Sixty-six year old Gertie Johnson and cohorts Cora Mae and Kitty have a knack for stirring up trouble in what was once a quiet backwoods community in the heart of the Michigan Upper Peninsula. Three humorous novella adventures with the trio: Murder Bites the Bullet Finnish resident Harry Aho (pronounced A-hoe) takes a bullet at his kitchen table, and Gertie suspects it has something to do with the public shooting range he set up right on the property line adjacent to a Swede. Murder Begins at Home Gertie thinks she has her hands full with her wily ninety-two-year-old mother-in-law, who is writing a secret guide to controlling husbands until an old-timer goes missing and winds up right next to a dead body with the murder weapon clutched in his fist. Murder Trims the Tree When Gertie and her friends decide to do their court-ordered community service at the local assisted living home during the Christmas season, they get more than they (plea) bargained for.
