About the Author

Seattle native Mary Daheim began telling stories with pictures when she was four. Since she could neither read nor write, and her artistic talent was questionable, her narratives were sometimes hard to follow. By second grade, she had learned to string together both subjects and predicates, and hasn't stopped writing since. A former newspaper reporter and public relations consultant, Daheims first of seven historical romances was published in 1983. In addition to Avon Books' Bed-and-Breakfast series featuring Judith McMonigle Flynn, Daheim also pens the Alpine mysteries for Ballantine. She is married to David Daheim, a retired college instructor, and has three daughters -- Barbara, Katherine and Magdalen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second in the series Feb. 17 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this book Judith McMonigle, madcap proprietor of a bed-and-breakfast, leaves her establishment to go on a vacation to Vancouver with her cousin and best friend, Renie. They go to the Clovia Hotel, a favorite with Renie and her husband, and while there they meet Marie, a girlhood friend who was a professional dancer and is now married to Max, a famous producer. Marie asks her old friends to join her and her friends who are all luminaries in the theater. Early in the book there is a murder, and Marie and her friends are the chief suspects. Judith, of course, feels that she is better qualified to solve the case than are the local police investigators. She and Renie follow several red herrings and pursue the pasts of each of their eight companions, with sometimes disastrous, sometimes hilarious results. This is a pleasant "cozy" for those who enjoy the genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best work Dec 29 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read "Just Desserts," and found it pretty interesting, and was looking forward to seeing what happened with Judith and Joe, her high school boyfriend from several years ago. While this book mentions Joe and there is some slight interaction, it seems to me to be long and rambling, and the "Sacred Eight" characters are just annoying. I may try to read the next in the series, but I'm struggling to finish this one! Have no doubts, I WANTED to enjoy this book, but it seems tedious and slow-moving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bublegum reading July 8 2008
By E. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This second book in the Bed and Breakfast series continues to build the characters of Judith and Renie. The story is a bit convoluted and is not possible to solve without cheating, but the development of the main characters is imporant as you continue to read the series. These first few books were good reads. What I call 'bubblegum' in that they are not War and Peace and they help to unwind from the daily stressors without being over-taxing. What I found important when I continued to read this series was it helped me get a 'feel' for the characters. Not being of their generation, each book helps you to understand why the character would put up with an overly abrasive mother, a condescending 'love of her life' husband and various and sundry other characters. Sometimes throughout the series I find myself frustrated with the lack of spine in the main character, but taking her in context helps me to understand that forcing my morals and traits on her would not be true to her generation and beliefs. So I let things slide and just enjoy the books for what they are. Nice cozy reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Grover Girls Take a Trip. Reviewer: Renee S. N.Y.C. Aug. 20 2009
By Renee Shields - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Okay, so this is Nancy Drew for grown-ups. Judith and Renie are fun characters, and while half the fun is in trying to solve the puzzle, ( you don't have a chance here ), the other half is just in enjoying the relationship between the two women and the antics they get up to. Either you like them or you don't. As far as the mystery goes, in this one you are not given all the clues, or if you are they were too obscure for me, but that didn't really bother me. If you like the writer to be scrupulously fair then this isn't the book for you. Love Renie's food obsession Lots of food tips if you are ever in the Pacific Northwest, and if you have Renie' constitution. It is also fun, for me, to read about slightly older heroines who are not relegated to Knitting and rockers. Reminds me of Elizabeth Peters' Jacqueline Kirby series. I wish she'd written more of those, but Amelia Peabody is still around, so that's good. I enjoy Daheim's writing, both for the throw-away humor and the plotting, and I don't see why the previous reviewer was so upset about her relationship with Gertrude. Might as well say she ought to give Sweetums to an animal shelter. Judith just accepts what is, and so should the reader. This is Daheim's world, and she can populate it any way she likes. Recommended.

This is the second book I have read by this author. I have found it to be light and quick reading, something I want at times after heavier reading.
