Summary

Retta and her FBI-agent boyfriend stop in Green Bay, Wisconsin, for the night. Lars goes out on a mysterious errand and disappears, leaving a text message that says he's dumping Retta for an old flame. The police take the message at face value, but Retta, sure it's a lie, calls in sisters Faye and Barb. 

As they begin following leads, they meet three sisters who might be future versions of them: Betty, a sweetheart who loves the Green Bay Packers; DeeAnne, a dramatic type who is always in acting mode; and Lydia, a business-like grump. They say they don't know where Lars could be, but something doesn't smell right at their antique/vintage shop located in an old mill, and it isn't just the many cats that roam the place freely.

Retta is soon captured and held prisoner. She escapes, is caught, and escapes again...and again because Retta isn't the type to give up. Barb and Faye search frantically for her with Styx the Newfoundland as their clumsy-but-dedicated ally. Their investigation leads them to stolen Iraqi artifacts, an old farmhouse in the sticks, and assistance from a member of the Green Bay Packers. 

Knowledge is power, but success had better come quickly because the criminals' plan is for Retta - and anyone else who gets in their way - to die.

Something unsavoury at the old mill.

This delightful series featuring the three S!euth sisters once absorbing a most enjoyable mix of thrills, laughter and crazy characters. The sisters, who run a private detective business, the Smart Detective Agency, this time look into the disappearance of Lars, Retta's partner. He'd started acting strangely when they had visited a shop with antique jewelry then, shortly after, drove off and simply hadn't come back. The sisters mobilise.
The joy of these books lies in the personalities and interaction of the sisters and, in this story, the quirky characters they encounter, rather than the story itself, though that is fun. Three narrators, Anna Jacques, Judy B!he and Liz Cloud, read alternating chapters, taking the roles of Barbara, Retta and Faye, which adds to the individuality of the members of the trio, All do an excellent job in breathing life not only into them but the other characters, also - and of Sticks, a very large dog. A bit slap stick humour in places, this is a fun book and recommended to brighten a dreary day.

My thanks to the rights holder of Captured Escape, Repeat, who, at my request freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via F.A.F.Y. Definitely a go to series for light hearted fun with realistic personalities. Recommended

Another winner

Maggie Pill has crafted another excellent installment in her Sleuth Sisters series. It has all the fun and excitement of previous installments. Anne Jacques, Judy Blue, and Liz Cloud give stellar performances as they bring it all to life.

A nice Wisconsin tale!

I’m from the Upper Peninsula so I enjoy regional stories. Maggie’s books are always enjoyable. Just the right amount of humor mixed in with the mystery. I thoroughly enjoy the readers who add depth to the characters.
