Summary
"Texas high school teacher Jocelyn Shore and her cousin Kyla are on a once-in-a-lifetime guided tour of Egypt with a motley crew of fellow travelers when the most odious of the bunch, a nosy, disagreeable woman named Millie Owens, takes a fatal fall off of one of the great pyramids. And that's only the beginning. From the guide who always seems to be off on his cell phone having the most urgent conversations to the young woman who begs off of almost every excursion claiming to be ill to the supposed married couple who can hardly speak to each other, Jocelyn and Kyla's tour group is full of people who may or may not be exactly who they say they are. And one of them may very well be a murderer. Janice Hamrick's Mystery Writers of America/Minotaur Books Competition winner Death on Tour is a delightful debut and the beginning of a wonderfully charming cozy series featuring the determined teacher Jocelyn Shore, who always seems to get wrapped up in a mystery against her usually very sound judgment"--
