So when a friend tells her about a trip to England sponsored by Winchester College, she jumps at the chance for a girls getaway.

In London, Professor Quentin Rea, a ladies' man and former flirt of Lucy's, arrives to take over the tour¿and she finds that while his hairline has receded, his amorous intentions have not. Lucy also begins to notice peculiar behavior among other members of the group. And when she discovers all of them have pasts connected to the late Professor Temple, she suspects his death was an elaborate act of revenge. Then another tour member dies, and Lucy is suddenly ensnared in a daring scheme that could lead her to a mastermind of murder¿or make her the next victim...

This book reminds me of being invited to someones home to watch video of their vacation in London--complete with long-winded explanations of EVERY item they ate and EVERY street they walked down. The murder seems completely extraneous to the travelogue. Also, silly 40-year-old women are not my "thing."

Been reading this series for many years and I still look forward to each new title. Love the main character, Lucy Stone, a part-time reporter for the "Pennysaver" in Maine. Lucy's job and life experiences seem to land her in the middle of murders and mysteries, but she always solves the crimes.

As usual, plenty of action. I never figured out what book the cover illustration is really for, but it doesn't fit this story.

I thought this was one of her better books.

I loved all the books in this series EXCEPT this one. All the author did was bash everything about London. It was getting on my nerves and I did not bother finishing the book. A very rare occurrence for me. I believe British people would be insulted while reading this one.

Was very disappointed in the ending.
