There are two more things I continue to enjoy about this series: the fact that Finsilver includes working dogs with unusual occupations in each book, and the group of senior citizens called the Silver Sentinels. Murder at the Mansion introduces readers to two beagles named Jack and Jill whose job most people would prefer to be neither seen nor heard. (No, I'm not spilling the beans!) As far as the Silver Sentinels go, these "old folks" are excellent when it comes to searching all sorts of dusty records and getting in touch with all their contacts to glean even more information. They're also top-notch babysitters and caring, generous friends. Finsilver's series is all the better for their presence.
Kelly Jackson is a strong main character, and I certainly appreciate the fact that she doesn't panic in an emergency-- nor does she wait for someone else to come to her rescue. My kind of gal!
Weighing in at just under two hundred pages, reading Murder at the Mansion was an enjoyable experience. It's certainly nice to read a lean, tight mystery without a lot of filler that still shows progress with character development. I'm looking forward to March 2017 when the third book Murder at the Fortune Teller's Table will be available.
It is a fascinating history and genealogy lesson as the author details the lineage of the house and family. It was fascinating to see how each character/group of characters went about finding answers using their own methods and resources they had. There were lighthearted moments interspersed with tragedy, and the happy feeling from dogs and kids that kept things on an even keel.
I look forward to more stories in this series. Obviously running a B&B or an Inn is a lot different from what we perceive from television! ;) I recommend reading the books in order so you get to know the characters better. The previous book and this book do not overlap, however many of the important characters are the same.
I hear she is writing a third book, can't wait. The books are written around a B&B, on the west coast, Janet writes in a way, I can feel the chill in the air, love her descriptive scenery........ Murder at the Mansion is a great story, whale watching, missing jewelry (can't believe who was behind that, HA HA) attempted murder and murder!!!! Lots of action. Great read.
Thanks Janet for such a good book.
Kelly Jackson is the manager of a resort B & B. She solves crimes with a group of savvy seniors, called the Silver Sentinels". The latest mystery the crew is investigating is the death of a guest. What looks like an accident turns out to be murder.
I love the writing style of Ms. Finsilver. Her description of the beauty of coastal California and the Redwood B & B makes me want to visit! Kelly Jackson is kind, smart and starting a relationship with a handsome colleague and the friendship among her and the Sentinels is charming and touching.
I'm looking forward to the next adventure!
is a person or persons who are killed in her novels and then the rest of the book is devoted to finding the killer. Classic! I don't need to read
about a bunch of blood and gore, or sexual content for it to be very entertaining. A good read! Another plus, no bad language :)
