"Daheim writes with wit, wisdom, and a big heart."-Carolyn Hart, bestselling author of the Death on Demand seriesThe Wurst is Yet to Come: The wacky title alone tells you that you are once again in the uproarious realm of "the reigning queen of the cozies" (Portland Oregonian), the inimitable Mary Daheim! In this, the twenty-seventh glorious installment of Daheim's Bed-and-Breakfast mystery series, harried hostess Judith McMonigle Flynn and her irrepressible Cousin Renie find themselves in Little Bavaria, where the inconvenient discovery of a nonagenarian corpse threatens to put the kibosh on the local Oktoberfest. No one does cozy mystery better than the delightful Daheim-and if you're a fan of Lillian Jackson Braun, Diane Mott Davidson, or Jill Churchill, you'll definitely want to take a big bite out of this mouth-watering Wurst.

Back cover copy

Oh, for the love of lederhosen!

With the state B&B association threatening to yank her innkeeper's license (simply because an occasional corpse just happens to pop up at her Hillside Manor), Judith McMonigle Flynn wants to get away from it all-- and agrees to man a booth during Oktoberfest in the mountain aerie of Little Bavaria. With cousin Renie in tow, she hopes to win allies, solicit new guests, and keep her inn not only open but prosperous. The last thing she needs is another homicide sullying her reputation.

But even before the beer begins flowing, Judith stumbles over a body--right in the middle of an oompah band and a herd of German polka dancers. Caught between a wurst and a hard place-- vowing this time that she will not get involved, despite the entreaties of a local police chief--Judith hits on a brilliant idea. She'll have Renie pose as the sleuth. After all, what could possibly go wrong?

About Mary Daheim

Mary Richardson Daheim is a Seattle native with a communications degree from the University of Washington. Realizing at an early age that getting published in books with real covers might elude her for years, she worked on daily newspapers and in public relations to help avoid her creditors. She lives in her hometown in a century-old house not unlike Hillside Manor, except for the body count. Daheim is also the author of the Alpine mystery series, the mother of three daughters, and has three grandchildren.
