Imogene Duckworthy, eager PI assistant, wants to be on her own. She finds a rental house where her four-year-old daughter, Nancy Drew Duckworthy, and Drew's pet pig, Marshmallow, are allowed. The rumors are that the house is haunted. It's no rumor there's a dead man in the bathtub when she inspects the house, though. A long-lost relative is the logical suspect, but can Immy let her Uncle Dewey be railroaded for a crime he, possibly, didn't commit?

Imogene Duckworthy, her daughter, and their potbelly pig move into a tumble-down place that some say is haunted. Imogene’s not worried about a ghost, but there’s nothing fictional about the dead guy in the tub or her uncle trespassing in the house. On the cusp of becoming a P.I., Imogene decides to solve the case. Her precipitous action puts her in harm’s way and riles up her neighbor, her landlord, and her realtor. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments in George’s mystery. It was easy to read and to keep the characters straight. My fav character? Hardworking and very handy boyfriend, Ralph.

I love reading about Imogene Duckworthy and her family. In the latest installment, she moves into a new home and defends her recently-discovered uncle when he is accused of murder. This was a fun read and I enjoyed my visit with Immy as she tackles her uncle’s case and the incidences that seem to be happening around her new home. The author did a good job in keeping me on my toes as I wanted to know what happens next in this quirky romp in Saltlick and Wymee Falls, Texas. It was good to see her mother, her adorable four-year daughter and the stable presence of her friend Ralph. I hope there are more adventures to come with Immy and the gang.
