I just finished A Dash of Death.. Liked it better than A Taste of Murder. I started A Pinch of Poison. It seems interesting so far.....but I didnt realize Quill and Myles break up!!! I'm starting to really enjoy this series.... I'm glad I bought all of them from the beginning!!!

B. No letting the cat out of the bag!!!! Glad you're enjoying the series. I still need to get the most recent book though.

I love these books. I would love to see a book where Diane Mott Davidson's Goldy comes to Hemlock Falls to see Jullian. Jullian is working with Meg in the Inn's kitchen. Together Quill, Meg and Goldy could cook up a storm and solve a great mystery! What do you think?

My three special angels.....

After listening to everyone talk about this series, I decided to try it. I just finished reading A DASH OF DEATH and I'm hooked. I was at Borders and they only had three of CB's novels. I started reading from, what I thought was, the beginning of the series only to discover A TASTE FOR MURDER came first.

I love Hemlock Falls, Quill and Meg. The town and all of its goings on are a riot. I am in the middle of MURDER WELL DONE and then have A TOUCH OF THE GRAPE. Although, I think I will make a trip to my half-price mystery shop for the earlier episodes. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR RAVE REVIEWS. I've now added new characters to my mystery family. Carol

I'm interested in reading her books in order...can anyone give me the exact order? Thanks!

I heard there are two series?

I was told to read the Hemlock Falls series. What's the other series like? And which is better? I like Female Amatuer Sleuths and am a big fan of Sue Grafton, Jill Churchill and Diane Mott Davidson, amongst some others. I'm not fond of Mary Higgins Clarke though. I'm readind a first time author now and love her first book...."Never Buried" by Edie Claire. The characters are fresh and alive. A fun light read.

I recently picked up "A Dash of Death" and "A Pinch of Poison" at the bookstore, because I read the back of the books and learned that the protagonists were two sisters who run an inn. I thought that was great, and I couldn't wait. I finished "A Dash of Death" and liked it, though I would like to see more of an introductory thing done with each book, as the story seemed to just pick up from a prior one. I know it's a series, but I like it when series writers repeat themselves a little bit with every new book, so that new readers can get a good feel for the characters' history, past adventures, etc. Still, I did enjoy it immensely, and am looking forward to reading more.

Claudia, It's great hearing from you and I truly appreciate the opportunity to tell you how much I really enjoy the Meg and Quill series. They are very real, likeable characters and the imagery in your books is wonderful. I feel like I am in upstate New York. I felt like I was walking the through the streets of town. Thank you for the hour or so each day when I can be someplace other than here. It's definitely better than Calgon. Carol

Has anyone read Bishop's new series? The first book is The Case of the Roasted Onion. I recently picked it up, but haven't yet had a chance to read it. It will be my first foray into the world of Bishop, and I just thought I'd get everyone else's thoughts regarding this new series. I love the fact that it's all about a veterinarian.
