The Cuban Heiress by Chanel Cleeton #booktwitter #bookreview #historicalfiction @berkleypub


In 1934, a luxury cruise becomes a fight for survival as two women’s pasts collide on a round-trip voyage from New York to Havana in New York Times bestselling author Chanel Cleeton’s page-turning new novel inspired by the true story of the SS Morro Castle.

New York heiress Catherine Dohan seemingly has it all. There’s only one problem. It’s a lie. As soon as the Morro Castle leaves port, Catherine’s past returns with a vengeance and threatens her life. Joining forces with a charismatic jewel thief, Catherine must discover who wants her dead—and why.

Elena Palacio is a dead woman. Or so everyone thinks. After a devastating betrayal left her penniless and on the run, Elena’s journey on the Morro Castle is her last hope. Steeped in secrecy and a burning desire for revenge, her return to Havana is a chance to right the wrong that has been done to her—and her prey is on the ship.

As danger swirls aboard the Morro Castle and their fates intertwine, Elena and Catherine must risk everything to see justice served once and for all.


Now, I am not going to lie, this author is a hit or miss for me. However, I did enjoy this one. But, it is not as good as The Last Train to Key West. (Her best book, in my opinion!). And, I know I am in the minority. And I will fight to get her books to preview because I love her covers and I know I will love the setting.

This story takes place almost exclusively on a ship. There is intrigue and deception right from the start. Catherine is an heiress or everyone thinks so. Her fiancé is rich and keeps her dripping with jewels. But he is a fraud! Elena is supposedly dead but she is out for revenge. Then there is the alluring jewel thief!

I enjoyed following all the characters and their deceptions. This novel clearly keeps the reader on their toes! Talk about a hunt for who is who and what is what!

Need a story which is fraudulent all the way to the end…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
