      Money is tight for Judith McGonigle Flynn and her cousin Renie. Judith's Bed and Breakfast isn't attracting as many customers as it used to and Renie isn't getting any offers for her graphic design work and is seriously in debt. Judith is also dealing with Rudi, a neighbor who likes to practice his violin at all hours of the night. To top it all off, Judith's latest guests are an odd bunch and she's not too happy when one of them is murdered. Add in Renie's missing credit cards and Rudi's missin [...]

      If I hear once more about Judith's hip replacement I think I'll shriek! The surgeons should be talking to MS Daheim about her portrayal of the results of their work. Her weakness and pain is not the way I hear it and my Mother, at about the same age, had a replacement after several years of extreme pain and never complained of difficulties from it. Anyway - the extreme complexities of the musical family was difficult to follow. I almost needed to draw up a family tree. Judith's mother drives me [...]

      If you haven't read this series from the beginning, stop. Put this book down. Go get the first book and read them in order. Trust me. If you pick up this series in the middle like I did at first, you will probably not enjoy it. You really need to "grow" with these characters or you might just hate them. It took a couple books to hit the stride, but by book 3, I fell in love with them. I'm in the middle right now, but wanted to stop to giggle about the reference to Abbot and Costello's "Who's On [...]

      Rudi, a violinist, and his piano-teaching girlfriend, rent a house near Hillside Manor, and antagonize all the neighbors. In an effort to be friendly, Judith Flynn lets Rudi hold a party for a few guests--including three of the bed and breakfast visitors--in her parlor. When one of the guests faints, Judith is guiltily relieved that it's nothing more serious, but a more serious problem is coming. Judith is, unusually, encouraged to investigate by one of the police officers on the case, but the s [...]

      It's silly. I'm on page 145 of 341 and I'm not going to finish it. It isn't one big thing -- it's lots of little things. Several of the characters were just too stupid and annoying. The toxicology report comes back from the lab over night. Frozen sirloin is being served as beef Stroganoff apparently in less than an hour. A stranger walks in and sprains an ankle, the main character asks "Can I get you anything?" and, when he answers "Scrambled eggs" she just goes straight out to the kitchen and s [...]

      Mary Daheim is an artist at most. Her pen is her paint brush; her words are her pictures.Her characters come alive the moment you start reading "Saks & Violins." I had a rough time in the middle, but only to find out that I accidentally skipped two pages (somehow they got stuck together). After figuring out that snafu, her story continued without any flaw.The plot was a development beyond its kind. The characters, even though has their own little flaws, reminded me of some of my family membe [...]

      One of many in the cozy Bed and Breakfast mystery series. Judith and Renie are like old familiar friends to me by now. It's best to start at the beginning of the series, but each book has explanation of the heroine's (Judith's) background. Good if you want something light and fast, and if you are a mystery lover. But like I said in the beginning, just one of many in the series, and nothing special.

    8. Kay on said:

      What did I learn from this book? I learned that even the best cozy author ocassionally writes a loser. I could barely get through this one. There were so many characters and they were all so boring. If it weren't for Judith's cousin Rennie's droll sense of humor, I wouldn't have given this book even two stars

    9. Christine on said:

      This was just okke a place-filler from Daheim before the next book. The mystery was solved a little too abruptly, and there were a few too many characters who didn't really go anywherehey detective with the allergies, did you do anything besides sneeze? Still, Judith and Renie are a treat as usual and Renie's ash reading skills alone make the book worth picking up.

    10. Faith on said:

      Some of the characters were just unlike-able but love Judith and Renie enough that I kept reading. Not one of my favorites in this series but a decent read if you're already into it.

    11. Betty on said:

      I enjoyed this Mary Daheim book. As usual it's an easy read (although I found this particular book a tad more tedious).

    12. Kelly on said:

      Cute, cozy, what I expected. I needed a lighter read and this was a good choice.

    13. Ellen Allmendinger on said:

      Entertaining. Was the first of the B&B series I've read and found it more entertaining then the Alpine series book I've read.

    14. Carol on said:

      Not even close to her other books the ending was vague and a disappointment. I hope her next book returns to the quality of the others.

    15. Sherry Beaubriand on said:

      Not my favorite book-thought it would be better than it was.

    16. Missi on said:

      Bad character development, plot jumps aroundobviously you need to read ALL the books before this one to have a cluet what I'd expect from a mystery novel.
