5.0 out of 5 stars A winner as usual for Cannell, 2 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Trouble With Harriet (Hardcover)
In Chitterden Fells, Ellie and Bentley Haskell look forward to a romantic vacation in France. However, they delay their second honeymoon when Ellie's long-lost father Morley unexpectedly (except by the Gypsy fortune teller) arrives. Accompanied by an urn containing the remains of his beloved Harriet, Morley settles into Ellie's home as if he owns it. The presence of a live Morley living with Ellie is enough to put her off tea. However, she and Bentley also must put up with kooky Aunt Lulu, who is staying for an unknown spell.

Morley plans to give the remains of Harriet to her relatives. Before they can collect her ashes, the local vicar absently takes the urn with him. Soon, another vehicle accident leads to the death of two people. The police believe Morley killed them and Harriet. Because blood is thicker than water (but less than toothpaste), Ellie tries to prove her rascally father did not kill anyone.

THE TROUBLE WITH HARRIET is a very humorous who-done-it due to the reactions of Ellie and Bentley to the lunatic universe that threatens to engulf them. The jocular story line is a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, which talented Dorothy Cannell succeeds in doing well. The characters are amusing and add to the entertainment. Anyone who relishes a comic romp of a mystery should try this novel and its predecessor, THE SPRING CLEANING MURDERS, for both are delightfully diverting novels.
