The bed and breakfast mystery fans have another delicious serving of mischief and mystery from Mary Daheim and her latest book, "The Wurst is Yet to Come." (William Morrow; July 3, 2012)
The irrepressible cousins, Judith McMonigle Flynn and Serena "Renie" Jones, travel to the Oktoberfest celebration in the tiny little burg of Little Bavaria where Judith has volunteered to help out at the bed and breakfast booth.
Poor little Renie can't stand bratwurst, but that is not the "wurst" thing to come for later that evening at the reception in Wolfgang's Gast Haus, the town's founding father, Dietrich Wessler, is murdered.
With a bit of detective work, Judith, also known to her web fans as the Female Amateur Sleuth Tracking Offenders or FASTO, finds that Herr Wessler was indeed the town's father - in more ways than one.
With so many suspects and descendants to investigate, the cousins are nearly at wits end. The mystery deepens when they find that Little Bavaria has been plagued with a number of suspicious deaths that appear to be related to the murder of Dietrich Wessler.
But no murderer can escape the keen eye of the Female Amateur Sleuth Tracking Offenders - or Renie's sarcastic wit.
Mary Daheim's "The Wurst is Yet to Come" is one of her best and leaves her reader wanting more mysteries featuring the indomitable cousins Judith and Renie.
