“Daheim writes with wit, wisdom, and a big heart."
 Carolyn Hart

Cormac McCarthy has nothing on Mary Daheim—whose fabulous Bed-and-Breakfast mysteries win hands down when it comes to outrageous zaniness. In All the Pretty Hearses, Daheim,“the reigning queen of the cozies” (Portland Oregonian), embroils Hillside Manor hostess Judith McMonigle Flynn in a lethal case of insurance fraud and mystery meat gone bad, in the twenty-sixth installment of the hilarious, New York Times bestselling cozy mystery series that remains as fresh and funny as the very first.

From the Back Cover:

There's no "fun" in "fund-raiser" for Judith McMonigle Flynn when she donates an overnight stay at Hillside Manor, dinner included, to the parish school's annual auction—especially when the winning bid goes to the persnickety Paine family. She'll have her hands full sorting through the painfully picky Paines' endless allergies and aversions. Then hubby Joe lands in jail after his latest surveillance job abruptly ends with an insurance fraud suspect being blown away by a .38 Smith & Wesson . . . that just happens to belong to Joe.

But finding the real killer and dealing with the Paines' pain are just the tip of the iceberg—what with Judith's cantankerous mother, Gertrude, agreeing to let a wealthy parishioner stable a horse in her toolshed apartment; cousin Renie trying to force-feed her loathsome Shrimp Dump recipe to the parish cookbook fund-raising committee; and a number of parish school kids falling sick after their weekly hamburger lunch.

About the Author:

Mary Richardson Daheim is a Seattle native with a communications degree from the University of Washington. Realizing at an early age that getting published in books with real covers might elude her for years, she worked on daily newspapers and in public relations to help avoid her creditors. She lives in her hometown in a century-old house not unlike Hillside Manor, except for the body count. Daheim is also the author of the Alpine mystery series, the mother of three daughters, and the grandmother of two granddaughters, all of whom live within shrieking distance.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 168 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. There s no fun in fund-raiser for Judith McMonigle Flynn when she donates an overnight at Hillside Manor for the parish school s annual auction. Judith feels like she s already losing it when the pricey winning bid goes to a family of Paines. Dinner is included, if Judith can sort through the endless allergies and aversions of the painfully picky Paines. The last thing she needs is another bed and breakfast guest who checks out permanently. Thankfully, she s not alone. Joe Flynn is back home, his latest surveillance job ending abruptly when a supposedly paralyzed guy suspected of insurance fraud is put out of action for good by a .38 Smith and Wesson. Surely one corpse in one week is enough, even for the Flynns. Cousin Renie is trying to force-feed her Shrimp Dump recipe (running slightly ahead of her Clam Doodoo and Bean Glop) to the parish cookbook fund-raising committee, while her cantankerous mother, Gertrude, agrees to let a wealthy parishioner stable a horse in her tool shed apartment. And neighbor Arlene Rankers wants to know why some parish school kids, including her grandson, are sick after the weekly hamburger lunch. Judith figures she s got more than enough to handle until the Paines go home. But at Hillside Manor, what can possibly go right?. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780061351594
