Overview

Moon Signs (Moon Mystery Series Book I) by Helen Haught Fanick

Retirement is a time for knitting, gardening, and an occasional quiet lunch with friends, according to Kathleen Williamson.  Her sister Andrea has an altogether different point of view.  When the sisters go to the Canaan Valley to search for paintings mentioned in a document found in an old hotel once owned by their grandparents—paintings that might be Monets—Andrea immediately becomes involved in tracking down a murderer.  Kathleen would much rather be looking for the paintings, but she goes along with Andrea, since the victim was their hotel-keeper, murdered just down the hall from their room. The question is: Does the murder have something to do with the elusive paintings?

There are many clues and many suspects, including hotel staff, valley residents, and the mysterious foreigners who come from the Eastern Seaboard for skiing.  There are also many types of danger—icy roads, sub-zero temperatures, and a killer who doesn’t care how many people die in the attempt to make sure the right ones do.

170 pages, a clean, cozy mystery. Free, free standing, well edited, part of a series. This book is about two older women, one is 60 and one is 64, if I remember correctly, go on a sking weekend, to a mountian lodge, where their niece, Maggie, works as a sking instructor. The three women hope to find two hidden Monet sunflower oil paintings, left to them by thier uncle and now missing. They find more than they bargained for. This is an interesting story with no gory details, no sex, profanity or other adult details. It is a murder mystery. No romance. For ages 17 and up. AD

Good read! Two older ladies solve mystery at a ski lodge. Interesting, not graphic, not insulting to older readers (as in patronizing). Highly recommend!

A believable and interesting plot. Her description of the scenery as they traveled in West Virginia made me feel as if I was there with them.

I love mysteries, and this one did a good job of hiding who done it. I especially liked the descriptions of the scenery, it was almost like I could see it too.

The story is told from the viewpoint of a woman in her sixties, and the author keeps in character quite successfully. The result is reminiscent of an Agatha Christie mystery rather than the gritty and graphic style that is now popular , and obviates the need for an obligatory sex scene. A most pleasant read.

Just the kind of mystery i adore. Strong characters of the type that show up in every family, plus a plot that offers intrigue without vulgar language and graphic violence. Keep them coming!

What a pleasure to enjoy the gifts of a wonderful storyteller who is not driven by formulaic or demographic demands. And especially one who has no ax to grind nor political agenda to push on a captive audience. Thank you, Helen! Kitt

Not real exciting but not boring. Set in West Virginia but in reading I kept forgetting that. With the whole thing of skiing and foreigners.Does have a who- dun -it, little mystery to it. A few things are left questionable.

This book was the kind I can tolerate but not really relish. It portrays two 60-something sisters (one single, one widowed) and is told from the point of view of the widowed one. She is described in ways that strongly reinforce every imaginable stereotype of "elderly" ladies. As a 60-something couple ourselves to whom none of the following apply, we got a bit tired of all the references to drinking endless cups of coffee and hot chocolate, munching cookies at every opportunity, being terrified of things like ski lifts, and being befuddled by all types of technology. Also, the continual suspicions and speculations about every other character in the book got rather wearisome and only added to the sense that the main character was a semi-addled old doofus.

An ok read about two senior sisters in West Virginia. When a murder happens one sister is more concerned about lost paintings. No mention of why another murder happened at the conclusion. Just not a page turner or plausible enough for me to continue the series.

A soft mystery. Cute

Entertaining but confusing in places. Silly or unbelievable in others. Grammar! I HATE "me and..." That is so illiterate! Even if so many people do say it. "they" is plural. Other errors. Was the author paid to push books for other authors? How in the world can the moon signs affect the lives of people? Pure paganism. I did finish the book but won't read another. I realize that this review is a little harsh, but I don't read to become frustrated.

Two elderly women, lots of snow and a murder mystery. I read it in one sitting and enjoyed it thoroughly.
