Fun Cruise Reads, Part 4

Unsinkable Mister Brown: Cruise Confidential – Brian David Bruns

In the third of the Cruise Confidential series, we finally start to understand why Brian has pursued this woman he met for three days and followed around the world.9780974521763-Exterior

In some parts, I loved Bianca; in others, I thought she was selfish and a martyr  But what is indisputable is that this man loved this woman with a passion few of us are lucky enough to experience.

The book begins with the three day trip to Romania where we meet Bianca and her parents, the Pops, who are so endearing, you will want to meet them too. As they traveled together, we traveled too, thanks to Mr Bruns’ descriptive ability to make us feel as though we are there.

Back on the cruise ships, life is not ideal, and we are reminded of the difficulties of long distance relationships especially in the intense environment of ship-life.

I feel like I need to go back and re-read the first two books, now that I have a better understanding of the relationship.

I’m guessing there’s another book to come… hope so!


Murder Caribbean-Style – Diane Rapp

A travel writer takes a free cruise on board the ship she used to work on and finds herself investigating the murder of her ex.

I enjoyed the lighthearted murder-mystery set on a cruise ship and several familiar Caribbean islands. The cast of characters was interesting, including an undercover magician, a psychic, and the various ship’s crew, together with their local contacts on the islands.

Overall, this was a great vacation read, light and breezy, with a little mystery to boot. I look forward to the next two in the series.


A Man Overboard – Shawn Hopkins

Since this book mentioned cruising, I thought I’d give it a try. man overboardAlthough part of it was set on a cruise, the main theme was a Russian spy mystery. A man searches desperately for his missing wife and son while people around him end up dead or missing as he gets closer to solving the mystery.

This book was a page turner and I was immediately sucked in to the story of this couple, so desperately and passionately in love, trying to take a cruise vacation before beginning her cancer treatments.

Definitely worth a read if you enjoy a good spy mystery.
