A Case of Bier Reviews
Not a big fan of this book. Very strange story plot and kept asking myself why I was still reading it. The only reason was because it was set in Banff, Alberta. I grew up in this area and knew it well. And to have characters there on vacation and not even venture out into the mountains is unheard of. Did not like the main characters and found their interactions and plot ridiculous.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for a review. I could not get into this book at all. I didn't care about any of the characters and actually found the cousins annoying. The plot just sort of meandered around and was unsatisfying. This was a new author to me, and I want to be fair, so I will try another book in the series. This one just didn't do it for me.
Judith and Renie are back. When they go on vacation, an apparent murder victim shows up. Judith investigates. Story was kind of complicated and for me a little difficult to feel the mystery was fully resolved. I've read all the prior books in the series and was a little disappointed with this one...especially after waiting so long for this to be published.
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 I am very sad.
I really enjoy this crazy series. It was nice to read about Judith solving another case and Renie worrying about her next meal.
I won an advance reading copy of this book in February. It arrived in November. When I opened the front cover, the first page started in the middle of a sentence and it was page 8. Pages 7, 6, 5, 4, 3,2 and 1 followed along with the title page. I was not surprised to find that this was not a very good book. The cousins were annoying. The mystery was convoluted and never really resolved (or not resolved very well). This book is a few hours I will never get back.
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 throw something together in order to complete the book, rather than for the author to actually come up with a great cozy mystery with the regular cast and crew: mother, spouse, neighbors, and police, all working to ...more
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 less desirable hotel. While exploring, they come upon a family camping on the river. The family is in a state because their grandfather, who was ill and was dying, has apparently been stabbed and killed. Judith imme ...more
