Ivy the invisible rides again!

Super senior sleuth Ivy Malone has curiosity that just won't quit. That inquisitiveness has gotten her into plenty of trouble, including murder, mayhem, and a place on a mini-Mafia hit list.

Hiding out from some thugs who want revenge, she hops in a motor home and heads across the country. But with Ivy behind the wheel, trouble is bound to be in the passenger's seat-and a murder mystery can't be far away. So when she stumbles across two very dead bodies, Ivy is determined to solve the crime, even if it kills her.

McCourtney's spunky snooper once again provides readers with smiles, suspense, and a very satisfying tale. Mystery lovers won't be disappointed!

"I'm hooked on Ivy Malone. In Plain Sight is like my favorite mocha milkshake-sweet, dark, rich, and refreshing! I love how Ivy slips around nasty-people radar and ends up solving the case once again. Go, Ivy, Go!"-Lyn Cote, author, The Women of Ivy Manor series

"I am a devoted mystery reader and, in particular, a devoted fan of Ivy Malone. This self-proclaimed LOL (Little Old Lady) will bring you LOL (Lots of Laughs)!"-Lauren Winner, author, Girl Meets God

I received the first book on Free Friday, was hooked, and am about to purchase my fourth book to keep up on the adventures of Ivy Malone, LOL (Little Old Lady). I enjoy the humor, the character, and her relatives. I think of her as an American Miss Marple.

Best of the series to date. Loved the first two. All stories very different which makes the series that much more interesting. Likeable characters. Good plot. Funny.

Absolutely loved all of the Ivy Malone mysteries. I just wish the publisher had let the author continue with it. Such a neat idea of centering the stories around a LOL. And the fact that it's also a Christian series makes it all the better! Wish there were more books/authors like this. Highly recommend her other series as well.

The Ivy Malone series is a light mystery book with lots of humor. It's like reading about your spunky grandma solving murders. I recommend any book in the series. They are all quite entertaining.

LOL (Little old Ladies) like Ivy Malone should not be on the run in her RV going from town to town to escape people who are trying to kill her. Ever since she was one of the people who helped convict one of the Braxton brothers for murder the clan has been after her. They almost succeeded in burning her Missouri home down (with her inside) and they put dynamite in her car. After escaping from them once more, she picks up a hitchhiker, Abilene, in Oklahoma and the pair applies for a job at Jack and Jessie¿s compound. --- They find the couple dead, apparently the result of a murder suicide pact. There was a note in their handwriting and there was gun residue on Jack¿s hand. From the very beginning Ivy and Abilene are sure that both people were the victims of a homicide by a person unknown. Little things like a gold Kruggerand mysteriously appearing in a spot it wasn¿t in before and a bullet hidden in the wall makes them think the case is not open and shut. Ivy proves to be too smart for her own good and as a result she puts her life in danger. --- Getting a job as the caretakers to watch over the compound is supposed to gives both women who are on the run (Abilene¿ husband, a spouse abuser is looking for her) a chance to rest. Instead they find themselves in the middle of two deaths where the surface picture doesn¿t take into account certain anomalies. Ivy and Abilene make a perfect sleuthing pair and the friendship that springs up between the older woman and the younger is emotionally heartwarming and adds depth to a fascinations and exciting storyline. Lorena McCourtney writes an action packed character driven amateur sleuth mystery that readers will enjoy immensely. --- Harriet Klausner

This was a very enjoyable quick read. I had previously read the first two Ivy Malone books, and wanted to continue to follow the antics of Ivy. I would enjoy reading other books by this author.
