Leaving the Hillside manor in capable hands, bed-and-breakfast hostess Judith McMonigle heads north to Vancouver's Hotel Clovia with her irrepressibly voracious cousin Renie for a pre-Thanksgiving getaway. But when an addled and impoverished popcorn vendor is murdered -- along with his foul-mouthed pet parakeet -- a local copper's suspicious gaze settles on the two visiting Americans. The cousins, in turn, suspect one of the "Sacred Eight" -- an odd-duck assortment of glamorous showbiz glitterati currently gathered at the historic hotel. And unless Judith and Renie can pluck a killer from the secretive, star-studded group, their geese will be thoroughly cooked in short order!

The formula for this series seems to involve the cousins, Judith and Renie and Judith's old flame, Joe Flynn, in an enclosed situation. In this second book in the Bed and Breakfast series, the cousins go to Vancouver just before Thanksgiving, so the murder has to be solved, so they can leave on Wednesday in order to get home to host relatives and cook dinner. Their reservations get messed up, but not to worry, they meet old schoolmates who invite them to use a room they have reserved as part of a group reservation. There is a police labor strike, so our heroines pull in Joe Flynn and his brother as well as several relatives who are conveniently placed to get the clues they need to get home in time. The clues were sufficiently misleading to make the solution hard to guess. A good cozy read.
