Publisher Comments:

Meet Jocelyn Shore, the “snazzy if snarky amateur sleuth” (Publishers Weekly) who stars—and shines—in Janice Hamricks hilarious and un-put-downable debut mystery series.

A classy whodunit…offers a trove of Egyptology and a wealth of humor.”

—Richmond Times-Dispatch

Texas high school teacher Jocelyn Shore and her cousin Kyla are on a “dream” tour of Egypt when things take a nightmarish turn: One of their fellow travelers, Millie Owens, takes a fatal fall off one of the Pyramids. And thats only the first leg of the trip…

Charming.”—Seattle Times

From the jovial doctor haggling for trinkets he doesnt want to the mysterious imposter wearing someone elses clothing to the attractive stranger traveling alone, this group of tourists is carrying more than one kind of baggage. Add a mistaken identity, a priceless necklace, and another unexpected death, and Jocelyn finds herself reluctantly trying to unravel an intrigue that threatens to end not only her vacation, but her life.

“The perfect cozy for taking on vacation.” —Gumshoe Review

Kaye, November 22, 2012 (view all comments by Kaye)
Jocelyn Shore and her cousin Kyla are on the trip of a lifetime to Egypt. Their fellow travelers are a definite mix of personalities and ages. On the first leg of the trip, one of their group, Millie Owens, takes a fatal fall off a Pyramid. Jocelyn is convinced it wasn't just a simple fall and she starts suspecting other members of their group. I loved this book, there were the quirky characters, the Dr. who loved to haggle for trinkets, the geriatric honeymooners, and of course the attractive single man who seemed to be more than he said he was. I liked the relationship between Jocelyn and Kyla, cousins, not sisters. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
