Description:

Sidney Marsh's job as a New York travel agent is on the line. On her last two tours, she and her colleague Jay ended up smack in the middle of murder and mayhem. Their sleuthing sideline did not endear them to their employer, Itchy Feet Travel, so naturally they are relieved when their wealthy friend Brooke requests their presence on a no expense spared tour of India and Nepal. Another agency has made the arrangements, so all they need do is sit back and enjoy the ride.

Well, not quite all. Brooke has enlisted them to keep a sharp eye on their fellow travelers, all "friends" who have grown rich from the demise of others. After surviving an attempt on her life, Brooke is certain the culprit must be one of the five: a handsome Scotsman, a Bollywood actress, an investment banker, a Parisian filmmaker, or a twice widowed blonde. Many of the tour accommodations prove to be as dodgy as the reputations of the travelers themselves. After one of the members of the moving house party dies of an apparent heart attack, everyone's nerves are on edge. Sidney can hardly be blamed for assuming a deadly game is afoot... or for falling for Adam, the doting Scotsman. Now, if only she can unmask the killer before the killer beats her to the punch.

My Thoughts:

This is the 3rd book in the Sidney Marsh series, in this book Sidney finds her job on the line after two failed trips and now she has to show her worth with a successful trip, along with her is her best bud Jay which leads them to India and Nepal.  They are selected for this trip by their friend Brooke who has requested Sidney and Jay and their boss Mr. Silverstein doesn't want to loose Brooke's business so he accommodates them. This trip is not what it seems and they can't figure out why they are part of this trip but Brooke soon makes the reason why very clear.

Brooke has hired the duo to keep an eye on Brooke's friends to find out what is going on with her friends, she trusts both Jay and Sidney to find out who is trying to kill Brooke and why? Also why are they stealing from Brooke too? With five people to watch it shouldn't be too hard or dangerous, or will it?   The other reason she has summoned them as she doesn't want Sidney to loose her job and knows how much fun Jay and Sidney can be and are such an asset to Itchy Feet Travel agency Brooke thinks that Mr. Silverstein and Diana are crazy to put Sidney's job on the line for things out of her control.  As Sidney would say she can really control murder on two previous travels?  I know I couldn't!

Out of the five people on this trip each has benefited from the death of someone close to them while the police never determined if foul play was involved Brooke is determined to find out what happened and whose trying to kill her at the same time. I really enjoyed this book reading about the exotic locations and meeting the people Sidney and Jay tour around with is just fabulous!  Always mystery and intrigue that happens in a Sidney Marsh book!  Can't wait to see what Sidney and Jay are up to next and who bought Itchy Feet Travel Agency, will the new boss keep Sidney and Jay around or hang them out to dry!
