Overview

Maggie decides she needs a break. Teaching high school geometry has her burned out, so she plans a week vacation at Highview Inn, a mountain resort in Maryland. The peaceful, idyllic surroundings are the perfect antidote, and she looks forward to long days of playing tennis and swimming. But on her first day she discovers the body of a hotel employee in the woods. The young waitress was also a former student of hers and the murder disturbs Maggie in more ways than one.

Unlike most math problems she encounters, this mystery has no easy answers. As the list of suspects gets longer she finds herself distrusting everyone. With clues from the girl's diary and inquiries into her suspects' histories, Maggie moves closer to the truth. Then she learns of other puzzling "suicides" and accidental deaths in the resort's past whch seem too coincidental to her. But the killer knows what she is up to, and she will have to outwit this cold-blooded murderer or die trying.

    Highly recommended

    This is the first in the Maggie Olenski series.
    Well-written mystery with delightful characters. There's something for everyone - a resort, a touch of civil war history, and a well-told tale that fans of mystery will enjoy. Don't let this one slip away...

    Really liked it!

    I liked everything about this book - the characters, dialogue (often funny!), setting (at a mountain resort in Maryland), and the mystery. There was even a little Civil War history thrown in (not too much).

    I'd recommend it for an enjoyable read - a great get-away at the end of the day.

    Spell-Binding

    'Resort to Murder' met my criteria of a spell-binding mystery because it kept me totally absorbed. I wanted to know how the plot unfolded and continued to read until I learned the identify of the murderer and why that person felt compelled to take such drastic steps. An added bonus was that I could relate to the setting, since it was near where I live (Maryland).

    Hooked

    This book had me hooked from the first chapter! The characters were believable and the plot was intricate. I found myself thinking about what might happen next when I was driving in my car or working around the house. The author gave very subtle clues as to the identity of the murderer which were fun to review after I had finished the book. The ending was a surprise!

    Good Book!

    I was lucky enough to obtain one of the first copies of 'Resort to Murder'. I enjoyed it thoroughly! I liked the fact that it's set in my home state (Maryland) and has scenes in places like Antietam. But mostly I liked the main character, a young woman teacher, and the story. There's plenty of suspense and some humor, but a whole lot of pleasure in just reading it. The end was very satisfying, although I hated to finally close the book. I hope there's a follow-up soon!
