The Cruise - Caroline James || Blog Tour


Three friends set sail on a luxury cruise… will they be able to catch a husband on the open seas?

Leaving behind the heartache, guilt and disappointment of their real lives, three friends decide that now they’re in their sixties, it’s time they finally did something for themselves!
Swapping Christmas turkeys and BBC reruns for crystal waters, white sandy beaches and smooth golden rum, Anne, Jane and Kath throw caution (and tradition) to the wind as they set sail on a luxury two-week Christmas cruise around the Caribbean.

Will the three friends find the comfort and joy they seek aboard the Diamond Star?

This was a wonderful funny & heartfelt read. It was light in parts, it packed a punch with emotion when needed but also had me laughing out loud.  Anne, Jane & Kath decide to throw caution to the wind, leaving their current lives behind and decide to spend the festive season onboard The Diamond Star experiencing all it has to offer.

The three friends, all very different all seek something different too and what follows is a great reading experience. I loved spending time with each of the three as they rediscovered themselves and what life still has to offer even in their sixties.Their are all written so well, each is flawed and has had their challenges but their friendship is what i enjoyed the most. The laughter, the support and honesty. They rooted for each other, but warned each other too and if i get to sixty with a group of friends like these three i would be happy.

The settings are wonderfully well written and i could imagine every island stop off along the way, the scents sounds and tastes which is something i love about a book. If i can imagine im there then the author has done a fantastic job. I really needed a read like this.
