    3.5 Stars A fun little cozy that sees two retired sisters visiting a hotel that formerly belonged to their grandparents in a skiing resort town in West Virginia. They are hoping to find the whereabouts of two Monet paintings they believe to be in the hotel, but soon after they arrive their hostess is murdered. The two intrepid sisters then go about snooping in the hope of finding the murderer, soon suspecting everyone staying at the hotel at one point or another.

I found this to be an easy read, non-taxing, and what the book didn't have in the way of plot it certainly made up for in charm. One to curl up with on a winter's day.

    Moon Signs is a ""sweet" little mystery story told from the point of view of an old woman (my age!). I guess the best thing about the character is that I could not identify with her -- seriously, acrylic sweaters and polyester pants? It's a quick read with murders to be solved and several possible suspects -- but it's not one of my favorites.

    Likable characters. Reasonable plot-line. Kept my interest in wanting to find out the ending. But, the dialogue felt stiff and unnatural. Emotions fell flat.

    What an adorable book! Such a fun read with mystery, suspense, a little romance and so much more. Very short read (121 pages). Recommended for everyone!

    Sisters Kathleen and Andrea are delighted to be visiting their niece Maggie who works at the Alpenhof Hotel near a ski resort in West Virginia. The hotel once belonged to their grandparents who allegedly owned two Monet paintings that disappeared over the years. Kathleen is determined to find the paintings, however they receive a cold welcome from the hotel’s co-owner Olga. When Olga is murdered it becomes clear that none of the hotel staff are grief stricken, including her brother and co-owner Sisters Kathleen and Andrea are delighted to be visiting their niece Maggie who works at the Alpenhof Hotel near a ski resort in West Virginia. The hotel once belonged to their grandparents who allegedly owned two Monet paintings that disappeared over the years. Kathleen is determined to find the paintings, however they receive a cold welcome from the hotel’s co-owner Olga. When Olga is murdered it becomes clear that none of the hotel staff are grief stricken, including her brother and co-owner Stefan. Moon Signs is a cozy with fairly slow pace. Although the sisters are definite amateurs when it comes to crime solving, they do have some skill. While Kathleen is imaginative Andrea is confident and resourceful. There is even a hint of romance in the air between Andrea and the handsome sheriff. As I’ve found with many cozies lately, a lot of unnecessary detail bogs the story down rather than moves it forward. It doesn’t have to be that way with this subgenre of mysteries. Masters like Agatha Christie certainly didn’t do this. Secondary characters could have become more plausible and intriguing suspects had they been given more than superfluous, mildly mysterious roles. Entire paragraphs could have been cut while other characters developed to create a tighter, more compelling story. I have to say, though, that the descriptions of the cold and the scenery made me feel the chill. Given that skiing is a prevalent part of this story, fans of the sport might enjoy this one.

    2.5 stars, but I rounded up because I've read much worse. It's a cozy mystery, but even then it's overly simplistic throughout, both in the characters and in the unnecessary repetition. A scene happens and is then described immediately in detail by one character to another. Still, at least the characters are generally likable. 2.5 stars, but I rounded up because I've read much worse.

    now i am hooked. This was such a great, easy and creative book. i was hooked after the first page. The characters were easy to fall in love with and follow, along with the story. the author made the mental visions so easy and vivid of the surroundings and the characters actions felt so real. i would highly recommend this author and this book.

    2.5* Not the best mystery there is but I adored the sisters. There were times when I couldn't help but ask if it was possible for a 60-year old woman to do certain things but I guess if it were a healthy old woman, it was possible! 2.5* Not the best mystery there is but I adored the sisters.

    This was a pretty good, quick cozy. Set during a cold winter in the mountains of West Virginia. In some ways it may have been a little simplistic in that I had a good idea, pretty quickly, who were guilty, but it was still a decent read. Rating 3.5*.

    This is a murder mystery set in the mountains of West Virginia at a ski resort; two sixty-something sisters assist the small police force in solving the case. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the West Virginia mountains in winter as well as the delightful old hotel they stayed in. It had originally been a boarding house for loggers in the early 20th century, so it was rustic and sparse. It reminded me of the Red Mountain Lodge and Elk Mountain Lodge in Marble, Colorado and Crested Butte This is a murder mystery set in the mountains of West Virginia at a ski resort; two sixty-something sisters assist the small police force in solving the case.

