Iowa travel tour guide Emily Andrews is on the road again. In this sixth installment of the Passport to Peril series, Emily and her spunky group of senior citizens have booked a tour of Scandinavia. The Iowans butt heads with another group of travellers in their tour group who hail from a gated retirement community in Florida. When one of the Floridians is found dead in Helsinki, the Finnish police suspect one of Emily's group members of committing the murder. As Emily and her group of senior citizens start sleuthing into the murder, they discover that Portia was widely disliked and there are many who would like to have seen her dead. This was another amusing story in this series.
I liked this book much more than the last few in the series. Sometimes I think the characters run together, and that wasn't the case with this one. I liked that the mystery was solved partway through the trip.
