    What a ROMP!!

    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 studhusband 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 d e 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! Get your own copy now...and put it on your list of gifts to give readers during the coming holidays. They will love it!

    Absolutely great!!

    Mary Daheim has done it again. Judith has promised her husband,Joe, that she wouldn't get involved in the murder that happened at his ex's house during a party. With Viven coming back to the Hill, Judith is upset and loe and behold, another murder happens. With Judith trying not to solve the murder that happened at Viven's party, and not letting Joe know she is of course doing just that, it is so funny that you can't put the book down once you start it. Find a comfortable place to sit and read this book until the end. Of course, Serena and Oscar are there too and this makes he story even mote hilerous. Gett he book and find out what happens when Judith, Serena, Joe, and Viven get involved with the solving of a murder that never should have happend on the "Hill."

    Vi Agra Falls (Bed and Breakfast Series #24)

    In Seattle, Judith McMonigle Flynn owns and manages the Hillside Manor bed-and-breakfast. Recently she and her former husband Joe Flynn remarried. However, domestic tranquility and bliss vanish rather quickly when Joe¿s former wife ¿Her¿ with the ample cleavage as always openly on display, nouveau riche Vivian, arrives. Accompanying her is her much younger boy toy spouse, former minor league baseball player Billy ¿Blunder¿ Buss.------------- However the Heraldsgate Hill cul de sac residents including Judith, her cousin Remy, and Joe are horrifically stunned when Vivian announces plans to build an ostentatious condo complex amidst their homes. Adding to the growing fiasco is the arrival of Billy¿s brother Frankie and his wife Marva Lou who stay at the B&B. Frankie is irate that his late father left a fortune to his trophy wife Vivian. When a corpse is found behind Vivian¿s new home, Judith can¿t help herself. She starts investigating though she denies to Remy every sleuthing step of involvement she takes.------------ This long running cozy keeps its freshness with the interrelationships, many dysfunctional between the cast including the cousins. The story line is fast-paced from the onset as an eccentric horde invades the Heraldsgate Hill neighborhood causing havoc to the residents and amusement for the reader. The investigation is cleverly handled to add to the overall fun of exacerbation as Judith reconsiders her second time with Joe due to his eccentric people invading their of people.------------------- Harriet Klausner
