A trip to die for….
Accompanying her grandmother on a seniors tour of Switzerland, Emily Andrew had envisioned a vacation straight out of a travel brochure: spectacular scenery, great food, and a classy European hotel, all worlds away from her rural Iowa hometown. But her dream trip quickly snowballs into mayhem when smooth-talking tour escort Andy Simon is found dead. To be sure, Andy was as randy as a mountain goat on Viagra, hitting on every miss - Swiss or otherwise - within striking distance. His constant advances were driving Emily cuckoo - but had someone orchestrated his untimely death?
For savvy, resourceful Emily, leading the tour in Andy's place is only natural. But she can't remain neutral when a fellow traveler takes a fatal plunge - she's convinced a murderer lurks among them. With precision timing, sexy Etienne Miceli steps in to investigate, and Emily warms to the suave detective. Still, with the group roster suddenly sprouting more holes than the local cheese, Emily wonders: is there a safe haven anywhere in the shadow of the Alps?

This is the first book in the Passport to Peril Mysteries. Emily Andrew is on vacation with her grandmother in Switzerland. Everything that can go wrong does and Emily faces each problem head on. The story is entertaining and fun. I will buy the next in the series.
While listening to the first two chapters I often found myself laughing out loud. After that I laughed less and less. By chapter 7 I quit reading. The characters and the mystery weren't enough to keep me interested.
Narrator Kathleen McInerney does a good job. I just lost interest in what she was reading.
If you don't like broad humor and ditzy characters you may not enjoy this book.
I really enjoyed this start to the series and had to laugh out loud at some places. But honestly, sometimes I thought is was quite rude, how Mrs. Hunter put down the swiss. I wonder, if she will do this to the other nations this series. I guess you just have to enjoy the funny story, but don't rely on the authencity of the characters and places.
