Overview

Book 7 in the critically acclaimed, bestselling Passport to Peril Mystery series!

As a travel escort for seniors, Emily Andrew-Miceli has led her feisty Iowa clan all over the world. This time, they’re off to see historic windmills, classic Rembrandts, and picturesque canals in Holland—if they can ever unplug from their smartphones, that is. Joining them is the high school class from Bangor, Maine, whose 50th reunion celebration goes south faster than a fallen Brussel sprout soufflé as old rivalries start heating up. Worse, Emily’s hopes for a 100% survival rate on this trip are dashed when an important member of the tour suffers a tragic (and highly suspicious) accident. Then the saucy seniors’ wild night of drug-laced desserts and risqué shows in Amsterdam’s infamous Red Light District gets even more mysterious when one unpopular reunioner goes missing . . .

Praise:
“A first-class ticket to entertainment . . . [Dutch Me Deadly] offers non-stop humor and an engaging plot.” —Carrie Bebris, award-winning author of the Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mystery series

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Agatha Award–finalist Hunter’s mildly amusing seventh Passport to Peril mystery (after 2007’s Norway to Hide) takes tour guide Emily Andrew-Miceli and a group of feisty, smartphone-savvy senior Iowans, including her streetwise grandmother, to Holland. Joining the troubled tour are members of a squabbling, antisocial high school class from Bangor, Maine, celebrating their 50th reunion. When the snippy Kansan tour director, Charlotte, stumbles off an Amsterdam sidewalk into the path of a bicyclist with fatal results, Emily suspects Charlotte’s death was no accident, especially since so many Mainers were nearby who could have given her a push. As the body count rises, a flustered Emily does some covert sleuthing, aided by her transsexual ex-husband, who suddenly appears out of nowhere. This generic cozy offers the usual stock characters and situations. Agent: Irene Goodman. (Feb.)
Kirkus Reviews
A tour guide leaves a trail of violent death in her wake as she escorts seniors on journeys abroad. You'd think Emily Andrew-Miceli's group of Iowa golden-agers, including her grandma, would be put off by the fact that all the trips she escorts (Norway to Hide, 2007, etc.) lead to murder. But they actually seem to relish the chance to play amateur sleuths. This time out they're visiting Holland, sharing a bus and tour guide with a group from Maine who are celebrating a class reunion. The tour guide is a martinet whose death by bicycle isn't entirely unwelcome. The fatality seems like an accident, but Emily is suspicious. The group from Maine are bickering and seem to be hiding a secret from their shared past. Not to be outdone, Emily's crew face disaster when they accidentally imbibe drug-laced desserts and spend a wild night in Amsterdam's red-light district. The arrival of Emily's ex-husband, a flamboyant transsexual currently teaching life skills to an aspiring writer, adds to her anguish. As more deaths follow, Emily and her texting-obsessed geriatric helpers realize that they'll have to take prompt and decisive action before their whole trip is ruined. A bit of humor, a bit of travel information and a bit of mystery add up to some pleasant light reading.

    Delightfully Charming Read

    It’s been five years since we last seen Emily and the seniors and boy am I glad they are back. This time the seniors have embraced technology and use it to help Emily once again solve a murder mystery abroad. I laughed at the antics of the seniors as they traipsed through Holland with their usual enthusiasm. One again Jackie is on-board and the fun never ends with the traveling Iowans. The best part of this series is the author’s description of the places they visit along the way that makes me feel like I’m part of this vacationing group. Another great mystery solved and the excitement of their next adventure is what I look forward to in this delightfully charming series.
