All the Pretty Hearses LP: A Bed-And-Breakfast Mystery (Paperback)
Theres no fun in fund-raiser for Judith McMonigle Flynn when she donates an overnight stay at Hillside Manor for the parish schools annual auction and the winning bid goes to the persnickety Paine family. Then her husband Joes latest surveillance job ends abruptly when an insurance fraud suspect is blown away. Unfortunately the gun belongs to Joe, who finds himself in a jail cell while Judith tries to find whats left of her mindand the real killer.
But Joes dilemma and the unbearable Paines arent Judiths only problems. Her cantankerous mother, Gertrude, has agreed to let a wealthy parishioner stable a horse in her tool-shed apartment; Cousin Renie is trying to force-feed her loathsome Shrimp Dump recipe to the parish cookbook fund-raising committee; and neighbor Arlene Rankers wants to know why some parish school kids, including her grandson, are sick after the weekly hamburger lunch. What else could possibly go wrong? On the other hand, at Hillside Manor, what can possibly go right?
