Overview

It’s 1926. The West Coast Development Company is staging its biggest land deal in Homosassa, Florida, selling pieces of a planned city to speculators who dream of a tropical paradise. Army nurse Cornelia Pettijohn takes leave to travel to Florida with her ancient uncle, who claims that he wants a warm winter home. When their car breaks down, they take the local train, The Mullet Express, into Homosassa. By the time they arrive, though, a passenger has been poisoned. A second murder victim boards the train later, iced down with the fish. Uncle Percival’s hidden agenda makes him the sheriff’s prime suspect. Cornelia and Teddy Lawless, a twenty-year-old flapper in a body pushing sixty, must chase mobsters and corner suspects to dig her uncle out of the hole he’s dug for himself.

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite Murder On The Mullet Express (Three Snowbirds Book One) by Gwen Mayo and Sarah E Glenn is an extraordinary murder mystery. Cornelia Pettijohn is a stern and firm nurse who served in the Great War with her fun and flirty friend Theodora Lawless, better known as Teddy. Cornelia has finally got her house done, and Teddy is moving in with her when Uncle Percival decides to go on another trip. Cornelia's Uncle Percival is determined to look at some investment property in Florida. Because he had just finished a bout of pneumonia he caught on his last investment trip, Cornelia and Teddy accompany him. When Cornelia's Dodge breaks down, the three make the final trip on the Mullet Express. A man dies a mysterious death, and the police take Percival into custody. Annoyed by the lack of interest the local lawmen have in the person framing her uncle for murder and concerned for her elderly relative's health, Cornelia goes hunting for the real killer herself, aided by Teddy. The two veteran nurses find themselves mixed up in a mob play for power. Will their experiences from the war help them? Will Cornelia and Teddy be able to find the murderer and save her Uncle Percival before it's too late? Murder On The Mullet Express (Three Snowbirds Book One) by Gwen Mayo and Sarah E Glenn is an excellent cozy mystery. It is a fabulous mystery set during the prohibition era. I was captivated from the start, and I loved every word of this book. I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page. The characters are lovable and amusing. I am looking forward to reading more of Cornelia, Teddy, and Percival's exploits. Not only is it an engaging whodunit, but it is also steeped in Florida's fascinating history. I have to commend the authors for including historical references at the end of the book. The references were interesting and helped me understand certain aspects of the story. This is a fantastic cozy mystery, and I recommend it to those who love whodunits, especially those set in the early twentieth century.
