Side Trip to Kathmandu
Sidney Marsh is in trouble. Her last 2 trips for Itchy Feet Travel have been… shall we say- disastrous?!
Her boss at Itchy Feet is not happy with Sidney. Even though Sidney says “it’s not her fault” he’s giving her one more (read: last) chance to have a trip and not to discover a dead body and end in a disaster.
Oh Sidney- what’s a girl to do that likes to put on her mystery hat and solve puzzling situations?
When Sidney finds out that Brooke, a very wealthy woman who uses Itchy Feet Travel for all her traveling needs, has specifically requested that Jay and Sidney come along on her next trip to India- Sidney is thrilled. She loves Brooke and can’t wait to see India. And once she arrives- her eye catches sight of a man named Adam- and it looks to be a good trip!
But something is fishy. Sidney is picking up on something and so is Jay. Then Brooke calls them into her room one night and tells the duo that there is more to this trip than seeing India. She needs Sidney’s help to solve a mystery and that is why she requested the duo specifically.
Sidney is torn. She loves Brooke and after hearing the details knows that Brooke needs her help. But one more disaster she’s out of a job. Jay, on the other hand, wants to head back to New York- and yet he knows he can’t leave the Southern Nancy Drew behind!
As the days in India go on, Sidney comes close to danger and finds that her observant nature might get her in more trouble than she bargained for. Will Sidney crack the case? Or will the mystery of who is trying to hurt Brooke die in India, along with Sidney?
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I sat down and begin to read about Miss Marsh’s latest adventures- and I found myself quickly settling in for a fun read. It’s a short book (less than 200 pages) and it was a bit of a palate cleanser for me as I’d been on a psychological thriller kick lately.
Being reunited with Sidney and Jay in this book was like seeing long-lost friends that you only see every 5 or so years- but you quickly fall back into a rhythm with them. Reading about how Sidney talked about India and knowing that she was there for more than just the sight seeing gave me a thrill.
The mystery flowed quite nicely- everyone was a suspect and there was much consideration in my mind as to who the bad guy was.
I hope we hear more from Miss Sidney Marsh in the future- she’s quite a fun character!
