Overview

Gertie Johnson has her hands full with her wily ninety-two-year-old mother-in-law, who is writing a secret guide to controlling husbands and using local stories as examples.

When an old-timer goes missing and winds up right next to a dead body with the murder weapon clutched in his fist, The Trouble Busters spring into action. Before this investigation is over, Gertie will have a few behind-the-scenes relationship stories of her own. She doesn’t know it yet, but living to tell them is going to be the tricky part.

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES:

"Take a wild ride through the North Woods with Deb Baker's latest Yooper Mystery. Murder Talks Turkey is a laugh out loud, action-packed romp with some of the zaniest mystery investigators ever. Armed with walkie-talkies, stun gun, and Wonderbras, Gertie Johnson and friends hunt for the killer--and create more trouble than they started out with. It's a hoot and a half." ~ Maggie Sefton, author of A Killer Stitch
