    One thought on “Bantam of the Opera

      It took me a very very long time to finally clear this from the bedside table stack. I'm assuming it was my "no love" for opera that made this such a chore. I didn't really care who lived or died and I certainly couldn't give a flying fig about whodunit. The one true thing is that it was all wrapped up nicely at the end. I still love these b&b cousins and would gladly read anything they star in.

    2. Tracey on said:

      This series is becoming addictive. Short stories around 200 pages. Reading them in order keeps the main story going. Downright ridiculous mysteries but worth reading.

    3. Laura on said:

      I love the series, but this wasn't one of my favorites in the series. I would give it more like 3 1/2 stars, because I liked it, but not as much as the others, which I generally give 4 stars. I figured out the "who dunnit" relatively early, and even the motive. I don't know if that detracted from my rating or added to it, but I guess the plot was pretty easy to figure out. The book was about opera, which is one of my least favorite things, so that made it less interesting to read.

      I do believe I have this one before and enjoyed it just as much. Judith and her cousin Renie and the two mothers that can not get along.

    5. The Badger on said:

      I have an affinity for cozy mysteries. They generally aren't written in pursuit of a spot on the bestseller list; rather, cozies are written to give the reader a sense of comfort and calm (ironically, by way of murder). My mom read cozies to escape her three eccentric young daughters and grumpy husband: one daughter, the artist, painted five-foot tall green flowers on the side of the freshly painted rental when she was four; the adventurous daughter asked which way north was, and was found by ne [...]

      I figured out the "how" of this one right away. As to the "who" or "why?" I'm going to keep reading.I'm also beginning to HATE the word "reposed." Can this author not use a thesaurus?Finished the book and again, I didn't see the "who" coming, although the "why" became obvious halfway through the book: money.Getting to like these characters a bit more, so I think I'll keep reading.

    7. Wanda on said:

      The owner of a B&B has some opera people as her guests and the tenor gets murdered. She searches for the killer as she doesn't want the person staying at her place. Her cousin helps her while both their husbands are out of town. She also is having an old toolshed converted to an apartment for her mother.

    8. Glenn Harris on said:

      This time Judith McMonigle Flynn's bed and breakfast is filled with the entourage of a famous opera star (and the bulk of the star himself). Of course someone is murdered and of course it is up to Judith and her cousin/sidekick Reenie to catch the killer.

    9. Susan on said:

      An operatic tenor and his entourage are staying at Judith Flynn's bed and breakfast. Though there's dissension in the group, murder is the last thing Judith expects or wants, especially since her policeman husband is off at a conference and his partner's wife is having a baby.

    10. Linda on said:

      Ok entry in the series. I was totally kept guessing as to the identity of the murderer and even after I needed help with the why.

    11. Anne on said:

      Horrible name, weird cover art, but overall an excellent book. Of course, I only picked it up because of the name and art. I thought it was going to be about chickens solving a mystery.

    12. Terry on said:

      Not my kind of female detective mystery. I'm testing our library's e-book capabilities and this sounded interesting.

    13. Nicole on said:

      A preening, hypochondriac tenor with his wife and agent, their ditzy secretary, and their flamboyant producer with enormous appetites stay at the B&B.

    14. Michele on said:

      I know this is a cozy mystery but parts of it made me laugh out loud!

    15. Kim on said:

      Another fun & festive mystery by Mary Daheim. I enjoy the progression of their lives!

    16. Sallie on said:

      Not Josephine Tey or Agatha Christie, but ok mysteries. I'll work my way through it via ILL instead of purchase.

    17. Tina Manousakis on said:

      I love this series. Judith and Renie and company hit all the right notes

    18. Holly Lynn on said:

      Relaxed and light murder mystery I recommend to read the books in order.
