About this book
Start with an unlucky number. Throw in a romantic location. Include a dashing Frenchman and an uncompromising professor. And you have all the ingredients for a passport to murder.

This semester, it seems that Professor Prather’s dreams are about to come true. Ever since she was a young girl, she’s imagined going to France, and her French colleague, André Duman, has finally made that trip possible. Over spring break, she and André are to lead a group of students and faculty to Paris to explore the City of Light. But before she can utter her first bonjour, a professor dies, and they are stuck in Minneapolis. She returns to Copper Bluff with an unstamped passport and a mystery to solve.

When André becomes the prime suspect, Emmeline puts her research skills to good use, determined to find out who really killed the professor and spoiled their spring break plans. With thirteen travelers assembled, the possibilities are varied and villainous. Luckily, her dear friend and sidekick, Lenny Jenkins, is close by. Together, they will sort through the conflicting clues even if it costs them time, trouble, or tenure.

My thoughts
I have not read the first book in this series but I was not in the least bit lost. This is a fun new series to me. I felt bad for Emmeline when her trip to Paris got cancelled as that is a dream of mine to go there. Then to have Andre become a suspect that had to be the icing on the cake so to speak. I liked how the author developed the characters and how they all play off of each other. Her descriptions of places were very detailed and you can feel a part of the story. I had a hard time figuring out who "did" it due to the number of suspects but that is part of what made this book fun for me. I will be reading more books by this author.
