Fowler, Earlene.
Adult Fiction FOWLER

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

With the imminent arrival of her mother-in-law, unfinished Christmas shopping and unexpected dog-sitting responsibilities, Benni Harper, amateur sleuth and folk art museum curator in San Celina, Calif., has enough on her hands even before she looks into a suspicious death in Fowler's delightful 13th entry in her Agatha Award-winning series (after 2006's Delectable Mountains). When Constance Sinclair, Benni's boss, can't get help from Benni's police chief husband, Gabe, the art patroness demands that Benni investigate the death of her friend Arva "Pinky" Edmondson. Pinky apparently died of a heart attack in her sleep, but Constance is convinced she was murdered by one of the local socialites vying for admittance to the exclusive 49 Club. Benni delves into the secrets of the town's elite with her usual flair, unraveling a plot that is as dangerous as the bulls on her father's ranch and as cozy as the quilts she reveres.

From Library Journal:

Benni Harper's mother-in-law arrives in San Celina, CA, with her new husband to celebrate Christmas. Trying to recover from the shock of meeting a man whom she and police chief husband Gabe did not know existed, running interference between Gabe and his estranged mom, and getting ready for a major event at the Folk Art Museum, Benni juggles everything well until her boss asks her to investigate the death of a major museum donor. Returning to her Benni Harper series after her praised standalone debut, The Saddlemaker's Wife, Fowler is comfortable in her writing and knows Benni's family and friends so intimately that the characters fairly bubble with energy and believability. Filled with the trappings of daily life, her 13th Benni Harper title will appeal to readers who like Rett MacPherson and other cozy authors. Fowler lives in Southern California. (c) Copyright 2010.
