If Amelia and Rick can't find him soon, the fortune will be turned over to Dell's brother and sister who intend to close down "Uncle Dell's Orphanage." If that happens, where will the children go?
What I thought of this book.
Another good book from this cozy mystery series that is based on missing persons. Amelia is a private investigator and she specializes in missing person cases.
This time two young adults come to her for help finding their missing relative. He is the heir to a lot of money and the one who will keep some orphanages open in some regions in Mexico. His other family members are not so happy about him giving all to the younger man who had a heart just like he did.
She enlist the help of her partner and love interest, Rick to go to Mexico with her and try and track down the missing heir. They only have four days to do so before a lawyer steps in and proceeds to give the money over to the others.
There is someone who doesn’t want them to find him because they run into a bit of trouble in Mexico.
I really like the Ameilia Moore stories because you get to travel around the country. In book one it was Bali, book two was Ireland and now Mexico. I also like that they are not your typical cozy mysteries because they are mostly just surrounding missing person and not murdered bodies.
I really like Amelia and Rick and I love how they are with each other. I especially like how Rick takes it slow with Amelia cause she seems a bit gun shy with relationships. I love their bucket list quest and his always seems to be so sweet like, helping at the orphanage.
If you enjoy cozy mysteries then I think you will enjoy this series as well.
Diane Lehman is great in this series and by now she is Amelia Moore to me. I don’t have an audio sample but you can listen on audible.com.
