You are going to want to settle back in a comfy chair and keep reading once you begin Mary Daheim's Vi-Agra Falls, the newest addition to her popular Bed&Breakfast series. In any series a regular reader will have personal favorites. Vi-Agra Falls is most definitely in my top three!
Judith Flynn, owner of the Hillside Manor, her old family home turned B&B, has a problem. A big problem. Her husband Joe's former wife, Vivian, is back in the neighborhood stirring things up as only she can do. This time Vivian is not just an aggravation because of the relationship. She has a new young stud husband in tow and has mysteriously inherited mega-bucks from ....well...you have to read it. It's quite an amazing back story.
With her new wealth Vivian buys the house next door to hers and wants to tear down both her home and the neighboring house in the quiet, secluded cul de sac to build a high rise condo building. The entire neighborhood goes into an uproar of disbelief over the mere thought of the horrible impact the condo would have on their friendly little corner of the world.
On page 69, after throwing a large, wild, and very noisy outdoor party in her front yard, the inebriated party girl, Vivian, finds an unidentified dead body in her back yard! She naturally shows up at Judith's door seeking Joe's help and support only to pass out on the sofa. What could be more intriguing than stunned disbelief, confusion, a dead body, your spouse's unconscious ex-wife and a skeptical 911 operator all on one page? Fortunately, Judith and cousin Renie have had a little experience with dead bodies and solving crimes.
Judith soon finds the already interesting neighborhood filling with a crazy cast of characters, all of whom have their own agenda. You will find the characters easy to keep straight and the action non-stop!
This is just the beginning of 326 pages of twists and turns that will keep your attention and keep you laughing until the very end. It reminds me of another of my favorites, Daheim's "Major Vices" which was one of the early books in the series.
Mary Daheim is in top form with "Vi-Agra Falls". It's a must read.....and a keeper!
