    This title has Emma as the main character Sarah and Max are pretty much off stage for this book, just stepping in with suggestions and help here and there Theonia also paid a pretty big role The new cast of characters are delightful Vincent, the loyal caretaker and ferociously loving father, the two girls, Sandy and her friend, and Sandy s brother As well as Bubbles, the cook I suppose his character would not be found much anysince a lot of affectionate fun is poked at his speech pro This title has Emma as the main character Sarah and Max are pretty much off stage for this book, just stepping in with suggestions and help here and there Theonia also paid a pretty big role The new cast of characters are delightful Vincent, the loyal caretaker and ferociously loving father, the two girls, Sandy and her friend, and Sandy s brother As well as Bubbles, the cook I suppose his character would not be found much anysince a lot of affectionate fun is poked at his speech problem The guests to the island are not nearly so pleasant Most of the book is Emma feeling depressed and worried what is next for her in life She finds her new mission on the last few pages of the book I rather wonder if the author wasn t having similar problems or had a friend with similar problems since it got a lot of focus in the story The mystery itself was rather weird in many ways since it was created on the ferry ride to the island where all further events took place Actually, now that I think about it, the author used the same concept in at least one prior Kelling Bittersohn mystery, where something was added to the possessions of the main character, rather than stolen Again, this isof a 2.5 in many ways, but I do enjoy Emma as a character so I m willing to give this a break This is the last title I have owned and is following the others into recycling I definitely need the spacethan I need this series I ve enjoyed whiling away my bad cold with this series, though Now, back to life.and the library books that are due soon

    Not having read any other book in this series, the mentioning of characters related to characters was confusing I think in order to figure out who the author was talking about these books should probably be read in order.Some of the dialogue was meandering and, quite frankly, boring I ended up skipping over some of it in order to get back to the story, which was a pretty good one The isolated island setting was well done and the characters were vivid I didn t see the resolution coming, which Not having read any other book in this series, the mentioning of characters related to characters was confusing I think in order to figure out who the author was talking about these books should probably be read in order.Some of the dialogue was meandering and, quite frankly, boring I ended up skipping over some of it in order to get back to the story, which was a pretty good one The isolated island setting was well done and the characters were vivid I didn t see the resolution coming, which is always a good thing

    Another good one Aunt Emma is on her way to Pocapuc Island to fill in hostess for her sick friend, who is expecting a gaggle of artists of various sorts to tenant the cottages at her home on the island While dozing on the ferry, Emma s gladstone bag is stolen It s full of junk jewelry left over from an Iolanthe production, which she intends to repair and refurbish She also feels as if she s been drugged The bag is recovered from the men s room by a man who turns out to be one of the prospec Another good one Aunt Emma is on her way to Pocapuc Island to fill in hostess for her sick friend, who is expecting a gaggle of artists of various sorts to tenant the cottages at her home on the island While dozing on the ferry, Emma s gladstone bag is stolen It s full of junk jewelry left over from an Iolanthe production, which she intends to repair and refurbish She also feels as if she s been drugged The bag is recovered from the men s room by a man who turns out to be one of the prospective tenants in fact, all the tenants seem to be either on board or waiting for the boat to the island Once they are settled in, a mysterious scuba diver turns up, and later turns up dead Emma discovers a valuable diamond necklace has been stashed in her bag along with the paste jewels, so she wisely puts it into the safe Several people, including Emma, get coshed on the head, and Emma is getting angry Max is laid up with broken bones, but he sends Cousin Thelonia out to help There are a number of fun characters, as well as evil ones, in this story A very enjoyable read

