Dawn Brookes is a British published author of fiction and nonfiction novels.

She has a decades long pedigree in nursing and says that she regularly goes on cruise holidays to pursue research purposes. She considers it her passion and brings this to her writing. She also has a Christian background and enjoys writing clean crime. She has also written for younger readers as well.

Brookes spent her formative years growing up in Leicester. She would move a bit, living in London, Berkshire, and Derbyshire. She has a bachelors degree (with honors) as well as a Masters degree in the field of education.

Dawn is known for writing the Rachel Prince mystery series by most of her readers. The series started in 2010 and brings her own love of cruises together in combination with murder mystery plots and sometimes even a hint of romance. The Prince surname was inspired by a dog that she had when she was a child. Prince was a great dog and would gently rest his head on the author’s knee while she was reading books.

She has also penned works in the nonfiction genre from her experiences in life. Brookes is the author of the memoir novel Hurry Up Nurse. The book is all about her experiences going through training to become a nurse in the 1970’s era. She would follow that up with a sequel, Hurry Up Nurse 2: London Calling.

Brookes worked for many years in the medical field over a career that lasted 39 years. She was a midwife, district nurse, hospital nurse, and a community matron before she became a published author. However, even before she started writing novels, Dawn had written articles that were published in a variety of professional journals and also served as a co-editor for a nurse textbook.

The author loves nature and has a special place in her heart for all animals, particularly dogs. She likes featuring animals in her books that she writes for children, believing that a connection to caring for animals and experiencing nature all helps children to grow as human beings and become kinder.

Dawn Brookes is the creator and the author of the compelling Rachel Prince Mystery series of fictional novels. This series started out in 2018 with the publication of the debut novel in the series, A Cruise to Murder. This was followed the same year by the sequel, Deadly Cruise. Killer Cruise, the third novel in the series, would be published in 2019. This was followed the same year by the fourth and fifth novels, Dying to Cruise and A Christmas Cruise Murder. The sixth novel came out in 2020 and is titled Murderous Cruise Habit. It was followed by the seventh novel, Honeymoon Cruise Murder.

A Cruise to Murder is the first novel in the Rachel Prince mystery series by Dawn Brookes. Who would have thought that when a hitman and an older woman are in danger, the only thing between them is a young woman with a broken heart?

In this debut story of the series, readers get the chance to meet the main character of Rachel Prince for the first time. She’s a young woman that is twenty five years of age. From the outset, she is the type of woman that seems to have it all.

Rachel is smart, good looking, and has even made her way into a new field, recently qualifying to work as a police officer, and in a new relationship. It seems that things are going really well, almost too good to be true. It turns out that it is too good to be true. She was in love with her fiancé, but he has broken up with her to pursue the affections of another woman.

She has no idea what to do and knows that she needs to relax from this whole ordeal. Her best friend works as a nurse on a cruise ship, and Sarah’s come up with a great answer to Rachel’s need for relaxation and rest. Sarah thinks that the best solution is to go on a Mediterranean cruise with the Coral Queen.

Rachel decides that it is a good idea and books herself a ticket to go on the cruise. Once there, she makes friends with an older woman. Lady Marjorie is nice enough but also seems to have an air of concern that something is going to go wrong. At the same time, Rachel meets a man named Carlos.

Carlos is attractive and charming on top of that, but doesn’t give much about himself away. Then an accident takes the life of a passenger and it seems that this cruise may not be easy sailing after all. There’s apparently a lot of danger around, but was the accident an accident? Or was it intentional?

Rachel needs to find out before she becomes the next person to fall unluckily victim to an accident. Can she figure out what’s going on before it’s too late? Read this book to find out!

Deadly Cruise is the second novel in the Rachel Prince mystery series authored by Dawn Brookes. If you loved the first cruise ship mystery story, be sure to check this one out!

After providing evidence in a trial, Rachel Prince decides that it’s the perfect time to get back to going on a cruise. She wants nothing more than to kick back and relax, recharging from the work experience and getting threatened by a man she assisted in putting away.

Rachel’s going to think about her future and consider whether this line of work is for her. She takes an offer of a free cruise on the Coral Queen on the way to New York. Sarah, her best friend, will also be working on the ship for the next nine months as a nurse.

Once there, Rachel gets invited to join a group with a tour leader for some activities during the cruise. But when a member of the crew is discovered dead in the cabin, does it mean there’s trouble aboard the ship? Rachel’s keeping a watch on the ship and wants to figure this case out. But will they reach New York with answers or no new information? Read this murder mystery to find out!
