    1. 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 dangerou [...]


    2. 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 quilt 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 1/2 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 [...]


    3. "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 se [...]


    4. 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.


    5. Benni Harper, as the protagonist of what one guesses should be called a “cozy” series (amateur sleuth, usually female, prone more 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 [...]


    6. In diesem fünften Buch steht das große Heritage Days Fest in San Celina bevor und Benni hat daher viel Arbeit mit ihrem Museum. Außerdem steht auf der Ranch der Ramseys aus diesem Anlass eine große Feier bevor, zu der alle Familienmitglieder, Freunde und Bekannte eingeladen sind. So auch Bennis Ex-Schwager Wade, der Benni grollt, dass sie so schnell nach dem Tod seines Bruders wieder geheiratet hat und daher auch ständig mit Gabe aneckt. Auch eine der Künstlerinnen, die Fotografin Shelby s [...]


    7. F/M Benni Harper Ortiz who has lived on a California ranch all of her life, is an organizer of her town’s Heritage Festival combined with celebration of Western women artists. Her second husband of 2 years is the chief of police of the town. Her grandparents own a cattle ranch just outside of town and are hosting the town, plus a family reunion for a barbque and calf branding, a family tradition. Her first husband’s brother, Wade, from Tx and her step cousin, Emory,from AR unexpectantly show [...]


    8. 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 spoiler)[Shelby and her boyfriend, Kip, are ultimately killed by Greer, [...]


    9. Book 5 in the Benni Harper seriesShelby is a freelance photographer who is a member of the artist's co-op where Benni works. Shelby ends up dead due to blunt force trauma to the back of her head. Since her body was found outside, is it murder or an accident?Greer, another artist at the co-op, is the one who "accidentally" murders Shelby. Shelby had taken some photos of farm life for a book she was compiling. Some of the photos shows Greer's pickup truck and trailer loading up cattle belonging to [...]


    10. 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 more 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. [...]


    11. Benni has been happily married to Chief Ortiz of the San Celina, CA. police force. Benni’s family has a large ranch just outside of town. Where there is a huge gathering of friends and family for the Thanksgiving holiday and the town arts/crafts fair the next week. However, a young girl is murdered on the ranch and Benni’s former brother-in-law, Wade, is suspected of being the murderer (her first husband died in a car crash.) Benni can’t help but try to prove his innocence. --- This one is [...]


    12. 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 [...]


    13. With a young artist killed on her family's ranch and one of her relatives suspected, cow-girl and museum curator Benni Harper sets out to find who the person was that cut down the life of the rising artist. I really enjoy the Benni Harper mystery series. Benni is interesting and likable and so are the storylines and characters, plus it is interesting to see what life is like on a Western California ranch. I'm looking forward to the next book.


    14. I was going to skip this one, but I ended up re-reading it anyway. I liked the addition of Emory and Isaac Lyons to the characters and again enjoyed the interaction between Benni and Gabe more then the story. Benni always seems to be in charge of some festival or anotherI swear that town must have a festival every other week the way these books are writtennitely at least once a month which seems a little excessive to me, but I guess it's a plot theme that the author enjoys.


    15. Reread April 2013, November 2014 as I reread my way through the Benni Harper series. This is one of my favorite books, as it introduces some of my favorite characters in the series, such as Emory, Isaac, and D-Daddy Boudroux, and we see a lot of other characters I love, like Elvia and Dove.This series is all about the characters to me, the mystery is almost secondary since i'm rereading and know who did it.


    16. During a family reunion, a up and coming young photographer, Shelby, is found dead on the ranch. Is it Wade, her former brother in law, who committed the crime? Benni believes he is innocent and sets out to find the killer. Did Shelby leave a big clue behind.Fill of twists and turns and lovely exchanges between Benni and her chief of police husband. I enjoy this series after reading a heavy "novel." The mysteries are entertaining as well written.


    17. The more I read this series, the more I really like it. I found some of the elements in the story to be predictable, but it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of this book. I genuinely enjoy watching the character development and I look forward to seeing what will happen with Elvia's love life from here. Now I just have to wait for Mariner's compass to arrive! :)


    18. I love these Benni Harper mysteries. They are always a fun fast read. I sometime think I have the mystery solved, then I doubt it, then it turns out I was right after all. FUN!!!Earlene Fowler builds her character, you feel like they are real people you could be friends with. I hope I never get as involved in actual murders though, as Benni Harper does!!!


    19. My notes indicate this is 302 page book published in 1998. Homey dialog paints rich descriptions in this episode in "Benni Harper's" life. The backstory conflict centers around Dove, Isaac is introduced for the first time. Greed and panic were the driving forces behind the main storyline. I always recommend Earlene Fowler. . . fast, fun, involving reads. Always.


    20. As book five in the series, Dove in the Window was as fun and exciting to read as book one. Earlene Fowler continues to offer surprises and twists in plot and character development. Can't wait to read book six.


    21. When photographer Shelby Johnson is murdered during the San Celina, California, Heritage Days celebration, her friend Benni Harper, dedicated quilter, rancher turned museum curator, and new wife of Police Chief Gabe Ortiz, searches for the killer.


    22. If you like one Benni Harper Mystery, you'll like 'em all. This offering not only leads us on a new murder mystery for our quilting sleuth, but also introduces the lovable Isaac Lyons to the growing population of San Celina.


    23. This continues to go well. The writing is not at a high caliber but it is pleasant. I like the quilt references, and Benni Harper is good--sometimes I find her a little annoying but she is largely a good character


    24. What I enjoy most about this series is the often volatle relationship between the Benni and Gabe. Supporting characters are also developing their unique personalities, which makes the plot even more interesting. Earlene Fowler, keep writing and I'll keep reading!


    25. I actually enjoyed this and picked it up randomly from the library. Very true to the traditional mystery style but with developed characters that are often lost in other mystery novels. Quick and easy read.



    26. #5 in the Benni Harper series was one of my favorites to date, as it deals not only with murder and quilting, but with insights on art and artists and what they face on a day to day basis. Usually these series start to peter out around this time, but so far, so good.




    27. This series is always good for a cozy read. California with a Kansas connection throwing in quilting, family, and a murder makes me happy.
