Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The twenty-seventh title in this series finds Judy and her cousin Renie at a Washington State Bed and Breakfast association booth in Little Bavaria during Oktoberfest. When festival founder Franz Wessler’s father, Dietrich, apparently dies in the middle of an oompah-band reception, amateur sleuth Judith is asked by the police to help with the investigation. While the many fans of the series and characters will enjoy this entry, the bickering between cousins grows a bit wearisome, and the many characters with similar names make the plot harder to follow than is typical from Daheim. For series fans. --Amy Alessio --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Hillside Manor is the perfect B&B for a few days of R&R. Okay, so it features the occasional corpse or two. But is a small (if growing) body count any reason for the state to yank Judith McMonigle Flynn's innkeeper's license?

Exhausted from being hassled by the state B&B association's meddling critics, Judith warily accepts an assignment manning an Oktoberfest booth in the mountain aerie of Little Bavaria. With reluctant cousin Renie in tow, she hopes to win some allies, solicit new guests, and keep her inn prosperous. The last thing she needs is another homicide to sully her reputation.

But before the beer begins flowing, Judith finds a body—right in the middle of an oompah band and a herd of German polka dancers. Before she can say lederhosen, the local police chief has her on the case.

Caught between a wurst and a hard place, Judith finally agrees, but only if Renie poses as the sleuth. . . .

I used to love this series, but this book is the worst one! Judith and Renie spend the majority of the book bickering. Judith has evolved into a character I dislike immensely and Renie is downright annoying. That being said, I found the plot thin at best with the characters shallow. It was quite a chore to finish this book.
The story itself is very thin, there is no redeeming quality at all to the book.

Yikes! What has happened to this series? I completely agree with a previous reviewer's comments about Serena. She was always a little prickly but now the character is just awful. And as for the police chief asking Judith's help, oh, please! As terrible as this was, the last Emma Lord was really wonderful. Can't both series be at least enjoyable?

I was so excited to read the latest book in is series. It's been a while since the last one. I was a bit disappointed, though. There seemed to be an inordinate amount of emphasis on Serena's snarkiness and the humor was contrived. Somehow it didn't come off nearly as well as the previous B&B mysteries. I used to prefer the Judith character so much more than the Emma Lord character in the Alpine series. Now, I' m not so sure. Renie needs to back off a little. She's become way too combative, even with Judith. There's enough nastiness in the character of Judith's mother, who is funny, but not so much in the Renie character.

I have always loved this series and looked forward to reading this one....What a dispointment....First of all, what police chief would push an inn keeper to solve his case for him....This just would never happen....and another thing, Little Bavaria is supposed to be just a little town, but for some reason, a lot of Judith's fellow inn keepers happened to be from there....not one, but several....Really!!! And I got lost in all the German....But my biggest complaint is Serina....Rennie was always over the top but in this book, she is down right ridiculous and annoying ....Being that sassy all the time, isn't the least bit funny...its more annoying than anything else...I found myself telling her to shut up, more than once....
All in all, this book was a huge disapointment and I doubt I will be putting myself through reading anymore by her....

I have read and loved every Daheim Bed and Breakfast mystery until the last two or three and I was disappointed in those last ones. This one, however, is by far the worst I've read. Judith has lost her innkeeper charm and sense of fun and is easily annoyed when once she was the soul of patience and loved people as a whole. She has developed a sharp tongue and is quick to use it. Judith seems almost afraid of her second husband,Joe, who has turned very critical and sometimes just mean. There was also a good deal more about her worthless first husband since it's mentioned throughout the book rather than just summed up near the beginning. That got very tedious to slog through and I just skipped that content after awhile.

Judith's cousin Renie used to be really fun to read about with snappy, funny dialog and an unusual but very loving relationship with her husband, Bill. Now it seems as though she just puts up with him as a basically useless person she happens to live with. Renie's dialog has turned acid and insulting even to Judith and she has become very selfish with a very unpleasant sense of entitlement. Judith and Renie used to be the best of friends and so fun to read about, but now they constantly snipe at each other and can be cruel.

The "plot" was very weak and I had trouble getting up enough interest to finish it. I kept breaking off and reading other books by different (and far better) authors. What was Daheim thinking? This is beyond an author's simply being bored with her characters: This is an author who has come to thoroughly dislike her characters. Possibly Daheim has come to think that she needs to write "edgier" books to appeal to a new readership. She's dead wrong.

This is absolutely the worst in this series---Serena is made out to look like an idiot with Judith's continually impatient remarks about her. I wanted to stop reading the book it got so tiresome. Mary Daheim better regroup and show a little respect Serena or this will be the last book I read in this series. bh

What a dissapointment. I could not get past the first few pages. The characters' relationships are so dysfunctional that I had no desire to read any further. Awful!

I have read many of Daheim's books. Most are a quick fun read. This reads like she was just grinding another one out. The plot is thin and doesn't hang together. There are too many characters and it's just plain boring. A Very disappointing book.
