#1 Murder Packs A Suitcase series - Cozy Mystery

An entertaining cozy featuring Mallory Malloy. Her new job as a travel writer sends her to Orlando, Florida with a small group of travel writers. A very bizarre murder occurs at their hotel, and Mallory investigates.

I enjoyed the murder mystery and armchair trip to Florida. The mega-corporation theme park destinations were not on the agenda at all, but trips to "old Florida" of the 60's and '70's were featured (yay!). Mallory and her group of writers take the reader to Gatorland, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Cypress Gardens Adventure Park, Shell World, and many other fun and varied spots. I loved the little details about Florida and quick trivia notes about other "off the map" landmarks of interest in other states (such as The Agricultural Drainage Hall of Fame, or Smoky the Bear's burial site in New Mexico).

Cynthia Baxter is also the author of the long running mystery series "Reigning Cats and Dogs", featuring a vet with a mobile clinic (Dr. Jessica Popper). This is one of my very favorite series.
