Of course, it will take a while to determine whether Berg can make such a niche business thrive in a pricey commercial district. She doesn't come off as your average retiree indulging naively in a small-business fantasy -- she acknowledges that she still has a lot to learn about running a bookshop. And if she's proactive about finding new customers and new ways to present her wares, that already puts her ahead of many other entrepreneurs in town.
Whatever happens, she's confident that she can bring a fresh perspective to the business.

There are some authors that are able to endow their characters with an accent and CeeCee James is one. The other characters were more fuzzy, sliding in and out of the story with very little impact. One of her first duties is overseeing a Comic-Con Convention at the hotel. Shortly after the convention starts, there is a disturbance in the main meeting room. With the help of Norman Olsen, owner of Olsen Studios which makes one of the games for the show, Maisie is able to restore peace and quiet. Later that day, Mr. Olsen is found dead in the hotel pool and the police suspect foul play.
Fortunately, the rest of the event runs fairly smoothly. During the initial setup, some of the equipment catches fire. Reacting quickly, Maisie grabs a fire extinguisher and puts it out. It turns out the fire was deliberately set.
Who killed Mr. Who started the equipment fire? Are the incidents related? Is somebody trying to sabotage Maisie in her new job? The characters are well developed and very believable. The story has a great pace. Aug 06, N. Moors rated it really liked it. Maisie Swenson has taken over as manager at a hotel in Florida, partly to take care of her Momma and basset hound, Bingo.

She writes mystery novels on the side but never expects to have to use her expertise to solve a real murder. Momma and the other secondary characters have interesting quirks; I love the pans rattling as Momma cooks. I didn't identify the real murderer which is a prerequisite for me in murder mysteries; I want it to be a mystery and not figure it out halfway through the book. This is the first book in a cozy murder series, so I'll be looking forward to reading the rest of Maisie's adventures. Oct 06, Barbara Hackel rated it really liked it.
Maisie is the manager at the Oceanside Hotel, a recent new job in which she was still proving herself to her boss. Kinda hard to do that when a murder, an arson attempt and large and often rowdy convention crowds keep rearing their ugly heads. Maisie came to Florida and took this job to be able to watch over her mother. Now it seems that job is harder and harder to do with all that is going on at the hotel.

I enjoyed this first book of the series, and getting to meet Momma as well as the other regular characters and of course Bingo.
The murder mystery was good. For me however, it seemed to suddenly race to the conclusion near the end, like time was up and the author just threw everything together to end the book. I would have liked a little more information as to why Maisie suddenly knew who the murderer was, what gave it away to her, etc.
Jun 12, S. Mallery rated it it was amazing. Right off the bat I was drawn into the story by its charming prose and the two loaded-with-appeal principal characters, Maisie and her mother. And to top things off, by making this well plotted story take place at a hotel, James has created an environment rife with lots of unborn possibilities for future books in this series. Definitely recommended! Apr 02, Gerri rated it it was amazing. I love a good mystery, and this author has produced a good one. Maisie Swenson is a new manager at a result hotel She's also presented with the death of a guest and although fearing for her job, she doesn't agree with the police when they arrest their suspect.
So she decides to dig a little and comes up with some information she thinks might be helpful to the case. Unfortunately, the real killer decides to dissuade her.

There are a lot of good cliffhanger chapters, fun characters, and red herrings galore. I wish it focused a little more on the Florida setting but it is mostly contained within the hotel where lead character Maisie works.

I read this for the Popsugar Challenge category "set in a hotel". It's first in a series, so a good part of the book is setting up the characters and the setting the hotel of course.
