"Innkeeper and irrepressible sleuth Judith McMonigle Flynn and cousin Renie face off against a cold-blooded killer in a beach community in this delightfully charming Bed-and-Breakfast mystery from USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Mary Daheim.With the holidays gone and Hillside Manor almost empty, Innkeeper Judith McMonigle Flynn has a bad case of the blues. A housesitting stint at her aunt and uncle's retirement home on Whoopee Island with cousin Renie seems like the ideal pick-me-up. Surrounded by retirees in the off-season sounds peaceful and pleasant--or so the duo thinks. But it isn't long before a dead body pops up in their vicinity. Not surprising in an area full of older folks--until they learn it wasn't a bad ticker that did in the victim, but a very sharp knife. With clouds of suspicion hovering over her and Renie, Judith reluctantly begins sleuthing--if only to prove they didn't commit the crime.But what she finds is puzzling. The victim reputedly didn't have an enemy in the world--except for the killer. Digging for clams and answers, the cousins discover that retirement can be deadly--at least among the eclectic, eccentric residents of Obsession Shores"-- Provided by publisher.

So who left the threatening note in the kitchen?
Who left the handwritten sign with the skull and crossbones the cousins saw turning into subdivision owned by aunt and uncle?

If you like "cosy" murder mysteries, you will probably enjoy Clam Wake although Mary Daheim's humour may not appeal to everyone. Having read most of the previous instalments of the Bed and Breakfast series, meeting up with Judith and Renie again is like catching up with old friends.
