    1. The first of its series, this book takes newly widowed Mallory Marlowe on her first writing trip for her new job as a travel writer What she doesn t expect is that there will be a murder on her first night at the Florida resort, nor does she expect to be accused of the murder When she decides to investigate and clear her name, Mallory finds a plethora of suspects, each of whom had a very valid reason to want to murder the dead man In a great ending, one of the people that Mallory did not serious [...]

    2. Warning rant may include spoilers, read at your own risk I just couldn t get into this book, the author s introduction of the main character just doesn t match the way she s portrayed.The main character is supposed to be a recently widowed mother, who s been working as a freelance writer for the local paper for 12 year, tackling every subject under the sun Because of her husband s death she s suffering some kind of identity crisis and ends up applying for a job with a magazine with a recommendat [...]

    4. My goodness, when a well intentioned novel is being put together, this is excellent proof that all can go wrong I can read the effort to prepare and research and plan quirks in the plot to give the book a strong foundation But poor writing and a sloppy understanding of travel writing digs a grave for Murder Packs a Suitcase.Since I was married to a travel writer, hung out with travel writers, went to many travel writer gatherings and do some travel writing of my own, I know a bit about the subje [...]

    5. I got this one from Mystery Guild s buy one get one free Free was too much to pay for this stinker I got it because I ve read some of Baxter s other books which weren t bad and because it was set back where I used to live in Florida The idea of seeing Old Florida tourist traps in fiction sounded like fun andPublisher Weeklypraised it wonder what the pay off was.Mallory Marlowe is a 40 something recent widow with two college aged kids who s looking for a second start on life and she takes a frien [...]

    11. This is a new series from the author of another series I enjoy The Reigning Cats and Dogs series about a veterinarian in upstate New York.The protaganist of this series, Mallory Marlowe, a recent widow and mother of two older children who have left the nest finds herself at loose ends and applies for a job at a travel magazine, The Good Life Much to her surprise, she is hired as a travel writer, not as the monthly calendar editor that she expected Within days, she is winging off to Florida, to w [...]

    12. A fun cozy about a newly widowed woman who starts a job as a travel writer In this book, she travels to Orlando, FL I think part of the reason I enjoyed it is that she wrote about real places, several of which I ve visited She does find a potential love interest, and it s left open to explore fully in future books The dynamics between the various travel writers were fun, and I hope we run into them again in future books I already have the second book in the series and will start it soon

    13. Very good 1st book I particularly enjoyed the Orlando tips that were about attractions other than Disney We are planning a trip there in April and I ve been stumped on what to do besides Disney O Mallory is a recent widow that has decided to re enter the workforce She somewhat falls into a dream job as a travel writer just in time to write an article about Florida off the beaten path Unfortunately, her trip is soured by the murder of another travel writer Mallory is a prime suspect in the eyes o [...]

    15. If a genre blend of murder mystery and travel guide is your liking, then this is your book Actually, I somewhat enjoyed the guide aspects of old Florida Orlando area that were presented in the story, as I have visited some of them in my childhood, yet the general story gets lost in the travel guide If someone was visiting Florida for the first time, this might be a book that they would enjoy maybe but I would like to see if Cynthia Baxter s writing style is always as slow.

    16. Although I had not read any of the Reigning Cats and Dogs mysteries by this author, this title intrigued me, so I started reading it I absolutely couldn t put it down The characters were so authentic and the places described so realistically, I felt as if I was right there with Mallory trying to solve the murder Kudos to Ms Baxter on a well written, tightly plotted first in this series I look forward to many

    17. Fantastic cozy mystery I love the main character and her two kids I love that she s a travel writer and the book includes travel reviews I plan to visit some of these old Florida sites in Orlando I can t wait to find out what the future holds for the heroine and her family Hopefully a romance with her boss I definitely will be reading the next book in this series.

    18. I feel like I just spent a week in old Florida Which was OK because my parents lived in Florida for many years and I visited many of these places But I can see where if you don t have a Florida past, all of the descriptions of the old Florida attractions might get boring The story itself was entertaining and the murderer a surprise.

    19. I loved this book It just hit me where I was at the moment I opened it I have been on press trips with obnoxious journalists and every bit of what Baxter writes rings true, except for solving a murder On my press trips, we wouldn t have had a spare second to do that The book is a fun read and I love that the article she d written as a travel writer appears at the end of the book.

    20. I thoroughly enjoyed this A different twist with a travel writer solving the mystery An easy read quick moving story Does not get bogged down in description or background info, but nicely tied in with real existing Florida locations Looking forward to 2

    21. This is the first in a series new to me It s a travel themed mystery series Her first assignment was finding kitsch Florida outside of the big theme parks I learned about great places that I had not considered I look forward to reading in this series.

    22. Another fun mysteryis is the first in a new series with the main character, Mallory Marlowe, who has a new job as a travel writer The first stop is Orlando, FL, focusing on kitsch attractions Unfortunately a dead body complicates the journey.

    23. This was a good mystery read Page turner and a good read while on vacation in Florida The book concludes with 8 travel attraction reviews Mallory Marlowe is the lead character and provided an interesting plot til the end It was a great summer read.

    24. I enjoyed the middle aged sleuth, trying a new career of travel writing after the death of her husband Lots of info about kitschy Old Florida attractions and interesting tie in with the murder and everyone involved s past.

    25. This book was great it was fun learning about all the kitschy attractions that still exist in Florida I m sad that there are only two books in this series because they were both fun and informative

    26. I happened to be vacationing in Florida at the time I read this book I was familiar with the landmarks described in the the novel The mystery itself was good and i will continue to read future releases by this author.

    27. This is definitely a fun murder mystery read I liked it better than her other series and the travel quotes at the beginning of each chapter were fun to read.
