Overview

Granny leads a secret life in the small, unique community of Fuschia, Minnesota. It's not just her all junk food diet, multiplying pets, or her shocking bedtime attire that makes Granny one in a million. No, Granny is an undercover cop, charged by "the Big Guy" (the town's police chief) of preventing theft in local stores. Granny takes her job seriously and daily foils many shoplifters using her trusty spiked umbrella and amazing acting skills. When some startlingly brazen burglaries begin to occur that Granny can't solve, along with mysteriously appearing bad guys, disappearing clerks, and misplaced Corvettes, Granny begins to wonder if she isn't ready for the wrinkle farm. Maybe, it's fortuitous when she accidentally-on-purpose falls in the lap of an attractive older gentleman who is soon roped into her wild adventures, as they try to figure out what's happening in their little town.

Audiobook - Narrated by Priscilla Finch Serious Chuckle Time If you're looking for a serious or die hard mystery this may not be for you. However, if you want a fun, fast-paced & quick story to crack you up, then take a chance on Granny. That's not to say that there isn't a mystery going on. Granny works for the stores in town as undercover security. In this first book, we're introduced to the characters in town as Granny goes on her "rounds". Things come up missing from many stores & at one point Granny starts to doubt her sanity. I don't want to say more because it's too much fun to hear it yourself. She's just sassy, funny & sometimes just plain crazy but I want to be Granny when I grow up; umbrella and all.

4 STARS Fun mystery. Anyone reading this will end up smiling a lot. Granny has a lot of secrets she hides from her kids. She has a wild side. The characters are fun and I think thats a fun way to check on people living alone. (But I won't be doing any of those things.) The suspense is well done. I figured out some of it but not all. It keeps your attention and sad to see the fun end. Lots of Drama, action, laughter. It is also a clean fun cozy mystery. Granny is not your average grandmother. She works for the cops. When she sees a person commit a crime she accidental stops them with her umbrella or gets in their way while she pushes a button so police chief will come and arrest them. Just a few people know what she is up too. She has three adult children that she is fooling. A cat named Fish who keeps bringing interesting gifts to her. The animals in the story are fun characters. I like them. The setting is Fuschia, Minnesota. A small town. That is having a crime wave. But Granny is working on stopping it. I hope we will see more of Granny and Fuschia again. The pacing in the story was good and kept me smiling and reading more. I was given this ebook to read for reviewing and being part of Granny Hooks A Crook book tour.

I knew from the first few pages that I was going to enjoy this book! Granny Hooks a Crook is hilarious and keeps you guessing throughout the book. This isn't one of those mysteries that you discover who the bad guy is right away. I loved the cliffhanger ending. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. If you love cozy mysteries, and sassy old ladies, you're going to love this book.

Just as much fun as I'd expected from the description. You can't help but wonder how much is really happening and how much is Granny's imagination. That make it all work. Lots of silliness and a fun premise of Granny being hired by the locals to wander stores looking for shoplifters. Until she starts loosing her confidence, she does really well. A fun read.
