About the Adventure

Close your eyes and imagine it’s the dead of winter, and you are on a fun cruise ship exploring the sunshine and warmth of the California coast. Now imagine that you are on that cruise with two of your favorite authors, as well as other book lovers eager to connect and share fun and meaningful experiences that you will never forget.

Throw in a few exciting ports of call in Catalina and Ensenada, a fun private welcome cocktail party, lively dinners every evening including a farewell group dinner, day at sea group activities with Liz and Lisa, including interactive book discussion, photo ops, and book signing, and…

open your eyes! You aren’t dreaming, because Adventures by the Book is going to sea, and you are invited. Come join bestselling authors LIZ FENTON and LISA STEINKE, for four nights at sea aboard the Royal Princess, departing out of Los Angeles, California. Enjoy their most recent book, The Two Lila Bennetts, a perfect summer read, while you relax on the water along the sunny California coast!

Liz and Lisa are the co-authors of 5 bestselling novels. Their latest, The Two Lila Bennetts (published by Lake Union Publishing), is a deliciously dark tale of regret and retribution, of new beginnings and the road not taken. It’s sharp, clever, and insidious; the novel shines all the way to the pitch-perfect ending.

The Two Lila Bennetts may be a story of when bad choices catch up to you, but don’t worry, choosing to join us on this cruise will be something you will never regret!
