One of our new distributed titles picked up a great review in Library Journal this week. Hera’s Revenge: An Yvonne Suarez Travel Mystery by Wendy Dingwall (Canterbury House Publishing) lets readers explore Greece without ever needing a passport.
Hera’s Revenge is the first book in the Yvonne Suarez Travel Mystery series, which features the title character’s adventures as a travel agent at Pinkerton Travel Agency in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. On a plane to Greece, Yvonne meets David Ludlow, a handsome software designer. David needs a vacation from his stressful job, and this itinerary to the land of mythology, Greek philosophers, and early democrats is just the ticket to a leisurely escape. A budding romance between Yvonne and David ensues until grumpy passengers, missing museum art, and deathly accidents plague their journey. When an airport employee turns up dead in baggage claim upon their arrival in Athens, Yvonne turns from travel agent to amateur slueth, with a crew of tourist at her side.
And congrats to Wendy for what Library Journal had to say about the book:
Yvonne, superconscientious travel agent, plans the perfect Greek tour for her group, only to have corpses pop up almost immediately. And then a priceless little gold sculpture of Hera is stolen from the museum when her group is there. As the wide-eyed bunch explores Athens and beyond, Yvonne befriends handsome David, who assists her in this homage—both in tone and locale—to Mary Stewart’s The Moon-Spinners. The author’s love of Greece and her insights into a tour group’s dynamics make this light romantic suspense debut a welcome distraction for an armchair traveler. A series to watch.
