    Another first book in another older series by the Cat in the Stacks author. I liked this better than either of the other early series even if I got a bit lost in the bridge

    This is the first book of the Bridge Club Mystery Series.I went into our local “Dollar General” store and found this on the turn style rack for meerly $1.25. I was shocked that an authours hard work had been downsized to that amount and new I might add. Not I love to find cheap books at library sales and yardsales, just whereever I can find them. But to find a brand new book for so cheap was like stealing.Genre: Fiction / Bridge players / Detective / Mystery /From the moment I read on the ba [...]

    I finished On The Slam by Honor Hartman aka Dean James. As you might have guessed I really enjoy this authors writings regardless of the nom de plum he uses for any particular series.This is the 2nd book in this series that I've read and from what I understand there are only two. Too bad I wasn't Honor Hartman's publisher! We would have had many more in this Bridge Club Mystery series.It seems that as soon as I get into page oneI'm right at home with Emma and Sophie. We are just settling down fo [...]

    I have read the two other series written by Dean James/Miranda James/Honor Hartman and enjoyed every book. I have recommended them to my few cozy reading friends, they were so good. I finally got to this series under the name of Honor Hartman, A Bridge Club Mystery series.On the Slam is another delightful cozy mystery. I used to play Bridge years ago, along with several other card games, but I don’t know anyone who plays anymore. Reading this quick, fun cozy brought it all back for me. I actua [...]

    This was a good murder mystery with the running theme of a bridge club throughout. Emma Diamond, a new widow, moves to live closer to her childhood and lifelong friend. It is a lovely neighborhood and she is happy learning there is a Bridge club group. Until she meets Janet McGreevey, the one that no one seems to like but tolerates due to her position with the Home Owners Association. Emma is there less than a week, when she is invited to her first bridge game. It is a little tense as Emma is ve [...]

    Rescued this from a recycling bin to show my husband as a joke, and ended up reading it more or less accidentally. He was all mad about some of the bridge in it (specifically counting points for a void--seriously, he thought that hard about it) andMe: This book is not for you, or anyone you know.Him: Who is it for?Me: Beginners, maybe? Orlook, if you just moved into a retirement community and one of the other widows gave it to you as a housewarming present, and invited you to bridge as a way to [...]

    This was an enjoyable read --- the characters were fun, true to human nature, a few eccentric – making for a typical “coffee clutch” neighborhood. They almost all enjoy playing bridge and do it often --- when one player (not the most liked in the neighborhood) gets killed at her own Bridge Game set by someone poisoning her with peanuts --- the novel is very well written (and was glad when the author stopped explaining Bridge in detail, as I don’t play bridge) – the story most believabl [...]

    Although I know next to nothing about bridge I enjoyed this story. I have already read the 2nd book in this series so was slightly familiar with the characters and enjoyed reading about how the ladies all met. Kind of makes me wish I had neighbors who are also friends that could "pop in" and out of my kitchen for coffee and card games. A satisfying mystery with a story that actually kept me guessing til the end.

    Once again Honor Hartman aka Jimmie Ruth Evans, Dean James,& Miranda James wins me over with a cozy set in the south. This one takes place in Houston and stars Emma a newly widowed lady who has moved to Houston to live next door to her best friend. Within days of being there she meets the head of the HOA and then the head is killed leading Emma and her BFF to try and track down the killer that resides within them.

    I loved them both. I used to play bridge and this wanted me to do it again. Murder and cards! What a lot of fun! I was worried I might not like it but no worry! The characters were people I would love to be friends with and the story moved along at a good pace. Unusual and enjoyable I would suggest it to anyone! I've read both and can't wait for there to be another in this series!
