Publisher's Summary

The only thing worse than a ship overrun with Elvis impersonators is having to find the missing one. When Elise Pepper decides to take a long overdue vacation, she discovers that her Caribbean cruise isn't going to be quite the relaxing trip she'd hoped for. Instead of enjoying a quiet getaway, she finds herself in the middle of a theme party. Who knew there were so many Elvises and Marilyn Monroes in the world? But when an Elvis goes missing and it turns out he was a wealthy philanthropist, Elise is dragged into the mystery as the last person to see him. As she tries to convince everybody of what she saw, her frustration turns to fear when she realizes that she's trapped on board with a killer who will stop at nothing to silence her.

Don't listen if you'v ever been on a real cruise

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?


What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The author made so many errors about cruising, it was painful to listen to the story. Every cruise ship has basic similarities, about which Cee Cee James was unaware. She called the crew "staff", there are no coffeemakers or microwaves in cabins; crew is never allowed to socialize in passenger lounges, crew would not allow passengers in "crew only areas" are but a few mistakes she makes. Every cabin has a safe, so if you wanted to hide a key, you would lock it in your safe., not in your underwear drawer. Passengers agreeing to give up their room, with no replacement room? Really? I've never been on a cruise with entertainment in the dining room; it's always in another venue. You don't have to call for a taxi at the port in Miami, they are lined up, waiting for you. I was really excited to get this book, as we are avid cruisers, and really enjoyed her first book. However; I was sorely disappointed. A few mistakes, I could understand, but there are many more I did not list. If you are going to write about a cruise, please do your homework. Narrator is good.

Would you recommend Bed, Breakfast, and Bones to your friends? Why or why not?
No, not this one.

Any additional comments?
I don't like to give negative reviews like this, but I was so taken aback by the lack of cruising knowledge.

A bit confusing

Elise is on her first cruise. Strange things just keep happening and the story she is getting from the ship employees doesn't match what she is experiencing.
The whole mystery was a bit confusing to follow and all of Elise's anxieties didn't help matters.
Interesting story. The narration was all right.
