    If you like the title of Mary Daheim's latest Bed-and-Breakfast mystery, A Case of Bier, you'll probably enjoy the book more than I did. I'm not a fan of broad humor, the hit you in the face, Three Stooges type of humor. But, this is the thirty-first book in the series, so Daheim's mys...

    I love this series. Judith and Renie are the perfect comedic pair. However, I felt this story was lacking a resolution. Judith, Renie, Bill, and Joe traveled to Banff. A town located in the Canadian Rockies. The men go off on a fishing trip which meant the ladies were off on their ...

    Judith Flynn and her cousin Reenie are on vacation in Banff while their husbands fish. Due to a mistake on their husbands' part, they are staying at a motel instead of the lush resort they'd been promised, but that's all right. On their first day, they meet a strange family camping out...

    Received as a GoodReads giveaway. It's the first book I've read in this series, and probably the last. I liked the sense of humor throughout the book, but the characters were all so unlikable. Judith is extremely nosy; Renie is rude, whiny and constantly hungry; their husbands are self...

    I realized after the introduction of the Stokes family that this wasn't the book for me. There wasn't a likeable character in the bunch, though thankfully at least Joe and his mother in law were mostly absent. The book consists largely of driving back and forth between the motel, ho...

    The story was good. If I lived in Nebraska, I would be really upset at how the characters from Nebraska were portrayed. They sounded more like hill billies than corn huskers to me. ...

    3.5 stars Entertaining, but the ending was rather unusual. I enjoy reading a series where I know the people like my own family. ...

    Did not finish. I realize that I started a long-running series really late in the collection, but the story started too abruptly, the main characters weren't pleasant, and neither were the mystery people. I often like cozy mysteries but this wasn't one of those. ...

    This was one of those library picks that you go into with high hopes. As a draft, this story has potential. As the finished book- meh. ...

    I have read most of the Alpine series by Daheim but this is my first in the bed and breakfast series. What a difference. The main characters in this series are less serious and much more random in their attempt to solve a murder mystery. The plot itself is a bit zany and quite complica...

    After waiting over almost 2 years for this latest installment in the B&B series, I was rather disappointed in Mary Daheim's storyline this time. While Judith still manages to find a body. this time the rest of the characters seem to have been created as a last ditch effort to just ...

    I ran across this book at the library & realized I hadn't read one of Mary Daheim's books in years. Had enjoyed some in the past. What a disappointment, although I did persevere to the end! Fortunately a quick read, but still mostly a waste of time. What plot there was wandered, me...

    I know I've been reading this series for a LONG time but #31!!! To keep characters alive and functional this book is set in August 2006. Husbands Joe & Bill arrange a vacation for themselves and their wives, cousins Judith and Serena (Renie). Banff, Alberta, Canada provides beau...

    I really enjoy this crazy series. It was nice to read about Judith solving another case and Renie worrying about her next meal. ...

    I was a giveaways winner of this novel early in 2018, and I forgot about it due to the fact that it took forever to be delivered. I began reading it on a chilly raining evening thinking it was a good armchair detective novel. I was sorely disappointed. I liked Judith's character and I ...

    So ... What Really Happened? So many unanswered questions at the end. Who? What? Why? Where? And when? Seriously, very frustrating ending. This is my least favorite Mary Daheim book so far. ...

    How disappointing!!! I would have given this book a 1 1/2 stars if I could. We all waited months for the release of this book and this is what we got?? Another reviewer suggests that it was written by a ghost writer as it is not up to her usual excellent storytelling. I don't know but ...

    Rough. I?m not a fan of the writing here at all and there was a lot of mystery that never resolved. I had so many questions at the end. It was unfinished. ...

    This book was on pre-order for over a year as its publication date was delayed over and over again. Perhaps I should have recalled it's often a very large red flag when it comes to a book release having a lengthy delay. One reviewer here mentions the possibility of a ghost writer be...

    I won't rate this because I only read about ~35 pages before I decided I was out. The main characters are annoying as all get out, but I willed myself onward until the over-the-top stereotypes of Nebraskan farmers and Canadians got too much for me. Honestly, what does this author have ...

    It started out as a fun plot. Then went downhill from there. Some character moves were all over the place and it did not tie together in the end. ...

    This series story features Judith and her cousin Renie on vacation in Banff Canada as their husbands Joe and Bill disappear on a fishing trip. The descriptions of landscape and food are great. The cousins have a humorous relationship. Earlier books in the series have presented very wel...

    This book was so bad it was embarrassing. I have not read other Daheims and plan to avoid them at all costs. The cousins were obnoxious -- the RCMPs should have arrested them on general principles. And the one was always whining about being hungry -- does she have a tapeworm? Also, the...

    ****SPOILER ALERT****** Don't waste your time reading this book, life is too short. Too many characters that really don't even fit into the plot. Only the author really knows who did until the end and then the killer is a character that was introduced 3/4 of the way through the book. ...

    This isn't the first time I have started a series well past the first volume, but this was terrible. Judith and Renie are with their husbands in Banff, on a vacation. While the husbands screwed up the hotel reservations, and take off for a fishing excursion, Judith and Renie are in a l...

    I have read all of Daheim's Bed & Breakfast series and this book was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!! Although many of these books have had strange plots, at least I always knew what had happened and whodunit at the end of the books. Not this time!!! I still have no idea if there was a mur...
