Murder is nothing to crow about…

Fall has fallen upon Judith McMonigle Flynn, leaving her Hillside Manor nearly devoid of guests. And what better cure for the off-season blahs than a brief bout of B&B sitting for a friend amid the quiet rustic splendor of secluded Chavez Island? Judith and cousin Renie both are more than ready for some relaxation. But their peace goes t

Things just keep going wrong for Judith and her funny cousin from the moment they arrive on the island. The residents are very secretive and are not the friendliest. A lot of weird things happen there in the month of September....It is still a shock to everyone when a customer at the B&B Judith is running, is found murdered minutes after her and her cousin had a disagreement with him. Judith and her cousin dig deep to solve the murder and discover the town has more secrets hidden. I loved ...more

It has been a couple of years since I ear one of the Bed and Breakfast Mystery series. I had forgotten just how enjoyable they are to read. If you want to just let yourself go and not think about the world today this is a really good read. Seeing, again, what is happening to Judith and her cousin, Renie, is always fun. The other reviews of this book give story details - I don't want to do that. I just want to let you know this is a good and fun read.

Cousins go to babysit a b&b on an island. One hits obnoxious guy over head with plate and next thing he is dead from another blow to head.
Pretty Good. Judith and Renie at Chavez Island.

Ok cozy mystery of a small island, a guest murdered and old secrets.

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

Judith Flynn and her cousin Renie go to one of the remote, beautiful Santa Lucia islands to help out a fellow bed-and-breakfast hostess. There are fewer than a dozen people living on the island, but someone, apparently, has murdered one of the guests. Judith's sympathetic manner and subtle questions unearth hidden secrets among the close-lipped residents.

I have a pile of these B&B books by Daheim in my bedroom. I enjoy them, but like most series, they begin to be predictable in many ways. I do love Cousin Renie though. Judith is just too nice for me most of the time.

I enjoyed this entry in the series. I'm a sucker for tying events from the past into a present day murder. This is one time where there were enough characters where things got confusing for me at times.

Another great book. The series is entertaining and each time she finds a dead body you just know she won't be able to leave it to the professionals.

One of the better books of the Bed and Breakfast series. It reminded me of a show I watched with murder on a remote Washington island.

I think this was the first "away" book I didn't care for in this series. These characters were odd and dull and mostly boring.

It was cute. It is what I call an "easy read." The story is not complicated, it has some humorous parts, the characters are not complex and they are likable.
