As all the Jane Jeffry mysteries are, From Here to Paternity is a light and fluffy mystery with lots of character interaction. Jane's neighbor invited her to visit a ski resort and share her opinion of whether it would be a good investment for the neighbor's husband. While there, Jane, as per usual, discovers a couple of bodies and sets off to discover the murderer with or without the help of detective boyfriend Mel. I liked the resort setting and appreciated the chance to see most of the characters outside of their normal, everyday situations. I was a little confused as to why Jane's opinion about investment property was important, but I guess you had to get her near the bodies somehow. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
This book is dedicated to all the other genealogists who have been such a help to me - especially
Caroll Geerling,
who so generously gave me all those Webers.
First words
"All we need now is a roaring fire and a bottle of wine," Jane Jeffry said contentedly as she looked out the window at the snow.

Book description
    ICED ON THE SLOPES

Jane Jeffry, suburban sleuth extraordinare, and her friend, Detective Mel VanDyne, have braved a blizzard to join her friend Shelley at a Colorado ski resort. In spite of having all their kids along, Jane and Shelly imagine a few mindless days of relaxation. But their hopes are dashed on their first attempt to ski when Jane careens into a snowman that hides a very real - and very dead - body.

The slopes are littered with suspects - a convention of genealogists led by a political fruitcake who thinks she's going to put her hand-picked Tsar on the Russian throne, a mysterious crimson-clad skier who's always on the horizon, an ex-stockbroker who's hiding from investors, and an irate tribe of Native Americans.

Jane has to take a census of the suspects and make some grave assumptions about who was vacationing with malicious intent.
