Oliver Twisted by Cindy Brown
I really enjoyed this book! It’s been a while since I had a book grab me by the face and insist I read right through, but this one did it…
~The Ninja Librarian
“Oliver Twisted” is delightfully funny, thoroughly entertaining, and will keep you guessing until the thrilling conclusion.
~My Funny View of Life
…talk about a ‘twisted’ mystery. Usually in a mystery, the characters may not be as they appear. In this book, the actors are dressed in period costumes, so you know darn well that they aren’t as they appear…
I enjoyed the glimpse into cruise life and the behind-the-scenes life of the crew, especially the cast of the on-ship musical production.
~Cassidy Salem Reads & Writes
The pace of the story is good and the antics of the orphans and Oliver as well as the adult characters make this an enjoyable read.
~Christa Reads and Writes
Ms. Brown does a good job of portraying life on a cruise ship from the perspective of a member of the crew. She gives you a glimpse of the crew living quarters and their dining.
~Bill’s Book Reviews
Fast-paced and funny, Oliver Twisted is yet another outstanding read from Cindy Brown.

Orphans. Thieves. Murder. And an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet!
When Ivy Meadows lands a gig with the book-themed cruise line Get Lit!, she thinks she’s died and gone to Broadway. Not only has she snagged a starring role in a musical production of Oliver Twist, she’s making bank helping her PI uncle investigate a string of onboard thefts, all while sailing to Hawaii on the S.S. David Copperfield.
But Ivy is cruising for disaster. Her acting contract somehow skipped the part about aerial dancing forty feet above the stage, her uncle Bob is seriously sidetracked by a suspicious blonde, and—oh yeah—there’s a corpse in her closet.
Forget catching crooks. Ivy’s going to have a Dickens of a time just surviving.
