A bargain deal on a safari + one dead body = An adventure no one could plan for.
Naomi and her estranged sister are off on a trip of a lifetime—an African safari, a bucket list trip for Naomi on which she got a last-minute deal. Naomi thinks traveling with her sister will be the worst part of her African safari until she finds one of their fellow travelers, the unlikable Dr. Higgins, dead. She gets more adventure than she bargained for when she starts investigating what she thinks is murder but the luxury lodge says was a tragic accident. She only has a few vacation days, and a few game drives, to find the killer.
What I want readers to know before reading my new series.
There are a few things I want readers to know before reading my new series, The Traveler Cozy Mystery series.
One—It is based on my travels. Each novel will be set in a country and place I have visited. I used my experiences to bring you the local flavor, sights and sounds of the locale. I hope it feels like you are there with me! The first book, Sleuth on Safari, is set in South Africa. To this day, this remains one of my favorite trips. I was blessed with wonderful traveling companions and phenomenal guides in this spectacular country.
Two—The places are real but the characters are fiction! My past (and future) travel companions and guides need not worry. You are not in this book. You are not the murderer, the annoying tourist with the relentless questions, or worse, the murder victim! I have used names of local guides for authenticity and to honor those that have guided me in their homelands.
Three—I hope these books inspire you to travel! Whether like me—solo, or like main character Naomi—with her family. There is nothing like seeing the world. It opens your mind and your soul.
P.S. This was written from my room’s patio in Rapa Nui! (Also known as Easter Island, Chile). Look for a future novel to be set in this exotic and fascinating destination.
About the Author
A. R. Kennedy lives in Long Beach, New York, with her two pups. She works hard to put food on the floor for them. As her favorite T-shirt says, ‘I work so my dog can have a better life’. She’s an avid traveler. But don’t worry. While she’s away, her parents dote on their grand-puppies even more than she does. Her writing is a combination of her love of travel, animals, and the journey we all take to find ourselves.
