Addicted to this series and loving it!, September 14, 2012
By Ellen Rappaport (Florida)
This review is from: Murder Can Run Your Stockings (Desiree Shapiro Mystery #13) (Mass Market Paperback)
On a flight back from a wedding in Minneapolis Desiree finds herself seated next to Ben Berlin, an attorney, on his way to his Aunt Bessie's funeral in New York. During their conversations Ben reveals his sorrow over the loss of his Aunt who apparently died after a fall down her basement stairs. Ben states that he had lived with his Aunt for sometime in order to finish school due to his parents moving out of state.
Desiree returns to her office to greet Jackie, her secretary,and to be informed that Ben was on the phone. Ben has reason to believe that his beloved Aunt Bessie may not have had an accidental tumble down the stairs afterall. That is, in Ben's opinion. Ben asks Desiree to take on this case and prove whether Aunt Bessie was pushed down the stairs (and who did the pushing) or was it an accident. Desiree listens to Ben's reasoning and takes on the case.
Soon Desiree begins to line up the usual suspects and schedules interviews. There is one in the line up that I picked up on from the get go...but where is the proof. In her quest to uncover the truth Desiree leaves no stone unturned.
This is my 13th Desiree Shapiro book in this marvelous series. There are several reasons why I continue to enjoy entering Desiree's world. Her life is realistic. She's the average woman with flaws and with a list of characters (family, friends and neighbors) that add to her life. #1 being Nick, Desiree's significant other as well as her neighbor living a floor above her. The problem continues to be TKFH. At long last Desiree is actually able to prepare and complete an entire homecooked meal for Nick without TKFH ruining it all with his repulsive presents.
Jackie is her usual budinsky self although a bit in the background on this entry. #2 Ellen, Desiree's sweet as apple pie, niece. They're related not through blood but rather through her late husband Ed. Ellen had been recently married to Mike, who is on his way to becoming an MD. Desiree is invited over for the usual dinner of take out Chinese from the Madarin Joy Restaurant as they go over the case of Ben's Aunt Bessie.
Although in this case I was able to find the murderer before getting to the end of the story,nevertheless, Desiree's step by step sleuthing in order to find some proof took me along on her journey.
I highly recommend this series to all cozy lovers.
