Dee glanced at the holiday brochures scattered across Ryo’s coffee table and his jaw dropped. “England?” He spoke the word like a curse. “Are you insane? Don’t you remember what happened the last time we went there on vacation? The hotel manager tried to kill you!”
“I remember,” Ryo replied, amused, “but that’d hardly likely to happen again, is it? England’s a beautiful country with a lot of history to explore, and we already know the language, which simplifies things. It’s not like we got to see much the last time we were there, what with the murder investigation and everything, and you did say it was my turn to choose.”
“But England?” Dee still sounded dubious.
“The other end of the country this time,” Ryo assured him. “The south coast, I was thinking perhaps Devon and Cornwall, or maybe Dorset.”
“If we have to go to England, why not London?”
“Who’s picking this vacation, you or me? I don’t want to trade one big city for another. I want to enjoy the scenery.”
“Fine, have it your way,” Dee sighed. “What’s so special about Devon and Cornwall anyway?”
“Scones with jam and clotted cream?”
Dee perked up. “I’m in!”
