Reads & Reels Blog Tour: White Water, Black Death by Shaun Ebelthite


I want to thank Reads & Reels Book Tours and the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity and being one of the hosts for this blog tour.

Book Blurb:

Magazine editor Geneva Jones has been sent on a trans-Atlantic cruise to help secure a major advertising agreement from the CEO of the cruise line Rachel Atkinson, but her efforts to win her over are curtailed by a mysterious crew death. Geneva suspects foul play. Rachel insists its suicide. A former investigative journalist, Geneva can’t resist digging deeper, but what she finds is far more devastating. There’s an Ebola outbreak on the ship, everyone is trapped aboard and Rachel is trying to keep it secret.

Geneva knows enough about Ebola to be terrified, but she’s also onto the biggest story of her career. Rachel turns Geneva’s own colleagues against her when she tries to investigate, so she enlists the help of her son, Aaron Atkinson, whom Rachel adopted from Uganda seven years ago, when he was a teenager. Now an isolated and vaguely broken adult, he’s an easily manipulated source. At least that’s what Geneva thought. Off the coast of Bermuda, with the ship anchored in quarantine, Aaron makes a public announcement informing passengers of the outbreak.

Panic surges through the ship. People begin jumping overboard, ignoring a ship-wide lockdown. The ship’s security start to lose control, tasering passengers indiscriminately. A mayday is declared in front of the world’s media, but Bermuda refuses to open its maritime border. The ship limps toward Miami, with more than half of everyone aboard sick. Rachel shocks everyone by resigning after a public lounge is converted into an apocalyptic triage clinic. Geneva has lost her story, Ebola can’t be treated on-board and the nearest help is more than 3,000 miles away.

Review: Wow what a thrilling and fantastic book! I give this book 4 out of 5 thrilling stars! While reading this book I was on the edge of my seat and so anxious to figure out what was going to happen next! The reason I am not giving this book 5 stars is because I was a bit confused in the beginning and wasn’t sure what was going on at first. This probably could have just been me but overall this was a great read! This book was filled with twists and turns that I didn’t see coming! There is action in this book from beginning until end! I highly recommend this book!

I did a little bit of buddy reading with Adrienne @ Darque Dreamer Reads and we both agreed that we will never step foot on a cruise ship after reading this thrilling book!😰😰😰

Here’s the listed schedule of the blog tour hosts and when their reviews will be placed for this book! Happy Reading!

  1. If I were to take a wild guess I’d say the author came up with this idea after the woman boarded the Carnival Magic back in 2014 after a case of Ebola was treated at the hospital where she worked. At that same time that she was on the Magic I was aboard the Dream so it was a little nerve racking to read about once getting off the ship.

  2. I’m so glad you liked it! Thanks for hosting today. BTW, I’ve never really wants to take a cruise (so many people, claustrophobic rooms) but I especially don’t wouldn’t now lol.

  3. I think I’m gonna go with no for cruises too. I feel like I’d be the person who was sick the whole time not enjoying myself. You’ve made this book sound very interesting though. I’m definitely adding it. xoxo😀❤️😀

  4. I would say IF we ever set foot on a cruise ship, we would have to be together, and our luggage would contain gloves, masks, extra non-perishable food and water, a satellite phone, and our favorite books. Lol.
