Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Meet Helen Bradley: ex-police officer, government agent, and grandmother. With her new husband gone on a secret government assignment, Helen is left to her own devices. Then she gets a call from her old acquaintance Irene Kincaid, who is convinced that her doctor husband has been murdered. With the assistance of her granddaughter, Jennie, Helen managers to solve the mystery. Helen is a charming character, reminiscent of Dorothy Gilman's Mrs. Pollifax, with the addition of a strong belief in Christianity to motivate her actions. This is the first book in the Helen Bradley series, but characters may seem familiar through Rushford's young adult mystery series featuring Jennie McGrady.
