    7. This is the second book in the series, but the first that I have read There are a few mentions of incidents from the first book, but not enough to prevent this one from being enjoyable This is one of the most humor filled cozies I have read in a long time However, that is not to say that the humor overpowers the mystery It merely adds to the fun of reading the book Amy is a great main character, and someone I would love to travel with in real life except for that pesky murder thing that happens [...]

    11. Another fun read in the series I initially started reading them because of the travel theme but that is clearly secondary to the mystery aspect which is a shame In fact, the logistics of travel seem almost effortless to these high end travelers There are so many oddball things that can happen during a trip which is what I was hoping to read about Still, I like the characters so I will read of the series and see where it goes.

    12. Exactly what I wanted I enjoy lighthearted mysteries If you do to then this is for you The travel descriptions and multiple subplots keep this from being your typical somewhat boring cozy And it s perfect There is enough going on to keep you up at night but not so creepy or bloody to give you nightmares Again, perfect balance Thanks By Conrad
