Book Description

July 1 1995 Jane Jeffry Mysteries

Jane Jeffry, suburban sleuth extraordinare, and her friend, Detective Mel VanDyne, have braved a blizzard to join her friend Shelley at a Colorado ski resort. In spite of having all their kids along, Jane and Shelley imagine a few mindless days of relaxation. But their hopes are dashed on their first attempt to ski when Jane careens into a snowman that hides a very real -- and every dead -- body.

The slopes are littered with suspects -- a convention of genealogists led by a political fruitcake who thinks she's going to put her hand-picked Tsar on the Russian throne, a mysterious crimson-clad skier who's always on the horizon, and ex-stockbroker who's hiding from his investors, and an irate tribe of Native Americans. Jane has to take a census of the suspects and make some grave assumptions about who was vacationing with malicious intent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reading with Tequila Jan. 5 2010
By Jennifer Sicurella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As all the Jane Jeffry mysteries are, From Here to Paternity is a light and fluffy mystery with lots of character interaction. Jane's neighbor invited her to visit a ski resort and share her opinion of whether it would be a good investment for the neighbor's husband. While there, Jane, as per usual, discovers a couple of bodies and sets off to discover the murderer with or without the help of detective boyfriend Mel. I liked the resort setting and appreciated the chance to see most of the characters outside of their normal, everyday situations. I was a little confused as to why Jane's opinion about investment property was important, but I guess you had to get her near the bodies somehow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colorado Trip Sept. 5 2011
By Andrea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jane Jeffreys is the main character. She and her best friend, Shelley, live next door to each other in Chicago. They are housewives with children, and they are really fun and interesting characters. Jane and Shelley usually have some pretty interesting and fun adventures.

In this particular book, they go to Colorado. It is really a business trip for Shelley's husband, but the others come along for a little Colorado mountain vacation. The book was fun and interesting, and needless to say, this is a cozy mystery, so that means a mystery or two had to be solved.

I like the way it was mentioned about the thin air and low humidity, and the way coldness doesn't feel as cold in Colorado as it does in Chicago. They heavily bundled up and then didn't realize they didn't need to bundle up so much.

I did enjoy the "trip" to Colorado. The cozy mountain cabin and the adventures. I think anything in Colorado would be fun and cozy. As usual, Jane and Shelley were fun characters. The Native Americans were interesting, and I learned some things. I enjoyed that part of the book.

I am a huge fan of this series. I love Jane and Shelley. I did enjoy this book.

One star is missing. That is because I found some of the book dull and boring. All that talk about the Russian tsar and the geneology and about characters I didn't even know, and boring classes, etc.

There was a very interesting ending; the twist made it worth having to go through all that Russsian Tsar stuff (which I could care less about) and about geneology about people I don't even know, etc. just to get to the very interesting ending.
3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, nothing awful June 11 2008
By Smeddley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Definitely a fluffy, cozy mystery, this one has nothing to recommend it, though it also has nothing that screams "don't waste your time!" It was a typical "housewife finds body, solves crime" book with decent characters and plot. The snowman was a nice, humorous touch and I don't really mind the characters, though the relationship between the heroine and her boyfriend is a little tiring. You just want them to get on with it or call it quits, really. Overall, a good book for an afternoon of mindless reading.
