The more you read about the adventures of Myrtle Clover, the funnier they become. A highly opinionated octogenarian who is determined to solve the crimes (mainly murder) in her home town by bullying her neighbour into being Watson to her Sherlock is very entertaining. One can understand the exasperation of her son but also support Myrtle in her determination to remain independent. The characters develop with each novel and the whole provides an insight into rural life in the US.
