This is a wonderful series. You can tell that the author lived these "dead-end" jobs. The realistic touches to the day in and day out aspects of the environment realy make these murders. . . umm. . . come alive? Ok. that was bad. But these books are great. And I will never sit or sleep on a hotel bedspread again... or use a jacuzzi. And I promise to always leave a tip. Characters are wonderfully dimensional and anything but ordinary. Each book contains a double mystery.. the promised murder and the heroine herself is caught up in a web of legal trouble that I'm still sorting out. Might be easier if I'd started with book 1 of the series, but .... where's the challenge in that?

I love this series but I am really afraid that this will be the end of it. I like the premise and find the characters really fun to read about.

Helen's ex finally comes looking for her in Florida. This was an interesting story line. I love the characters in this series, especially Margery.

After catching her husband cheating on her with their neighbor, Helen Hawthorne destroyed his SUV. The Judge directed her to pay her former spouse half her salary in an alimony settlement. Rather than remit one dime to this louse, Helen went on the lam and accepted low paying dead end jobs in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Her sister calls helento tell her that Rob the rat is now in the Fort Lauderdale area looking for her. When Helen goes to her maid job at the Full Moon Motel she learns Rob is a guest there looking at her employment record.------------ While eluding the despicable Rob, Helen finds the murdered corpse of another maid in the motel dumpster. The last time Helen saw Rhonda was three days ago when the woman was talking about her wealthy boyfriend giving her several fifty dollar bills so that she could purchase an airline ticket for her mom to vacation in Mexico. When Rob visits Helen¿s home, he meets his ex-wife¿s landlady who sets him up with an affluent sexagenarian widow, whose husbands died under mysterious circumstances. When someone else dies at the motel, Helen goes on red alert sleuthing to the point of potentially lethal consequences.------------------ MURDER WITH RESERVATIONS is the best mystery in this charming amateur sleuth series as Elaine Viets adds wit and humor into her characters. The heroine continues to earn the respect and admiration of the audience with her efforts to make a new life for herself. The continuing support cast is a colorful eccentric mob with hearts of gold as they look out for one another including Helen. The whodunit is fun to follow as Helen pursues clues while eluding her ex. Fans of Ms. Viets should also read her other jocular series starring Josie Marcus, Mystery Shopper.-------------- Harriet Klausner
