Amelia Moore runs an investigation service, specializing in missing persons. She is ably assisted by Rick Bonito, a handsome, charming investigator. Their cases have taken them to a lot of interesting and exotic places. And, Amelia always solves the case. This is the third book in the Amelia Moore Detective Series, the two previous books being The Shamrock Case and The Bali Mystery.

Robert & Jenny Walker storm into Amelia’s office wanting her to find their cousin, Neal, heir to a fortune and owner of an orphanage in Mexico. He has been missing for two months. His inheritance will be forfeit if he doesn’t soon turn up to claim it and the orphanage will be sold.  Amelia agrees to take the case with only 7 days to find him.  Amelia and Rick quickly head to Veracruz, Mexico where Neal was last seen.

True to form, the author evokes a certain feeling for the country in which the mystery takes place. In this case, Mexico, replete with Mexican food, hot peppers, fiestas, and mariachi bands playing folk music.

I didn’t really learn anything new about Amelia and Rick. They are still attracted to each other, romantically involved and they still have their respective “bucket lists”.

This is a cozy mystery, which is, in the words of the author, “A cozy is an enjoyable story with a bit of humor. It can be slow paced but not boring by any means. The sleuth is always an intelligent and likeable woman.”

This is an entirely clean read that will appeal to fans of cozy mysteries, romance, and arm-chair travelogues.

Note: This book is rated C = clean read.
