Book 2 in the Amy's Travel Mysteries 
by Hy Conrad

Fanny and Amy Abel, the dynamic mother-and-daughter owners of a NYC travel agency, have just booked their biggest trip yet. But with danger in the air, the itinerary may include murder... 

Paisley MacGregor, a maid to the rich, made a dying request to send all of her wealthy employers on a first-class wake to spread her ashes around the world. Amy has her suspicions about these "mourners," especially when one has a life-threatening "accident" at the first stop in Paris. And when a mysterious American stranger tagging along with the group has his ticket punched in the shadow of the Taj Mahal, Amy knows she may have a killer on her tour. 

Who was this stranger, and what's the connection to someone in her group? Digging for clues while continuing on with the trip is a lot for Amy to manage, especially when another mourner has a possibly fatal encounter with a Hawaiian volcano. Back in the States, Fanny and Amy start to piece together a secret worth killing for, but someone is hot on their trail, and ready to send them on a one-way trip--to the morgue!


You’re going to love the trip you take when reading DEARLY DEPARTED!

While this is the second book in the Amy’s Travels Mysteries, this is the first for me. Author Hy Conrad mentions enough from book one, TOURED TO DEATH, to keep the reader from feeling lost.

As witty as it is mystery filled, DEARLY DEPARTED was a fun read that I truly enjoyed. Well written, and very intriguing, this story really kept me guessing. A clever whodunit, I tried to figure out who did do it all the way to the surprising reveal.

I enjoyed series lead, Amy and her mother, Fanny. It was fun to get to see some of the world with them and the other wide variety of characters that traveled with us. Each character brought so much to the story…even characters no longer there.

If you love a good mystery, and you enjoy traveling, DEARLY DEPARTED is the perfect book for you!