The dishes had a black bear motif as well as the paintings in each of the rooms. Helen Haught Fanick really did a good job of creating her setting. The murder mystery itself was a bit predictable.

    I am not sure how I felt about this story. For most of the book I really didn't like Andrea who was seen as the one who knew everything. I did like the story line though it did seem to be slow paced. There were lots of suspects and so on and the side stories of the paintings. The other characters grew on me and I am glad there might be a love interest. I am not sure how I felt about this story.

    I loved the writing in this novel. Here are two retired senior sisters who take a winter vacation to look for paintings that were mentioned in a document. They go to a ski resort that was owned by a relative. One sister is a little on the nosy side. The adventure starts when the sisters discover a body on the first night at the ski resort. Could the paintings they search for have anything to do with the murder? This is a great who-done-it murder mystery novel that has interesting characters and I loved the writing in this novel.

    Retired sisters, Andrea Flynn and Kathleen Williamson are not typical retirees, but then who are these days? Having heard that their grandparents had bought two paintings by Monet at the turn-of-the-century, they decide to go to the hotel that they used to own to see if they can find out whatever happened to the paintings. They found murder rather than Monet, and while the story was entertaining enough, it was lacking something, not to mention seemed prejudicial against “foreigners”.

Kathleen tells the story, and although she is only 60, she makes you think that she is a lot older, a typical fussy older lady, more like 80 than a widow of 60 years. Her sister, Andrea, 64, is a retired schoolteacher who seems to be more with it although they enjoy each other’s company. I needed to read a book set in a hotel and this fit the bill. I won’t read anymore by this author, though.

    Really enjoyed a mystery with women my age Most books are full of young people which is fun to read...like taking a trip back in time. I immerse myself in a book and feel I am there. I love romance ,mystety,supernatural, make believe, science fiction: you name it, I love it. This is about two older sisters who want to find two miners that their grandparents supposedly bought. Their grandparents owned a hotel years ago and they went to check it out and see if maybe the pictures might be there.

    I'm pretty sure the reason I wasn't a huge fan of this one was mostly because of the genre, not because of the writing. I don't think I'm a fan of the cozy mystery genre. To me it seemed like a couple of somewhat older women who were being very nosy. The mystery was a bit boring to me, and the ending was just so-so. It was only "ok" for a book. I didn't hate it, but a weak mystery starring nosy old women is just not my taste I guess.

    This is a fun mystery that I used to "cleanse my palette" between to more in-depth books. I recommend that you read this book in the same way. I have recently read the phrase "cozy mystery" and I think it applies here. Not too taxing, not bloody or gross, just a nice quiet hotel and ski area. Enjoy it for fun, as I will enjoy the next book in the series when I need a cleanser! This is a fun mystery that I used to "cleanse my palette" between to more in-depth books.

    This simple who-dun-it was a fun read. The characters are a bit flat and the story fairly predictable. The secondary story about the grandparents' ownership of the hotel and the mystery paintings is convenient and not developed enough. I would still read others in the series for simple entertainment.

    Unfortunately I knew from the beginning I would find this book a struggle because i found the narrators voice very very very irritating. On top of things the quality was at times horrific with the volume going up and down. The story was fine and about 60% of the way in I could focus more on the story with less annoyance.

    A delightful "cozy" mystery right down to the chocolate chip cookie recipe. Two "little old ladies" solving murders in a ski resort area of West Virginia.

    When retirees Kathleen Williamson and her sister Andrea hear from their niece Maggie that she found information on two paintings which might be Monets in the hotel she works in, and which was at one time owned by their grandparents, the sisters decide to visit the Canaan Valley, see their niece and look for those paintings. When they find the body of one of the hotel owners on their first evening, they both get entangled in the murder investigation.

