Pawpaw County, Indiana, is all atwitter about Ma and Peepaw Horton’s annual Chickenlandia Festival. 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. Also missing: Gertie Wineagar, local sourpuss, and BBQ chicken cook-off queen. Amateur women sleuths, Ruby Jane (RJ) Waskom and Veenie Goens, suspect Hiram Krupsky, Pawpaw County’s self-proclaimed Chicken Wing King, of master-minding the crime spree in an attempt to sabotage the Horton’s free-range chicken ranch. Follow the women detectives as they attempt to sort the good eggs from the bad in this humorous small-town, country crime comedy. “Chickenlandia” is Book 3 in the women sleuths’ mystery series The Shady Hoosier Detective Agency, winner of three Best Indie Humor Book 2019 Awards and two Best Cozy Mystery Awards.

A super entertaining cozy mystery that will keep you smiling right up until you have to jump in and save the day. This was a quick read for me but I enjoyed it so much, I may have to read it again! Anyone who has chickens...I have 17...will recognize themselves in this book.

Chickenlandia Mystery is a hilarious Southern mystery adventure. Ruby Jane and Veenie are elderly private detectives who have been tasked to find a missing prize rooster and laying hen (Dewey and Ginger) for Ma and Peepaw Horton, owners of Chickenlandia, an organic, free range chicken farm set in the town of Knobby Waters in PawPaw County, Indiana. Although it’s set in Indiana, it’s definitely a Southern Comedy which turns into a murder mystery when Veenie is accused of killing a rival with a forklift. Ruby Jane and the ankle bracelet wearing Veenie do not let this slow them down as they race to solve a murder, find Dewey and Ginger, and bring peace back to Knobby Waters. If you love mysteries and Southern Comedy, you will love this book, which is #3 in the Shady Hoosier Detective Agency series by Daisy Pettles.. #mysteries #comedy #ShadyHoosierDetectiveAgency #Chickenlandia #DaisyPettles

Yes, RJ and Veenie are at it again. This third caper with our favorite senior snooping sleuths starts off with a missing person. Gertie Wineager wasn't winning any popularity contests, but she was the reigning queen of the BBQ chicken cook-off - part of the annual Chickenlandia Festival. The plot rapidly thickens when the prize-winning rooster and top laying hen go missing from Ma & Peepaw Horton's - the actual Chickenlandia that the festival is named for. Add in a rival egg laying operation, a chicken wing king, and Veenie's intense distrust of chickens, and our gal pals are scrambling to find out what happened to Gertie the BBQ queen, Dewey the rooster, and Ginger the hen. Oh...and then there's Veenie's forklift accident - and a dead body! Yikes! Fear not, dear readers. By story's end, the cluckers are back in their coop, and the reign of Gertie remains. Who knows what trouble Veenie and RJ will find themselves in next? I can hardly wait to find out!
