Read full description of the books This Old Souse:Murder, seamy secrets, and regular milk delivery
A nostalgic trip back to Renie’s old neighborhood wasn’t meant to get B&B hostess Judith McMonigle Flynn’s snooping engine revved up. But when the exotic and decrepit manse on Moonfleet Street that the cousins always thought was deserted turns out not to be, Judith figures what’s wrong with giving the creaky old house a closer look? The friendly neighborhood milk man claims he’s been making deliveries there for as long as he can remember. The seldom seen and rarely heard occupants, Dick and Jane Bland, and Jane’s spinster sister, Sally, pay their dairy bills by putting cash in the milk box—a curious situation to be sure, but certainly nothing sinister. At least not until Judith goes from being suspicious to being a suspect when she opens the trunk of her car and discovers a dead body…which, when alive, was tightly wrapped up in this whole blamed Bland business.
Read information about the authorSeattle native Mary Richardson Daheim has been fascinated by story-telling since early childhood. She first listened, then read, and finally began to write her own fiction when she was ten. A journalism major at the University of Washington, she was the first female editor of The Daily where she attracted national attention with her editorial stance against bigotry.
After getting her B.A., she worked in newspapers and public relations, but in her spare time she tried her hand at novels.
In 1983, Daheim’s first historical romance was published, followed by a half-dozen more before she switched genres to her original fictional love, mysteries. Just Desserts and Fowl Prey, the first books of thirty in the Bed-and-Breakfast series were released in 1991.
A year later, the Emma Lord series made its debut with The Alpine Advocate. Daheim has also written several short stories for mystery anthologies and magazines.
Married to professor emeritus and playwright David Daheim, the couple lives in Seattle and has three grown daughters. She has been an Agatha Award nominee, winner of the 2000 Pacific Northwest Writers Association Achievement Award, and her mysteries regularly make the USA Today bestseller list and the New York Times top thirty.
