    Travel and Murder

    Mallory Marlowe finds out Carly Cassidy Berman, her old high school classmate, has opened a superexclusive Tavaci Springs spa in Aspen. So when Mallory's editor calls to discuss her next assignment, she gets him to send her to Aspen to do an article on whether nonskiers can have fun in Aspen.

    She goes to dinner at Carly's house and goes along to watch one of her presentations about the new Rejuva-juice that is supposed to help keep you looking younger. The next day Carly's corpse is discovered in the mud bath at her spa. The spa's accountant, Harriet, who discovered the body is soon one of the top suspects. She asks Mallory to help prove her innocence. Can Mallory uncover the identity of the real killer without putting herself in danger? Or did Harriet really kill Carly? There's a plethora of suspects, but there's plenty of danger too.

    I love this series. Mallory is near my age and has two college-aged children. But thankfully I don't find dead bodies everywhere I go! Yet, I love Mallory. She is such a sensible woman, but yet she is a risk taker. But even in her risks, she makes good choices.

    I love that each book is set in a different locale. I like that there is some romance for Mallory along the way as well. And she always knows her responsibility to her family and career.

    I can't wait for the next installment in Mallory's life. I highly recommend this book and series.

    fans will enjoy the latest ┬┐Murder Packs A Suitcase┬┐ mystery

    Fortyish Widow Mallory Marlowe has not felt the empty nest syndrome with her two children away at college because of her work as a travel reporter for Good Life magazine. When she reads in the paper about the success of an acquaintance from her student days at JFK HS, she suggests to her boss Trevor Price, an article on what to do in Aspen if you do not ski. She will also try to obtain an interview with her former classmate Carly Cassidy Berman, creator of ReJuva Juice and owner of the high class Tavaci Springs Spa.<BR/><BR/>In Aspen she calls Carly who invites Mallory to dinner with her, her spouse Brett and has been Hollywood director Gordon Swig. The next day Mallory attends a pitch given by Carly. Soon afterward, spa accountant Harriet Vosci finds her employer dead. Brett has an alibi provided to him by statuesque city PR beauty Astrid Norland who insists he spent the night with her. The police find evidence that makes Harriet the prime suspect. A desperate Harriet asks Mallory to prove her innocence, but the reluctant amateur sleuth keeps finding proof the accountant killed Carly.<BR/><BR/>Putting aside the obvious of Harriet asking an amateur instead of hiring a professional with a murder rap hanging over her or a lawyer to deal with her issues with Carly, fans will enjoy the latest ¿Murder Packs A Suitcase¿ mystery (see REIGNING CATS AND DOGS). The support cast is solid and Aspen comes across as being more than just a wealthy ski resort; in fact much of the first half of the tale focuses as an engaging travelogue. Amateur sleuth fans will enjoy Mallory¿s investigation into the city and the murder of her high school acquaintance with a hint of romance in the mountainous air.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
