The premise of this book is unique and the mystery aspect is well done. So are the minor characters. What disappointed me was the treatment of two themes: the reality of married life and Ellie's descent into anorexia. Like anorexics in general, Ellie believes you can never be too thin and interprets every comment about her eating as saying she is still too fat. But beyond these comments, Ellie's perceptions are never challenged by reality. She has boundless energy, she hasn't developed the terrible open sores that betray malnutrition, and there is no resolution of this theme by book's end. Ellie is less naive about happy ever after by the end of the book, but we don't get much insight into Ben's character. He's still a bit stereotypical divinely handsome, stunning green eyes, rigid hero of the Regency novel.

The second book in the Ellie Haskell series. I read this book for the backstory. I was disappointed as I found the format difficult to understand. The mishaps at the wedding and reception were not funny for me. The conflict between the wedding and funeral was used to
being new characters into stories was intriguing.
Ellie is attending a funeral and the implication was it was Ben's. At this point, the Tramwell Sisters of the Flowers Detective Agency enter the story. They inform Ellie about the Widow's Club and asked her to help to find the Leader. Ben's Mother has left his Father and is missing. After several twists and turns the later part of the story flows smoothly and is easy to read. Will Ellie find the Founder of the Widow's Club before Ben is killed?The Widow's Club

Sorry but as much as I wanted to love this book, I just couldn't. Dorothy Cannell's first book, The Thin Woman, was outstanding!! I was hoping that this would be the same but was very disappointed. It seemed to just ramble on and on and on until I couldn't read anymore, turned to the last chapter, and read what happened in the end. So, I didn't read over half the book because it became so tedious and "cluttered" with boring details. So sorry but this is just how I felt about this book. Really, really hoped for something better.

Such a disappointment. The first book in the series was quite delightful but this one was not. The manner in which it was written was so confusing that it quickly wasn't worth the effort to try to figure it out. Struggled awhile, found the Widows Club kind of interesting but just gave up. Too bad.

I read this book years ago & loved it. I couldn't remember the title & finally found it at the library. The author has gotten the character of Ellie Simons down pat .... so very real Noiw that I know who the author is I am starting to read the rest of her books

ellie and Ben. Interesting personalities and unusual relationship. I LIKED the detective agency with their quirky methods. And spunky actions.
  • Malanim
Such a wonderfully scrambled plot, all served up in the recent past with humor, romance, longing, discord, murder(!), strong female characters, snark(!), pseudo(?) dungeons, good guys, bad girls(!), loyalty, envy, sharp thinking , and surprises. One really gets one’s money’s worth with Dorothy Cannell.
I enjoyed the first book in the series enough to read the second. Big mistake. Disorganized plot that dragged on and on and on; character motivations were either unexplained or made no sense even when explained; and the ending was unbelievable past any ability of mine to suspend my disbelief.
