"After a busy summer, Judith McMonigle Flynn—owner of Seattle’s popular Hillside Manor B&B—needs some R&R. Her husband, Joe, surprises her with a trip to Banff in the Canadian Rockies. Judith’s overjoyed that Cousin Renie and Bill are joining them. But while making reservations, Joe and Bill made one tiny mistake. Instead of a gorgeous suite in a hotel modeled after a Scottish castle, they’re staying at a small motel farther down the road. Though their accommodations leave something to be desired, the on-site guests are the real prize. Ma and Pa Stokes and their family members have gathered on the mountainside to give a relative a permanent send-off—a nice gesture, until Judith realizes that paying their respects might be a little premature . . . without some sinister assistance. Old man Codger’s final wish is for his remains to be sent off down the Bow River. Yet the old coot isn’t quite dead—yet. Now it’s up to Judith and Renie to determine who arranged to send a would-be corpse on an early date with the undertaker."--Back cover.

Ms. Daheim simply NEEDS to return to Alpine, where the heroine seemed real and actually had a bit of a REASON to be snooping into murder, well... kinda/sorta *lol* and "most" of the folks were believable. They were fun! I read them all.
Have periodically TRIED a few of this series, cannot finish them, have dropped others after just a chapter or two. I guess it's just me, but I have a problem with a B&B owner as a slueth. It just doesn't play for me.

Silly me. I thought they were talking about the German drink, not a corpse conveyance.
The characters were all a little too cutesy and the hillbilly stereotypes were a bit much. Does anyone really talk like that? I seriously doubt it.
I tried to read this piece of drivel but it was just too ridiculous to continue.
After a few chapters I had to call it quits.

I find this book most irritating when it comes to people trying to act cute while behaving in an outrageous manner.I had to stop half way through the book and will return it to the library.

I know I've been reading this series for a LONG time but #31!!! To keep characters alive and functional this book is set in August 2006.

Husbands Joe & Bill arrange a vacation for themselves and their wives, cousins Judith and Serena (Renie). Banff, Alberta, Canada provides beautiful scenery, an expensive hotel, a remote fishing package the 'boys' are excited to attend, leaving the 'girls' to shop, walk & Spa away the hours. What can possibly go wrong? I'm not saying anything else so you can enjoy the fun and frustrations our favorite cousins encounter.

This book does not dwell on previous adventures but does quickly explain the background of the major players so you might be able to read it as a stand alone - I can't honesty say since I've read them all.

Enjoy the lovely descriptions of 2006 Banff and a cozy with more than enough quirky characters that make Renie seem boringly normal.
