Another humorous mystery. I love any book that makes me laugh.
Ellie Haskell's long-lost father shows up at her door with an urn conttaining the ashes of the love of his life, who died in an accident in Germany -- or so he thinks. Ellie and Ben soon decide otherwise. This is up to the usual -- and hilarious -- standards of this series.
Witty and entertaining. The Denver Post was correct in its review, "..a wonderfully dotty cast of characters, an unerring sense of the absurd, and witty dialogue and insights."
Another good Ellie Haskell mystery, funny as always.
Another delightful chapter in the life of Ellie Haskell. Ellie meets a gypsy fortuneteller, is reunited with her absent father and the ashes of his dearly departed sweetheart, and things go from wacky to worse.
Another fun and cozy Ellie Haskell mystery.
Ellie Haskell and her husband, Ben, haven't had a vacation in years. Now their bags are packed, and they're ready to set off for a romantic getaway to France. But things go awry when a chain-smoking gypsy approaches Ellie with a dire prediction: "Take that trip at your peril!" Those ominous words ring true when her prodigal father Morley suddenly appears with an urn containing the remains of his ladylove, Harriet, whose untimely death in a car accident has left him bereft.
When Morley loses the urn in a bizarre series of events, Harriet's family is furious, and a bewildered Ellie asks some probing questions: What exactly is in that urn? Is her father a pawn in a deadly game? Is this what the gypsy had foreseen? The answers are hilariously revealed in a caper so charming it could only have come from Dorothy Cannell.
