Ik heb al meerdere boeken van deze serie gelezen en toch kunnen ze mij niet echt bekoren. Ik laat mij altijd weer verleiden door de leuke covers en titels. De verhalen zelf ... Ik kan niet echt zeggen wat mij stoort. Misschien is het de schrijfwijze? Ik vind ze soms moeilijk te volgen en dan lezen ze niet echt vlot.

I have an affinity for cozy mysteries. They generally aren't written in pursuit of a spot on the bestseller list; rather, cozies are written to give the reader a sense of comfort and calm (ironically, by way of murder).

My mom read cozies to escape her three eccentric young daughters and grumpy husband: one daughter, the artist, painted five-foot tall green flowers on the side of the freshly painted rental when she was four; the adventurous daughter asked which way north was, and was found by ne

Fed up after dealing with gossip columnist Dagmar Delacroix Chatsworth who was a pain during her stay at Hillside Manor, Bed and Breakfast owner Judith McGonigle Flynn decides to get away for a quick vacation. Her cousin Renie has a voucher for a free stay at the Bugler Ski Resort in Canada, so the two of them go there for some rest and relaxation. Judith and Renie love the suite they are staying in, but are less than thrilled to discover that Dagmar and her entourage are also staying there. Als ...more

This is a fun mystery series which focuses on one woman, Judith, who runs a B&B in Washington State, and very often her cousin, Renie. Since her new husband is a homicide detective, I guess it's easier to understand how she keeps getting involved in murder mysteries.

In this book, she has taken in a nationally-known gossip columnist, Dagmar Delacroix Chatsworth, and her entourage...the worst of which is her dog Rover who has never met a household item he doesn't want to shred or relieve himse

I learned a couple new words with this book. I always enjoy it when that happens. Plus, this was another "away from the B&B" storyline, so it was really fun.

Judith and Joe were back to being peckish with each other, which was a downer. I do like how it shows that past relationships really can mess up current ones if you don't deal with your baggage. Joe had a selfish ex-wife who cared little for anything other than her next drink, leaving him to fend for himself. Judith had a lazy ex-husband

This is the second book I've read in this series and this was a much earlier book. However, my problem with this book is the same as the first one. I don't particularly like the main characters. Judith Flynn and her cousin Renie are quirky but not particularly interesting. In this mystery, gossip columnist Dagmar Chatsworth and her entourage recently stayed at Judith's B&B. It was a bad experience for everyone. When Judith and her cousin take a busman's holiday to Canada to a resort, who do ...more

I really enjoy Dalheim's Bed and Breakfast mysteries. This is the second I have read. Judith does well putting up with her grouchy mother and then the gossip columnist in this book. Cousin Renie reminds me of some of my own loyal cousins. Although this book is part of a series, it does very well as a stand-alone novel. I can't wait to read the next book.

Not my favorite entry in the series but not the worst. Judith and Renie travel to Bugler and of course murder and mayhem ensue. I found some of the characters annoying and Judith's attitude at times annoyed me as well.

I picked this up for a summer pool read. It reminded me how I am so over cozy mysteries. This one was really stupid. I did find it amusing that the cousins spent so money on their "free" getaway. Now, that I could relate with.
I really love the adventures of Judith Flynn and cousin Renie Jones. This time a "free vacation" in a resort in Canada did not hold up as well. They are fun to read and I will still look for them

Gave this 3 stars, but the POV breaks in the book did annoy me. Most is written in 3rd person, limited to Judith, but some breaks do occur. I don't think this is typical of the author.

I really love her mystery books - I'm just not going to add every single one to my list. Read them if you like a good mystery!

Another festive story of cousins sharing an adventure ... even if one did not want said adventure. Cousins, friends, and crime solvers extraordinaire!

I liked this one better than the last one I read. Lots more to go in this series since this was published in 1995.

Cousins go on vacation and a person who had stayed at b&b is murdered.
Good, quick, entertaining.
Memorable dog and ex-jockey.

Warning, I find myself wanting to snack all of the time while reading these books. Her piggy characters are always stuffing their faces! Lol. Good book though.
