Publisher's Summary

Agnes Barton is not your typical senior citizen living in Tadium, MI, on the shores of Lake Huron. She drives a red hot Mustang, shops at Victoria's Secret, rankles local police officials, and has a knack for sticking her nose where it doesn't belong. What does a murder that happened forty-three years ago have to do with missing tourist Jennifer Martin? Agnes makes it her personal mission to find out, and she's not letting the fact she's seventy-two get in the way. Butting heads with Sheriff Clem Peterson is something she's accustomed to, but lately Clem seems to be acting even more strange, making Agnes wonder what he may be hiding ala the Martin disappearance. Agnes' partner in crime, Eleanor Mason tags along, Watson to her Holmes. Together, they unearth clues. If only Eleanor would behave, as although lovable, she has a knack for getting into trouble by tangling with her rival, Dorothy Alton, or flirting with anyone - male or female - and gossiping! She's incorrigible, but she does carry a Pink Lady revolver in her purse, one that has proved useful at times. Life for Agnes and Eleanor is shaken up when Agnes' former boss and secret crush comes to Tadium. Before long, the lady sleuths have more on their hands to contend with as goons roll into town and bullets begin to fly.

    ""UNBELIEVEABLE""


    I thought this book would be a fun light listen. Like the MudBug series or a Molly Harper book. But it was diffucult to finish. The attempts at humor were lacking humor, at best. The plot was weak. And the conculsion felt rushed. I kept thinking, did I skip a part?

    And the narrator should not attempt to perform voice changes. It sounded like a grandmother trying to do voices for a child's bedtime story. Really, one expects a professional reader to have more range ability. This is not a series that I will continue.

    "Bit different"

    Not your average sleuth story. Grandmas take on a serious case in a funny way. Good basis for a nice series.

    "Well read, but the rest???"

    I thought the book was very well read , but the plot and characters was completely unbelievable, and poorly thought out. To bad, because it could have been a cute book. I will pass on any other books of this series.

    "Awful."

    Would give zero stars if possible. Awful storyline, poor characters, beyond awful narration. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
