The tour from day one is a catastrophe. Trouble starts when members of the tour group are robbed. Noa and Belda Ward are all most crushed when a dark-hooded man dislodges a rock, and it all most falls on them. It becomes apparent that who ever is responsible wants something more-Noa's life. Unable to trust anyone, even Taber, Noa struggles alone to learn the identity of the hooded attacker as her once auspicious summer turns into a fear-inspiring nightmare.
Nightmare in Morocco is very well written with splendid characters. My personal favorite is Belda Ward. I hope to be as sassy as she is when I reach her age.
Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton have written a mystery/romance that really warms your heart while keeping you on the edge of your seat. Best of all, I could recommend it to my 15-year old niece to read. Good work, Loretta and Vickie. 4 Stars
One fly in Noa’s ointment is teenage Cathy, the daughter of her recently deceased brother. Noa inherited the money and the responsibility for Cathy and so the unwilling teen was with her for this tour. Due to some no-shows, Noa ends up taking a coach-party of thirteen – unlucky for some?
Budding romance between Noa and Taber, the conniving of Cathy, the appearance of handsome Greg who has eyes for Noa, the exotic locations of Fez, Casablanca and Tangier, the colourful souks, unexplained thefts, and a number of near-miss deaths combine to make this romantic suspense an enjoyable page-turner with a satisfying denouement.
[The errors commented upon by others didn't detract from the story, which was entertaining.]
I love a suspense story and this one delivered for me.
Noa Parker has a history with Morocco and it's not a pleasant one. The last thing she wants is to conduct a vacation tour there. Of course she's about to be presented with several other last things she wants and it's only going to make things worse.
I loved that this started with her dying brother leaving all his money to her and asking her to take care of his troublesome adopted teenage daughter. Noa begins to suspect that the young girl has been stealing from her father when several valuable possession come up missing when she does an inventory. She reluctantly honors her brothers wishes and takes the girl with her to her home in Spain.
When they return to Spain and then to Morocco for the tour and people on the tour start getting robbed it's not difficult to connect the dots. But it gets complicated when there are several more suspicious dots on the tour. There are enough suspects to fill one hand at least. Soon things become deadly and it looks like someone is trying to murder someone on the tour.
I loved the development of the fragile relationship that Noa has with Cathy and then the strained relationship she has between her and a coworker and one of the tourists when they start making advances toward her. She has a preference but he seems to also be a suspect. There is a point where Noa has so many suspects she doesn't know who to trust.
This novel is definitely a suspense and romance.
There is the caveat that there are some Grammar problems. Probably around a handful that I found distressing and usually these involved punctuation.Read more ›

The book really was ok. There was no depth to the story and it didnt flow very well. The characters were mostly rather bland. The book also needs a lot of proof reading.Published on February 28, 2013 by Amazon Customer
