    I have read most of the Alpine series by Daheim but this is my first in the bed and breakfast series. What a difference. The main characters in this series are less serious and much more random in their attempt to solve a murder mystery. The plot itself is a bit zany and quite complicated. The action takes place in Banff where the Flynns and Joneses are vacationing. There is an odd family from Nebraska camping near the motel. They claim they are waiting for an elderly relative to die and then ful I have read most of the Alpine series by Daheim but this is my first in the bed and breakfast series. What a difference. The main characters in this series are less serious and much more random in their attempt to solve a murder mystery. The plot itself is a bit zany and quite complicated. The action takes place in Banff where the Flynns and Joneses are vacationing. There is an odd family from Nebraska camping near the motel. They claim they are waiting for an elderly relative to die and then fulfill his wish, sending him down the river on a bier. There seems to be murder afoot and cousins Judith Flynn and Renie Jones tackle the issue while their husbands are off fishing. I wish there had been more description of the location. Banff is beautiful, I think, but Judith and Renie rarely seemed to even notice their awesome surroundings. The personality of Renie seemed over dramatized to me, always wanting something to eat. The family camping near the motel was really strange but the individual characters seemed rather flat to me. They were odd characters but not with distinct and entertaining personalities. I think this series might be appreciated most by elderly readers. The slow pace of the plot and the rambling plot development left me wanting tighter writing. I think I'll stick with the Alpine series. I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    An enjoyable, cute cozy mystery! This is the first book I have read by Mary Daheim and it won't be my last. After a busy summer, Judith McMonigle Flynn desperately needs a holiday.

Though the husbands have made the arrangements, how bad can a short time away in the beautiful mountains be? Judith and Renie are about to find out! However, the other guests who are camping nearby, are rather strange and peculiar. They’ve gathered on the mountainside to give a relative a proper and permanent send-off, but Judith realises that paying their respects might be a little premature. It’s up to her and Renie to save a would-be corpse from an early date with death. I really enjoyed the main character and her husband. There was a lot of good humour in this book, which helped with the cozy atmosphere and I loved the random approach they had when trying to solve the case. A CASE OF BIER is entertaining and a fairly fast read, with a quick pace. I was able to follow the characters and their backgrounds without any problem, even though I haven't read any of the previous books in this series. I would like to read the other books since I enjoyed this one. Thank you to Edelweiss, William Morrow and Mary Daheim for a free ARC of this book in exchange for a voluntary, honest review.

    I was a giveaways winner of this novel early in 2018, and I forgot about it due to the fact that it took forever to be delivered. I began reading it on a chilly raining evening thinking it was a good armchair detective novel. I was sorely disappointed. I liked Judith's character and I didn't feel like I was missing alot, being that this is the first novel in the series I picked up. But the story dragged on not in a cliff-hanger way.

I liked Judith's character and I didn't feel like I was missing alot, being that this is the first novel in the series I picked up. But the story dragged on not in a cliff-hanger way. The characters and mystery just got more and more strange and disjointed as I continued to read. I still don't understand the conclusion. Was the mystery solved? Who was John Smith? Did someone die? And for heaven's sake if Renie complained one more time about eating I was DONE. The entire book read more like a travel brochure for Banff than an murder mystery. I probably won't pick this series up again.

    Received as a GoodReads giveaway. It's the first book I've read in this series, and probably the last. I liked the sense of humor throughout the book, but the characters were all so unlikable. Judith is extremely nosy; Renie is rude, whiny and constantly hungry; their husbands are selfish, insensitive jerks; and the supporting characters are unrealistic and stereotyped. I know it's a long running series and regular readers probably see more redeeming qualities in them, but I just have this book Received as a GoodReads giveaway.

The plot seemed to fall apart at the end, too, lots of loose ends.

    I don’t know if I liked this book or not. It seemed strange all the way through. Maybe if I had already read previous books in the series I might have liked it better. The characters didn’t seem real and the writing shallow somehow. I wanted to like it, just seemed like something was missing and the main characters redundant. Maybe that was intentional. I would read another book by this author because there is definitely promise in the writing. I liked where I thought the story was going, it jus I don’t know if I liked this book or not.

    I won an advance reading copy of this book in February. It arrived in November. When I opened the front cover, the first page started in the middle of a sentence and it was page 8. Pages 7, 6, 5, 4, 3,2 and 1 followed along with the title page. I was not surprised to find that this was not a very good book. The cousins were annoying. The mystery was convoluted and never really resolved (or not resolved very well). This book is a few hours I will never get back.

    I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for a review. I could not get into this book at all. I didn't care about any of the characters and actually found the cousins annoying. The plot just sort of meandered around and was unsatisfying. This was a new author to me, and I want to be fair, so I will try another book in the series. This one just didn't do it for me.

    Agatha Raisin with all the snark and none of the charm (or MC Beaton's charming writing). I imagine fans of the series enjoy our characters, and, like many series, the stories are increasingly for them.
