      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 [...]

      the library has some "new" old Mary Daheim books! Another fun adventure with Judith & Renie

    3. Audrey on said:

      I know I've read many entries in this series that have felt fresh even though Daheim takes exactly one situational plot (guests trapped in a house, someone dies) and just keeps re-doing it. But this was not fresh. It was chorus #317 of No One Cares What Joe Thinks, Judith along with a wtf reveal. Seriously. 200 pages in, Judith turns into SuperSleuth but then needs all remaining 50 pages to explain how and why to Renie. Keep on explaining, Jude-girl. I'm still not with you. Also, if you set up y [...]

      I liked this one best of all so far. I think Judith should hand off the reins to the B&B to someone else and trot the globe solving mysteries. She is much more fun when NOT at home!Aside from some weird typos and a few dreaded uses of the word "repose" early on, this book was good. Twists and turns and slightly unexpected relations coupled with a hysterical bout of greedy, feuding relatives made this book fun. Everyone has the cooky extended family that are brash and annoying and fight like [...]

      I hadn't read a Mary Daheim book in a long time, and I found it a pure joy. It was just what I needed--good characters, an interesting mystery, odd relatives, and normal everyday "glitches" in life. I really appreciated the family tree at the front of the book and had to refer to it quite often until I got to know the characters. I also appreciated minimal references to past books/mysteries when I read a book out of sequence.

      Judith and Renie are at it again. This time we get to meet their dysfunctional extended family. And we thought the moms were batty! The cousins are enlisted to cater a birthday party for eccentric Uncle Boo at his mansion in a ritzy neighborhood. Murder and mayhem ensue, the motley crew is held prisoner by bad weather and Judith gets the opportunity to solve not just one, but two murders! I couldn't figure it out till the very end

      A locked-door mystery. Judith and Renie reluctantly agree to cater their distant relatives' Uncle Boo's birthday party dinner. At the Major Manor, Boo is murdered in the den, which is locked from the inside. In the midst of a bad ice storm, the family members - and the murderer - are stuck at the scene of the crime.

      I really enjoyed this one. The story was good, loved the whole trapped in the house scenario. Although it wasn't really a part of the story I really loved the famiy tree at the beginning of the book, I like knowing exactly how old Judith and everyone else is, I've always tried to ballpark it in my head based on other things in the other books.

      Judith Flynn and her cousin Renie agree to cater a birthday party for immensely rich Bruno Major, who is the brother-in-law of their detested aunt-by-marriage Toadie. All of Toadie's obnoxious relatives are there, and the cousins are eager to leave, until a dead body and an ice storm strand them with the uncongenial company, with nothing to do but sleuth.

      Another episode in the continuing adventures of bed and breakfast proprietor Judith McMonigle Flynn and her cousin Renie. This time they are catering a birthday party for some particularly unpleasant relatives -- and of course before it's over there is a murder to be solved.

    11. Rebecca on said:

      My rating is more like 2.5 on this one. The point of view annoyed me. The breaking point of view, I mean.

    12. Sallie on said:

      Some of Daheim's earlier books (mysteries) seemed a bit too predictable, but the last few have kept me guessing until the end.

    13. Diane Falvey on said:

      Once again I really enjoyed this addition to the Bed & Breakfast Mystery series. The characters continue to amuse and they never seem to become boring.

    14. Kim on said:

      These cousins are a hoot! And they have crazy family too. Yet, it makes mine seem a bit less crazy. All good!
