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.

    AWESOME AUTHOR!!

    It’s Bear Season is Yooper Country!! That is Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and the bears aren’t the only thing being hunted. A game warden is murdered right under Little Donny’s tree stand and Little Donny is no where to be found. Gertie is upset, her son, the sheriff, is wasting time trying to catch her driving without a license when he should be trying to catch a killer and find Little Donny. Does she have to do everything herself?!

    Dollycas’s Thoughts
    This story will leave your sides aching from laughter!!

    Gertie is an absolute gem!! Driving all over God’s creation without a license, tramping through the woods, questioning suspects who answer the door with sawed off shotguns, she does it all. She is quite a woman and you don’t want to mess with her. You never knows what she is going to pull out of that handbag. The woman is fearless!!!

    In addition to Gertie there is man-hungry Cora Mae, Carl who is willing to coat himself in chicken grease to bag a bear, Grandma Johnson who just loves to cook and good ole’ Blaze, who is just trying to his job. Add in a few more wacky friends and relatives, a dead body or two, and you are in for a wild ride courtesy of Deb Baker’s vast imagination.

    I have loved everything I have read by this awesome author! A master storyteller!! KUDOS DEB!!!

    A reviewer

    A game warden is murdered in Michigan¿s Upper Peninsula on opening day of bear season. Little Donny, Gertie¿s grandson, has gone missing. The warden was murdered at Little Donny¿s tree stand. Gertie¿s son, Blaze, is the sheriff, but he is after Little Donny as he thinks he is the murderer. Gertie believes in her heart that he¿s innocent. Gertie and her two friends, Kitty who also believes she is Gertie¿s bodyguard, and Cora Mae who is after all the men, set out to find Little Donny, prove his innocence, and find the real killer. Grandma Johnson, Gertie¿s mother-in-law who lives with her (against her wishes), doesn¿t make things easy. Then when Little Donny¿s mother descends on Gertie to await word on her son, Gertie kicks it up into high gear. Blaze keeps trying to get Gertie for driving without a license. She keeps working at dodging him. Gertie and her associates are a hoot. I love this series. You never know what Gertie will do next. I wish I knew Gertie. She sounds like she¿d be a lot of fun! The setting of Michican¿ts Upper Peninsula is great. It really adds to the story. I highly recommend this book and series!
