I'd read this a couple years ago and enjoyed it, so was happy to find another copy.

Here are my previous comments:
Enjoyed this, especially the Egypt setting. I love reading books set in the more "exotic" locales, as it's an educational as well as entertaining experience. This one was light and a quick read. The sleuths, cousins Jocelyn and Kyla, were fun, if sometimes a little annoying (as were many other members of the tour group, but that's what tour groups are like - it's the luck of the draw who your traveling companions will be). I could have done with a little less profanity, but overall, a good read.

Amazon:
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 that's only the first leg of the trip…

From the jovial doctor haggling for trinkets he doesn't want to the mysterious imposter wearing someone else's 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.

My Review: This was such a fun cozy mystery! The main character was fun, down to earth and interesting. It's very refreshing, some of the cozy mystery characters are whiny or have no common sense. That annoys me so much. The author wrote a lot about Egypt since that was the vacation Jocelyn was on. This book was fun and informative.

This book was delivered to my door today while I was working from home -- a nice distraction. I will be adding this to the growing pile that is Mt. TBR and hope to read it some day.

Cheryl's review Feb 16, 2017 · edit
liked it

I was home sick from work and this was the closest book. It wasn't a bad mystery and the characters were decent. The discussion of Egypt was really enjoyable, especially since I like to read Elizabeth Peters' Peabody series. It was obvious to me who the responsible party was and I had a hard time understanding why Jocelyn didn't catch on sooner. But then, I didn't have to deal with all of those people either (too bad nobody did Jerry in). My friends have traveled on tours in Europe but I haven't. I might consider one for a place like Egypt, but I think it would get on my nerves, even if there weren't any murders. I did get a chuckle out of the references to sisters from Utah, especially since I finished reading it on my flight to Utah (where I will be seeing my sisters). Since the series focuses on Jocelyn and her cousin Kyla and their relationship drove me nuts, I probably won't go out of my way to hunt down any more, but if one came my way I would read it.
