I have read all the books in the series and the characters, Emily and Nana just keep getting better with age. They can get themselves into some fascinating situations and murder seems to follow Emily around no matter what country they go visit.
Maddy did a sensational job with Dutch Me Deadly. I was calculating who did what up until the end. I was wrong on two accounts. There will be some characters you love and some you just want to slap.
The setting in Holland was surprising. The descriptions make you feel you are on the tour with the Iowa gang. After reading the book it makes me want to go over and check some of the sites out myself. You can tell the author did a lot of research.
If you like your mystery with fun characters, humor, and some travel this is the series for you! Sit back and relax and take a trip with Maddy Hunter. You won't regret it. Truly a series worth reading if you are new to it - boy are you in for a treat! Buy them all and curl up on the couch. Can't think of a better way to spend a winter day.
I've had this on pre-order since the first time it popped up on Amazon's "Coming Soon" section. I took it out of the package as if it were a fine piece of jewelry. And, after finishing the novel, I have to say it absolutely didn't disappoint.
What fun to spend time with Emily and her senior group again. And, I love the whole seniors and technology angle. Absolutely loved it. Bernice's quest to be the facebook friend champion and everyone texting each other, even though they were on the same bus was hysterical (and all too true). My only (MINOR) suggestion for the next one (and, from all indications, I'm sure I won't be disappointed)...a bit more Etienne, please.
But, this book was great. So enjoyable and refreshing. While there was comedy throughout, it really comes from individual personalities, rather than at the expense of anyone or anything. And, that's very hard to accomplish. Maddy Hunter does it beautifully.
Can't wait till the next one.
As you will remember, this series is filled with laughter and bodies and this latest novel doesn't disappoint in the least.
Added to the reality of time passing is our beloved seniors discovering the art of 'texting.' It is Emily who needs to step up and join the 21st Century! When the hated Tour Bus Guide, Charlotte is run over by a bicycle at the first stop...you know we are truly back.
I also love the glimpses into history, such as Anne Frank's house and the description of the Red Light District, where alas our Seniors lose themselves in. The laughs are mighty and continuous and I am so eager to sign up for Edinburgh next!
Enjoy, Maddy is Back!
I understand this is one of a series with many of the same characters. This is the first of the series that I have read; therefore, I am a bit out of sync. In my opinion, this book stands alone and does not need to be read in order published.
