{Kregel Blog Tour} Saints & Sailors (The Tunbridge Chronicles) by Pam Rhodes

Book Description:  Fourth in the Dunbridge Chronicles series, Neil Fisher's old and new congregations come together on a cruise round the British Isles
Three groups of people come together for a more-or-less godly cruise around the British Isles to visit Lindisfarne, the Loch Ness Monster Museum, the isles of Iona and Mull, Dublin, and the Scilly Isles. There are familiar faces from               St Stephens, Dunbridge; some new folk from Neil’s new parish in Derbyshire; and the slightly long-suffering crew, not least its skipper.
A cruise is a great place to make new friends, with leisure for decent conversations. It can also be an awkward, confined space with those you would really rather avoid. Some of the party face tough decisions--not least of which is whether to say "yes"--and some tensions just cannot be left on land.
My Thoughts:  This is the fourth book in the Dunbridge Chronicles by Pam Rhodes.  I've been able to read three of the four books and find the  stories are all shaped around an angelical priest, Neil Fisher.
This story involves Neil Fisher and some of his congregants as they take a cruise together.  An interesting cruise.
This is also a read that includes mainly British people traveling in a ship to have a holiday of sorts. 
I had a bit of a problem with some of the transitions in the story. . . I just didn't get it.  The story was slightly slow for me.  
This particular story wasn't my cup of tea but if you enjoy British life and travels that include a lot of conversations then you will enjoy this read.
