Alice-Miranda is set for a luxurious cruise aboard the royal yacht Octavia, where Aunty Gee is hosting the wedding of Aunt Charlotte and Lawrence Ridley. Even Ambrosia Headlington-Bear has come along, much to her daughter Jacinta's surprise.Wild weather and rumours of a jewel thief throw the travellers into turmoil, but something else is giving Alice-Miranda one of her strange feelings. Why does the ship's doctor look so familiar? And who is the shy blond boy hiding in one of the suites?When Alice-Miranda seeks help from an unexpected source, will they manage to set things to rights in time for the celebrations? "Another delightful adventure from Jacqueline Harvey. Alice-Miranda's energy and love of life permeate every page and draw the reader into a lively, escapist narrative that celebrates friendship and believing the best of people."  NSW Association for Gifted and Talented Children
