I received a free copy of Peril in Paradise written by Deb Graham, and narrated by Ginger Walton in exchange for an unbiased review. This review copy Audio Book was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audio Book Boom.
Where to begin? As the other reviewers stated this was not a mystery by any means of the definition. Now, I have always wanted to see Hawaii. A story about a Hawaiian cruise just sounded fun to me even without a true mystery involved, but the story just dragged on. I did enjoy parts about Hawaii, but I didn't care for the characters. They weren't believable to me. They said they traveled a lot, so I would have expected them to handle some of their situations differently. They acted like new travelers who didn't know how to handle certain situation when red flags were going off all over.
The narrator I felt did a great job, and tried to put some excitement into the story, but there was just none to put in.

I did enjoy listening to Peril in Paradise. There were a few times when I felt the characters weren't reacting to the situations the way I would have expected, however not everyone does react the same way. That being said, I am still looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens with the characters.
I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A delightful holiday by proxy, sitting on couches in the sunshine, dining at the captain's table and food, food and more food. I have never wanted to go on a cruise - still don't - but it was fun travelling with real estate brokers Will and Jerria Danson as they tried to sail away from her empty nest blues. Of course, it wasn't quite the plain sailing they had hoped for.
The book is well written, atmospheric and the characterisations delightful, if occasionally annoying. Real people, with flaws like everyone else: that's part of their charm. And there are tears and laughter
Ginger Walton's sultry, warm, 'purring' voice is a pleasure to hear. She poured sunshine over the text, with good intonation throughout. Her voicings of the individual characters was not pronounced and could be a bit odd, but overall her reading was an added delight.
I am an infrequent reader of cozy mysteries. I was gifted my copy of Peril in Paradise by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. It was a gentle, light-hearted read which I very much enjoyed. At the end of the recording is a 'taster' of the next book in the series, Murder on Deck. I just might be tempted to take a second cruise with Will and Jerria.
