Saks and Violins
2 journalers for this copy...
Amazon Editorial Review:
Life has hit some sour notes as of late for B&B hostess Judith McMonigle Flynn and her cousin Renie. Graphic design guru Renie's up to her eyebrows in debt after some seriously overzealous spending sprees. Meanwhile, Judith's got her hands full with her wacky new neighbor, Rudi, a virtuoso violinist whose daily—and usually unclothed—practices are unhinging her and other neighbors in the cul-de-sac.
But, though they'd all love to kill nude, rude Rudi, it's his larger-than-life mentor, Dolph Kluger, who takes his final bow after ingesting some ruthlessly poisoned rhubarb. To add to the musical mayhem, Rudi's priceless violin bow goes missing, Renie's useless credit cards are stolen, and each murder suspect seems loopier than the last. Once again, the cousins are going to need some fancy fingering to make a cold-blooded killer sing—but if they're not careful, the next music they hear will be their funeral march.
Looking forward to reading this one.
This one was good. I do like this sleuth and her cousin.

If I hear once more about Judith's hip replacement I think I'll shriek! The surgeons should be talking to MS Daheim about her portrayal of the results of their work. Her weakness and pain is not the way I hear it and my Mother, at about the same age, had a replacement after several years of extreme pain and never complained of difficulties from it. Anyway - the extreme complexities of the musical family was difficult to follow. I almost needed to draw up a family tree. Judith's mother drives me up the wall, as does Arlene from next door. All that being so, why do I enjoy these? Answer, I don't know, except that the pacing, events, revelations and ancillary people are intriguing and there are enough funny bits that I'm kept reading. I think MS Daheim needs to read up on fox hunting a little more, though, unless the eastern states have a unique form of that activity. I was pleased to see the pushy police officer was hoist with her own petard. That was satisfying. A fun read.
