The mood turns dark though when the Horton’s prize-winning rooster, Dewey, and his best laying hen, Ginger, vanish, leaving behind no clues except for a trail of tail feathers.

Oldster sleuths, and lifelong gal pals, Ruby Jane Waskom and Veenie Goens, suspect Hiram Krupsky, Pawpaw County’s self-proclaimed Chicken Wing King, of launching the mysterious crime spree in an attempt to sabotage the Horton’s free-range chicken ranch. The women PI's, who need a way to spy on Krupsky’s chicken empire, get an unexpected “in” when Hiram slips into his best leisure suit and commences to court Ruby Jane. Follow the Hoosier snoops as they attempt to sort the good eggs from the bad in this humorous small-town cozy mystery.

This book is the third in this wonderful series and, to my mind, the best so far. RJ and Veenie perfectly capture the spirit of old women who won't just sit down, shut up, and fade away. The book is a delight to read with laugh out loud scenes familiar to women of a certain age who grew up in any mall town in the southern/midwestern US. The book builds on well-crafted characters introduced in the first two book, fleshing out their back stories without artifice. The writing is tight and the plot is cohesive. I love this author. She fills in a huge blank space in American literary history - putting older women right back in the fray instead of putting them peacefully out to pasture.

bookshelves: rural, situational-humor, verbal-humor, private-investigators, amateur-sleuth, senior-citizens, mysteries I think this really was set in Southern Wisconsin! Crazy funny! RJ and Veenie have got to be the wackiest pair of amateur sleuth/private investigators to ever solve a mystery, but solve things they do. First there's the missing wife and don't forget the chickens! The publisher's blurb is pretty good and no spoilers here, so just sit back and laugh yourself silly while they do the jobs. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Books Go Social via NetGalley. Thank you!

Funny. Funny. Funny. Chickenlandia takes place in a tiny southern town and involves the adventures of two old lady snoops, Veenie and Ruby Jane. The wit and humor is just great (especially if you are a disgruntled woman of a certain age!). If you love to laugh and enjoy southern humor and whimsical cozy mysteries this series is for you. I really enjoyed the dialogue between the two lady detectives and the scenes where the Chicken Wing King tries to date Ruby Jane. Laugh out loud writing.
