This cozy mystery is really exciting: a great mystery to solve while we visit some of the most beautiful countries in the world.

Paisley MacGregor has been for many years a maid, then for a lucky inheritance has become rich but her heart has always remained humble. On her deathbed she has expressed to Peter, one of her old employers, her last wish: her former employers will scatter her ashes in various parts of the world, only in the last stage will read her  will.

The only one who can arrange this incredible journey is Amy. She has a very special travel agency: she organizes trips where you can become detective and solve a fake murder. Unfortunately, in the first trip it happened a real crime and the court has suspended this service. This would be a wonderful opportunity to gain and publicity but Amy is skeptical, has a strange feeling, perhaps Mrs. MacGregor didn’t die naturally. When it happens something strange in their first stop in Paris Amy understands to be right.

The plot is well-constructed, original and intriguing, the characters are interesting and well developed. Deceptions, lies, suspicion, so much humor and great landscapes: I really enjoyed this mystery.

Although it is the second book in the series you can be read as a stand alone. I can not wait to read the first book, intrigues me too much.
If you love cozy mysteries this is a must read.
