Who could resist the mock-murder weekend at the charming Mimosa Inn- certainly not bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Claire Malloy, who decides to bring her petulant daughter . The Claire Malloy Mysteries by Joan Hess.

Who could resist the mock-murder weekend at the charming Mimosa Inn- certainly not bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Claire Malloy, who decides to bring her petulant daughter Caron along for some detecting. But fiction becomes alarmingly real, as the mock-murder victim isn't just playing dead- he's really been bashed to death. More determined than even to find the killer, Claire combs the grounds of the lovely inn.

The second volume in the "Claire Malloy" series finds widowed bookseller Claire taking her teenage daughter Caron to a mystery weekend at a country inn. But instead of the fake murder that is the usual centrepiece, the actor playing the victim is murdered for real. Used availability for Joan Hess's The Murder at the Murder at the Mimosa Inn.

The Claire Malloy Mysteries by Joan Hess. It used to be a retreat for some Texas oilman; now it’s owned by one of Carlton’s old students, Eric Vanderhan. I fed the boy spaghetti for almost four years and allowed him to babysit so that I could attend feminist lectures on the evils of motherhood.

This is the second book in Hess' Claire Malloy Mystery series and the third I have read. They do well as stand alones and am happy to say that with each book her writing seems a bit stronger. Quick, cozy mystery read. Claire decides to go to a murder mystery weekend at the Mimosa Inn and drags her less than enthusiastic teenage daughter with her. Claire is determined to solve the mystery and win the prize, a bottle of champagne. Her boyfriend Peter (a police investigator) ridicules the whole idea of pretend murder games which only makes Claire more determined. Th This is the second in the Claire Malloy series, and is not my favourite.

When Claire Malloy and her daughter Caron attend the mock murder weekend at the charming Mimosa Inn, everything goes swimmingly until Harmon, the leader of the theatrical group staging the event, turns up as the corpse.

Behind him, Eric stood unmoving, his demeanor as lively as that of a cigar-store Indian. On the porch the guests had gathered to watch the latest scene.

Peter shook his head several times, but the sheriff continued steadily until at last they seemed to reach an agreement, albeit tentative on one side. I hurried across the grass to shake Eric’s arm. Where’s Mimi?. I demanded in my own terse whisper

Amateur sleuth Claire Mallory and police detective Peter Rosen face an unexpected challenge when the moderator of the Mimosa Inn's mock murder weekend is found dead

I got this book because I like "murder mystery weekend" plots. This one was ok, I've read better, I've read worse. I wish the main character could have left the teenage brat at home. She detracts from the book.

My order arrived when stated, and I am pleased with the condition. Looking forward to continuing reading this series. I have looked at discount book stores, trying to find additional books in several series, and have had no luck finding the older editions that I have not read in a series I accidentally discovered one of the newer books. Thanks for offering these books so I can catch with the series.

If you enjoy the current trend of the amateur female sleuths, Joan Hess' Claire Malloy series is a great one. The characters are engaging and you want to read the next book to see what they're doing now. This book was an early work and very enjoyable.

A pathetically written story. I kept hoping it would get better - should have stopped after the first couple of chapters.

I find it difficult to care how a mystery ends when I don't like the main character(s). Claire needs to mind her own business and to keep her mouth shut when something is told to her in confidence, and she needs to spend more effort being a mother and less on being a police-wannabe. I was appalled by her homophobia. (She could also use a proofreader -- the book is full of typos.)
The story is good. The word usage/spelling is atrocious. Am surprised Bezos thinks it's acceptable. It's not.
