Praise for the Claire Malloy Mystery Series "Joan Hess is one of the funniest people in the mystery world."-Margaret Maron, author of Slow Dollar "With her wry asides, Claire makes a most engaging narrator...the surprising denouement comes off with eclat."-Publishers Weekly "Joan Hess is seriously funny. Moreover, she is seriously kind as well as clever when depicting the follies, foibles, and fantasies of our lives. Viva Joan!"-Carolyn Hart, author of April Fool Dead "Joan Hess shares with P.G. Wodehouse an unmistakable comic voice and the ability to juggle a dizzying number of subplots. She has the remarkable ability to take caricatures and bring them to life and make us care about them in book after book."-M. D. Lake, author of Death Calls the Tune "Witty, ironic, and biting...Joan Hess has an unerring comedic instinct."-Bookpage "Joan Hess fans will find a winning blend of soft-core feminism, trendy subplots, and a completely irreverent style that characterizes both series and the sleuth, all nicely onstage." -Houston Chronicle "Breezy and delightful...Claire Malloy is one of the most engaging narrators in mystery." -The Drood Review "Definitely entertaining. Hess deftly sprinkles red herrings and odd characters throughout." -Library Journal on The Murder at the Mimosa Inn "Dear Miss Demeanor is great fun...Hess's poniard is tipped with subtle wit." -Chicago Sun Times "Hess's theme is a serious one, but she handles it with wit. Claire is an appealing character, and this is an engaging mystery for anyone who likes crime mixed with comedy." -Booklist on Roll Over and Play Dead 0 "Hess's style-that of a more worldly Erma Bombeck-rarely flags. Amiable entertainment with an edge."-Kirkus Reviews "Joan Hess is one funny woman."-Susan Dunlap
