When her neighbor is shot and killed in his hunting blind, 66-year-old widow Gertie Johnson seizes the opportunity to move on with her life by investigating his death. Gertie is abetted (and hindered) by her grandson Little Donny, man-hungry best friend Cora Mae, and word-of-the-day challenger, Kitty. It doesn't help that Chester's death has been ruled an accident by the sheriff of this backwoods community in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Or that Sheriff Blaze Johnson happens to be Gertie's son.

Whether it's interrogating neighbors, spying, or impersonating the FBI - not to mention staying one step ahead of Blaze - Gertie will do whatever it takes to solve the case, even when the killer takes aim at her.

    " Okay, I marked it read, but I didn't. I DNF'd it. My gosh. I just don't even know what to say. The whole scenario and the main character were totally unbelievable. The main character was like a hyped up cliche of a northern backwoods redneck woman...so very fake...I actually read about 15% of the book because I kept thinking it would get better, but I finally realized it wouldn't. A total insult to actual living eccentric northern backwoods redneck women, of whom I know a few. Phew! "

    " Stubborn grandma solves murder in Michigan's UP. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 2/7/2014

    " This cozy mystery is a little too silly. Gertie Johnson is a meddlesome granny who gets mixed up in murder. It was a quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/31/2014

    " I generally don't care for humorous mysteries, but Gertie, an eccentric 66 year old, along with her friends, Kitty and Cora Mae made this read worthwhile. Their wit, along with some common sense, kept me turning the pages to see if they were able to find out "who dun it". The writing was a little disjointed, but still enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/28/2014

    " Good mystery - laugh out loud funny at times ;-) "

    " I loved all the main charactors. Gertie Johnson is a real a charactor as I have ever read. Its funny and and a real page turner. I would love to read the rest of this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Skeeter Jorgensen | 1/22/2014

    " This was a book about the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, (I live in the UP) I enjoyed the book and it brought back some memories of "Deer Camp" This was a very entertaining story. I plan on reading more of her books. At times I felt like she was talking about our back yard and our neighbors! Good stuff! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 1/15/2014

    " Was funny and very reminiscent of Stephanie Plum. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/11/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. It's a mystery but it's light and funny. The main character cracked me up. I will definitely read the next book in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sibel Hodge | 12/14/2013

    " As a big Evanovich fan, I was really looking forward to reading this based on the reviews. It didn't disappoint. Laugh-out-loud humour, a great story, and a really fun read. I'll definately be reading more from Gertie! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sumos_Mom | 11/11/2013

    " Ok-enough mystery fluff. Certainly not up there with great suspense novels, but a quick, fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 10/8/2013

    " Michigan's Upper Peninsula snow and ice are warmed by the antics of 66 yr old Gertie Johnson. Her son is sheriff, her husband passed away and she find sherself investigating her neighbor death or was it murder "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 8/17/2013

    " This was a fun read. Feisty Gertie decides that a neighbor was murdered and sets out to investigate despite the opposition of her son, the local sheriff. Some of the characters were a bit over the top but I liked them and wanted to know more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 8/2/2013

    " This was a good, enjoyable cozy mystery. A good senior citizen investigator widow! She will keep you wondering what she can pull off next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 5/20/2013

    " Loved the setting in the upper penninsula of Michigan. This was a fun, easy vacation read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cathy | 5/5/2013

    " Saying I read it, but I only read 75%, then found out the ending at book club. didn't like it at all. I have hardly ever, close to never, not finished a book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 4/2/2013

    " After I got past the early chapters it got better. I recommend sticking with it until the halfway point before deciding whether to give up on it. I'm sure that the subsequent books in the series are better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathi | 3/19/2013

    " Cute and clever. Not a page turning, exciting mystery but enough to hold your attention and keep you guessing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 3/12/2013

    " these books are wonder. they are very funny especially for people who live near the Upper Peninsula. Loved them "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patti | 3/9/2013

    " I tried to read this book, but just couldn't get into it. Never did that with a book before. Can't say anymore than that! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul Long | 1/11/2013

    " Eh. It was free. I would have paid a bit more, but it was a basic, low-brow detective story about an old woman striking out on her own as an investigator, and lucking into a murder mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fullfaun | 12/16/2012

    " I am not even halfway through this book and I have laughed out loud, snickered, and giggled OUT LOUD... while reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 11/25/2012

    " I'm not sure it says much for the book if my favorite part of the plot line was that the son was trying to have mom declared incompetent by the Probate Court. But....I do have interest in Probate Court. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margo | 9/28/2012

    " A decently entertaining read. Not sure if I'll follow up and read additional titles, but it was fun. Gertie Johnson is one colorful senior-citizen-turned-private-eye protagonist, that's for sure! And the Upper Peninsula setting is interesting. "