When they find the body of one of the hotel owners on their first evening, they both get entangled in the murder investigation. An interesting plot, to be sure, but unfortunately the protagonists and the storytelling did not add up to make this a book that was either so full of suspense a reader did not want to stop reading, or - as was a possibility I had hoped for - full of humour on a hunt for clues by two elderly ladies. Kathleen, the narrator of this story, is only 60, but comes across much older from the way she portrays herself, and additionally gave me the impression of being shallow, set in her ways, scatterbrained, and distrustful of anything that was outside her comfort zone. Andrea, older by 4 years, is the more energetic one (and the more intelligent one?), but only gives her sister condescending looks, raised eyebrows and none of her thought processes in solving a murder. She also doesn't take the search for the paintings seriously, contrary to Kathleen who even ignores murder happening around them and is focused on the alleged Monets. So here we have a lot of sinister foreigners, a lot of suspicions against them (hey they are foreigners after all), a self-centered blinkered narrator who cannot focus on the important things, and other characters who appear in the story just to fill gaps in the narration, but don't have much to add - that is, I am sorry to say, how the story looked to me. The plot itself was not bad, and at least led to solving the murder in the end and finish the story. I don't think I will follow this series, though.

    Helen Haught Fanick created a nice duet in the sleuthing sisters of Kathleen Williamson (the narrator) and Andrea Flynn (the brains of the outfit). Sisters as different as night and day didn't strike me as odd and as the book moved along (at about the pace of a gentle snowfall, which is sort of appropriate) it struck me that perhaps Fanick was using Kathleen as a Doctor Watkins to Andrea's Sherlock Holmes (the book does begin with an epigraph by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle).

Had it gone that way, I would have been happy. But it didn't. Instead much of the action, especially the critical events, occur offstage. The narrator is mostly a wallflower who occasionally has a revealing conversation, but the mystery of who killed the co-owner of the resort where the sisters are staying is pretty much solved by others (sorry if I'm giving too much away). There were so many inconsistencies I lost track -- Andrea brought her laptop and seemed to be online getting information until suddenly she doesn't have a way to get online and they have to use their niece's computer to use the Internet... There's only one room with a phone and it belongs to a co-owner except when the sisters decide to make a call from their room, then then have a phone.... It was often confusing and frustrating. These are all problems that a good revision could have resolved, so it's too bad the book wasn't given that attention as it suffered too much from those issues.

    Mildly entertaining story of two sisters in their 60s, which was a nice change. Kathleen, the younger slightly ditzy one, is the narrator. She tends to rely on her older more logical sister Andrea much of the time. They visit a ski hotel formerly owned by their grandparents in West Virginia. Their niece works there as a skiing instructor, as do a man from their home town and his new wife (handyman and cleaner.)

The niece has found some old paperwork showing that a purchase was actually made, and Kathleen hopes they might still be in the hotel. Not long after they arrive they find the body of the unfriendly sister of the hotel owner, so they start looking for clues as well as paintings. Later, another hotel employee is killed, and all the hotel guests and even the neighbors are suspects. Some of it got a little repetitive with all the descriptions of the places they go to eat; and Kathleen's attempt to make a romance for Andrea and the local policeman was a bit silly. I got swamped by all the suspects and motives and didn't even try to figure out whodunit - and I doubt if I would have guessed correctly anyway! A fairly enjoyable read, but I feel no burning urge to buy the rest of the series.

    There is nothing wrong with this book if you like wholesome stories starring two sisters in their early 60's, sleuthing to find a murderer. Andrea is the older sister by a few years and a retired math teacher, never married. Kathleen is a bit younger and widowed and appears to have been sheltered and with no mind of her own. She is always referring to Andrea and is always hungry, cold, or somewhere in between. I read the book as a free selection of the month and enjoyed it.

Don't get me wrong, I am a senior but I like my books with sex and violence and humor. These ladies didn't do it for me.

    I enjoyed reading about women in their 60s navigating life after retirement or after losing a spouse. Andrea (single never married) and Kathleen (widow), her sister, travel to the hotel once owned by their grandparents in pursuit of different things; R&R for Andrea who will enjoy visiting with her niece or Kathleen's hunt for two precious Monet paintings. The author's depiction of the sisters, tying their hoods and holding on to each other as they maneuver through the snow was perfect.

Canaan Valley has become a popular ski destination for many people from the DC area. A good number of visitors are foreigners. Just like the new owners of Alpenhoff. Could there be a connection? Andrea and Kathleen become involved in the search for the killer and the connection. Andrea is more focused on the murder than Kathleen. Kathleen is more interested in finding the Monéts that the grandparents brought back from Paris. “Moon Signs” is a fun, cozy read. Along with the sleuthing there are two separate romance threads. This is the first in the series.
