Bayou doctor saves burned-out atty & he is in the right place/right time to save her from coverup plot.
I had to skim most of this book. It was a mess and I’m not sure if I should keep trying these books. 2 out 3 have been meh!
Secret objects lost and found & relationships forged. Hints of House Party trope as most of the book is set on a transatlantic cruise ship.
Ooooh I love Murderbot already, so sympathetic and confused! Great audio narration too by Kevin R. Free.
