Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Cozy buffs who've yet to encounter Daheim's popular Pacific Northwest series will find this entertaining 24th installment (after 2007's Scots on the Rocks) an easy entry point. Judith McMonigle Flynn, who operates a bed-and-breakfast in the Seattle neighborhood of Heraldsgate Hill, has recently remarried her ex-husband, Joe Flynn. Her complicated personal life becomes even more so after the arrival of Joe's ex-wife, Vivian, with her trophy husband in tow. Vivian soon sends ripples through Heraldsgate Hill when she announces plans to build a huge condominium in the community. When the body of an unidentified man is found hanging from a tree behind Vivian's house, Judith reluctantly resumes her familiar role as amateur sleuth. Longtime fans will smile at cousin Renie's exasperation with the prevaricating Judith (These lengthy preludes to your adventures drive me nuts). Endearingly eccentric characters are a plus. (Aug.)

You are going to want to settle back in a comfy chair and keep reading once you begin Mary Daheim's Vi-Agra Falls, the newest addition to her popular Bed&Breakfast series. In any series a regular reader will have personal favorites. Vi-Agra Falls is most definitely in my top three!

Judith Flynn, owner of the Hillside Manor, her old family home turned B&B, has a problem. A big problem. Her husband Joe's former wife, Vivian, is back in the neighborhood stirring things up as only she can do. This time Vivian is not just an aggravation because of the relationship. She has a new young stud husband in tow and has mysteriously inherited mega-bucks from ....well...you have to read it. It's quite an amazing back story.

With her new wealth Vivian buys the house next door to hers and wants to tear down both her home and the neighboring house in the quiet, secluded cul de sac to build a high rise condo building. The entire neighborhood goes into an uproar of disbelief over the mere thought of the horrible impact the condo would have on their friendly little corner of the world.

On page 69, after throwing a large, wild, and very noisy outdoor party in her front yard, the inebriated party girl, Vivian, finds an unidentified dead body in her back yard! She naturally shows up at Judith's door seeking Joe's help and support only to pass out on the sofa. What could be more intriguing than stunned disbelief, confusion, a dead body, your spouse's unconscious ex-wife and a skeptical 911 operator all on one page? Fortunately, Judith and cousin Renie have had a little experience with dead bodies and solving crimes.

Judith soon finds the already interesting neighborhood filling with a crazy cast of characters, all of whom have their own agenda.

Format: Paperback
In Seattle, Judith McMonigle Flynn owns and manages the Hillside Manor bed-and-breakfast. However, domestic tranquility and bliss vanish rather quickly when Joe's former wife "Her" with the ample cleavage as always openly on display, nouveau riche Vivian, arrives.; Accompanying her is her much younger boy toy spouse, former minor league baseball player Billy "Blunder" Buss.

However the Heraldsgate Hill cul de sac residents including Judith, her cousin Remy, and Joe are horrifically stunned when Vivian announces plans to build an ostentatious condo complex amidst their homes. Adding to the growing fiasco is the arrival of Billy's brother Frankie and his wife Marva Lou who stay at the B&B. Frankie is irate that his late father left a fortune to his trophy wife Vivian. When a corpse is found behind Vivian's new home, Judith can't help herself. She starts investigating though she denies to Remy every sleuthing step of involvement she takes.

This long running cozy keeps its freshness with the interrelationships, many dysfunctional between the cast including the cousins. The story line is fast-paced from the onset as an eccentric horde invades the Heraldsgate Hill neighborhood causing havoc to the residents and amusement for the reader. The investigation is cleverly handled to add to the overall fun of exacerbation as Judith reconsiders her second time with Joe due to his eccentric people invading their of people.

Format: Hardcover
Bed-and-Breakfast owner Judith Flynn becomes embroiled in yet another murder case when an unidentified body shows up. Judith herself is about ready to commit murder when her husband Joe's ex-wife Vivian arrives at her house near the B&B and declares her intention of tearing down her home and the one next door in order to build a codomimium. Vivian's convoluted marital history and the various children from her many marriages add complications for Judith as she tries to solve the murder while disuading Vivian from her building plans. Judith's cousin Renie and her cranky mother Gertrude are on hand to lend their own brand of humor to this book, as are the usual array of guests at the B&B.

This is the first of this series and this author that I have read. I found it plodding, the characters particularly annoying and the murder motive predictable. There are too many quirky characters and the constant bickering between Judith and her mother, her cousin, her husband to be distracting and served to make all of them unlikeable rather than interesting. Maybe some family therapy is in order! I couldn't even stand to read to the end of it. I know when authors have many stories in a series that some of them can fall flat, but all the reviews I read made this one seem like it was worth reading. I might try another one in the future, but I'll have to find it at a yard sale.

This series is one of my two favorites. Every time I finish a book I can't wait until another one comes out. Judith and Renie are my two fav characters; they are likeable and very funny, this series is what all cozies should be. I've read some reviews refer to Renie as over the top but that what I love about her, let's face it no cozy book is very realistic. I read these types of books to be entertained and Mary Daheim entertains me well. I give all the books in this series 4 to 5 stars and recommend them to anyone who wants a enjoyable read.
