Summary

Murder in the Caribbean....

Rachel Prince once again joins the Coral Queen for the holiday of a lifetime with her octogenarian friend Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe and her parents. 

One day into the voyage and a nun who is part of an exclusive religious party collapses. It's not long before the death is seen as suspicious.

The chief of security, Jack Waverley, is flummoxed by the case and asks Rachel to assist. All is not what it seems with this religious order and the woman's dying words are a cause for concern.

When the FBI board the cruise liner, Rachel is told to stay out of it. Will she listen? Marjorie is as keen as ever to do a little sleuthing of her own. Can Rachel keep her friend safe while uncovering the mystery?

In the most dangerous challenge to date, Rachel must keep her wits about her to find out what is at stake and discover who is responsible for the nun's murder.

Off to the Caribbean.

The books in this series of mysteries are always fun, with a cast that has gradually become familiar and a series of twists and turns that always keeps me guessing. In Dawn Brookes latest audio, the Coral Queen cruise ship is heading towards the Caribbean and Rachel Prince is on board along with her parents and her elderly cruising friend, Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe. Among the other passengers is a group of nuns who are surprisingly beautiful, one of whom drops dead almost as soon as they leave harbour. With her parents on board, Rachel tries to keep out of the investigation, but her natural curiosity and with encouragement from Marjorie, her resolve is soon dissolved. This time the FBI is involved and there is much speculation about the dead nun. With excellent narration by Alex Lee, Murderous Cruise Habit joins Dawn Brookes other cruise ship novels as an entertaining listen and I eagerly await the next in the series.

Fab book

I really enjoy these books but I’d honestly never go on a cruise when these passengers are on haha These 2 just attract murder & mayhem, thank goodness they do or we’d never have the stories here. Nuns on a cruise, plus dodgy characters, it’s a must & a mystery abounds. Great narration as always, the story flows and doesn’t disappoint

Murderous Cruise Habit

We get another interesting murder mystery on a cruise. We meet some old character and a few new ones. It took me a while but I figured out who did it. I loved it and would recommend it to those who love cosy mystery

Another enjoyable cruise with Rachel Prince. Rachel is on a holiday cruise with her parents and friend Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe when things turn murderous. Rachel dices with death but finally manages to identify the culprit. A great who done it.

Another cruise, another murder!

Rachel Prince is on another cruise. this time to the Caribbean, along with her elderly parents, Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe and Rachels friend, Sarah, one of the ship's nurses. Rachel promises herself that this time she won't get involved in any more murders. Haha fat chance! Also on the ship are a large party of very beautiful nuns and no sooner has the ship set sail when one of the nuns drops dead. As always, this is a well plotted mystery with little touches of humour and enough red herrings to keep me wondering right till the end. It was great to catch up with Rachel, her friends and the crew who now feel like my own friends. The detail of life aboard ship and the stunning locations visited when the ship is in port make this a delight to listen to. Alex Lee, as always, did a wonderful job narrating.

An enjoyable series

An intriguing mystery and a good cast of characters made this book an entertaining listen. The mispronunciation of the Irish nun's name was jarring for me but I doubt anyone outside Ireland will notice. I recommend the series be read in order to get the most enjoyment from it. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

Rachel is at it again and this time the family are tagging along

Another great story this time Rachel is bringing her parents along for the ride and as always in typical Rachel bad luck a murder takes place this time of a nun. As Rachel gets dragged into an investigation whilst trying to ensure her parents don’t know about her run of bad luck on cruises she gets drawn into a scary mystery and is again putting her life in danger to find out the truth. Honestly if Rachel Price is booked on your cruise cancel but that being said these stories are great fun.

I was stumped, bravo!

Alex Lee's Performance - 5 stars, bravo! She's so vocally expressive, and I just love how she's able to give each character such distinct vocal personality. She has no problems with gender or accents which is no small feat to this picky listener's ears. Story - 4 to 4.25 stars! It was fun to have Rachel's parents featured more heavily on this family vacation. I enjoyed learning more about them and witnessing their dynamic with their star sleuthing daughter. Of course, her regular Coral Queen cruise ship friends were on duty and ready to interact with her. And, rounding out this mystery surrounding the death of a nun novitiate first and then yet another cruise ship passenger was Rachel's ever spunky octogenarian sidekick Lady Majorie. Overall - 4.5 stars! The Caribbean destination was brought to life beautifully, and this time I was 100% stumped as to who murdered the victims and why. My 'aha moment' only came after Rachel revealed all, doh! Up next...book 7! I'm looking forward to Rachel and her Private Investigator fiancé Carlos going on a cruise together next in Honeymoon Cruise Murder so much that I've already pre-ordered the Kindle e-book copy (Release Date: August 7, 2020). Hopefully, the audiobook format will be available around the e-book release date as well.
