Toni Holmes has returned to Oiltop, Kansas and has done the unthinkable by opening a gluten-free bakery in the middle of wheat country. Her ninety year young Grandma Ruth is a retired newspaper reporter, but still enjoys writing articles and doing the investigative work. But this time she has gotten herself in jail for murder. Lois Striker, grandma's long nemesis, is found dead near the statue of local war hero Homer Everett and Ruth's scooter tracks go right to the body. Homer Everett may not be the hero everyone thought he was and Lois was going to share what information she had on Everett with Ruth, but was killed before she was able to. Grandma Ruth, being the cantankerous person she is, won't let the matter rest. About the only way to keep Grandma Ruth out of jail, and it's no guarantee, is for Toni to team up with her Aunt Phyllis, who's about as bad as Ruth, to search out the truth and to solve the murder.
Most of the characters from book one are back to help Toni and Ruth discover the truth about Everett. Grandma Ruth is joy to read about, such a spunky character for 90 some. Brad and Sam are still pursuing Toni, in hopes of being the one she will select when she decides to start dating again. The reader is introduced to Aunt Phyllis, who is every bit as bad as Ruth. These tow will keep the reader shaking their head and chuckling. Also, there is a new puppy, Aubrey, who will end up plays a part in helping to solve the murder.
Recipes, gluten free of course, are also included.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.
