Another Hilarious Mystery

The Stephanie Plum of the geriatric set is back in Deb Baker¿s sequel to Murder Passes the Buck. Having decided to create her own (unlicensed) investigative agency ¿The Trouble Busters,¿ widow Gertie Johnson acquires the auctioned-off, vandalized sheriff¿s truck (that sheriff is Gertie¿s son and that she was the vandalizer is another story) and arms herself with a trusty bag of weapons that includes a taser, cattle prod, mace, and handcuffs. What she¿s not ready for is the body that is discovered near a hunting blind with the main suspect being her favorite ¿ and missing ¿ grandson. While her son is determined to keep her off the roads (Gertie never managed to learn how to drive or get a license), Gertie sets out to prove Little Donny¿s innocence with a posse that includes her single and predatory best friend Cora Rae, the police dog that Gertie unintentionally managed to get fired, and her self-proclaimed bodyguard Kitty. Once again Ms. Baker has created a hilarious mystery that whips along to a dramatic finish. Gertie is plagued with family members who hinder her as much as they help, yet her love for them always shines through. Moments of laugh-out-loud humor are balanced by Gertie¿s vulnerability as she battles to protect her grandson and ferret out a murderer by following the clues that her son ignores. This Yooper Mystery series continues to grow stronger and readers will be eager for Gertie¿s next appearance.

    Love this series

    I love these mysteries. They are funny and the circumstances are fairly unique (usually hunting is involved). I would have given it 5 stars but there are some typos and I know some readers would be annoyed by them. However, the story is worth tolerating a few mistakes.

    Part 2

    There were parts of this I enjoyed more than the first book. I liked how the story seemed to focus more on the case rather than the crazy antics Gertie always managed to get herself into. At least this time, her craziness was tied into the case. This one didn't make me giggle as much as the first book. However, it was still a fun read.
