Dearly Departed by Hy Conrad is the second book in the Amy’s Travel mystery series, and my first book by this author. I loved this book! I plan on reading her first book Toured to Death, than will anxiously wait for the next adventure.
I found this book to be very clever and unique. The former maid of several people dies and pays for a luxury trip for her old employers to spread her ashes. The main characters are very likable, Amy and her always entertaining and outspoken mother Fanny. I enjoyed the trip to all the countries, and reading about the wonderful sites, while sitting on my couch. I also enjoyed getting to know all the employers/suspects on the trip.
Dearly Departed is a very well written book, with so many twists and turns that keeps you guessing until the very end. This book is also fun, which is another reason to keep reading. I strongly recommended this book for cozy mystery readers who enjoy an unique plot (less)
