Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When innkeeper Judith McMonigle Flynn promises husband Joe never to find another dead body, she wavers when she receives a dubious B&B reservation at Hillside Manor from a Mary Smith of New York City. More than Judith's curiosity is piqued when she recognizes her new arrival as Ruby Tooms, the world-weary barmaid from Little Bavaria, checking in with an overnight bag and a cold case of murder.

Ruby's strangled mother is long gone, but the killer was never caught. To compound interest for both Flynns, the unsolved case was a first for Joe's former homicide partner, Woody Price. Maybe it's time to revisit the scene of the crime.

With a reluctant Cousin Renie in tow, Judith ventures into her long-forsaken old neighborhood, the site of the McMonigles' ill-fated Meat & Mingle Cafe. Traipsing from nursing home to nursery garden, from butcher shop and bus stop to beer and betting parlors, Judith and Renie track down a killer intent on seeing them come in dead last.

Synopsis:

In Gone with the Win, another charming entry in Mary Daheims beloved Bed-and-Breakfast series, someone from Judith McMonigle Flynns past comes knocking, and the reluctant amateur sleuth finds herself working a case so cold it's practically frozen.
 
Ruby Tooms drops her bags and a mystery on the lovely Persian carpet of Hillside Manor, Judiths bed-and-breakfast in Seattle.
 
Rubys mother was strangled years before, soon after her divorce from Rubys father—and the killer is still at large.
 
Undaunted, Judith agrees to help Ruby. Cousin Renie grudgingly pitches in, and even Judiths husband, Joe, gets involved.
 
The games afoot and ahoof with Judith discovering that the hand she's been dealt includes not only a joker but that deadly card, the Ace of Spades. And, shes off…in pursuit of a killer.
 

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 and the mother of three daughters.
