Ghost Ships, Gales & Forgotten Tales - True Adventures on the Great Lakes
Ghost Ships, Gales and Forgotten Tales: True Adventures on the Great Lakes - Wes Oleszewski

Picked this one up from our library. Living in Michigan and going on a few shipwreck tours in the Great Lakes, I thought this one would be a fun read!

 

I am going to use this one for Fear the Drowning Deep!

Rescuing Evil....
Borealis - Ronald Malfi

A really good novella about a crabbing trawler crew that rescues a girl off an iceberg, then all hell breaks loose when the crew learns the hard way that she isn't quite the innocence girl they thought she was.

Gale Force - A 5* High Seas Adventure...
Gale Force - Owen Laukkanen

If you like seafaring stories this is a great one to read. It's action packed and pretty much the entire story is set out on the water, in either the tugboat or car carrier.

I really wish they would make this into a series. I'd love to go on more salvages with the Gale Force crew.


*I received this ARC from the Penguin Random House First-to-Read program in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

A Dangerous Crossing...
A Dangerous Crossing - Rachel Rhys

This is very much a character-driven story about a group of passengers traveling from Britain to Australia on the SS Orontes to start a new life. They each have their own secrets and reasons for leaving their old life behind. As the 5 week voyage progresses, and class lines are blurred and relationships are formed- those secrets slowly rise to the surface under the strain of living in close proximity, with unbearable heat and mounting tension. It all comes to a head the night before departure, in one last explosive scene at their farewell ball.

 

I enjoyed this story and the characters immensely! They were all so well developed. The author also did a fantastic job keeping the reader in suspense throughout the entire book. You could really feel the underlying currents of tension and secrecy running among the main characters. I already miss the voyage myself, so much so, that I'm searching for another good shipboard story to read immediately.

Reading progress update: I've read 28%.
A Dangerous Crossing - Rachel Rhys

I love books set on ships! So far this one has been pretty good. Right now we're getting to know the characters and relationships are developing. There's also a nice undercurrent of tension starting to run through the ship.
