Judith McMonigle Flynn has her hands full with unexpected family ties and a dead body in the backyard in this delightfully zany mystery in Mary Daheim’s popular Bed-and-Breakfast series.
Rodney Schmuck and his wife, Cleo, Hillside Manor’s latest guests, seem completely ordinary—well, except for that last name. Judith McMonigle Flynn is touched to hear that the forty-something couple is in town to visit family. Rodney has come to visit his mother—who, he claims, is none other than Judith herself! Shocked to meet a son she’s certain she never had, she insists he’s made a mistake. Then Rodney shows her proof: a birth certificate from Norway General Hospital listing Judith Anne Grover as his mother. The father’s name is Unknown.
Judith doesn’t know Rodney and she doesn’t care that a piece of paper says he’s hers. But she’s got an even bigger problem on her hands when one of the B&B’s own guests turns up dead. To Judith’s surprise, Joe is willing to help her investigate—this case has hit too close to home for him to let pass.
Then Rodney announces he wants Judith to financially compensate him for abandoning him. Perhaps she’ll sign over Hillside Manor? Fat chance of that, Judith declares, and wonders what kind of scheme Rodney has in his devious, greedy mind. With Joe hot on the murderer’s trail, Cousin Renie is only too glad to help Judith find the truth about the Schmucks—before they move in for good.
