From USA Today bestselling authorMary Daheim comes her latestBed-and-Breakfast mystery featuringinnkeeper and reluctant sleuth Judith McMonigle Flynn, who is surprised when someone from her past comes knockingwith a case so cold it's practically frozen . . .
Gone with the Win
Flynn has vowed never ever to find a dead body again (at least not for a while). But despite warnings from Cousin Renie, she can't turn down a suspicious guest reservation from Mary Smith of New York City. There must be many real Mary Smiths, especially in a place as big as NYC. . . .
Unfortunately, Judith already knows the woman who shows up at Hillside Manor. She's none other than Ruby Tooms, the world-weary barmaid the cousins met at Oktoberfest in Little Bavaria. Fearing that Judith wouldn't accept her reservation if she used her real name, Ruby arrives with some unexpected baggage—a cold case she dumps on Hillside Manor's Persian carpet. Ruby's mother was strangled after she divorced Jimmy Tooms, Ruby's father. Jimmy was in the clear, behind bars at the time for stealing Judith's wallet when Dan McMonigle's ill-fated Meat & Mingle Café went bust. Ruby wants to know if Judith can use her sleuthing skills to finger a murderer from fifteen years ago.
Judith is about to say no when her husband, Joe Flynn, tells her that the homicide case was his former partner and old pal Woody Price's first murder investigation. Now the game is afoot, and for once Joe is more than willing to help his wife turn a cold case into a hot chase in pursuit of a long-ago killer.
Good plot, good writing and the usual lovable characters and wacky situations plus danger.
Judith McMonigle Flynn, her cousin Renie and the rest of the witty cast of characters in the Bed and Breakfast Mysteries are back.
I found the plot was all over the place and really little resolution with the main characters at the end.

The book cover suggested a book similar to the Dick Francis books and it was not. I was disappointed.Published 2 months ago by Gail R. Thomas
I love this series. My only critique is that the story got rushed in the last few pages.Published 2 months ago by O. Lamkin
It (the story) just wasn't my cup of tea. I may buy another of her books, but I will look carefully at the synopsis before I do so.Published 2 months ago by Delores
