Just finished this book, the second, and unfortunately to the best of my knowledge the last in the A Bridge Club Mystery series. I loved the Bridge theme. I used to play years ago and this was so much fun to “play” vicariously with Emma and her friends.

The series premise is a widow moves to a new home to be closer to her best friend for support and gets involved in a local bridge club. Through her activities with the club she stumbles on murders which she solves. The character of Emma is very be

I really enjoyed this book! I know like NOTHING of Bridge!! I was afraid to start this because I don’t play Bridge but YOU DON’T HAVE TO PLAY BRIDGE TO ENJOY THIS BOOK!!!! There were some bridge tips at the end of the book…..because the main character had bought a History of Bridge book during the story --- I did learn some interesting things about the history of cards! The characters in this book were believable, fun and could be your best friends and have never thought about week long Bridge T ...more

Cute book but I'm not a bridge player and the clues for solving it at the end were equally as cryptic to me. I had little knowledge of the biblical references for solving the mystery. The 3 main characters were likable but almost every other character seemed over the top.

What a lot of fun! I was worried I might not like it but no worry! The characters were people I would love to be friends with and the story moved along at a good pace. Unusual and enjoyable I would suggest it to anyone! I've read both and can't wait for there to be another in this series!

pretty good but not as good as the books he writes under his other names. The Wanda Nell Culpepper books under his psuedonym Jimmie Ruth Evans are better.

This book was good, but I think all the bridge talk was a bit much for me. The mystery was good though. I'd maybe give it a 3.5 if I could.
