When the garishly grotesque clan of wealthy carpet-sweeper magnate Otto Broadie sweeps down upon Judith McMonigle's Hillside Manor Inn, it looks like there'll be a wild night of drinking, dining, and fortune-telling in the offing. But when their soothsayer-for-hire Madame Gushenka drops dead after someone douses her tea leaves with bug killer, harried hostess Judith and her irrepressible cousin Renie are left to clean up the mess. One of the Brodie bunch would dearly love to sweep the Madame's murder under the rug, however, and that might mean eliminating the nosy Ms. McMonigle as well. But with the help of her one-time beau, policeman Joe Flynn, Judith is determined to rattle the dust off some closeted family skeletons, in order to coax a killer out of hiding before coffee is served.

This was a good introduction to Judith McMonigle and her cousin, Renie, who are the main characters for this Bed and Breakfast series. Judith does indeed figure out who dunnit with help from Renie and her old flame, Joe Flynn, the police detective in charge of the case. Exterminators at the guests' house and a snowstorm keep all the bizarre suspects sequestered at Judith's newly established bed and breakfast until all the clues are assembled. A good cozy with a puzzle that is fun for the reader to work out.
