Review: Hocus Croakus (Bed-and-Breakfast Mysteries #19)

User Review  - Jenn - Goodreads

This B&B mystery had a very different ending than what I was used to in this series. This time the whole family goes in a vacation to the local Indian run casino. This includes both moms and both husbands. As one would imagine, hilarity and murder ensue. Read full review

About the author (2007)

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.
