When Finnish resident Harry Aho (sometimes pronounced A-hoe) takes a bullet at his kitchen table, Gertie suspects it has something to do with the public shooting range he set up right on the property line next to a Swede.

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

    A funny, entertaining read. Every village must have a Miss Marple. If I still lived in a village I would be that person. Recommend this one.

    Gertie Johnson is the most fun of any character in the cozy genr

    Gertie Johnson is the most fun of any character in the cozy genre. She is 66, tough as nails, clever and sneaky . When she and her two friends set out to solve a local murder the laugh begin. Somehow I am always surprised that she does manage to get things done
