Publisher's Summary

Theater professors and couple, Nicky Abbondanza and Noah Oliver, are going overboard as usual, but this time on an Alaskan cruise, where dead college theater professors are popping up everywhere, from the swimming pool to the captain's table. Further complicating matters are Nicky's and Noah's parents as surprise cruise passengers, and Nicky's assignment to direct a murder mystery dinner theater show onboard ship. Nicky and Noah will need to use their drama skills to figure out who is bringing the curtain down on vacationers, before it is lights out for the handsome couple. You will be applauding and shouting bravo for Joe Cosentino's fast-paced, ribald, edge-of-your-seat, entertaining, third novel in this delightful series. Curtain up and ship ahoy!

Loads of laughs, a great cozy on water

I enjoyed this book so much that I had to jump at the chance to listen to it.
Nicky and Noah are college professors and always getting into trouble solving a mystery ( think Nancy Drew or Hardy boys toss in lots of humor some sweet man-love and you have a great story to make you laugh and brighten your day.)

There are lots of quirky characters, twists and turns I never figure out the murderer.
I am on the fence about the narration in this one though. I didn't really like Noah's voice he sounded like a young kid or too girly and one of the women sounded too butch. I think if the two voices had been switched the narration would have been perfect. (yes I know Noah is gay and flamboyant but the voice just didn't work for me.)

Zany mystery with a heart

Another fun book in the series! We follow the third adventure of now-fiances Nicky and Noah as they direct a murder mystery show on a cruise ship, and life imitates art as actors start dropping like flies. Joe Cosentino has not only crafted a fascinating murder mystery with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end, but also a laugh riot and a side of romance. Cosentino has a unique style that is different than anything else I have read. The book is full of hysterical one-liners, quirky characters, and off-beat situations, really pushing the envelope, yet never becoming cartoon-ish. The funniest parts are with Nicky and Noah's parents, who have surprised them by booking passage on the cruise. This is a great third book in the series. Brad Enright does a great job at bringing the characters to life and moving the story along.

Laugh out loud mystery!

If you could sum up Drama Cruise in three words, what would they be?

hysterical, intriguing, passionate

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Nicky, the MC. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is so passionate about everything he does -- from his directing, to his love for his husband, to his dedication to solving the murders.

Have you listened to any of Brad Enright’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This is the first book I have heard. He did a great job in delineating the different characters and moving the story along.

Any additional comments?

Joe Cosentino has me rolling on the floor with his zany, witty, and unexpected humor, yet he writes fascinating characters and an intriguing mystery plot that keeps you guessing until the end.

Stupid and somewhat offensive

This mystery is simpler and uses more stereotypes than its predecessors. This series is like A dumbe Scooby Doo episode.
