"Sly humor and domestic details...light and cozy fare." -- Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Mary Richardson Daheim is a Seattle native with a communications degree from the University of Washington. Realizing at an early age that getting published in books with real covers might elude her for years, she worked on daily newspapers and in public relations to help avoid her creditors. She lives in her hometown in a century-old house not unlike Hillside Manor, except for the body count. Daheim is also the author of the Alpine mystery series and the mother of three daughters.

I may try to read the next in the series, but I'm struggling to finish this one!

Looking forward to reading number three in the series and getting caught up to date.
Allan Krummenacker
The mystery kept me guessing although I admit to being a little bit bored with it.

In this book Judith McMonigle, madcap proprietor of a bed-and-breakfast, leaves her establishment to go on a vacation to Vancouver with her cousin and best friend, Renie. They go to the Clovia Hotel, a favorite with Renie and her husband, and while there they meet Marie, a girlhood friend who was a professional dancer and is now married to Max, a famous producer. Marie asks her old friends to join her and her friends who are all luminaries in the theater. Early in the book there is a murder, and Marie and her friends are the chief suspects. Judith, of course, feels that she is better qualified to solve the case than are the local police investigators. She and Renie follow several red herrings and pursue the pasts of each of their eight companions, with sometimes disastrous, sometimes hilarious results. This is a pleasant "cozy" for those who enjoy the genre.

I read "Just Desserts," and found it pretty interesting, and was looking forward to seeing what happened with Judith and Joe, her high school boyfriend from several years ago. While this book mentions Joe and there is some slight interaction, it seems to me to be long and rambling, and the "Sacred Eight" characters are just annoying. I may try to read the next in the series, but I'm struggling to finish this one! Have no doubts, I WANTED to enjoy this book, but it seems tedious and slow-moving.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This second book in the Bed and Breakfast series continues to build the characters of Judith and Renie. The story is a bit convoluted and is not possible to solve without cheating, but the development of the main characters is imporant as you continue to read the series. These first few books were good reads. What I call 'bubblegum' in that they are not War and Peace and they help to unwind from the daily stressors without being over-taxing. What I found important when I continued to read this series was it helped me get a 'feel' for the characters. Not being of their generation, each book helps you to understand why the character would put up with an overly abrasive mother, a condescending 'love of her life' husband and various and sundry other characters. Sometimes throughout the series I find myself frustrated with the lack of spine in the main character, but taking her in context helps me to understand that forcing my morals and traits on her would not be true to her generation and beliefs. So I let things slide and just enjoy the books for what they are. Nice cozy reading.

Format: Kindle Edition
Okay, so this is Nancy Drew for grown-ups. Judith and Renie are fun characters, and while half the fun is in trying to solve the puzzle, ( you don't have a chance here ), the other half is just in enjoying the relationship between the two women and the antics they get up to. Either you like them or you don't. As far as the mystery goes, in this one you are not given all the clues, or if you are they were too obscure for me, but that didn't really bother me. If you like the writer to be scrupulously fair then this isn't the book for you. Love Renie's food obsession Lots of food tips if you are ever in the Pacific Northwest, and if you have Renie' constitution. It is also fun, for me, to read about slightly older heroines who are not relegated to Knitting and rockers. Reminds me of Elizabeth Peters' Jacqueline Kirby series. I wish she'd written more of those, but Amelia Peabody is still around, so that's good. I enjoy Daheim's writing, both for the throw-away humor and the plotting, and I don't see why the previous reviewer was so upset about her relationship with Gertrude. Might as well say she ought to give Sweetums to an animal shelter. Judith just accepts what is, and so should the reader. This is Daheim's world, and she can populate it any way she likes. Recommended.

This is the second book I have read by this author. I have found it to be light and quick reading, something I want at times after heavier reading.

Sometimes I feel that I get lost with so many 'red herrings' (i.e. so many characters), and the mother of the B & B owner is beyond belief with her hateful, mean spirited approach to life. Having said that, though, as I age, I can see how she has reached the point where that is basically her only entertainment and way of establishing that she is still alive and can at least control something...even if it is just being a "character".

Mary Daheim's Bed and Breakfast mysteries are always enjoyable. Confirmed with this novel. Her characters are delightful. Lighthearted, enjoyable entertainment.
