Dressed to Keel

Dressed to Keel is Candy Calvert’s debut book, the first in a series about an ER nurse, Darcy Cavanaugh, on a cruise ship. In this one she’s a passenger – I’m thinking in the next two, she’ll be a ship’s nurse.

Darcy has come onboard the ship with her best buddy, Marie, who is the ship’s nurse in this book. She needs an escape from the ER and her disastrous private life, and the cruise up the coast of the North Atlantic is just what she needs.

What she doesn’t need is the suspicious dance instructor giving her those looks and her best friend being accused of robbery.

See, someone is luring the old ladies on the cruise to the spa and stealing their jewelry. When Marie is accused, Darcy has to go into action, with or without the help of said suspicious but gorgeous dance instructor, Luke.

Dressed to Keel is a hoot. Candy Calvert has a wicked sense of humor that had me laughing most of the way across Louisiana. There are a lot of characters in this book, but Darcy’s way of giving them nicknames made them easy to picture. Her trust issues made her relationship with Luke on shaky ground, but still so sexy.

This is one of those books that stays with you long after you read it. I can’t wait for the sequel, Aye Do or Die!
