Overview
Déjà Vu All Over Again

When intrepid travel agency owner Emily Andrew-Miceli takes her band of tech-savvy seniors to France, they say “Bonjour” by cruising down the Seine River. Along for the ride are a colorful cast of cruise-goers, including four sales reps who are the crème de la crème of the cosmetic industry and a group of morticians looking for a little joie de vivre as they sort out business conflicts. But once a guest is found dead along Normandy’s famed Alabaster coast, Emily bids adieu to the hopes of a fatality-free trip. Was it a mishap? Or was murder the entrée du jour? Traveling from the medieval alleyways of Rouen to Monet’s famous water lily garden, Emily must untangle a web of lies that began a half-century ago, on the very eve of the D-Day invasion.

France’s coastal region of Normandy, site of the D-Day landings, provides the setting for Hunter’s lackluster ninth travel-related mystery (after 2013’s Bonnie of Evidence). Emily Andrew Miceli, co-owner of the Destinations Travel Company, is leading a group of Iowan senior citizens on a Seine barge tour. The quirky passenger list includes Woody and Cal Jolly, father-and-son proprietors, respectively, of Jolly’s Funeral Home, and cosmetics sales rep Jackie, who was formerly Emily’s husband, Jack, before gender reassignment surgery. Hunter has a field day with the alternately snarky and insincere interactions between Jackie and her three fellow sales reps, all top performers enjoying the cruise compliments of their employer, cosmetics giant Mona Michelle. When one of the reps, Krystal, falls—or is pushed—off a cliff, tension among the already incompatible passengers escalates. Evocative descriptions of rugged Normandy scenery and Monet’s gardens at Giverny highlight this otherwise weakly plotted cozy. Agent: Irene Goodman, Irene Goodman Agency. (May)
