Description

“Fans of Diane Mott Davidson and Donna Andrews will enjoy this new series”Booklist

Nosy, warm-hearted travel agent Campbell Hale gets mixed up in a missing persons case when beloved Nashville socialite Bitsy Carter vanishes during her Mexican vacation.

Travel agent Campbell Hale isn’t surprised when she hears her good friend, socialite and talented artist Bitsy Carter, has booked a luxury Mexican spa vacation through her agency. Bitsy often takes solo trips abroad, and who’d want to spend February in grey Nashville when they could avoid it?

She is, however, extremely surprised – and extremely worried – when Bitsy doesn’t come back.

What could compel warm, friendly Bitsy to run away without telling anyone her plans? And most puzzling of all: what could make her leave her small children behind?

The answers lie in Zihuatanejo, and Campbell barely needs to twist new boyfriend Detective Sam Davis’ arm to get him to agree to accompany her there. Campbell’s determined to uncover the truth, but will this be a vacation to remember . . . or one to die for?

Featured Reviews

Travel agent Campbell Hale’s friend Bitsy goes missing and Campbell is determined to find her. The second in a series, this can also be read as a stand alone as I have done. Though, I seem to have found a new favorite author and need to go back and read the first book.
The characters are well developed, the dialogue snappy, and overall the writing is descriptive and eloquent. Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for a copy of this digital ARC. All opinions are my own. This review can also be found on my Goodreads page.

This is a fun mystery with a travel agent/detective with a fast car and always in trouble. Overall a good mystery with well developed characters.

“Sheesh. Campbell. We’ve got a police force in this town. They’re pretty good. It’s not your job. Tell your detective friend. Let him do the work. It’s what we pay him for.”

Campbell, travel agent, isn’t surprised when close friend Bitsy Carter disappears to Mexico for a spa vacay through her agency. But, when she’s declared missing a couple of weeks later, gaps start to form. What could make a devoted and loving mother leave her children behind?

This was a nice cozy mystery, and I loved the story, but personally it moved too slowly for me. At the start the story is very slow moving, and there’s a bit too much romance thrown in for my liking in a ‘mystery’, but then at the end it seems to all quickly end in the last couple of chapters, like it was rushed.

I also don’t understand why a travel agent takes a police case that comes across as dangerous into her own hands. To me, that doesn’t make sense. The characters and the storyline, other than the amateur detective travel agent, seemed well thought out.

The chapters were small bite sized chunks, so at any point there was a nice stopping point, helpful if like me you have a toddler who likes interrupting your reading, and I loved the fact that this can be read as a stand-alone, even though it’s supposed to be part of a series.

I recommend if you’re looking for something lightweight, but not a heavy thriller mystery type.

Thank you to Canongate Books, Severn House, Peggy O’Neal Peden and NetGalley for providing me with a copy!
