    Clare Cosi's new friend, millionaire David Mintzer, has an offer no New York barista could turn down: an all-expenses-paid summer away from the sticky city. At his Hamptons mansion, she'll relax, soak up the sun, and, oh yes, train the staff of his new restaurant. So Clare packs up her daughter, her former mother-in-law, and her special recipe for iced coffee for what she hopes will be one de-latte-ful summer.

    A good, lighthearted murder mystery. Wonderfully rich plot with enough twists and turns to keep me guessing whodunit until the very end!

    The poor relations, those genteel paupers of society who live on little more than their dignity, have banded together and started The Poor Relation hotel, hoping to be bought out by their embarrassed relations - but as the hotel prospered, they began to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Now once more they are in need of funds. To stoop to crime in their days of poverty was one thing, but to turn to it again when they have enjoyed a certain amount of success is quite another. But they all agree: the hotel must go on.

    Clare says: "More Regency Fun! Miss Tonks Saves the Day!"

    Interior decorator Deva Dunne never dreamed she'd see a Monet hanging on someone's dining room wall. Then she snags a client with two Monet seascapes. Her thrill lasts until she finds one of the paintings missing, cut from its frame, and the cook shot dead. Rough-around-the edges, but gorgeous all-around police lieutenant Victor Rossi insists Deva leave the sleuthing to the police. But what could it hurt to come up with a list of suspects that doesn't include her? Then Deva finds another victim....

    I've read two Jean Harrington mysteries now and have thoroughly enjoyed them both. The characters are delightfully fun and the plot has just enough twists to keep the reader guessing. Quintessential cozy mysteries!

    Interior designer Deva Dunne's latest project comes to a screeching halt when blood on the carpet leads her to the body of her client, an exotic dancer with a mysterious past. But the murdered woman is not the only resident of the posh beachfront condominium with secrets, and investigating officer Lieutenant Victor Rossi considers them all suspects.

    Story

    Caution: If you're like me, you'll find the first chapter tough to endure. The narrator starts out rather flat and the storyline fails to entice.

    But hang in there! By the middle of the second chapter, the narrator gets some fun new characters to wok with -- and the plot starts to get juicy. Settle back and enjoy what turns into a delightful and silly little mystery.

    George Gaskill, a car salesman from Indiana, goes missing from the stern deck of the Aegean Queen, leaving only a pool of blood and a strange note behind. Ollie Osgood, the husband of Dotsy Lamb's best friend Lettie, is the last person to have seen him and one of three men who lost a bundle to George in a Texas Hold'em Poker game. Then the ship's photographer turns up murdered on the beautiful island of Mykonos.

    Story

    This is my second Dotsy Lamb listen and I'm already a huge fan! Maria Hudgins has given us some fabulous characters to connect with. Somehow, she's managed to allow them to be over 50 and perfectly contemporary. Neither too "hip" nor too "dowdy." Just right.

    Her plot, too, is terrific. A lot of twists and turns with a bit of learning (in this case, about Greek artifacts) built in. I truly didn't figure out who "did it" until our heroine did. Again, just right.

    Thank you, Maria Hudgins! And may we have some more, please?
