    1. I wanted to love this little modern but thirties themed edition of the Bed and Breakfast series but this just didn t do it for me The attempt to evoke the feel of The Thin Man era was ham handed and a few of the main characters are just unlikable Decidedly not my cup of tea.


    2. Being an avid fan of the Alpine series, I looked for something else by this authorIt is a decent read, but if you are gonna have a cruise ship on the cover, I expect to be on the boat than one dayIt seemed as if she was going out of her way to show she knows San FranciscoAlso there were so many characters that you had to keep track of, that it lead to mass confusion and you were glad that the body count helped limit the castAt the end, the killer came out of left field mainly because it was so [...]


    3. What a bummer A free cruise turns to murder and mayhem in this story With a throwback to the Art Deco period, there is a cast of characters straight out of an old detective movie The only character missing was a gangster I kept waiting for one character to get fingered, but alas, he was innocent Oh well Cute story, but rather slow paced and too many characters with too many motives for me to figure it out All I can say is that I hope poor Judith gets a really nice anniversary trip with her hubby [...]


    4. I don t like books that need to have a cast of characters at the beginning It makes the book too complicated After reading the book, I realized that my first thoughts about the book were correct and it was too complicated to be interesting and enjoyable.


    5. This was a great B B mystery from Daheim As delightful as Judith and Renie are, it s always the supporting characters that make or break the story These were fabulous especially Rhoda Rick I hope they make a return appearance at some point in the future



    6. This book was set in Washington State, but one character was from the South Apparently the only research the author did about the South was watching Gone With the Wind She actually had the character of course her name was Dixie say, Heavens to Betsy HEAVENS TO BETSY Just stop.


    7. Once a cozy mystery becomes a series instead of a stand alone novel, the situations become increasingly implausible and one must muster up plenty of suspended disbelief to make them work Mary s Daheim s mysteries whether in the Alpine or Bed n Breakfast series are no exception to this rule, but they are clever and entertaining nonetheless In Dead Man Docking, Judith is drafted to go on a cruise with her cousin Ronnie short for Veronica when said cousin is trying to hang onto her cruise line pub [...]


    8. Bed and Breakfast owner Judith McMonigle Flynn badly needs a vacation and when her cousin Serena Renie is invited to go on a free 1930 s themed cruise, Judith agrees to go along But murder has a habit of finding Judith and before the cruise can even get underway, the body of their host, Magglio Cruz, is found stuffed in a piano With nothing else to do until their ship sails, Judith and Renie, along with the help of fellow passengers Rick and Rhoda St George, decide to investigate the murder They [...]

    10. 21 in the bed breakfast mystery series with Judith Flynn and her cousin Renie Jones Normally set in Seattle, this one is set San Francisco as Judith is accompanying Renie on a cruise as special guests of the owner Before the cruise can start, the owner is murdered than soon after two others Instead of a much needed vacation, Judith finds herself in the middle of a multiple murder investigation Judith and Renie find themselves working with another couple who also solve crimes There are many possi [...]


    11. When Renie Jones is offered a free cruise and her husband is unable go make it, she invites her cousin Judith Flynn They fly to San Francisco, where the opening night gala ends in disaster Stuck ashore, Judith investigates, but this time the cousins have competition from a husband and wife team, Rick and Rhoda St George, who seem to be channeling the famed thirties pair, Nick and Nora Charles.


    12. I love this series Judith is worn out and Renie insist that Judith join her on a cruise when Bill can t due to issues with one of his patients Judith and Renie find themselves involved with seeking answers after a series of murders among people associated with the Cruise Plenty of action and guessing with the two amateur sleuths and others A thirties theme and some added helping hand add an extra intrigue to the story.


    13. This was a pretty standard Mary Daheim mystery Judith her cousin Renie accidentally get mired in a series of murders, this time when they are in San Francisco to take a cruise I got a few chuckles and enjoyed the book overall A light read good for when you don t have the energy to tackle something substantial.


    14. We used to live in the Seattle area so I thought Daheim s way with words and mixing up actual names was pretty funny So was the sleuthing by Judith and cousin Renie The last 2 books I have read seem somewhat contrived so maybe I just need a break from this series.


    15. A good read Not extremely active at the beginning bust easy enough to get into The end continued on after the story had wrapped up Currently reading another book by this author much impressed.


    16. I really enjoy this series The main character s interaction with her crazy cousin crack me up This book is set in San Francisco so the author has created a whole cast of quirky characters Fun, easy reading.







    17. Just another adventure with Judith and Renie They were not on Heraldsgate Hill this time, so the mothers, husbands and BB guests didnt take part, but still a great story.



    18. My favorite by this author so far The St Georges are great relief from the same old same old and provide comic relief.
