    characters ✓ Cafe Europa: An Edna Ferber Mystery Cafe Europa, An Edna Ferber MysteryReceived as an ARC the concept of author Edna Ferber as detective intrigued me Getting into it was a challenge Perhaps I should have read some of the previous titles in the series to assist me in coming up to speed but I don't think it would have helped Once I was well into it I was sucked into the intrigue and characters of the tale and Budapest which was one of the most brilliant characters in the book

    characters ✓ Cafe Europa: An Edna Ferber Mystery Cafe Europa, An Edna Ferber MysteryThe good The story is set in pre WWI Budapest and it's rich in details that ground it in that particular time and place The beginning to fade glory of the Café Europa in the real life Arpad Hotel—freuented by American travelers—the still famous New York Café and Café Gerbeaud the gypsy music the cakes and coffee with whipped cream the dynamic politics they're all brought to life with vivid descriptions that took me right there The descriptions of food especially are very evocative Vladimir Marko hovering put a platter of rye bread on our table each slice bearing a chunk of opaue lard speckled with paprika and salt or Dark bone tingling coffee with frothy whipped cream a concoction I'd become fond of and knew I'd demand in every American restaurant till the end of my daysBut the story Ah the story I was expecting a sort of cozy murder mystery and the

    characters ✓ Cafe Europa: An Edna Ferber Mystery Cafe Europa, An Edna Ferber MysteryIfkovic's latest Edna Ferber tome involves Edna's escape from her Mother while on a Grand Tour of Europe and the weeks she spent in Budapest with Suffragette Winnifred Moss Of course Edna finds herself embroiled in not one but two murders Just as Europe is about to enter War Frankly the first murder involves such an annoying character that there was little suspense in finding the culprit which did take away from the story somewhat However it is always good to drop in on Edna and see what magic Ifkovic has created out of simple facets of her life Not the strongest entry in the series but I still enjoyed it

    characters ✓ Cafe Europa: An Edna Ferber Mystery Cafe Europa, An Edna Ferber MysteryThis is not a murder mystery It's all chit chat with a few characters that come and go I would have been happy reading the first and last 20 pages; I would not have missed anything It's a horrible book if you are looking for a murder mystery I forced myself to finish it so I could write a review Needless to say I won't be reading any of this series nor from this author

    characters ✓ Cafe Europa: An Edna Ferber Mystery Cafe Europa, An Edna Ferber MysteryOften the problem with historical fiction is that the history overtakes the tale In the case of the latest in the Edna Ferber mystery series Author Ed Ifkovic knows how to find just the right balance between items of historical interest and a rip rousing tale In this case it's the eve of World War I in Budapest when the short story writer and her companion Winifred Moss a British suffragette arriveEnglish speaking tourists have gravitated to a slightly down on its heels Hotel Arpad and its accompanying Cafe Europa The cafe and the city are a hotbed of spies illegal financial dealings and unsavory acts by end of empire rebels who seek to overthrow the Austro Hungarian ruling force Title rich but penny poor local nobles make contracts to marry rich Americans Life is changing all around and the arts and artists of Budapest reflect thatInto this melee come Ferber and Moss and while taking in the sights and delights of the city a young American heiress engaged to ma

    characters ✓ Cafe Europa: An Edna Ferber Mystery Cafe Europa, An Edna Ferber MysteryThis was my first Edna Ferber mystery and I was enchanted from the get go I am a sucker for foreign culture and the era of The Grand Tour in Europe holds particular appeal for me The author's description of the food and architecture and art and music and his attention to period detail combine to create a sense of time and place that becomes a character in itself and integral to the story This is a chilling socio political portrait of a country poised at the brink of war and the reader can feel the unease building throughout the tale The murder of the young American heiress almost takes a backseat to the motivations of the players and the emotional evolution of specific characters Aside from the issue of an unmarried woman traveling unescorted Miss Ferber who leaves her disapproving mother behind in Germany in order to visit her father's homeland along with the suffragette Winifred Moss
