At the ripe age of 73, Imogene Deal McGregor has a penchant for following her own instincts, as well as more grit and spunk than her hypochondriac son, Billy McGregor, and Billy's impulsive partner Jackson Miller can handle. The boys take Imogene to New Orleans with their devilishly handsome English bulldog Goose, hoping to visit friends and attend a second line parade, but moments after arriving in the French Quarter, they find their friend Glenway Gilbert murdered in his art gallery. Immediately, Imogene and the boys run into a temperamental and ethically-challenged lieutenant who appears hell-bent on neglecting the crime, compelling them to seek answers themselves. As they delve into Glenway Gilbert's murder, Imogene and the boys realize the deceased artist was surrounded by suspicious friends and lovers. With Goose the bulldog by their side, Jackson and Billy seek answers among old friends and new enemies, while Imogene follows her own ideas on the case. But the sooner they solve the murder, the sooner they can get back to catching beads and eating pralines.

Well written fun story with a boatload of quirky characters who quickly become real to the reader. The characters truly make the book both interesting and memorable. Nothing wrong with the plot, I just focused more on the characters. It also felt like a nice visit back to NOLA because of the clear descriptions of the area.
I love murder mystery books and they are probably my favorite! I decided to download this one after reading the description as it sounded very interesting and like a book that I would be interested in. Imogene is 73 years old and she seriously has more energy than some of the young people that I know! Billy is Imogene's son and he shares her love for a good mystery. Billy also has a partner named Jackson that helps him to solve the crimes. An art gallery owner has been murdered and it's quite the mystery. Billy and Jackson are on the case and are trying to follow the leads. They realize that the art gallery owner has some fishy friends and associates. Imogene follows her own leads when trying to solve this case. I loved the story line and found it to be really interesting! I love a good and fun mystery book, which this author delivered!
