Carolyn Hart is, in my opinion, the most accomplished and the best traditional mystery writer today. Her two series, the Death on Demand series and the Henry O series, closely follow the "cozy" customs. Her sleuths, bookseller Annie Darling in the first and retired journalist Henrietta Collins in the second, are people you'd like to know. They are amateurs, characters who are fully developed and who often find themselves in peril. Through wit, ingenuity and creativity they solve the crime at hand. The emphasis in each story is the reasoning by the protagonist that leads to the eventual solution of the crime(s).
In RESORT TO MURDER, Henry O joins her grandchildren and ex-son-in-law at a Bermuda resort for his wedding. The bride is a compulsive flirt, who can't seem to stay away from men. The groom is jealous. Stir into this mix a hotel owner whose husband may have committed suicide because of the bride-to-be, a granddaughter who dislikes the bride so much she threatens to kill her, a touch of blackmail and a roaming "ghost" and you have a story you won't want to put down until you finish it.
Hart's strong point is puzzle solving. We follow Henry O's analyses, her interventions and consequences and her re-evaluations until right up to the conclusion. Then the story finishes with the classical confrontation scene that is almost a "must" in this kind of story.
I've read all of Hart's books and eagerly await the next. If you haven't met Henry O or Annie Darling yet, put them at the top of your to-read list. You won't be sorry.

Carolyn Hart is one of my favorite authors in the mystery genre and she did not disappoint me with this entry in the Henrie O series. I enjoy this series as much as the Death on Demand series she writes and am always glad to see a new one coming out. In this episode, Henrie O is recovering from an illness and attends her former son-in-law's wedding on a resort island. A murder occurs and, of course, Henrie O works to solve the mystery. As always, Hart's writing is dead-on; her characterizations are excellent, there are clues to help the reader along without giving the solution away easily, and the descriptions of the surrondings are vivid enough to make the reader feel as if s/he knows where s/he is.
Hart's next book is a Death on Demand book and I hope that the next one will be another Henrie O. It is nice to have the break between the episodes of the two series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Henrie O receives an unusual wedding invitation to Bermuda. She is invited to the wedding of her former son-in-law, Lloyd to a wealthy and beautiful widow, Connor Bailey. Although she is not that eager to attend, Henrie O decides to go in order to support her grandchildren. Connor is not particularly happy to be in Bermuda because the last time she was there, a friend of hers plunged off a tower to his death. From the minute Connor arrives, she is frightened by ghostly apparitions and supposed visitations from the dead man. Both Connor's and Lloyd's families are unhappy about the marriage between them, but the family members seem to try to make the best of the situation. When a murder occurs, someone is put on the spot and accused of being the murderer. Henrie O doesn't believe that justice is being done, so she sets out to find the perpetrator. This is another good read in the Henrie O series.

Henrie's daughter Emily asks her to accompany her two children to their father's wedding in Bermuda. The wedding is to be at the small hotel where the happy couple met. Unfortunately, the manager's husband died there the year before, in questionable circumstances, and the proposed bride, Connor, was supposedly the reason. The children dislike Connor, and her side of the family also seems less that pleased with the arrangements. A "ghost" is seen hovering around the tower and Connor's sanity seems to be crumbling. Soon, Connor is murdered and the proposed groom Lloyd is the suspect. Henrie O has to find out who really killed her for her grandchildren's sakes.
The mystery was really very good in this novel. I had a very hard time figuring it out. I love Bermuda, and I enjoyed the little descriptions of the Island. I went there in May however, and the residents thought that we were crazy to swim in 75 degree water, I can't imagine sunbathing in January. It seemed especially wierd for people from Texas and Georgia to go to a colder place for a vacation. Henrie O's recovery from pneumonia was the only reason that I could figure that she changed from a very active older woman to Miss Marple. All criticisms aside, this is a very good mystery and I look forward to the old (that is, not OLD) Henrie O in the next novel.
