Like Evanovich? Love Deb Baker

As a big Evanovich fan, I was really looking forward to reading this based on the reviews. It didn't disappoint. Laugh-out-loud humour, a great story, and a really fun read. I'll definately be reading more from Gertie!

This book was rather a disappointment for an avid reader of women's mystery writers. The writer borrows far too heavily from the likes of Goldy Schultz, the caterer turned detective, if somewhat reluctantly but with the help of a wealthy friend and a deputy husband who also cooks and helps her out of harms way. This heroine has a son, Blaze (named for a horse and still worked into a lather over it instead of just jumping into the saddle and being the stallion he could be), also a sheriff who spends so much of his time with his mousy almost-not-there as a character wife, Mary, who lives in a doublewide on Mom's property trying to get his hands on her money that he tries to have her declared incompetent by the court. It was filled with typos, misspellings, and awkward places made by a novice, not a novelist. I was very disappointing that this is compared to Janet Evonovich who really IS funny and sticks to the dialect of Trenton, NJ. There doesn't seem to BE a dialect of the Upper Penninsula, MI. I won't be wasting my money on another series by Deb Baker. I'm amazed she got published at all.

    Enjoyed it..recommend

    It is very familiar (im a big fan of stephanie plumb and grandma mazur) but there is also a ton different. I really enjoyed it. It was slow starting off but it did pick up and kept my interest. A nice quick easy read.

    Almost perfect!

    Hilarious one-liners, great quirky characters, enjoyable plot! My only complaint is that there are more and more grammatical errors as you go through the book. I will definitely buy more by this author!

    Enjoyed it.

    Just what I like, a light, funny who-done-it. Especially with the lead character my age.
