    I rate this book 2.5 stars. The main part of the book was set in the year 1989. I really enjoyed the previous book,Died on The Vine. This read was dull and many times I just skipped pages.

    Do you remember what the computer world was like back in 1998?


    Do you remember what the computer world was like back in 1998? I had to stop and think about it and do a little googling (which was not really possible in 1998 as that’s when Google was first incorporated and it was still a garage operation) to see what the primitive “interweebs” were like in those good old days. Ebay, the barely-hidden online auction site in this novel, started in 1995 and I recall first hearing about it in 1997. By 1998, it was on its way to making financial history.

    Online auctioning is at the core of Bidding on Death and makes for a really interesting story. I first met Cissy and her friends in Died on the Vine and was struck then about two things in particular—how much I liked them all and how smart Cissy was. Both of those thoughts are still true. Cissy also reminds me very much of myself the first time I heard about Ebay, completely fascinated. She takes it a step further than me, though, by jumping right in to the new way of making money off stuff just lying around the house.

    While Cissy’s learning how to do this, she’s also sniffing around the murder of a woman she barely knew but who had a really long list of potential enemies that might have wanted to do her in. Could it be that it’s all about her auction offerings? And how did Cissy end up with Rose’s nasty little dog, Paco, who seems to have a hate on for the whole world?

    Joyce Harmon has once again written a delightful mystery with a handful of red herrings and characters that I enjoy spending time with. I really hope she’ll be coming out with a third book soon.

    Nostalgic fun. Back to the late nineties (that's nineteen-nineties, btw) when the internet was 'a fad' and online auctions were awesome and strange. The characters are people you could picture hanging out with, and I loved the nasty little dog. Hope to hear more about Cissy and her family and friends.

    She's baaaacck! A cozy mystery series is like visiting with old friends, and it's great to catch up with Cissy and her gang in this entertaining sequel to Died on the Vine.. This is fun, fast-paced, story, with an intriguing mystery, quirky characters, and plenty of humor. Paco the bereaved chihuahua is infuriating, hilarious, and adorable. I wish the Passatonnack Winery was a real place; I'd like to visit!
