|Plot Summary of My Body Lies Over the Ocean|
|" This is the ninth book in the "Sarah Deane" series by this author and by far this is the most disappointing of all the books in the series. It involves an ocean crossing during the maiden voyage of an ocean liner and a silly revenge plot by descendants of victims of the Titanic disaster in 1912. People whose ancestors were in steerage class on the Titanic and not able to get in to life boats reserved for first class passengers are on the current ship and plotting to kill passengers in the current first class as a means of revenge. I like Sarah Deane and her usual roles, but this book is silly and unbelievable in regard to the plot. I hope the next book in this series is an improvement or I will have to seriously re-evaluate my interest in this series, which up until this book has been quite enjoyable."
