    2. I do not know if there will be any additional books in this series. This book was a whole lot better than the first books in the series. I would like to see more about Rick if there are any future series. I do wonder why the author gave Daisy a character she could love (view spoiler)[and then kill character off (hide spoiler)]. Readers can tell the author has grown and evolved in her writing if they have read the first or second book.

    3. best book in the series so far. The storyline and plot are an improvement from the previous books in the series.

    6. AN OLD-FASHIONED MURDER---------------------------------Let's say, for the sake of discussion, that you have a grandmother who is obsessed with Victorian houses and antique furniture. Now, you love your imaginary grandma--you really do. But, you can only take so much talk of settees and old houses before you are ready to kiss her on the cheek and call it a day. That is how I would describe my experience with this book. I love these characters, but the story waxed slow and tedious at times.For ex [...]

    7. Aunt Emily's inn is about to host a weekend house party for a few friends and neighbors to celebrate remodeled rooms and new furniture. Tipsy antique furniture, unwanted guests, a raging blizzard, and a body turn the pleasant weekend into a locked room mystery with moonshine and southern hospitality to lighten the tragedy. Daisy McGovern, one of the inn's longtime residents, has too many suspects, too many questions, and very few allies in the search for a possible killer. Rick and Beulah are st [...]

    8. Well this book is my favorite of the three. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. I love the whole whodunit scenario and it was well played in this bookI guessed wrong! Shew! That was hard to admit, lol. I really want Daisy and Rick to get together, they're killing me slowly, haha! In all honesty, I think i have a crush on Rick! *gasps loudly* I can't believe I said that, lol. I got the first book in this series at my local library. It's kinda based around Appalachia and that's close to ho [...]

    9. I've been enjoying this series, and Miller's come through again. Bakery owner and deserted wife Daisy McGovern and her ailing mother live in Aunt Emily's inn, with friend Beulah and whatever tourists are in the area. A winter party, which includes Daisy's new beau and her missing husband's cousins, is stranded by a blizzard, and one of the party is dead in what everyone is sure isn't an accident. No-one, law or otherwise, can reach them, and many of their number are behaving oddly. After the pow [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this one. Characters were good, pace was good, the mystery was tight. I like the local place names popping up (I'm in the county over from where it was "set"). The only thing that was a little weird was some British phrases popping up here and there (like a redneck fellow calling someone "chap", the use of "Ducky" and "Luv" as terms of endearment, and this constant thing with tea). Despite the oddness of it, or maybe I liked that too, I really enjoyed this one and will actively [...]

    11. This must be the dullest whodunit or closed circle mystery I've read. The book is mostly about creaky Victorian house, and about 60 pages on the actual mystery. If you have trouble finishing it but must know the who did it, just read the last 50 pages and be done with it.

    12. Think Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians" set in the American South with Southern secrets, prejudices, pride, eccentricities, and moonshine during a freak blizzard!

    13. This series is full of surprises. This entry is much like a familiar cozy and then, zing, a very clever twist.
