Booklist Online advanced review

While their husbands go on a fishing trip, cousins Judith and Renie vacation in spectacular Banff, Alberta.


Amateur sleuth Judith’s curiosity soon leads the cousins to look into the murder of the elderly patriarch of a Nebraska farm family staying at the same inn. The Stokes family is in Canada to honor the final wish of the very ill “Codger” Stokes, who wants his body to be floated on a bier down a nearby river. Unfortunately, he is killed before he can die of natural causes, and his body disappears, along with the bier.


The incredibly quirky Stokes family, their saner Iowa relatives, and a missing maid obfuscate the cousins' investigation, but, with the help of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Judith perseveres.


While it is difficult to believe that the RCMP would share as much information with tourists as they do here, Judith and the prickly Renie are both fully fleshed characters and will hold the interest of longtime readers of Daheim's series, now in it's 31st installment.
