    Oh gag me with the gags

    This book is full of bad puns, worse gags and juvenile, corny jokes and down right mean remarks. These are so prevelant, they were extremly irritating after the first chapter. Lucy, the older sister is a religious zealot, dresses like a frump, doesn't have a back bone, and thinks she is better then her sister, Lexi, who is the heroine (of sorts) of the book. Lexi is a bad luck case, who feels sorry for herself, has no self esteem, lets people take advantage of her and does not how good she has it. The aunt, I felt sorry for, to be old, alone, unloved and unwanted is one of my fears in this life. This was nothing to be made fun of in my opinion. Danny, with his special needs would have known right from wrong at his degree of functioning. The rest of the characters are unlikable or jerks, the likable one was murdered. I found this book over long with mundane details and childish writting. It did have a plot. A beginning and end, as well as numerous mistakes. Please authors, if you write a mystery, which includes the police, do a bit of research on proceedures, to make the book less idiotic and more beleavible.

    A lighthearted amusing amateur sleuth tale

    Lexie Lightfoot has had it with her womanizing husband Dan. Disgusted with Dan¿s inability to not cheat, Lexie leaves him and accompanied by their teenage daughter Eva returns to her hometown, Moose Creek Junction, Wyoming where her married sister Lucy lives. She opens up The Saucy Lucy Café.------------- However Lucy turns out to not be saucy instead she is a faithful churchgoing mother of Carl and spouse of Otis. Lucy insists Lexie must remarry or else she will not be allowed in the kingdom of heaven. Thus Lucy begins setting up dates for her reluctant sister. However, every man who goes out with Lexie ends up dead the second date is always held at Stiffwell's Funeral Parlor. As the townsfolk fear the siblings are killers, Detective Gabe Stevenson investigates while Lucy's husband, sheriff Otis Parnell tells them to stay out of his inquiry. Lexie, seeing her reputation and her business tanking, ignores both law enforcement officials¿ warnings as she distrusts both cops and begins sleuthing, not understanding the danger she places herself and her partner in crime her sister Lucy in.------------- This lighthearted amusing amateur sleuth tale is fun to read as the sisters ignore law enforcement to investigate who is killing Lexie¿s dates. The key to this enjoyable whodunit is that a potential romance between Lexie and Gabe never occurs and this never intrudes not because he fears a second date, but instead the big tough detective is a wuss when it comes to women. The story line never takes itself seriously even when the heroine is in danger as Cindy Keen Reynders provides fans with an enjoyable frolic filled with puns like Stiffwell and strong characters.------------- Harriet Klausner

    Not too bad

    But the author seems to have been trying for a new gimmlck. The sisters thing and murder with romance have been done to death and this one doesnt really resurrect it

    Not horrible

    Not horrible, but very predictable. The secondary characters are not likable at all, whiny and harpy.

    Cute

    Cute book, but I found it hard to believe that sisters could be so different. There were far too many mentions of Lucy's support hose and flowered housecoats, and they seemed out of character for a women who wasn't elderly.

    I think the elderly aunt's character should be expanded, but made more eccentric and less Alzheimer-like. I hope she remains in the series (like Stephanie Plum's grandmother).

    And the E-Book version could use better editing - to correct the I/me and she/her grammatical errors.

    Not a bad book, but....

    The Saucy Lucy Murders wasn't a bad book. But it wasn't great, either. The other seemed to enjoy using worn out cliches throughout the book. And I'm not sure I grew particularly fond of either sister. I did finish the book, but I admit to skimming when some of the descriptions got overly tedious. Not sure if the typo errors were because this was the Nook version, but the grammatical errors were annoying.
