"Sometimes a reader needs to curl up with a deliciously good book and disappear from their own world for awhile. Murder Caribbean-Style spirited me away into a world that oozed with the charms of such exotic locations as Barbados, St. Thomas, Sint Maarten and Puerto Rico. Diane Rapp offers a gift to her readers: She whets an adventurer's appetite with zesty, vivid descriptions of fascinating out-of-the-way places at each port, sites that are unknown to many tourists. We are treated to descriptions of not only the duties of personnel on a cruise ship but, more so, their very human nuances." Review by Doreen Cox.

Book Description:
When Kayla Sanders accepts a free Caribbean cruise aboard the Aurora, she gets sucked into a modern-day mutiny culminating in the murder of her ex-lover, Patrick MacIntyre. When Kayla was denied a well-deserved promotion, she resigned. Kayla's shipboard friends applauded her bravery, but she knew the truth. Reeling from the painful humiliation inflicted by an unfaithful lover, Kayla welcomed an excuse to run home and hide. Living like a hermit in Colorado she worked days as a typist and wrote a Caribbean guidebook at night.

Four years later, Kayla arrives on board her old ship and savors the VIP treatment afforded a published author-until Patrick falls dead at her feet. Plunging into a frenzied investigation to discover the killer before police arrest her friends, Kayla bumps into Steven Young every time she uncovers a clue. They soon join forces to unravel the mystery and spark a fledgling romance. Like a tightrope walker balancing between passion and peril, Kayla risks her life to unearth the truth behind Patrick's death and free herself from his memory. Should she trust Steven and risk another broken heart-or worse?

Read4 Fun
This was a great introduction to Kayla Sanders. She seeks adventure as well as a good time. The characters are well developed, with lots of gorgeous descriptions of the Carribean Island. I've never been there, but I feel like I've had a glimpse. The author shows her expertise in showing us many of the "behind the scene" activities on a cruise.
Wendy Cartmell, Author
Murder Caribbean Style is a travel guide, romantic novel and murder mystery all rolled into one. Kayla Sanders has written a travel guide of the Caribbean Islands and we follow her to numerous locations as she updates her book. She has been unlucky in love being jilted by a former lover Patrick who falls dead at her feet, prompting a murder investigation. But as well as deaths, Kayla also finds romance. This is a richly textured novel with numerous characters and suspects and is an entertaining

I enjoyed this mystery which is set on cruise ships and numerous Caribbean islands. Having been to many of these places, I was impressed by the detail that Diane Rapp puts into her descriptions. The author has clearly been on cruises and toured these islands. The characters are interesting and the story carried me along. Settings are described with wonderful detail. I would gladly read another of this author's books.

Meet the Author

Diane Rapp became an entrepreneur when she started her own dog grooming salon in Santa Barbara, California. She spent the next thirty years as a small business owner; she sold real estate, started an office supply/copy center, and performed free-lance advertising design. During all those years Diane wrote stories as a cure for insomnia. She wrote short stories about dogs for a local German Shepherd Dog Club newsletter, and then expanded to full length novels. After Diane and her daughter Laura co-authored a travel guidebook entitled Cruising the Eastern Caribbean (four editions were published by Hunter Publishing) Laura gave Diane the idea of writing a mystery set on cruise ships in the Caribbean. Murder Caribbean-Style is the first novel of a series featuring Kayla, Steven and their friends. Muder on a Ghost Ship is the second novel in the series. The characters encounter smugglers, kidnappers, and murderers while they try to solve the murder of a ghost haunting the ship.

This is a very well written "who done it" novel. I enjoyed the cruise aspect of it since I have cruised most of the places mentioned and it brought back memories. There is mystery, romance and great characters. This is a great beach read. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.
