Noa Parker has worked for Carlson-Rand Tours for the past five summers. This year her boss, Wendell Carlson, wants her to head his new tour which ventures into the heart of Morocco. Noa wants no part of that tour because of fear. When Noa was 8-years old, she got separated from her father for several hours, and she can still feel the terror that haunted her that day. Wendell Carlson was supposed to meet Noa to get her answer but instead sent the dashing young Taber Rand. When Noa sees him, she knows that she will not be able to turn the offer down. A telegram arrives for Noa before the touring season starts with bad news that her brother, Mike, has had a heart attack, and she must go to him. Before she reaches New York, Mike dies, and she is to be sole heir to Mike's estate and along with that comes her adopted 17-year old niece who is major trouble.
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

Noa Parker’s embarking on her first tour guide job in Morocco. She’d been to Tangier as a child fifteen years ago and still has uncomfortable memories of being lost in the old medina, but bravely dismisses the terror she felt and agrees to take on the task because she’d been working for the firm Carlson Rand Tours for some time. The firm’s owner was Wendell Carlson, a friend of her late father. Accompanying her is Taber Rand, the son of Wendell’s dead partner. It seems that the older Rand absconded with a great deal of the firm’s money, but Wendell is willing to (perhaps mistakenly?) give Taber a chance.

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.]

Nightmare in Morocco by Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton

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.

I enjoyed NIGHTMARE IN MOROCCO for several reasons. The authors' descriptions of the medina and surrounding countryside are authentic and pulled me into the plot as much as the tale of intrigue, thievery and betrayal. Britton and Jackson's character descriptions are well written and make me care about Noa and her fellow travelers. The storyline has already been described so I'll just say that I recommend this book and those previously written to anyone who loves a good mystery, especially with a foreign setting.
