While visiting the land of Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes, bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Samantha Washington finds herself on a tragical mystery tour . . .


Sam joins Nana Jo and her Shady Acres Retirement Village friends Irma, Dorothy, and Ruby Mae on a weeklong trip to London, England, to experience the Peabody Mystery Lovers Tour. The chance to see the sights and walk the streets that inspired Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle is a dream come true for Sam—and a perfect way to celebrate her new publishing contract as a mystery author.


But between visits to Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel district and 221B Baker Street, Major Horace Peabody is found dead, supposedly of natural causes. Despite his employer’s unfortunate demise, the tour guide insists on keeping calm and carrying on—until another tourist on their trip also dies under mysterious circumstances. Now it’s up to Sam and the Shady Acres ladies to mix and mingle among their fellow mystery lovers, find a motive, and turn up a murderer . . .

And I thought . . .
First there's the cover. I am a cover Junkie and this one got me.
Then there are Nana and her friends and thier craziness that steals the show.  I think V.M.Burns  is  Golden Girls fan. 
And the locale and the superb discripton of England makes you feel like your there.
The main character Sam not only owns a book store but she is a writer too and when she gets the chance between present day Murders she is penning a story of her own.  
So the reader has more than one murder to try and solve.
The twists and turns will keep you turning the pages. 
And you'll be giggling along the way.

I really enjoyed my Journey across the pond and look forward to more adventures with Sam and Nana. 

I received a complimentary copy.
