Here is another good mystery by Mary Daheim, one which I found very enjoyable to read.
The bed-and-breakfast mystery series features Judith McMonigle Flynn as the owner of a bed-and-breakfast in Seattle. She seems to run across dead bodies more frequently than she would like, and in this book, her bad luck strikes again. Judith is opening her bed-and-breakfast to a slew of Hollywood people who are attending a movie premiere. When the movie turns out to be a flop and the depressed producer turns up dead with his face in Judith's plugged up kitchen sink, she knows that she is once again going to have another mystery to solve, like it or not. Judith's very abrasive mother, Gertrude, is also featured in this story, as well as Judith's cousin, Renie, who is her accomplice when it comes to solving crimes. And Joe Flynn, Judith's husband, always lends a helping hand when Judith needs it.
This was an entertaining book, and I found myself not suspecting at all who was actually the killer. Another interesting aspect of this story was the fact that it takes place over Halloween, so we have some trick-or-treaters thrown in for good measure.
I found Silver Scream to be witty and enjoyable, and it did keep me guessing to the end.
