather, naturalist Dr. Montgomery Blake, and his film crew. Blake was hired to give nature lectures on this Bermuda cruise and hopes to film a documentary. When popular but demanding romance author Desiree St. Christophe disappears overboard, it looks like she committed suicide. Then no one can find Dr. Blake's bumbling assistant, Trevor. With the captain declining to investigate further, Meg and her father search Desiree's cabin, finding another body. Not trusting the crew, the two work with others in the family to discover the truth. Meanwhile, the ship becomes stranded miles from Bermuda. It needs extensive mechanical repairs, and the crew all but seems to disappear. Meg soon organizes the passengers to help repair and run the ship while ultimately solving the mysteries. Fans will be pleased with the plot twists, humor, natural-history details, familiar and well-delineated characters, and the fresh setting. A satisfying addition to the long-running series.
