Tour guide, Lana hosts a group on a Mother's Day tour of Amsterdam; however, there are a few surprise guests, including someone Lana hasn't seen for a long time. There are several clashes of personality within the group, which inevitably leads to murder. Ex-investigative journalist Lana can't resist trying to solve the crime herself.
The author describes quite a few famous tourist spots so well, that the reader is taken along on the journey with the tour group.
I am loving this well written series, and am looking forward to reading more.
Highly recommended for fans of cozy murder mysteries.

I have just been travelling in and around Amsterdam. I've explored the city, toured the canal village of Giethoorn, seen more tulips that I could ever imagine, taken an art lesson and toured a windmill used for making paint. That's where the trouble really started, but I was privileged to watch as Lana, tour guide and investigator extraordinaire, solved the murder, reunited with her estranged mother and completed another successful, albeit fraught European adventure. Oh and was there just a hint of a new romance?

A perfect light readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 June 2020
This entertaining mystery is the perfect light read to transport you from your armchair to foreign parts, in this case, the delightful city of Amsterdam. The city comes to life as tour guide and amateur sleuth, Lana Hansen, shepherds her group of American tourists around the sights. Some characters have featured before in the series and there are new ones, but the book worked for me as a stand-alone story. The author writes with a light touch, but issues of family love, loyalty, and forgiveness are explored along the way.
Great cozy!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 October 2020
I loved the setting for this book as I've never been to Amsterdam. I felt like I was there and it sounds fabulous, apart from the murder of course! An intriguing mystery with dysfunctional suspects - just what you need for the genre. Enjoyed it, would read another in the series.
EntertainingReviewed in the United States on 6 June 2020
Well, Ms. Alderson has done it once again! She’s delivered a thoroughly entertaining mystery while giving us a guided tour through the Netherlands. I especially liked that she showed us a deeper side of her main characters. Give this book a read, you won’t be sorry.

Fun read , somewhat unrealisticReviewed in the United States on 8 September 2020
I enjoy this series and the author has travel down pat. Somewhat unrealistic though in how the tour company handles the murders that take place in this series. Still, a fun read.
