Overview


When you make a game of murder, be careful who the players are...

Who could resist the mock-murder weekend at the charming Mimosa Inn-- certainly not bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Claire Malloy, who decides to bring her petulant daughter Caron along for some detecting. As the guests settle in for a weekend of sleuthing, dressed as their favorite literary detectives, many a Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot stand poised to solve a murder. But fiction becomes alarmingly real, as the mock-murder victim isn't just playing dead-- he's really been bashed to death. More determined than even to find the killer, Claire combs the grounds of the lovely inn for this most uninvited guest.

    Murder at the Murder. . .

    I'm a long-time Joan Hess fan and I enjoy the little vacation from reality I get to take while immersed in her characters and stories. Easy, breezy reading entertainment. This book was purchased as a gift to a friend send her on a little vacation, too.

    Fun Read, But Strays Off Course

    I love Joan Hess and I really enjoyed this, the second Claire Malloy mystery. It's a fun, light read, well-written, with a cast of quirky characters that only Joan Hess can create. The premise of a real murder happening at a mock murder-mystery weekend, at a quaint bed & breakfast, was a really great idea. Yes, it has been done before. I enjoyed this book and love the series. However, for some reason, I felt that the first half of the book works much better than the second. I actually enjoyed following Claire and the other guests, as they sorted out the mock murder mystery. After the real murder is committed, the book starts to stray. I admit that it may just have been me not paying enough attention, but when the solution is revealed, I felt it relied too much on time-tables. However, there were plenty of other clues and because of that and the fact that the ending does make sense, I still gave this book 3 stars. I admit that I enjoyed the first book, Strangled Prose, much better, but this is still a great series and this book is great for rainy day reading. It's light-hearted, a quick read and a lot of fun.
