Blake Pierce is a best-selling author.

Blake has written multiple series but is perhaps best known for being the USA Today best-selling author of the popular Riley Page mystery series.

Murder (and Baklava) is the first novel in the European Voyage series of fictional novels by Blake Pierce. The main character in this book is a young woman named London Rose.

London is 33 years old. Everything is going as it should in her life. She has been dating her boyfriend for a long time, and things have been going well. But when he flips the script by proposing to her and asking for her hand in marriage, she realizes that perhaps this isn’t what she wants out of life at all.

Getting proposed to makes her have the realization that she is staring down the barrel of a life that is stable, but also one that is predictable and pre-determined in many aspects. She even rethinks their relationship, assuming that they will have a largely passionless life together. So, London does what most girls in her situation would do– she freaks out.

Not long after freaking out, she does the only thing she can think to. She goes the other way. London commits to this one hundred percent, even going so far as to take a job all the way across the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a complete one-eighty from the life that she was living before. She gets a gig working as a tour guide on a luxury European cruise line.

The cruise job is an exciting one as the boat goes through one country a day, giving the cruise passengers and London the chance to see the world and get some more culture in a structured way. London is excited to start a new life. Maybe she doesn’t know what she is searching for, but she knows that she wants a more romantic and exciting life, one that doesn’t feel as pre-planned out as it would have had she married her former beau. She doesn’t know where it is exactly, but she feels certain that it is out there somewhere.

It isn’t long into the job before London knows that she is thrilled with how things are going. She’s so excited to be doing something that takes her to see new places. Plus, it’s all places in Europe that she has not been to before. The small river towns that she gets to visit are not only historic but charming, too.

Every night, London gets the chance to see a new port and to try some new food. She also gets to meet a lot of unique and interesting people along the way. It’s just the perfect way to travel, and it’s nice because it’s not that predictable– not like her old life was going to be. She couldn’t be happier with the way things are going.

Things are going too well for it to last. Something bad finally happens when a high-maintenance and wealthy cruise passenger is discovered dead outside of Budapest. Just like that, the cruise has shifted into something that is unpredictable. London is dismayed as things look very bad for her. She was the last person to see the passenger when they were alive.

Suspicion falls solely on her, meaning that she is left with the weight of trying to clear her name. London now has a new task to try and solve what may have been a crime (if they were killed). In doing so, she will prove that she had nothing to do with the death and everything can move on.

She even has a new partner in crime (or not crime, as it were) in an orphaned dog that is now apparently her sidekick. With her buddy at her side, she’s trying to clear her name and put the cruise line’s mind at ease as much as it can be put at ease with a formerly alive passenger now dead with no idea what caused it.

London’s got her work cut out for her, but it’s well worth it to clear her name and finally move on from things. Will she be able to put the pieces together and figure out what happened to the passenger? Funny and engaging, take a trip through Europe and try to solve a murder mystery! Get a copy of Murder (and Baklava) to find out what happens and whether London will be able to work her way through this conundrum and discover the cause of the passenger’s death!

Death (and Apple Strudel) is the second novel in the European Voyage series of fictional novels by Blake Pierce. London Rose is back again. In the first story, London totally changed her life around after freaking out and basically running away. She got a job as a tour guide on a very nice cruise line, something that was poised to give her the exciting life that she craves.

She is still working as a tour guide, this time going on a cruise that goes into Vienna and Salzburg. This is where Mozart called home and is often deemed ‘the birthplace of music’. Everything seems great, until a tour of Mozart’s theatre for the passengers ends with the tour guide winding up dead.

Everything there is a suspect. Which one of them killed her, if any? What could have been the motivation? London is determined to find out. Read this book and find out for yourself!
