Everyone knows everyone in eighty something,Myrtle Clover's small southern town.  Myrtle finds her excitement a little lacking these days.  She has already inserted herself in her policeman son, Red's, last murder case.  He worries about his mom and would like to see her in a safe assisted living home.   Unfortunately, there's another murder, the owner of the local beauty salon as become verbally abusive in her too frequently drunken states. So when she's found stabbed with her hairdressing sheers, at the bottom of her shop's stairs, there are a lot of potential suspects.  Myrtle just wants to "chat" with the towns folks to "help" Red with his investigation. She and her male friend don't sleep well at night, and tend to roam around at odd hours too. Will this get her into trouble with the killer, or help her find a murderer?  Cute mystery with all typical townsfolk range from toddlers to the octogenarian;  singles and married; flashy and totally prudish. Does life really begin after 60?

This story held my interest from the start. The busy body Myrtle, seemed a bit pushy at times, but she was determined to discover the murderer with help of her friend, Miles. There is no bad language, sex, or gore in this story - good books don't need that stuff.

I love these Myrtle Clover books. I love that you dont have to read them in order and that each one is a great book on its own. This one in particular had me stumped which I like. I cant wait to read them all.
