R.I.P. in Reykjavík: A Traveler Cozy Mystery
by A R Kennedy
About R.I.P. in Reykjavík
Traveling with your family can be murder.
One wedding party + one estranged mother = another vacation that goes array for Naomi.
Naomi is off on another international vacation. She thinks travelling with her mother will be the most difficult part of her trip until she meets the rest of the tour group—a wedding party. It only gets worse when she finds the groom dead. Everyone’s a suspect on her Icelandic tour of this stunning country.

This is book two in the Traveler Cozy Mystery series by A.R Kennedy, and whilst I have not read book one, it was easy enough to read this one as a stand alone. Naomi is off on vacation to the amazon Iceland but this time she is going with her mother! It would appear that they have somewhat of a turbulent relationship, which may been touched more on in book one, Naomi chose to live with her father whilst her brother and sister stayed with her mom after they split up so I am guessing that is where the animosity is stemming from in their relationship.
Once they arrive in Reykjavik they make a start on the many excursions they have planned and end up being in a tour group with a wedding party (who honestly brings their family and best friends on honeymoon with them??) Soon disaster strikes for the new groom when when he dies whilst snorkelling. The group are all questioned and it seems like it was a tragic accident, but as the trip goes on it becomes clear that he was in fact murdered.
The dynamics of the wedding party are questionable at best, and whilst I thought I might have figured out who would want to kill him when it was all pieced together and the actual culprit was revealed I was initially shocked. I loved how during the trip Naomi manages to salvage something out of her relationship with her mother and I hope it brings them even closer in future books.
I loved this story and I absolutely loved being transported to Iceland, it is a place on my bucket list to visit and reading this makes me want to go right now, I found myself googling the places and sights that Naomi and the group was visiting.
