    I'm afraid I found this book a bit boring, even though I liked the main characters and the set-up of the story. The plot is quite uneventful, unfortunately, and I had a hard time finishing the book

    Jane Jeffrey's oldest son is growing up. He is graduating from high school and working part time at a local deli to earn some money. Jane thinks the only thing she needs to worry about Mike is that he be careful while driving the truck she gave him as a graduation present. But when obnoxious attorney Robert Stonecipher is murdered at the opening party for the deli, she's not sure she wants Mike working there. But he insists he'll be okay and Jane relents. When there is a second murder, Jane can' [...]

    I got this at a book sale and it was the first book I'd read by this author. I had a difficult time beginning the book and keeping the various characters straight. I could see this is called a Jane Jeffry book, but Jane and her best friend are equally used throughout the book and almost either could be the main character. I know sometimes a series can feel repetitive by re-introducing the main characters, but in this case the book wasn't written very well to be the first book a reader picks in t [...]

    Arrogant, presumptuous, pretentious and infuriating are just a few adjectives that come to mind while trying to describe lawyer Robert Stonecipher. Is it any wonder that no one is upset or surprised when his dead body is discovered under an overturned rack of hams at the grand opening of a neighborhood deli…. an establishment whose opening he had done his best to prevent. Within a day, another death occurs. Following in Stonecipher’s footsteps in death as she had in life is his assistant, Em [...]

    Silence of the Hams is one of the very best Jane Jeffry mysteries. It has tons of stuff going on with Mike's graduation, multiple deaths and the resiting investigation. A shockingly unexpected killer was almost just an added bonus with so much interesting back story.The graduating seniors are treated to a mandatory school-sponsored post-graduation party. The entire thing sounded fabulous, from the decorations in each themed area to the prizes each kid won. Jane's mother-in law and brother-in-law [...]

    This is another of the Jane Jeffry mysteries. Jane and her neighbor Shelly again help the police solve a murder in the neighborhood. Who wouldn't have wanted to murder the loud mouth, bigoted attorney Robert Stonecipher. But when his paralegal is found murdered too wellQuick little mystery reads that are pretty good at least till the ends. Why do writers have such a hard time wrapping up well???

    One of many fine Jane jeffry mysteries. It has a nice twist in the middle, and a nice surprise ending. I particularly enjoy the characterization of Jane, suburban mom and widow, who has a best-friend relationship with her next door neighbor, Shelley, who is confident and assertive. The pair make a bit of Holmes and Watson duo, although Holmes and Holmes would be a better depiction. A nice summer read.

    Why did I buy this book? It's hard for me to get past the silly title, and I've started reading it three times now, only to be continually distracted by better books to read. So I'm going to retire it & call it a lost cause-- it hasn't captured my interest, though I've read about half of it. I feel bad, like I'm abandoning someone's baby.

    I gave Jill Churchill another chance, and this Jane Jeffry mystery was much better than the last I read (the perfectly dreadful Accidental Florist). I enjoy a cozy mystery, and Churchill mixes humor into her entertaining (though lightweight) plot.

    Carrie
    This is a mom's mystery novel. I love the way the soccer mom Jane Jeffry helps her investigator boyfriend solve the mystery through gossip and nosy conversation. It's fun.

    I like 'light' but this was perhaps ultra-light!

    Rhonda
    a cute cozy - one of many in a series. nothing in the way of character depth, but a cute, quick read.

    Kayla
    Favourite in the series so far.

    Mary Newcomb
    Two mysterious deaths seem oddly linked. Jane and Shelley help sort it all out and take on a new sidekick.

    Rhonda
    Not as good as the others to this point, but I still enjoyed it when I just needed to chill.

    Dharia Scarab
    Second reading, just as good.

    Rebecca
    what the hey, they're fun.

    Celestial
    It was just something I picked up in a gift shop to keep me occupied, turned out to be a great book. I look forward to reading the rest of the Jane Jeffry series.

    Jennifer
    The 7th book in the Jane Jeffry mystery series. I thought this one was a little weak - but it didn't stop me from continuing on in the series.

    Martina Kopel
    Another good book. Mike graduates, gets job and a truck. Shelley and Jane and Mel solve another murder but with a twist with two bodies.

    Alice
    Wop-wop . . . Not much to make this interesting at all.

    Gail
    I'm back to reading after a year off - not something I'm proud of :( I'd forgotten how much I liked Jill Churchill's books. Looking forward to reading more.

    Heather
    Cute if you're into crime-solving soccer moms. Commits the sin of withholding a clue from the reader.

    Dianna
    I found this book to be a good story line but the events to be few and far between. Easy read but not a "can't put it down" book.

    Kyrie
    Not my favorite. Mike goes to work for a new deli and an attorney is killed by a falling rack of hams. I just didn't care that the guy died or who did it.

    Marti
    Passed on to me by Mom.

    Crystal Miller
    It was a fun quick read

    Elaine
    Easy, relaxing, and fun to read with another of her clever titles. Don't expect a philosophically deep investigation of anything. It's just a good read.

    Helen
    cozy with good plot
