If you’re one of three snowbirds migrating to Homosassa Florida in search of some warm weather places to roost, will you choose a place where murder and death are constantly ruffling your feathers? Murder on the Mullet Express is a mystery that perfectly marries historical fiction, artfully crafted action and humor. The three participants in this arrangement are the archaic Professor Percival, his not so spring-like chicken niece Cornelia Pettijohn, and her feisty but flask-swigging gal pal Teddy Lawless. Together they take a trip to peruse some balmy property in Homosassa Florida. But the trip turns out to be marred by fishy transportation (the Mullet Express), exaggeratedly hyped property (the final design was left purely to the imagination), and murder! It’s an exciting trip, complete with mobsters and gun blazing car chases. Each turn of the page burrows the reader deeper into the age of modernity; a time when automobiles were coming into their own and towns were springing up across the country. The main characters are carefully constructed to exemplify the 1920’s, as are the supporting cast - from their choice of attire to their period colloquialisms. The story is well told and leaves the reader wanting to know if the snowbirds will be having any more adventures. Authors Gwen Mayo and Sarah E. Glenn pay suitable homage to the history of Homosassa Florida. But because of the story’s humorous slant the information never feels stodgy. Murder on the Mullet Express is enjoyable and easy read, and I highly recommend it. These ladies really know how to make a murder seem fun!

Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite Murder On The Mullet Express (Three Snowbirds Book One) by Gwen Mayo and Sarah E Glenn is an extraordinary murder mystery. Cornelia Pettijohn is a stern and firm nurse who served in the Great War with her fun and flirty friend Theodora Lawless, better known as Teddy. Cornelia has finally got her house done, and Teddy is moving in with her when Uncle Percival decides to go on another trip. Cornelia's Uncle Percival is determined to look at some investment property in Florida. Because he had just finished a bout of pneumonia he caught on his last investment trip, Cornelia and Teddy accompany him. When Cornelia's Dodge breaks down, the three make the final trip on the Mullet Express. A man dies a mysterious death, and the police take Percival into custody. Annoyed by the lack of interest the local lawmen have in the person framing her uncle for murder and concerned for her elderly relative's health, Cornelia goes hunting for the real killer herself, aided by Teddy. The two veteran nurses find themselves mixed up in a mob play for power. Will their experiences from the war help them? Will Cornelia and Teddy be able to find the murderer and save her Uncle Percival before it's too late? Murder On The Mullet Express (Three Snowbirds Book One) by Gwen Mayo and Sarah E Glenn is an excellent cozy mystery. It is a fabulous mystery set during the prohibition era. I was captivated from the start, and I loved every word of this book. I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page. The characters are lovable and amusing. I am looking forward to reading more of Cornelia, Teddy, and Percival's exploits. Not only is it an engaging whodunit, but it is also steeped in Florida's fascinating history. I have to commend the authors for including historical references at the end of the book. The references were interesting and helped me understand certain aspects of the story. This is a fantastic cozy mystery, and I recommend it to those who love whodunits, especially those set in the early twentieth century.
