For the past 21 years readers have been following the sleuthing exploits of bed-and-breakfast owner Judith McMonigle Flynn and her cousin Renie. In this 27th novel in the Bed-and-Breakfast Mystery series, Judith and Cousin Renie agree to staff the B & B Association's information booth during the Oktoberfest celebration in the mountain hamlet of Little Bavaria.

There's been talk that the state is considering lifting her B & B license because Hillside Manor has had yellow Crime Scene tape stretched across its entrance too many times, so Judith hopes to maintain a low profile and mend a few fences while helping out the B & B Association.

Naturally, she isn't in town long enough to drink a beer and down some schnitzel when Judith is drawn into the murder investigation of Dietrich Wessler, the beloved patron of the village.

Unfortunately, Judith's crime solving reputation has gone before her and the local police chief asks her for some help. Not too keen on the idea, given the high profile of the case and the scrutiny she's been under, Judith reluctantly agrees, but only if Renie will pose as the actual sleuth.

This should work out perfectly, or so Judith thinks. Of course, nothing is as ever as simple as it first appears and both women are in for some major surprises. Lederhosen, oompah band music, lots of lager and polka dancers can't keep this visit to Little Bavaria from turning into one of the wurst experiences Judith and Renie have had in quite a while.

A perfect blend of humor and suspense, this is a series that mystery readers keep returning to year after year, which explains why it has had such a long and successful run.
