Despite a great many red herrings, both the Whodunit and the Whydunit are pretty obvious. The problem is fitting them together. When the link is made, it is pretty thin. But the cast of characters is entertaining enough to make this a good read for the airport, bus stop, doctor's office, etc.
A quick mystery read.. Surprising ending.
7th, I think in this B&B series. A cozy read.
I enjoyed this Iris House B&B mystery with Tess Darcy, and her devoted boyfriend Luke.

I like this series. Wish this cover wasn't so graphic LOL. I'm a true cozy lover. These have a great victorian setting.
Wonderful story, characters developing nicely. Very good plot and fast moving cozy.
From back of book:
A Cantankerous Biddy...
Newly engaged to her devoted boyfriend, Luke, and in the midst of wedding plans, Tess Darcy, owner and operator of the charming Iris House B&B, manages to vounteer some spare time at the senior center, but her goodwill is challenged by petty, mean-spirited Edwina Riley, an elderly tyrant. With her sharp tongue, bullying manner and nasty temperament, Edwina harasses people into meeting her demands. And if they refuse, there's the devil to pay.
Becomes and Inconvenient Body
But it is Edwina's time to pay, when she unwittingly makes her final appearance a the quilting circle and then dies before Tess's eyes. As expected, no one is sorry about the despot's demise. But murder is murder, and as Tess begins investigating Edwina's family and long list of enemies, she discovers some startling secrets about some not-so-innocent seniors and the bizarre company they keep. Now she'll have to connect motive to murder--and learn who wanted to end the strife of Riley.
