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:
"(A) delight to read. In addition to the engaging mystery, it's a wonderful story of the love of family and friends." ~ Hidden Staircase Mystery Books

"Deb Baker has perfectly captured the spirit and lifestyle of those who dwell above The Bridge." ~ Traverse City Record-Eagle

"If you're looking for a chuckle-filled read, visit Stonely at every opportunity. Suddenly, your own crazy relatives won't seem so bad!" ~ Mysterical-E

"One of the most memorable heroines in recent crime fiction." ~ Lansing State Journal

"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

"The heart of Murder Talks Turkey is Gertie. If she lived in the south rather than the far north, we'd call her a 'steel magnolia.' When she is on the lam, Gertie does it in a style not before seen in crime fiction.” ~ Cozy Library

"[A] hilarious light-hearted mystery." -- Book Lover Blog

    Love Gertie

    I have laughed through every Gertie Johnson book. Just finished the last book and Deb needs to write another. I need another Gertie fix. :)
