There’s snow place like homicide

The pay’s good, the scenery’s to die for—but they never figured there’d be a killer cooking up mischief among this innocuous stew of corpor

Boggles the mind and defies any kind of logic or rational thinking.

Mary Daheim’s “Bed and Breakfast” mysteries always seem like more restrained West Coast versions of the kind of comedy mysteries that Joan Hess writes. There are almost always memorable characters but they are never quite as exaggerated as those in Hess’ novels. There are almost always comic situations, but they are more like the chuckles of “The Andy Griffith Show” than the outrageous guffaws of “Mama’s Family.” In short, there are times in Hess’ delightful works that I have to consciously susp ...more

Better than the last book, that's for sure! I didn't see any of this coming, although I should have. This book humorously and sometimes bumblingly describes why I refuse to consider management. Dumb dumb dumb people who don't care about anything but wielding power and making money. Blech!

I was beginning to feel like someone made a new "Clue" movie starring Judith and Renie!

I am a huge fan of this series and this is one of my favorites. I can't help but laugh out loud at some of the crazy and zany situations the cousins get caught up in. I love the cast of characters in this book.

An entertaining little mystery story with lots of dead bodies.

Excellant storyline; kept good pace! I dont't like the main charectors husband--he is self-involved-YUK!

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

This was a pleasant murder mystery in the Angela Lansbury, Murder She Wrote vein. I certainly won't keep this book nor will I seek out other books by this author. Should I come across another Mary Daheim novel in a hand-my-down book bag, however, I won't hesitate to give it a go. The kind of book that's nice when you want to lighten things up a bit.

Oh yeah. One more thing. On page 60, the character Renie tells her cousin, "Quite a few of the guys who are employed at lower management levels in co

Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn. When Judith and her cousin venture off to nearby Mountain Goat Lodge to feed and entertain a group of phone company big shots on retreat, the attending executives begin taking permanent vacations, one by one.
I gave up on page 177! With the beginning of almost every chapter, one more of the Board members was murdered ---this time one was shoved out the window – (of a 2nd floor) snow was so deep that it held him up as a ledge ---he froze to death and when they opened

Just finished Snow Place to Die (Bed and Breakfast #13) by Mary Daheim. It takes place at Goat Mountain Lodge where murder and mayhem reign. Two cousins cater and organize a company function that gets extremely complicated with murders happening. Mary Daheim is from my area so enjoyed her vivid descriptions of mountain settings.

Classic locked in the old house mystery, except this is snowed in at a lodge. With quite a few more bodies than normal it kind of reminded me of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. Judith and Renie do a good job sleuthing when they get snowed in at the lodge with a corporate team there for a retreat.

Judith finds the first body outside the lodge and then the bodies just keep piling up. Will the blizzard stop so that they can get out of the lodge alive. while stranded the girls decide the only thing to do is to solve the puzzle and find out who was murdering the phone company's executives.

I have a pile of these mysteries by Mary Daheim near my bed - all from the used books side of my bookstore. Can you tell I've decided to read lots of mysteries I have in my TBR pile and move 'em outta here?

I liked this one a bit more than some of her other B&B mysteries, although the body count was really rising fast most of the book. I always get hungry and very thirsty (for more than water) reading these books.

This installment isn't as zany as others in Mary Daheim's Bed-and-Breakfast series. It's an absorbing story with a classic setup: a small group of people trapped in a remote location. Daheim, as always, creates distinct characters and an intricate plot that Judith Flynn, with help from her cousin, Renie, methodically unravels to solve multiple murders. Very enjoyable.

This is a cozy mystery series centered on a woman who runs a bed-and-breakfast. I don't know how many I have read but several, for sure. I had to force myself to finish this one. I honestly began to surmise, about a quarter of the way into it, that it wasn't even written by the same author as the others I'd read. Might try another one. You never know.

I have read so many of Mary Daheim's B&B mystery series that I feel like i know the cousins. There were a few plot items that I thought quite improbable, but all in all, it was an enjoyable read and I will read more of her books. Judith and Renie are people I know well.
Ten Little Indians meets Mad Men. Very very readable because Judith and Renie are awesome together, spoiled only by lag towards the 3/4 mark and a frankly unnecessary last four pages. No one cares what Joe thinks, Judith. Now go call your cousin.

More Judith McMonigle Flynn and her crazy cozy Renie are always beset by murders. Judith is in trouble with the Bed and Breakfast group since she so often has dead bodies in the proximity of her B&B. This is a great cozy read. Good characters - male and female, and puzzles to solve.

Solid writing, as usual, and I loved the characterizations of the corporate world, and the way some people dismiss a "nobody" thinking those with a corporate title are more than.

Loved reading about winter and snow in the middle of summer when it's so hot! Good mystery with wider plot/themes. Ended up a bit up in the air for my tastes.
