“Like getting a lovely cuddle!”
Oh Ms Brookes, how you spoil us with these books, elegantly and eloquently narrated by Alex Lee. Once again we take to the seas with the divine Rachel Prince. I would have loved to have a friend like Rachel. We could have gone on adventures, read The Famous Five together and what fun we’d have had. It is a delight to listen to such beautiful English, there’s no dropped ‘aitchs’ in this book, (neither are there any ‘haitchs’ – it’s aitch, AITCH for goodness sake!). Sorry, where was I? Oh yes, Ms Brookes writing reminds me how beautiful English can be when employed so gracefully. The story moves along at a fair pace and the characters are so well drawn you can’t help but feel invested in the outcome. The mystery is solved and fair play is done, and quite right too. All I need to know is should I buy a hat for the wedding of Rachel and Carlos’ – because it’s about time they got married. Will Sarah be a bridesmaid? Can I be a bridesmaid? Listening to Killer Cruise is like getting a lovely cuddle from your favourite person; I didn’t want it to end. Simply beautiful
” A fun listen”
I love these stories. Rachel Prince is off on a cruise with her friend Lady Marjorie, who she’d met & befriended on a previous cruise. Now if you’ve read or heard these stories you’ll know they’re never a peaceful cruise tale. But where would we be if they were?! They’re a fun listen, even with the mayhem & thrills. Narrator is great at keeping the mood & characters running along with the story. A fun listen & im sure a good read too
