Book Review/Giveaway-Passport to Murder by Mary Angela

About the book (provided by Great Escapes Tours)
Start with an unlucky number. Throw in a romantic location. Include a dashing Frenchman and an uncompromising professor. And you have all the ingredients for a passport to murder.
This semester, it seems that Professor Prather’s dreams are about to come true. Ever since she was a young girl, she’s imagined going to France, and her French colleague, André Duman, has finally made that trip possible. Over spring break, she and André are to lead a group of students and faculty to Paris to explore the City of Light. But before she can utter her first bonjour, a professor dies, and they are stuck in Minneapolis. She returns to Copper Bluff with an unstamped passport and a mystery to solve.
When André becomes the prime suspect, Emmeline puts her research skills to good use, determined to find out who really killed the professor and spoiled their spring break plans. With thirteen travelers assembled, the possibilities are varied and villainous. Luckily, her dear friend and sidekick, Lenny Jenkins, is close by. Together, they will sort through the conflicting clues even if it costs them time, trouble, or tenure.
What others are saying
It is a delightful read, and as my toddler says” brilliant, just brilliant!”
~Bibliophile Reviews
I adored this book!
~A Chick Who Reads
This is a great mystery novel that has a strong female lead, good supporting characters that offer some funny interactions, and enough action to keep the reader turning the page while guessing what will happen next.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
The characters are very relatable and interesting. There is mention of attraction and romance that never overtakes the theme of mystery. The clues are given out at comfortable spacing.
~Laura’s Interests
This is a quick read, with a curious mystery, a quite variety of suspects and a mystery peanut.

And I thought
My first thought was A trip to Paris cut short by a murder.  Dawng not a great way to start spring break.  And then when a close friend and colleague is accused well double Dawng!

My second thought was my sister would love this book!   My sister loves academia.  She works at a college. She loves mysteries.  She would just 'get' this book and series.

I was intrigued by the South Dakota location.  When I think S.D. I don't automatically think a series around a college town. 

Although Passport to Murder is book 2 in the series it is easy to pick up and read and get into the story.   
As in book 1 An Act Of Murder Emmeline is caught up in a murder and calls on her colleague Lenny to help her figure out just  who dun it. 

The reader is kept guessing who dun it all the way to the end when Emmaline announces to everyone who and how the murder was committed.  

Passport to Murder is a great read and part of an interesting series.  

I know what I am getting my sister for Christmas. 

I received a complimentary copy from Great Escapes Tours.
