A Taste for Murder | [Claudia Bishop]

A Taste for Murder

Hemlock Falls is a pretty little town in upstate New York. Sarah Quilliam, with her talent for business, runs the Inn at Hemlock Falls, while her sister, Meg, keeps the guests happy with her culinary abilities. But when it comes to murder, the Quilliam sisters have to rely on other skills - spotting clues, solving crimes, and catching culprits. The History Days festival is the highlight of the year in Hemlock Falls, and the reenactment of the 17th-century witch trials is the highlight of the festival.

Publisher's Summary

This is the first book in a delightful series featuring two sleuthing sisters.

Hemlock Falls is a pretty little town in upstate New York. Sarah Quilliam, with her talent for business, runs the Inn at Hemlock Falls, while her sister, Meg, keeps the guests happy with her culinary abilities. But when it comes to murder, the Quilliam sisters have to rely on other skills - spotting clues, solving crimes, and catching culprits.

The History Days festival is the highlight of the year in Hemlock Falls, and the reenactment of the 17th-century witch trials is the highlight of the festival. But this year the mock execution becomes all too real when a woman is crushed under a pile of stones. The victim has been identified as a guest at the inn, but the killer remains unknown - so far.

Claudia Bishop is the author of the popular Hemlock Falls mystery series as well as two novels in the Casebooks of Dr. McKenzie mysteries. Under the name Mary Stanton, she is also the author of an eight-volume children’s fantasy series, Unicorns of Balinor.

    Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

    "Disappointment"

    Sometimes a good narrator can rescue a weak book, or a good book will shine through despite a weak narrator. Sadly, this one seemed to me therefore to have been the worst of both worlds. I really thought the premise of the book sounded clever. Cozies can be tricky, because it is easy to cross the line to sappy or outright silly. And that's pretty much how I viewed this one. Bought it on sale, just to see. A Taste For Murder may be someone else's taste, but it was not mine. I'm sorry, but it was pretty bad--at the groaner level.

    I noticed that the author has also written children's literature. Oddly, I suspect that may be where her real talent is. I had the sense that she probably does a wonderful job with that genre. I would not hesitate to get her work there if the chance or need arose.
