Publisher's Summary

When an English tycoon dies mysteriously, he leaves a note naming six people who might have wanted him dead. Daisy Kean and PI Harry Montana team up to take the suspects - and also six red herrings - on a Mediterranean cruise, culminating at his beautiful villa on Capri, where his will is to be read and the killer unmasked.

With the beautiful seaside settings plus the beginnings of a romance between loner Montana and wary Daisy, passions flare and the mystery deepens. And in the end, the unexpected twists are just the beginning.

A MODERN DAY AGATHA CHRISTI

If you start listening to this in the evening, you may not get any sleep.The pacing is perfect and you'll find it difficult to guess who is the guilty one. Along the way a dozen or more characters are well portrayed and believeable. The narrator is surprizingly versatile in voice, tone and style.

Not a mystery but a bad romance novel

Sailing to Capri is probably the worst books I've listened to on Audible. Elizabeth Adler is supposed to be a bestselling author so I kept with it, hoping it would get better. It did not.The main characters manage to be unbelievable and unlikable at the same time.The dialogue of the adult women sounds more like pre-teens talking. It is painful to listen to. No adult woman I've ever met (on three continents and 44 countries) has ever sounded as shallow or cartoonish as these characters. The research was poor. For example:this book takes place in 2006 and one of the main characters is 40 years old from outside Dallas. The author has him riding his horse to school as a teen 20 miles each way? This is so absurd. Dallas is a thriving city with sprawling suburbs, it would have been the 1980's, not the 1880's.
I love so many of the audible readers that it pains me to write a bad review of one of them. Granted Carrington MacDuffie had horrible dialogue to try and bring to life but her accents were caricatures. The Texan sounded more southeast, than southwest at best. At worst it was the most exaggerated "hillbilly" voice you've ever heard. When she would switch to the main character "Daisy" after reading his voice, she sometimes would give Daisy a bit of a hillbilly twang. OMG, these cartoon accents combined with the dialogue made the characters IQ sound 20 points lower than they already were written. Many words (particularly labels/brands like Hermes) were mispronounced the way people only know words from reading them but not hearing or using them.

Written for a teenager

I double checked to see if this was in the young listeners section. Its audience should be the Harlequin romance fans.

Great story. Easy listen.

This was such a good and clean story. It kept my attention the entire way. It had a bit of everything. Heartbreak, friendship, mystery, romance and true love. I highly recommend it.

fun story

A little bit of fluff that will keep you reading with a happy ending. Undeveloped characters with an intrigue of murder and romance in beautiful settings.

Slow beginning

A slow detailed beginning that comes to a quick end. Good story overall, a nice easy listen to pass the time until my next credit is available.
