    Delightful!

    Whoever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks never met the silver-haired detective in this new and entertaining mystery. An great way to pass an afternoon with a character that feels like family. Enjoy.

    Meh

    It tries to be charming -- a "cozy" murder mystery, but everything comes off as gimmicky. I quickly got bored and out it down.

    A lot of fun!

    I want to read more. It was fun, and believable. I enjoyed how the family dynamics worked out between the mom, in whose backyard the body is found, and her son, the police chief.

    Octogenarian, Myrtle Clover fills her yard with her favorite gar

    Octogenarian, Myrtle Clover fills her yard with her favorite garden gnomes as a sign of her displeasure with her across the street neighbor, Red, who is also her son and their small North Carolina's town police chief.  He thinks she should live safely in an assisted living facility, and she thinks she should take advantage of the town gossip and her roll as a newspaper reporter, to help solve problems in her town.  Unfortunately, someone has decided that one of her gnomes was a good murder weapon, and there's a dead body in her back yard.  




    This time, the dead body was a scoundrel, who is a distant cousin of her friend and fellow sleuth, Miles.  And Myrtle's busybody neighbor announces that Miles must be the murderer.  So, once again Myrtle insinuates herself into Red's murder investigation.  She's also helped by Red's wife who has taken up photography as her new hobby. 




    This fun series never fails to amuse me while providing clues to the murder mystery.  Wonder which will last longer, Myrtle--now approaching 90, or this mystery series.  I'm rooting for both!

    Great Cozy!

    Fun, well written cozy. With each book, we get to know the characters a little bit better in this small southern town. No swearing, no sex, no graphic details. Great entertaining little series

    I could not get into this book; maybe it was imagining an 80 + y

    I could not get into this book; maybe it was imagining an 80 + year old women doing the investigating and being so active. On one hand I hope I am that active when I am that age and on another I just could not get into this story. One of the books I could not finish.
