Book Review: The Cruise by Catherine Cooper

During a New Year’s Eve party on a large, luxurious cruise ship in the Caribbean, the ship’s dancer, Lola, goes missing.

Everyone on board has something to hide

Two weeks later, the ship is out of service, laid up far from land with no more than a skeleton crew on board. And then more people start disappearing…

No one is safe Why are the crew being harmed? Who is responsible? And who will be next?


I really enjoyed The Chateau by Catherine Cooper and The Cruise was equally as great. I had absolutely no idea where it was going to go. It is told through two different storylines, both past and present, that seem completely different but come together to make a hell of a book. Eventually you do start to get an idea of what is going on but there are enough twists and reveals to keep you going.

Alternating chapters between four of the characters keeps the book moving forward and also gives the reader a few different personalities. Lola was by far the best character. Not only was she pretty interesting, she had the best character development. I’m on the fence about how realistic some of it was, but I guess this is a work of fiction, after all.

Sounds up your street? You can pick up The Cruise here.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
