Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Early in Daheim's sprightly 28th cozy featuring Seattle B and B innkeeper Judith McMonigle Flynn (after 2012's The Wurst Is Yet to Come), an old friend of Judith's, Ruby Tooms, arrives at Hillside Manor. Ruby wants Judith's husband, retired cop Joe Flynn, to help find the person who murdered her mother, Opal, years earlier, before DNA testing. Judith, whose admirers created a Web site celebrating her detective adventures, has vowed to stay away from criminal investigations in order to concentrate on her family and her business, but she soon becomes involved in the search for Opal's killer. As usual, Judith's best friend, Renie Jones, lends a hand. Series fans will relish the author's trademark humor (e.g., I hate it when people get mixed up and think the acronym for Female Amateur Sleuth Tracking Offenders isn't FASTO, but FATSO ). Agent: Maureen Moran, Maureen Moran Agency. (July)

From the Back Cover

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.


More About the Author

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.

Customer Reviews

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.

As with all of Mary Daheim books, I really love GONE WITH THE WIN. This book is one of the best books with cousins Judith, Renie, Judith's neighbors, Arlene, and her husband Carl Rankers Mary has brought back just about all the folks the cousins have known who visit Hillside Manor, Judith's B&B in this book. Even "Herself", Vivian, the EX-wife of Judith's husband Joe is in the book via the telephone. Judith's mother, Gertrude is her old Sassy self. I think Gertrude is sharper than she lets on she just likes to act mean to Joe and Judith for the fun of it.

Judith has decided to quit Sleuthing until Ruby Tooms wants Judith to find out who killed Ruby's mother. It seems Joe's former Police partner, Woody Price's first homicide assignment was Ruby Tooms' mother's murder. Of course, Joe, Renie, and Judith end up trying to solve the murder. Ruby Tooms grew up in the Judith's old neighborhood where her mother was murdered.

Readers will enjoy Judith and Renie visiting Judith's old Neighborhood where Judith and her first husband, Dan, owned a Bar Meat and Mingle. The cousins visit the local Race Track, the Meat Market, the local restaurant, Bars and meet a few questionable
characters before they almost get themselves killed.

As with all Mary Daheims' Books you will be reading and laugh at an unexpected sentence. Mary's books make you feel you are a part of the family.. I read for enjoyment and NOT LIKE SOME PEOPLE NIT-PICK.

Mary Dahiem writes clever and entertaining stories about the occupants of her books. This one is just hot off the presses and has kept me turning pages. Her plots seem logical when revealed, but are worrisome until they appear. She has not lost her touch, and I am liking the fast pace of this book. You will like it too!

Innkeeper Judith McMonigle Flynn has vowed to never find a dead body again or get involved in any investigation so when Ruby Tooms, a barmaid she met at Oktoberfest in Little Bavaria, shows up at Hillside Manor demanding that she use her amateur sleuthing skills to find out who killed Ruby's mother fifteen years ago, Flynn is ready to say no. Normally her husband Joe would agree but as it turns out this particular cold case was his former police partner Woody Price's first murder investigation so Joe is eager to help solve the case and Judith is once again a reluctant sleuth. Together they join Ruby, Judith's cousin Renie, and others in the pursuit of a long-ago killer that leads them to the truth of what happened and ultimately, to the killer.

This series isn't my favorite in the cozy mystery genre because I find the regular characters a little annoying (especially Judith's mother) and there were a lot of others to keep track of, but the storyline involving a cold case is interesting and has enough humor mixed in making it a good choice to take along to the beach or on vacation for an light and entertaining read. I think fans of the author and series will welcome this latest adventure of Judith and Joe.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

I was excited to learn of Mary Daheim's latest release,"Gone With the Win". Judith McMonigle Flynn, her cousin Renie and the rest of the witty cast of characters in the Bed and Breakfast Mysteries are back. Gertrude never misses a beat as we begin with her usual tirade to her son-in-law Joe or as she refers to him "Lunkhead". It is a hilarious ride as Judith takes on an old mystery from the past.

Read and discover along with Judith and her reluctant cousin as the try to solve a mystery case so cold it resides in the deep freeze until they uncover evidence that begins the thaw!

This is a charming story that will have you rooting for the answer and laughing every step of the way.

Don't miss this and all of the Bed and Breakfast Mysteries. Mary Daheim continues to score with this tale!

Loved it!

I borrowed this book from the public library and I am very glad I didn't pay money for it. This is my first (and last) time reading this author and I honestly don't get why she gets so many good reviews. She has to be one of the worst writers I have ever had the misfortune to read. The dialog is contrived and unrealistic; the constant descriptions of food planning and preparation are tiresome; there are way too many characters; and the author throws too many red herrings into the mystery and not enough actual clues. When the protagonist finally reveals the murderer, all I could do was scratch my head and think, "How the heck did she come up with that?" The plot was just muddy and rambling. I would be very surprised if this author uses an outline.

Have enjoyed the other Daheim books (both series) but this one was a disappointment. Renie and Gertrude are no longer funny, their conversations take away from the story and start to become annoying. I found the plot was all over the place and really little resolution with the main characters at the end. Sorry to see this series go this way. Was a series I always looked forward to.
