4.0 out of 5 stars More please!
I really enjoyed this. It's got great characters - Myrtle is just wonderful. This was a 'good read' - good on suspense and pretty unputdownable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly amusing
A pleasant read about an octogenarian amateur sleuth. It was funny enough to keep me smiling. Nothing wrong with the book, it was just too light weight for me, you could describe it as a 'nice murder'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ocvtogenarian Miss Marple, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Body in the Backyard (A Myrtle Clover Mystery Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
Think an octogenarian Miss Marple, but less polished, less witty, less sophisticated, more repetitive, more obvious, and set in modern small-town America than in a cosy mid-twentieth-century English village. Think not roses and climbing ivy but overgrown grass and a collection of garden gnomes, one of which is a murder weapon. It's all a bit primitive, but the sort of thing its aficionados will doubtless lap up, wanting more.

It kept you from the moment you started reading it, and the number of characters involved where great. Right to the end you had the feeling it was someone else. A great read.

This review is from: A Body in the Backyard (A Myrtle Clover Mystery Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
Found this book a little difficult to get into at first. Also annoyed me a little as I thought to author was trying to create an American Miss Marple which annoyed me a little.
However, on the whole not a bad book.

This review is from: A Body in the Backyard (A Myrtle Clover Mystery Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
I loved the book. I must say I was so pleased that there was no bad language, so pleasant from most books. The characters were good, and funny too at times. The suspense was great too. Myrtle is quite a character, sweet but delightful too and determined to fathom out the murderer.
A good read, light hearted, funny and a good suspense .
