    Book #5 of the Benni Harper series gets the suspects together at the annual Thanksgiving roundup at the Ramsey Ranch Because there's a women and western art festival going on in town some women artists are also invited to the ranch to observe and one of them is found dead Benni tries hard to stay out of the investigation but is unable to do so because if she did there wouldn't be a story These are fun fast reads that have fun characters some arts crafts some mystery and a dangerous situation for the heroine The characters are evolving and Grandma Dove gets a love interest as the famous photographer Isaac Lyons sweeps into town and catches her eye Benni is sometimes an annoying character because she predictably does unwise things but she's like a friend that you warn against a course of action and then have to sit back and watch her do it anyway So annoying but endearing

    I like Earlene Fowler novels which contain a little romance a little intrigue a little who done it mystery and a lot of close knit family and friends This was my least favorite of her uilt top books however It seemed to me like the whole novel was full of one liners and cliches I did enjoy it though and would probably give it a 3 12 if that was possible Erlene Fowler is a 3 time Agatha Award nominee and her stories make you feel like you are watching the Murder She Wrote television show Her Heroine is Benni Harper a 30 something ex cowgirl and uilter but the story doesn't delve into uilting much at all She is always getting involved in solving the town's murders and getting herself in trouble every time

    Dove In the Window is a murder mystery set in the small western town of San Celina Benni Harper is married to the police chief and can't help but meddle in local mysteries despite the many criminals threats and dangers that come her way She's like a modern day rough on the edges cowgirl Miss Marple But it's no Agatha Christie masterpiece The plot of the book seems like it takes awhile to pick up and then feels a bit rushed towards the end but the colorful characters and intimate setting easily make up for it Dove in the Window is a puzzling murder mystery with a refreshing small Western town and big hearted cowgirls and good ol' cowboys that you are bound to fall in love with by the end of the book

    The characters are largely realistic in that you want to poke each of them with a sharp stick at least once per book The mystery seemed almost an afterthought in this one which works for me in this series

    Benni Harper as the protagonist of what one guesses should be called a “cozy” series amateur sleuth usually female prone to intellectual and instinctual investigation that physical confrontation couldn’t avoid a crime scene if she tried This time the crime scene is thrust upon her and no matter how she would like to stay out of it she feels an obligation—to duty and to her ability to give up a significant grieving in her emotional life—to keep probing around the edges as though the mystery is an egg stuck to a skillet when one is still trying to save the yolk Earlene Fowler has a tremendous ability to turn her fictionalized San Luis Obispo San Celina in the novels into a sleepier little town than I remember it being Of course the fictional town seems almost as full of murders as modern Chicago In the series of novels the per capita homicide might even surpass that of Chicago This time the problems encountered by Benni involve her former brother in law her late husband’s sibling and a celebration called “Heritage Days” with all sorts of events to support local charities Interesting Your friendly neighborhood reviewer marched in the La Fiesta Days parade in San Luis Obispo and that parade was part of a celebration to help support the historic Mission San Luis Obispo for which the town was named So this novel resonated in ways that it might not for the average readerSan Luis Obispo is not a bucolic town by any stretch of the imagination but there are vineyards and ranches all around it San Celina is also surrounded by vineyards and ranches but the descriptions are far rural than how one would describe the real Central Coastal town This mystery probably fools the reader on a couple of occasions As one narrows the list of suspects and recognizes the obvious red herrings there is a tendency to focus on the right idea but end up with the wrong culprit For those interested in the romantic interests of the series Fowler introduces her cousin Emory who played a significant role in the antecedent title in the series Benni had made him a promise she couldn’t possibly keep could she? and the attempt to fulfill that promise brings the most romantic tension one can remember since Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd played off their characters’ sexual tension in the Moonlighting television show This is a nice touch since it leaves Benni free to build a mature and solider relationship with her new husband the police chief The sub plot as to whether Benni is over her former marriage is also part of the suspense—even though one can easily anticipate the result Let’s just say that it was appropriate and bodes well for future “episodes” unlike the Moonlighting episode for which everyone was waitingThere are mysterious characters sordid secrets action scenes than usually expected in a “cozy” and heartfelt moments For anyone who has enjoyed these mysteries before Dove in the Window will be a five star return to San Celina Yet Fowler builds and matures her characters so wonderfully that it might be a three star visit for those who would pick this up first

    This was the third book I've read recently having to do with art the first two being Wash Fold and Die and The Gardner Heist The True Story of the World's Largest Unsolved Art Theft so that was an interesting coincidence Anyway this one took a while to get going the first chapter was well on 30 pages and introduced the Heritage Festival around which all the events take place but it was a well crafted story view spoilerShelby and her boyfriend Kip are ultimately killed by Greer another photographer She has been rustling cattle since her ranch is going under and Shelby captures it accidentally on photo Greer finds out and tells Kip hence why Greer kills them both But she's discovered by Benni who is working with Shelby's step grandfather Isaac Lyons a 79 year old photographer who seems sweet on Dove Benni's grandmotherI could do without Benni's and Gabe's fights but Fowler did temper that a bit in this installment I do want to know what happens with Elvia and Benni's smooth talking Southern cousin Emory At the end he has decided to stay in San Celina to continue to woo her Hopefully she sees that he's a good guy since I enjoyed his character hide spoiler

    I've read this book at least twice now as I have it in both paperback and on my Kindle I love visiting San Celina and being with Benni Harper and all her family and friends The characters are real and there is always to the story than the mystery in the Benni Harper books In this book #5 Benni's grandmother Dove develops a love interest Unlike other popular books that I enjoy by the way there is no interminable love triangle or non ending sexual tension to keep your interest Instead there is the interplay between people over issues of ambition and art I really love this book and all the books in the series There is a chance that in a few years I will revisit it again

    One of my favorite series as it mixes characters a little murder a little art and it is based in an imaginary city that is modeled after my place of birth This is a great part of California and it heightens my enjoyment of the books Benni is great a survivor who marries a man who has also had his troubles and the two learn to trust and love and find joy in the world while fighting crime Of all the supporting characters her grandmother Dove is the most heartwarming not only does she take care of everything and everyone she falls in love herself a reminder that the elderly ain't dead
