“So many twists and turns that it keeps you guessing until the very end.” (Patty Allen Review of “Dearly Departed”)

January 29, 2016

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)
