I love train trips; thank you Agatha Christie, and thought this book would be a good read. I was wrong, it was a GREAT read. Judith Flynn runs Hillside Manor; a B&B in Seattle Washington. Judith and her cousin take a mini vacation on Amtrak to Boston. People vanish, people die, and the girls need to find out who is doing this and why.

I love this series as a rule, but this one was just too confusing. Too many people, too many off-the-wall circumstances. Keeping track of who was who was where just detracted from the story. I usually read these in a couple of days - this one took a couple of weeks because I just kept shaking my head and putting it down.

There are a lot more characters in this moble Bed and Breakfast Series. I had to keep track of who was and wasn't on the train and identify characters that had a history at the bed and breakfast.

Wee Willie Weevil, daredevil and martial arts movie icon, is staying at Judith's B&B. He insisted on performing a dangerous jump from the B&B roof and got a ride in an ambulance. Judith agrees to accompany her cousin Renie on a cross-country train trip since Renie hates flying. Both of their husbands have to be in Boston, so the men fly and the women take the train. They have first-class accommodations on the Empire Builder. What kind of coincidence is it that the injured Wee Willie and his entourage are on the same train? There's a minor collision. While waiting for a new engine in a small Montana town, the cousins' sleeper attendant goes missing. When Wee Willie dies and Judith is blamed, the cousins set out to uncover the truth and clear Judith. This is a series I really like. I'm from Washington State, so the fact it's set in Seattle helps. Mostly it's the characters that I like. Judith and Renie are fun characters who get into a lot of sticky situations. Sometimes they could have been avoided, but most of the time they couldn't. The additional characters in this book were fun and kept me guessing right 'til the end who did it. I highly recommend this book and the series. Dawn Dowdle

In Seattle, Washington at the Hillside Manor Bed & Breakfast, daredevil Wee Willie Weevil performs a stunt from the roof that fails. His assistant Pepper Gundy blames the fiasco on the B&B and informs owner Judith McMonigle Flynn to expect a lawsuit. Needing to escape from the guests including her daughter and grandchildren, Judith, her and her cousin Serena Jones and take the cross country Amtrak Empire Builder to Boston on vacation. Their husbands will meet them there. They use the rails out of deference to Renie who fears flying. Also on the train are injured Willie, Pepper, and another of his assistants. Soon after the unhappy reunion, a train attendant disappears, an accident forces the train to stop in Big Sky Country, and Willie is dead in a sleeper. The latest Bed-and-Breakfast amateur sleuth (see Vi Agra Falls) is a wonderful whodunit although at times there is too much side baggage even on a cross country train. The cast is sold as the sleuthing cousins work the homicide though their motive for doing so is weak. Still fans of the long running B&B mysteries will enjoy riding the rails with the lead females as they leave Hillside manor for a respite only to investigate a homicide. Harriet Klausner
