Paris—the city of love, lights … and murder? Join tour guide Lana Hansen as she escorts five couples on an unforgettable Valentine-themed vacation to France! Unfortunately it will be the last trip for one passenger…
Lana Hansen’s future is looking bright. She has money in her bank account, a babysitter for her cat, and even a boyfriend. Regrettably she won’t get to celebrate Valentine’s Day with her new beau, Chad. Instead, she will be leading a lovers-only tour in France. Luckily for Lana, her best friend, Willow, and her partner, Jane, will be joining her.
Things go downhill when Lana’s new boyfriend shows up in Paris for her tour—with his wife. Chad is not the website developer he claimed to be, but a famous restaurant critic whose love of women rivals his passion for food.
After Chad drops dead during a picnic under the Eiffel Tower, a persistent French detective becomes convinced that he was poisoned. And the inspector’s sights are set on several members of the tour—including Lana!
While escorting her group through the cobblestone streets of Montmartre, the grand gardens of Versailles, and the historic Marché des Enfants Rouges market, Lana must figure out who really killed Chad before she has to say bonjour to prison and adieu to her freedom.
Introducing Lana Hansen, tour guide, reluctant amateur sleuth, and star of the Travel Can Be Murder Cozy Mystery Series. Join Lana as she leads tourists and readers to fascinating cities around the globe on intriguing adventures that, unfortunately for Lana, often turn deadly.
The Travel Can Be Murder Cozy Mysteries are heartwarming stories about making friends, traveling, and celebrating new experiences. Book One—Death on the Danube—is available now. Coming soon: Books Three (Death by Windmill) and Book Four!

I loved the first book in this series Death on the Danube so I couldn’t wait to read this next adventure for our tour guide Lana Hansen.
Lana is back and this time she is taking a tour to the most romantic city in the world for Valentines – Paris, France. After her last tour despite the death, her life is looking up, she has a job that she loves and even her love life is on the up and up. Though she is sad she wont be able to spend it with her new beau Chad, she is shocked to discover that he is on the tour….. with his wife!!
It is clear that Lana and Chad haven’t been honest with each other, they only went out on a few dates so I wasn’t anything series but after her husband cheated on her she is a appalled that she has essentially became the other women. She decided to remain professional and treat Chad as tour guest and ignore him as much as possible.
As the tour progresses we learn a bit more about each person and it becomes clear that Chad is a food critic back in Seattle that writes such scathing reviews that goes as far as closing businesses down, so when he collapses and dies whilst on a picnic tour the suspect list starts to pile up even a french chef who was ruined due to Chad’s scathing review is on the list!
I loved how this story played out, everyone had a motive to kill Chad and when the police discovered that Lana was dating him she even became a suspect! I thought I had it figured out but the author did a great job of keeping me guessing until all was revealed.
I am really enjoying this series, and cant wait for book 3!!
