Judith run's a lovely bed and breakfest, but some how always get's involved in murders some how. But with the help of her cousin Renie and her cop husband joe they always figure it out in the end.

This time her B&B is over run with mobsters. And people that seem nice but arn't. Also while all this is going on her son Mike is about to have a baby and she has to deal with her old mother, who is a bit of a pain in the but.

A hit man from the mod gets killed, then a FBI agent comes and thinks tha
Didn't one of the previous books in this series have the housekeeper smoking as well? Maybe it was a different book, but I could have sworn it was this series. I remember being taken aback by it, especially when she stated the Bible said nothing about smoking, just drinking.

Also, Judith used to serve rum punch in the summer, but now says she never serves liquor? Um, okay...

I have to say, this has been one of my favorite books of the series. The mysteries were woven together very well. The hijin
Nothing Like A Good Book!!!!
One of Dahdim's better bed and breakfast mysteries.
The new guests at Judith Flynn's bed and breakfast seem rather odd--for one thing, some of them seem to be previously acquainted, although none of them will admit it. But the last thing that Judith expects is for the Mob to drop by. No, actually, the last thing she expects is for an FBI man to arrive and claim that Judith's elderly mother was a concentration camp guard!
I read this book after my husband did and if you like a good mystery this was an awesome book! I really would like to read more of her books, but our Library is very limited! If anyone can tell me where I can find the rest of her books to buy or check out that would be awesome!
#14 in the bed-and-breakfast mystery series with Seattle inn keeper Judith Flynn and her cousin Renie Jones. This one has a cast of characters with guests and neighbors, murder, and confusing identities as she works through the various clues to help solve what happened.
I found a bunch of these B&B mysteries at my local used bookstore, so I keep dipping into them instead of Bill Bryson's book. I am reading BB's book, but these keep me entertained instead of challenging my feeble brain cells.
Another good read from Mary Daheim. I like these cases that involve the B&B. I especially liked that there was more than one murder in this one.
I love the locked in a house full of murder suspects whodunnit, and this one is a fun one- through in the mafia and call it jenja!

Really liked this one. Kept me on my toes with all the murders. the mafia in the bed & breakfast!! well thought out story.

Didn't bother to finish. Probably shouldn't have started with book 14
Not as good as the last two books. Kind of hit and miss with this author.
Great book.
