NO SPOILERS. OOoooo. I really enjoyed this entertaining pleasant mystery featuring cardiologist-detective Dr. Fenimore who goes to Prague, Czechoslovakia -- I liked this one even more than the first.

This is the fourth in the series and only the second one I've read, but I didn't notice any negatives to skipping to number 4 right after number 1. The characters whom readers met in the first of the series return: his karate practicing, former Navy seal nurse/office secretary Mrs. Doyle, his sweethe

It was a light enough cozy mystery, but I didn't find the characters entirely engaging and the plot was a stretch. I'm able to suspend disbelief well enough for this type of novel but this story had too many jumps in it; too many places where things "neatly" happened to fix problems. I can't say much more without spoilers. I don't think I'll be reading any others in this series.

The Doctor Dines in Prague is the fourth in a series of cozy mysteries by Robin Hathaway. They star Dr. Andrew Fenimore, a Philadelphia physician who still makes house calls. In this outing, Fenimore becomes concerned about his Czech cousin and her family. He has been in the habit of calling Anna every week to check on her and her husband, Vlasta. Vlasta suffers from angina and Fenimore had been making plans to bring the family to Philadelphia so Vlasta could have some much-needed surgery at a t

I read this book when I was trapped in a cabin with no other reading material. I kept putting it down in dissatisfaction, but picking it up due to lack of other choices. The plot is incredibly unrealistic and although having read the book to completion, I certainly was not pleased with the experience.
#4 in the Dr. Fenimore series. The setting in the Czech Republic makes an interesting addition to this charming series about a Philadelphia based doctor.

Dr. Andrew Fenimore ventures to the Czech Republic after trying to phone his cousin Anna for two weeks without success. Fenimore discovers that Anna and her husband have been kidnapped. Hiding in their apartment is the couple's young daughter Marie. Fenimore decides to get Marie to safety in America. Anna's colleague Ilsa Tanacek offers to help
This was an interesting little mystery taking place in Prague. It had interesting description about the city and its history that I enjoyed.
Did not have much to it for me. Finished reading it because I started it and had read the others by Robin Hathaway.
Read for book club trip to Prague. Cute mystery and fun to get the setting of the city before our travels.
Certainly not Agatha Christie but quick moving and interesting characters. I would definitely read another.
That description is not correct!
