Novels by Melissa Baldwin


Poison in Paradise 

a mystery novel 

Life on the open seas is everything Lexi Walker ever wanted! Her position as the part-time lifeguard and part-time Port Adventures coordinator for Epic Cruise Line has her traveling around the world and living her dream. And she has high hopes that her latest trip to the tropical Bahamas will be nothing short of magical.


Hopes that are dashed all too quickly.


What starts as a chance connection with a friend from her past, who is sailing on Epic to celebrate her recent marriage, turns into a deadly tragedy when Lexi finds the groom dead in a resort's hot tub! Was it an accident? Or something more sinister? Suddenly Lexi finds herself thrust into a potential murder investigation where everyone is hiding something and no one seems innocent. Between trying to help the widow in desperate need of support, sifting through the victim's friends and family who are anything but grieving, and trying to prove to her boss, the way-too-tempting Jack Carson, that she's an asset and not a liability to Epic Cruise Line, Lexi has her hands full.
