    1. Carol Fillmore on said:

      It was an okay read. Had issues with the book. Found the pace rushed, almost frantic at times. Why did the author feel the need to write this way? It detracted from the overall story which was good. Was she going after a madcap series of events to tell this story? If so, this didn't work for me.Another issue was characterization. The characters fell a bit flat and they often felt like stereotypes, even cartoonish. This was particularly noticeable in the character Clive, who happens to be a South [...]

      I'm trying to read this series in order, and I found a bunch in my local bookstore's used book area. I knew who the murder was early on, and the book seemed to wander around a lot before the characters figured it out too, so not a favorite of the series. I'll see how I like the next couple before committing myself to the rest.

      I have been reading this series and I just can't any more. They are so predicable and very early on. I also am disappointed in her lack of research into police procedures. By the time she gets finished 'investigating' none of her evidence is usable. It truly is a fiction series even down to procedures.

      This book reminded me of a scooby-doo mystery! Those meddeling kids! Lol

      Of all the Bed and Breakfast Mysteries that I have read and loved, this one was the best.

      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 [...]

      This book took place at the cabin in Washington, which reminds me very much of the cabin we have in Washington, so this book was a favorite. In fact, our cabin in Washington is almost exactly where her fictional cabin is probably located (based on "name changed" locations and sights.) The plot was engaging, although somewhat annoying at times. I figured out the "who dunnit" for this book as well. I can't figure out if I'm just getting better at choosing the villain, or if these past few books ha [...]

      Good grief. Repose. Again. Three times in one chapter!I'm forever laughing at place and people names that authors come up with. A police officer named Abbott N Costello? Really? I know the cops are usually bumbling idiots in cozy mysteriesbut seriously?I like the mysteries that take place away from the B&B much more than the ones that take place AT the B&B. I also like when all the facts and pieces to solve the mystery are there all along, but I don't quite get 2+2 to equal 4. Then again [...]

      Cousins Judith Flynn and Renie Jones go to clean out the family's old cabin and soon find the artist who lives next door has been murdered. One--or maybe two--missing paintings, a household of unruly children, an art collector, an agent, more artists--the plot thickens in a big way, but Judith's logical mind finds a way through the morass, though she's impeded by the two incompetent deputies who've been assigned tot he case.

      A weekend of maintenance for the girls up at the family cabin by the lake. The painter who lives in the next cabin gets murdered. Once again its up to Judith and Renie to find out what happened while almost getting themselves killed.

    11. Glenn Harris on said:

      Bed and breakfast hostess Judith McMonigle and her intrepid cousin Renie are fixing up the family cabin when an artist who lives down the road is murdered. Of course they find themselves caught up in the middle of the investigation.

    12. Kim on said:

      I love that these stories are adventures with two cousins. Love my cousins! This one took place at the family cabin. I don't have one of those, but I have awesome cousins!

      I liked it ,I like most of the bed and breakfast mysteries, but so far my favorite is Scots on the Rocks.

    14. Michele on said:

      I liked it, I like the series did not occur at the B & B and I kept getting confused with the location may just be me, but I still enjoyed the book!
