Overview

Ever wonder how a little old lady with possum-gray hair could wind up on a homicidal hit list? Well, nothing is too outlandish for Ivy Malone. She's back and she's brought her mutant curiosity gene with her. And ever since the evil-intentioned Drake Braxton and his family threatened to make road kill out of Ivy, her life has been crazier than ever!
With the ever-present threat of looming Braxtons, Ivy decides to get out of Dodge for a while. But for someone who slides down banisters and drives a T-Bird, hiding from the mob does not come easily. And when strange things start happening to her new neighbors, Ivy's snooping sense kicks into overdrive. Will she unravel the mystery? Or will the threats to her safety scare her away?
With Invisible, readers laughed so hard they cried. In Plain Sight, the second Ivy Malone mystery, promises to be even better!

Another great book by Lorena McCourtney. She proves that you can have a great book without all the four letter words.

Maybe it is because I am a "little old lady", but I love this "Little Old Lady"s feistiness, wit and perserverance. Reminds me a bit of the Miss Marple books with an American and more modern twist.

Ivy Malone has left her hometown in fear of the Braxtons who have threatened her after her testimony which convicted one of them for murder. She decides to stay with her niece and her family in Arkansas in hopes that she will be able to once again become a little old invisible lady again. Ivy stays with her grandniece and is prepared to enjoy a peaceful vacation away from the worries that follow her. Unfortunately she is mistaken to be a housekeeper and gets hired from a reclusive woman who turns up dead after firing Ivy. The reader snoops along with Ivy as she tries to find out who has committed the murder while unsuccessfully trying to get herself into any more danger. I have become a huge Ivy Malone fan. Who knew little old ladies could be so much fun? This book is very like Murder She Wrote where the heroine is not someone you would expect to go around getting involved with murders. Ivy is not afraid of anything! I loved the twists and turns in this story. I love how Ivy takes advantage of getting away with almost anything because people prejudge her because of her age. This was a hilarious read also as Ivy manages to always get caught in unsuspecting situations and has to explain why she happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. I also know how she felt when she got the chance to catalogue the library. I would loved to be able to sort through all those boxes of books with her. I did like also how the generation gap between Ivy and her grandniece was never a problem. I think that Ivy was more able to accept teenagers because she knows what it's like to be judged by other people, therefore she does her best to accept them for who they are. Ivy is a great character, I like her especially because she refuses to fall into the stereotype of a little old lady. I can't stand books where LOLs are gossipy, snoopy, crabby characters. Ivy is none of those things. This book is highly recommended for anyone who likes mysteries and having a good fun time while reading it.

McCourtney comes through with In Plain Sight with another consistent and good read. Continuing the tale of Ivy Malone, this little old lady (LOL) has more adventures and excitement than most people have their whole lives. She's smarter than the police and cool enough that even the young people want to hang out with her. This is a cute book and fun to read. I'm definitely looking forward to finishing off the series.

I just came across Lorena's books. I love them. Ivy Malone and I could be good friends. Cant wait to read all of her books.

Wonderful light read without the trash talk! This is the second book in the series and I enjoyed it every bit as much if not more than the first. All of the books in the series are just a refreshing read about the "sleuthing" of a delightful, lovable character named Ivy Malone. I truly enjoyed them. Reminded me of the Murder She Wrote television series with Angela Landsbury but even better because it is a book and allows my own imagination to join in the fun.

If you like murder mysteries, with a little humor thrown in, you'll love the "Ivy Malone" series by Lorena McCourtney. Gotta read all 4. Invisible got me started, and the rest was history. From one book to the other, I can't put it down till I find out what Ivy is going to do next. All of McCourtney's characters are so interesting, they all keep you guessing as to which one is the murderer, AND you really don't know till the end. Start with "Invisible" and keep going. You won't be sorry!

Sometimes I want to read a book that doesn't tax me - this is it. Ivy Malone is a LOL (little old lady) with a "mutant curiosity gene". She also has discovered at as a LOL she is invisible to people - overlooked because they think as a senior citizen she doesn't count. She uses this to advantage to sleuth, but eventually she is noticed and is in big trouble. This book is funny and cozy, not a bad way to breeze through some spare time.

Too many series is confusing need to be specific rsther than generic and get a supporting cast forgettable at the start which gal it is? Must they walk in on a dead body and be suspected? or was that the other ones? No flavor Page Counter
