Overview

Remember the days when all it took to make you happy were a glass of milk, some cookies and a Nancy Drew book? Well, grab your coffee, your biscotti and THE BIG BIRTHDAY MYSTERY (An Exciting Chancy Clew Adventure!)and go back in time…before computers, texting and even TV! Go to a place where all phones have cords and only the wealthy could afford them. Go to High Stream where women wear dresses and leave the pants on the men. While there, meet girl detective, Chancy Clew on the morning of her 19th birthday. Hear our darling detective declare that all she wants is a mystery to solve. How fortuitous, her wait is short! Go with the lovely sleuth and her best gal-pals Dick Fey and Bitsy Starvin as they travel near and far and encounter one dangerous dilemma after another. Will they be able to stop the devils who are swindling helpless widows and spinsters out of their monies and valuables? Can Chancy escape the clutches of the villainous Moe Lester? Will the unthinkable happen? Can you bear the excitement? Let's hope so!

This pithy parody mixes naughty innuendo, an injection of double entendre and a big dose of political incorrectness to create a skewed look at a familiar world!The reviewers agree: this book is a hoot!

"Gone are the days when only your children enjoyed comedic mystery novels and hello to the new times. This book is a mixture of Nancy Drew and Scooby-Doo with a more adult version of comedy. A typical children's mystery novel with a dash of adult innuendos and more sophisticated language. Sure, your kids can still read this book (they won't get the jokes), but be prepared to be asked what many words mean. However, this is mainly for adults (or any "mature" teenager).

THE BIG BIRTHDAY MYSTERY was an interesting and entertaining read. I am a a big fan of mysteries and I was disappointed with this one. It was a quick read that grabs your attention right from the beginning with a few twists. The characters were believable and the story not too predictable. Nothing is worse then knowing the outcome before you even get there. This was not the case. Overall, if you are looking for a quick read that entertains you, this book is for you!

Gone are the days when only your children enjoyed comedic mystery novels and hello to the new times. This book is a mixture of Nancy Drew and Scooby-Doo with a more adult version of comedy. A typical children's mystery novel with a dash of adult innuendos and more sophisticated language. Sure, your kids can still read this book (they won't get the jokes), but be prepared to be asked what many words mean. However, this is mainly for adults (or any "mature" teenager). The author uses language of a different time, which is good because it follows it's time period, and really works to expand your vocabulary. Her use of comedic wit and banter is great and will have you giggling like an idiot every few pages. If you're in the market for a pick-me-up kind of read, pick this book right on up and you'll be glad you did.
