This is another interesting book in the bed-and-breakfast series written by Mary Daheim.

In this novel, Judith McMonigle Flynn, who runs a bed-and-breakfast, must leave her B&B for a short time while it is being renovated after a fire. She stays with her husband, Joe, her cousin, Renie, and Renie's husband, Bill, at the Stillasnowamish Casino, which is run by Native Americans. Renie's and Judith's mothers also end up sharing a room at the casino, which causes some laughs in the story. Judith and Renie have a great time on the slots, but wouldn't you know that murder seems to follow Judith wherever she goes. An illusionist is performing at the casino, and when a member of the act ends up dead, it looks like Judith's short vacation may turn out to be more work than play.

There is a surprise twist near the end of the book which I did not see coming. I thought the story was very interesting and full of laughs, many supplied by Judith's cousin, Renie. I am enjoying Mary Daheim's bed-and-breakfast stories more with each one I read.