    Funny how memory works I ve read this book, several times, years ago, and would have sworn that Sarah Kelling Bittersohn joined her Aunt Emma in this caper involving stolen jewels Not so Sarah, and her husband, art detective Max, only appear on the phone, talking Emma through her problems on a remote Maine island, with a few very strange people Emma is only there as a favor to an old friend, who had invited a group to stay in her guest cottages, but then becomes too ill to entertain them Th Funny how memory works I ve read this book, several times, years ago, and would have sworn that Sarah Kelling Bittersohn joined her Aunt Emma in this caper involving stolen jewels Not so Sarah, and her husband, art detective Max, only appear on the phone, talking Emma through her problems on a remote Maine island, with a few very strange people Emma is only there as a favor to an old friend, who had invited a group to stay in her guest cottages, but then becomes too ill to entertain them There s a probably spurious Russian count, an historian, an artist, an illustrator, a writer, and a psychic, most of whom are looking for pirate treasure And then there s the staff, including an ex con who is unwilling to yield his secrets There s one person on the island, however, that Emma doesn t know about

    Early Bird Book Deal Despite the near total lack of the series main characters, this may be my favourite installment Emma has been a joy since she was introduced, and I just didn t miss Sarah and Max My only real issue is in the denouement Emma says simply that she can explain everything, having made no hints or comments that would have suggested she does have the answers, and the culprit immediately whacks her on the head, jumps through a window, and tries to leap onto a badly constructe Early Bird Book Deal Despite the near total lack of the series main characters, this may be my favourite installment Emma has been a joy since she was introduced, and I just didn t miss Sarah and Max My only real issue is in the denouement Emma says simply that she can explain everything, having made no hints or comments that would have suggested she does have the answers, and the culprit immediately whacks her on the head, jumps through a window, and tries to leap onto a badly constructed raft to escape the police Why wouldn t they wait a fewseconds to see if she actually knew something If it were going to be that easy, she could have just bluffed a couple days earlier and all would have been well

    What a novel idea pun intended A disparate group of individuals isolated together for some mysterious goings on.Well, it could have been a good book, starting with the idea, never mind it s so oft used, of the variety of strangers gathered, for whatever reason, and having even stranger events occur.And some of the individuals are rather likable, even if not well fleshed out.Then it s all made silly, even ruined for me, with the mystery s being solved by clairvoyance and all kinds of persona What a novel idea pun intended A disparate group of individuals isolated together for some mysterious goings on.Well, it could have been a good book, starting with the idea, never mind it s so oft used, of the variety of strangers gathered, for whatever reason, and having even stranger events occur.And some of the individuals are rather likable, even if not well fleshed out.Then it s all made silly, even ruined for me, with the mystery s being solved by clairvoyance and all kinds of personal information being supplied by telephone from people many miles away.Maybe this was just written on a bad day I thought Charlotte MacLeod was a better writer Ultimately this was merely a time waster, maybe OK for a cold or wet day in which a reader had absolutely nothing else to do

    The book is slower paced than the usual MacLeod mystery, perhaps because Sarah Max are only secondary characters communicating over the phone The high point, however, is Theonia getting some center stage action as well as Aunt Emma The characters are less whimsical and the situations almost realistic in this book The book is slower paced than the usual MacLeod mystery, perhaps because Sarah Max are only secondary characters communicating over the phone The high point, however, is Theonia getting some center stage action as well as Aunt Emma The characters are less whimsical and the situations almost realistic in this book

    This is the Kelling another marvelous aunt of Sarah s, Theonia Kelling and author MacLeod s tongue in cheek writing style and we have a winner, here This is the Kelling Bittersohn book I like best so far, due entirely to the charms of the splendid Emma Kelling aunt of our heroine Sarah, and a formidable woman in her own right Throw in a very cool psychic another marvelous aunt of Sarah s, Theonia Kelling and author MacLeod s tongue in cheek writing style and we have a winner, here

    It s a light simple mystery that really doesn t feature Sarah and Max as much as it does Aunt Emma I get a kick out of these cozies with ll these New England rich people and their lifestyle of that s how it s always been done Kind of a New England version of an Agatha Christie, set 50 years later.

    When going through the shelves in the library I like to pick up something that I have never read, never heard of and looks interesting This was just that Believe it was written in the 80 s and the author wrote several books Going try another one.
