Emily Andrew finds her latest job as a tour guide on a trip to Italy with a group of competive romance writers turning into a disaster, when their hotel burns to the ground, her luggage vanishes, and a contest sponsored by a publishing house turns deadly. Original.

Simon and Schuster


The discount travel package to Italy seemed like a great deal: Emily Andrew could lead her globe-trotting Iowans on the trip of a lifetime and bring her family to boot. Maybe she should have read the fine print....Sharing their itinerary with a group of hyper-competitive aspiring romance writers is just a prelude to more Machiavellian drama than an Italian opera.

First, their hotel burns to the ground. Then, when Emily's lost luggage turns up found, the disgruntled literary ladies raid her clothing supply like she's a one-woman Gucci outlet. But the real killer is a contest sponsored by a publishing house -- and the depths to which the dime-novel divas will plunge to win a book contract. Amid backstabbing and catcalling, bodies start turning up -- in Emily's favorite outfits! Now, Emily will need more than a phrasebook to say ciao to someone with a hot and spicy passion for murder.

This is a so-so book. I had read a book later in this series by this author and enjoyed it better. Maybe her writing is improving. The chapters in this book were too long for easy bedtime reading. Similar characters to her other stories in this series. Probably will not read another book in this series.
