Miss Aldridge Regrets by Louise Hare

From a murder on land to murders at sea.
 
Lena had been there for them. One she thought she was responsible for, and the others she was set up for.

We meet Lena in a seedy nightclub in Soho where she sings and where she doesn't want to be.

Luckily a friend of her father's finds her a job ,and she makes her way from England to New York in first class on the Queen Mary.

She meets a family who shares their table and stories with her.
 

Something is wrong with this family, though, but perhaps they knew to invite Lena to their table.

Poor Lena gets drawn into the family's nightly dinners and also gets pulled into being questioned about the murder of the family's matriarch.

We follow Lena as her life before getting on the Queen Mary and during her time on the Queen Mary is revealed

I really liked Lena, but the poor girl was always in the middle of something.  Someone was trying to harm her, and she had no idea why.

I enjoyed most of the characters even though they were a bit on the eccentric side.

MISS ALDRIDGE REGRETS is a mystery and family drama all rolled into one.  

Who was the “real” murderer on the Queen Mary….we know who it was in Soho.  

And who was trying to murder Lena?

Did they think she knew something?

It took a little for me to warm up to the story line, but as secrets unfold, you will quickly be turning the pages and enjoying the hustle and bustle.

Those readers who enjoy books set on ocean liners and this time period will definitely enjoy MISS ALDRIDGE REGRETS. 4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
