Myrtle, Miles, and the entire cast of likeable characters are truly delightful! Treat yourself to this well written, entertaining mystery series. Read them in order, and enjoy all their capers. No sex, swearing or violence.

Eighty something, Myrtle Clover and her neighbor, Miles are back at it again.  While scheming to upgrade the books in their book group to some serious classics, Myrtle's busy body neighbor jumps in and convinces the group to change to a progressive dinner club.  First of all, Myrtle is a terrible cook, but she purchases deserts for her turn.  But her turn never comes around.  The main dish hostess is found murdered on her kitchen floor.  Someone based her head in with a frying pan.  Myrtle is, apparently, only one of a couple people who actually didn't have a grudge against the victim.  Once again, Myrtle competes with her police chief son, Red, to discover the murderer first.  After all, she's added investigative reporter to her old age resume.  Red tried to side track her into writing  a "household hints" column, but shoot, with all the gossip around her small town, she just can't stop herself from listening --can she?  Her new ferrel feline buddy is trying to help Myrtle too.  He's teaching her how to "hunt" by bring different "catches" to her home, a sparrow and a chipmunk amongst other icky "food treasures".  This continues to be a fun series filled with many interesting characters.  Myrtle's habit of filling her front and back yard with garden gnomes to annoy her son, is just one of the creative actions of our octogenarian heroine that causes me to break out in laughter throughout this book.  Definitely a fun cozy with a great mystery plot.
