Publisher Comments:

B&B hostess Judith McMonigle Flynn and her closer-than-a-sibling cousin Renie would be crazy to turn down a free, 1930s-themed South Pacific islands cruise aboard the magnificent San Rafael, the pride of the Cruz Cruises fleet. Unfortunately, the fabulous pre-launch party is as far out to sea as the passengers are likely to get, after the body of their VIP host, Magglio Cruz, is discovered stuffed in the piano and the cruise is cancelled.

Suddenly free to gad about San Francisco with their marooned shipmates — at least one of whom is possibly homicidal — the cousins decide to join glamorous, martini-quaffing Rick and Rhoda St. George and their wheezy white pooch, Asthma, for a bit of amateur sleuthing. But the route to Magglio's murderer may not be such smooth sailing. And if Judith, Renie, and the St. Georges aren't careful, they may all end up leaving their hearts in San Francisco . . . and the rest of their mortal remains as well!

Synopsis:

< P> < b> Judith and Renie's dreams of R& R on a deluxe cruise ship are dry& ndash; docked when murder occurs at a pre& ndash; launch party. But the stabbing death of cruise line owner Magglio Cruz is only the first in a trio of homicides as the cousins prowl the steep streets of San Francisco.< /P> < P> They're in good & ndash; & ndash; and bad & ndash; & ndash; company, however. Fellow travelers Rick and Rhoda St. George may be pleasantly plastered, but their eyes aren't blurred to motive, method and mayhem. Along with the ships' Art Deco decor, the St. Georges' breezy 1930's presence (accompanied by their wheezing dog, Asthma) makes Judith and Renie feel as if they're living in a time warp.< /P> < P> Of course the cousins will be lucky to be living at all by the time they sort through the suspects...< /P> < P> < /b> < /b> < b> < /P>

About the Author

Mary Richardson Daheim is a Seattle native with a communications degree from the University of Washington.

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 and the mother of three daughters.
