USA Today best selling author Rebecca Forster’s twenty-something books mostly fit within the broad mystery genre, some in the legal thriller subgenre and others harder to classify. Forster is a two-time winner in the Books and Pals Readers’ Choice Awards, with Before Her Eyes topping the mystery category in 2013 and Eyewitness (book 5 of the Witness Series) getting the nod from our readers in 2014.

Oh, Boy! Oh, Bailey!

Just when you think it's going to be smooth sailing, Venus messes with your rudder.

Everyone thinks that Bailey Devlin has taken leave of her senses, but she knows exactly what she's doing when she packs her bags and books passage on the cruise ship where Ethan and the Jazz Boys are playing. She is on a quest to find out once and for all who has hooked her heart: foot loose, sexy, funny Ethan, or handsome, adoring, steady Jeffery. Her plan is perfect: look Ethan in the eye and kiss him once. Bailey is sure that is all it will take for her to know if her ship sailed when Ethan left San Francisco, or if she wants to stay docked in Jeffery's safe harbor. Just when she thinks her plan is watertight, the seas get rough. If she's not careful Bailey will sink both ships before she gets to port.”


In the final installment of this trilogy, author Rebecca Forster brings the story of Bailey Devlin to a satisfying conclusion. It also ties up one major loose end that's been teasing the reader since the start of the trilogy, whatever happened to Bailey's father?

As should be obvious to those that have read the rest of the series, the big question is, will Bailey end up with Jeffrey or Ethan? Or maybe neither? The conclusion of Bailey's adventures entertained and amused me while keeping me guessing until the last possible moment.


This is the third volume of a trilogy. While it might work as a standalone, I'd advise reading the previous two installments before reading this one.

Format/Typo Issues:

Review is based on a pre-release copy. Can't judge the final product in this area.
