4.0 out of 5 stars Laughs, Love, and Loopy characters!
Against the backdrop of the small town of Melnik, Nebraska (that has very poor phone reception except for in a few very odd spots), is the murder of Sven Gunderson the town's miser, crank, and terrifying to small children, recluse.
Bonnie Simpson, the beige-wearing curator of the Melnik Historical Society Museum which is home to Maxie - the world's largest field...

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute romance and fun mystery.
This is a fun little book. It has some really quirky characters that aren't alway believable but fun none the less. If you're looking for a heavy mystery this isn't it. If you like a fun mystery with no gore along with a fairy tale romance, then read this book.

This review is from: Fright At the Museum (The Historical Society Murders) (Kindle Edition)
Against the backdrop of the small town of Melnik, Nebraska (that has very poor phone reception except for in a few very odd spots), is the murder of Sven Gunderson the town's miser, crank, and terrifying to small children, recluse.
Bonnie Simpson, the beige-wearing curator of the Melnik Historical Society Museum which is home to Maxie - the world's largest field mouse and highlight of the town, was there at the Museum when the storm hit, the car crashed, and the discovery of Sven came about.
Enter Joe Manning, new to the town and with killer dimples, who happens to be the recluse's son. Joe inherits a lot more than he bargained for than just the dilapidated monstrosity of a house. It's a house that has secrets and more than its fair share of dust and cobwebs. And bats.
Sit back and enjoy the ride of Mary's extremely humorous, adventurous, and even romantic tale, of a murder mystery brimming with interesting and quirky characters!

This is, as another reviewer has stated, as much a romance as it is a mystery, but it has a sweetness about that is occasionally cloying but generally pleasant.

A mystery to solve, suspense ... and a touch of romance as well - if only the couple could stop being so dense!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nebraska is the place to be, November 2, 2012

Melnik, Nebraska. Home of Maxie the Mouse, the largest field mouse in the world. Apparently. At least the residents of this small town, the Historical Society, and the curator of their own small museum thinks.

But what happens when dead bodies appear? Mayhem, of course! And a mystery that has as many twists and turns as a mouse's trail. :) Romance, mystery, and comedy. A Mary Nealy classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars another cute romantic mystery, July 26, 2012

This review is from: Fright At the Museum (The Historical Society Murders) (Kindle Edition)
This is the second book in the series, following Bury the Lead (Historical Society Murders). Bonnie Simpson was introduced in the first book but she is front and center in this book, along with her love interest Joe. The main characters started out on a more antagonistic note but then later blossomed into a cute love. It was so sweet how Joe liked Bonnie in all of her "beige glory"---the author's humor just makes me laugh, although it might not appeal to everyone. Even just reading the dedication before the story began had me cracking up. As a side note, the main characters from the first book, Nick and Carrie, make brief appearances in this story---which was a pleasant addition because we see they are married and Carrie still retains her mouse phobia. I would recommend reading the first book in the series just so readers understand the dynamics and personalities of this loopy but lovable town. If you like Ms. Nealy's humor, I recommend her Christian historical romances written as Mary Connealy, funny stuff!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ho-Hum Romance Disguised as Mystery, July 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fright At the Museum (The Historical Society Murders) (Kindle Edition)
This book has been written a thousand times by a thousand authors. The Museum hardly figures in most of it, for reasons that become obvious when you read the first chapter. There is the requisite by-the-numbers star-crossed romance that is telegraphed by the third page, and the usual roster of stereotyped small town characters. If you like romances, you can probably ignore the mystery and enjoy this.
