Tour Guide Cozy Mysteries… Mystery Books that Involve Travel:
What better time to travel than in the summer months? Well, that is true if you have children in school… My guess is that most empty-nesters or people who have opted from having children would rather travel during the times when school is in session… making places of interest a whole lot more accessible and less crowded. Either way, you can take along a cozy mystery which features travelling as a central theme:
Peter Abresch: James P. Dandy Elderhostel Mystery Series
Taffy Cannon: The first novel in the Roxanne Prescott Mystery Series features a tour guide for a very first-class tour business.
