Benni's 19-year-old stepson, Sam Ortiz, confides in her that he and his pregnant girlfriend, Bliss Girard, a rookie cop in the San Celina, Calif., police department, want to marry. Benni fears that her husband, Gabe Ortiz, the town's police chief, will disapprove--and that so will Bliss's socially and politically prominent family, the Browns. Benni isn't certain how to react when Lydia Ortiz, Sam's mother and Gabe's first wife, arrives to discuss the domestic crisis. Matters come to a head when the extended families dine together at the Browns' ancestral stronghold, Seven Sisters Ranch. The murder of Giles Norton, husband of another Brown offshoot and the son of prominent vintners, puts everyone at Seven Sisters at risk. A sheriff's department newcomer, Ford "Hud" Hudson, investigates the killing, and quickly pegs Benni as an unofficial assistant because of her reputation for nosiness and her connections to the case. The tenacious Hud constantly backs Benni into corners whenever she shows signs of wanting to wash her hands of the whole affair. In the end, Benni's own instincts drive her to dig out the long-hidden truth behind the deaths of four of the original seven Brown sisters, for whom the ranch was named. How this secret relates to the present tragedy provides the stunning climax to a compelling story of families torn apart by divided loyalties.… (mais)

Good one! ( )

Excellent entry in the series. Haunting, but with humour in the balance, and probably with a more realistic end than most cozy mysteries. This series just gets stronger with each book. ( )

A nice addition to the Benni Harper mystery series. ( )

Gabe's son, Sam, announces that his girlfriend, Bliss Girard, is
pregnant, they are in love, and they intend to be married. Bliss is
part of the very wealthy, very influential Brown family, and a member of
a social class that Benni has very little experience with. When the
Browns throw an engagement party for the young couple, both families
come together at the Seven Sisters Ranch to get to know each other. To
Benni's dismay, Gabe's ex-wife, Lydia, is included and tries to step
into her old role and nudge Benni right out of the picture. And to put
the icing on the cake, one of the members of the Brown family is shot to
death in the middle of the party when no one is looking. Gabe is
pre-occupied with his son and his ex-wife and the murder is outside his
jurisdiction anyway, and before she knows it, Benni is sucked into the
investigation by the new sheriff's deputy, Detective Ford Hudson, a
Texas Good Ol' Boy with a fatal charm. One way or the other, the
outcome of this case is going to change everyone concerned for the rest
of their lives.

This is the best book yet in this series. It's written with a lot more humor than the ones in the past, even though the subject matter is anything but humorous. I am getting to know Benni better and she is starting to flesh out into a multi-faceted real person. But, there was that typical lack of communication between her and Gabe that really gets under my skin. I wanted to reach in and slap some sense into her a couple of times, and I'm frustrated by the fact that the author makes a point of telling us that both Benni and Gabe have cell phones, but neither one of them ever seem to have enough sense to call the other one and let them know what is going on! They keep "missing each other" and playing phone tag on answering machines at home and at the office. Makes me wonder what the blazes they pay a cell phone bill for if they don't intend to ever use them! ( )
