"Fast-paced, entertaining, and a mystery-lover's treat." --John Clement, co-author of the Dixie Hemingway series

Book a ticket with Amy and Fanny Abel, a spunky mother-and-daughter duo of travel agents who find their mystery tour becoming all too real. . .

While Fanny takes care of the business end of Amy's Travel in New York City, Amy is traipsing around Monte Carlo, managing their first mystery-themed excursion, a road rally in which guests compete to solve a fictional murder along the way.

The trip starts off without a hitch. Clues quickly mount, the competition is lively, and just when the suspense is peaking, the writer they hired to script their made-up mystery is found murdered in his New York apartment. Suddenly, on top of running a new venture together, mother and daughter must solve a real-life case of foul play, while trying not to drive each other bonkers. But Amy and Fanny are ready, willing, and Abel to track down a clever killer with some serious emotional baggage, one who will go to any lengths to keep dark secrets from seeing the light of day. . .

It seemed to me that the author tried to stuff too large a cast, too many travel destinations, and too complex a plot into too few pages. The main character is poorly presented. During moments of crisis she again and again freezes, and is intimidated. Yet other characters repeatedly praise her, and the author keep finding ways to tell us that she's a successful tour organizer/leader, beloved by all. Most of the other characters are only two-dimensional. Don't tell us about the character, show us via dialog and actions.

Just okay - the basic idea of the travel mystery is great, but the solution strained credulity (and no real clues were dropped for the reader); I also disliked all the characters (including the main, recurring ones) so it was difficult to remain interested.
