Overview

Senior snoop, Agnes Barton, has taken up residence in a Winnebago at a campground in East Tawas, Michigan. It’s not the ideal place for a woman of seventy-two to live, but she’s making do. She had planned to start a detective agency with partner in crime, Eleanor Mason, but a snag with the license has them free wheeling it, not that it matters because they are the ones folks call when dead bodies turn up.

A frantic phone call has Agnes and Eleanor racing to the scene of yet another crime scene. Herman Butler has fallen to his death from a third story window, and the widow, Betty Lou, is beside herself with either grief or competing for the Oscars, and it’s up to Agnes and Eleanor to unravel the mystery, which gets more interesting when a ghost is listed as a possible suspect.

This time around, Agnes and Sheriff Peterson can agree, the widow is nuts, but wait, a few days later the ghost ship, Erie Board of Trades, was spotted off the shores of Lake Huron. Ghost hunters, G.A.S.P., hightail it into town, and East Tawas is overrun with ghost sightings.

Agnes and Eleanor must sort fact from fantasy before another body is found or a curse is realized.

    Surprising

    Slow-starter with too many "senior Citizen" references in early chapters but once the story takes over it turns into a fun read with surprising twists and an ending I didn't expect.

    Granny must not have experienced

    Being a granny, I take exception to the way the these grannys dress and engage in sex. These grannys are too far out for me. Wh

    I really wanted to like this, but it was terrible! What was mean

    I really wanted to like this, but it was terrible! What was meant to be funny was demeaning, insulting and crass.
    Worthless.

    not bad......

    good story, great characters, but a bit shaky in the writing. jumps from one idea to another without clear cut reasons, moves way to fast in the action scenes. all in all a good beach read.

    Really Cutesy

    There seems to be a bunch of extremely cute so stories which I somehow chose to read. The ghosts are located on boats on Lake Erie. Agnes is having her house rebuilt and lives in a trailer in the meantime.
