Rick Parker could hardly tell his boss no when he was asked to take a tour of senior citizens to Scandinavia, but he wasn’t happy about it. He didn’t like bimbo sitting with the young agents that worked for Collier Travel, it was even worse when he heard that Janice Walters would be escorting the other half of the group, it was far worse. A young bimbo agent was one thing, but one who was closer to his age and definitely not his type was another.

The last thing Janice wanted to do was escort a tour of senior citizens but her boss, Glen Collier, was very persuasive. Hopefully, Rick, the eternal playboy, would stick to his portion of the group and she could stick to hers. The last thing she wanted was to have to deal with him on a daily basis for the two weeks the trip would last.
How many people do you share your holiday snaps with? Half-a-dozen family members, perhaps? Some friends, or even giving a talk, with slides to a club or group, perhaps? Sherry Derr-Wille decided to go one better and share her holiday experiences in Scandinavia with thousands of readers.

In The Tour, she invites you to join her heroine, Janice Walters, and hero, Rick Parker, as they escort two groups of senior citizens on the same journey she has done in the past. Many of the events in her story replicate or approximate events that happened during one of her favorite holidays of all time.

Janice and Rick first met five years before the story starts and disliked each other intensely. She has no time for good-looking playboys with inflated egos, and he cringed at the thought of being cooped up with an overweight grey-haired bimbo, who constantly talked about her husband for two weeks.

Into this mix, Sherry Derr-Wille stirs in the local tour guide Inga Einerson, who's main aim is to get Rick into her bed.

Rick and Janice have to admit to wrong preconceptions about each other and to let go of their pasts before they can find their HEA.

This is a gentle read, in which her secondary characters play vital roles without overpowering the two main characters and is a book well worth choosing to read.
