Granny has a new addition to her arsenal of crime fighting weapons as Fuchsia, Minnesota's most colorful detective. Now, along with her famous crook-hooking umbrella, she's acquired a scoundrel-skewering knitting needle. And just in time! Residents of Fuchsia seem to be dropping dead like flies! First, it's Granny's neighbor Sally (who gives up the ghost in her weed-filled front yard), followed by Esmerelda Periwinkle (the squirrel lover on Main Street), and then, Mr. Nail, owner of the local hardware store (who is squashed when dozens of bags of fertilizer fall on top of him). Granny is baffled. Who is behind this murder spree? Granny enlists the help of her sort of boyfriend Franklin Gatsby, the town's police chief Cornelius Stricknine (or "The Big Guy"), her reality-show loving neighbor Mavis, and her own son Thor. And, of course, the special assistance of her menagerie of pets--including Mr. Bleaty, the goat. Soon Granny is hot on the trail of this dastardly murderer. Unfortunately, when Granny herself is poisoned, everyone insists that she cool her crime solving ways and stay indoors and out of harm's way. Of course, that's never going to happen! Not when Granny knows all the secret passageways and tunnels that run underneath Fuchsia. Out she goes--and watch out, you evil doers! Granny will solve this mystery--you can bet your pink undies, she will!

OMG, I fell in love with the cover of this book in a glance. Once I started reading, I fell in love with the series too. Granny is a feisty old lady, and how can you not love a feisty crime solving old lady! That's right, you can't. We should all have a Granny like her. It would definitely make life so much more fun! She doesn't take guff from family or law enforcement. But then again, what cozy mystery sleuth does? And I absolutely love Granny's crazy fashion sense and her taste in cars! I mean, she drives a 57' Chevy convertible and it is red! Then there are the animals! Dogs, cats and even a goat. And their names! Oh my! They are almost as funny as the names of her children. She has three and two of their names are Thor and Starshine! This has everything that you could possibly want in a cozy mystery, quirky characters, a fun small town and a lot of laughs! I can't wait for the next book!
Granny Skewers A Scoundrel by Julie Seedorf 4 STARS Granny is a fun character. I love her feisty attitude. There are so many quirky characters in this book human and animals. There are lots of twists and turns I did not expect. Kept me guessing. Lots of humor, crimes, memory problems and junk food. Granny works undercover for the business of Fuchsia, Minnesota. She finds shop lifters, even kidnapper in last book. Her kids are worrying about her living alone and want her to move in with her. So she tricks Franklin into coming over and tells her kids that they are getting married soon. Franklin wants to keep Granny safe. She drives him crazy like his mother did. Franklin is a retired cop from New York. They share custody of their pets. Pets ideas. They keep bringing more pets home. Granny's neighbor dies and she is not the only one. Someone also wants to stop Granny by poisoning her. Granny does not listen to everyone wanting her to leave the murder cases alone. They even tell her she can't work for the business in town till the murder is stopped. Thor moves into town now to keep his eyes on his mom. He is falling for her new neighbor that Granny does not trust. The guys all think she is beautiful. There are a lot of new neighbors moving into her town and making lots of changes. I really like the new neighbor named Angel and want to see more of her in the future. I would love to read more books in this series. If granny can remember what is happening in Fuchsia. I was given this ebook to read, but the opinions are all mine and I agreed to write a honest review and be part of its blog tour. I did not want to put the book down till I had finished it. It is way over the top and makes it so fun a story.
