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.
Who is your ideal travel companion?
For main character, Naomi, in my new cozy mystery series—The Traveler Cozy Mystery series, it is not her younger sister, Charlotte.

Have you ever gone on vacation with your family? Most of you probably have. Trips with your children and trips with your parents as a child are probably (hopefully) highlights of your life.

But Charlotte and Naomi didn’t have family vacations. They had spent little time together since their parents’ divorce when they were children. Would you want to travel with your sibling? I bet some would love it. For others, it would  not be a carefree vacation. For Naomi, she chose traveling with her sister out of desperation. She found a great last minute deal for her dream vacation—an African safari. After asking several other people, she ran out of options and called her sister. She wasn’t sure who was more surprised when Charlotte said yes. It was probably their parents.

Would you travel with a family member, or even a friend, that you didn’t feel like you knew very well?

Two sisters traveling together on a safari could be stressful—one room, all activities regimented and together, one bathroom—but add a murder to the mix? That’s definitely going to ratchet up the stress. Naomi finds a dead body. The lodge thinks it’s a tragic accident. Naomi is the only one who thinks the fellow traveler was murdered. She spends her free time at the luxury lodge investigating the death, which drives her sister nuts. Will their relationship be better or worse after their vacation? You’ll have to read, Sleuth on Safari, to find out! 

So, who is your ideal travel companion?

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.
