In September, our library and other CCS member libraries are moving to a new online catalog called Enterprise. The online catalog we currently use is provided by a third-party called BiblioCommons. The new catalog will function a lot like this catalog.  As part of the migration, on August 15, 2014, your existing BiblioCommons shelves and lists will be copied over to Enterprise as private lists.  After August 15, any new BiblioCommons lists or shelves (or modifications to existing ones) will not be transferred to Enterprise.  In addition, tagging, reviews, and other user-generated information will not migrate to Enterprise.  Click here to read more.
On Sunday. September 7th, from 9:30AM to 10:00AM the catalog's functionality will be limited to searching only. Login will be disabled for system maintenance.

All the Pretty Hearses

Item Details

Bed-and-breakfast owner and amateur sleuth Judith McMonigle Flynn has to deal with a case of insurance fraud--and mystery meat gone bad--in this delightful entry to the beloved series by USA Today bestselling author Mary Daheim All the Pretty Hearses There's no "fun" in "fund-raiser" for Judith McMonigle Flynn when she donates an overnight stay at Hillside Manor for the parish school's annual auction--not when the pricey winning bid goes to the persnickety Paine family. Dinner is included--if Judith can sort through the endless allergies and aversions of the painfully picky Paines. The last thing she needs is another B&B guest who checks out permanently. Thankfully, her husband, Joe, is home early. His latest surveillance job has just ended abruptly with a .38 Smith & Wesson blowing away the insurance fraud suspect. Unfortunately, the gun belongs to Joe, who finds himself in a jail cell as a murder suspect while Judith tries to find what's left of her mind--and the real killer. But Joe's dilemma and the unbearable Paines aren't Judith's only problems. Her cantankerous mother, Gertrude, has agreed to let a wealthy parishioner stable a horse in her toolshed apartment; cousin Renie is trying to force-feed her loathsome Shrimp Dump recipe to the parish cookbook fundraising committee; and neighbor Arlene Rankers wants to know why some parish schoolkids, including her grandson, are sick after the weekly hamburger lunch. Judith figures she's already got way too much on her plate, so what else could possibly go wrong? On the other hand, at Hillside Manor, what can possibly go right?

I really like this series of books but it becoming a little bit more unrealistic than unusual. If you like the series you will like the book but it may be time to shelve Judith and her family and find a new sleuth to uncover murders in this quiet little town.

This series can be uneven. Sometimes the protagonist can do too much cringing-that-her-husband-will-get-mad-she-is-investigating. This installment is all over the place. I had a hard time finding the suspense. I keep reading the series, however.
