It's a hair-raising ride when Gertie Johnson gets behind the wheel, and readers will enjoy the trip. Unique characters, headed by Gertie, drive the action when her neighbor is found dead with a bullet hole in the head, fired from his own gun. Gertie believes it was murder, but the local Sheriff (her own son) thinks Gertie is out of her mind--and the tries to prove it. Sometimes Gertie's her own worst enemy, but that also drives the humor as she somehow manages to wriggle out of one uncomfortable situation after another.

It took me ages to read this book, It just didn't excite me as much as other books I've read . It seemed to me that the story was all over the place. But that's probably just me lol. It's free so go ahead an give it a go, you can't lose anything by it.

I liked Gertie from the very first line. By the second chapter, I loved her. Living as she does, in an old established, traditional hunting community, she is one tough, stubborn lady. Recently widowed, her insistence on viewing every death in the neighbourhood as suspicious has more to do with her feelings of loss and loneliness than she is prepared to admit. There is great depth to this wonderful character and in fact, all the characters in this fast-paced story are vividly drawn. I thought the family love-hate relationships were brilliantly portrayed and must strike a chord with many readers. Poor, long-suffering Little Donny was a great character and I wished he'd been able to do just one thing right during his stay. Long may Gertie continue to give her son, Blaze and all of her UP neighbours cause for concern.

Gertie Johnson sets out to find a killer. On her way she gets 'dumped' with two of her friends all three of them are on the elderly side. Gertie gets warnings she should keep her nose out of things including an attempt on her life. Her son who happens to be the sheriff is useless and tries to prove Gertie does not have all her own 'marbles'.
It gets really unbelievable and silly at times.
It is a book you do not have to think about the plot as it leaves nothing for you to ponder as to who is the murderer and why.

This was a very unusual story.
The story is about sixty-six-year-old widow Gertie Johnson.
A neighbour of hers turns up dead.
Everyone thinks it's just a hunting accident but Gertie is suspicious.
Gertie is always investigating everything since her husband passed away.
Everyone things she is barking up the wrong end of the tree
and just causing trouble.
The story follows Gertie, her friends and her family
as she try's to find the truth.
I really enjoyed the story! It is fun, believable and exciting.
I really enjoyed the different characters and the fun things
Gertie gets up to in her quest.
I would highly recommend this book as a really
smiley fun read :-)
I give the book 5 out of 5!

An 'elderly' grandmother, supposedly in her dotage, but going down fighting and she gives the youngsters, including her son, the local Sheriff, a good run for the money. A very good murder mystery with a strong element of wry American country humour and many twists and turns. Gertie Johnson never gives up and won't let minor inconveniences, such as lack of a driving licence, or a Michigan winter, stop her in her endeavours to get at the truth behind some deaths of her neighbours - even to the point of putting her own life in danger.

This had me howling - in a good way. It was a setting - indeed a country - unfamiliar to me but I could really feel like I was there. Gertie herself was occasionally irritating but maybe that's a good thing - she was larger than life and yet managed to feel very "real" and I was rooting for her throughout, even when I wanted to shake her.

The mystery itself was slight but the way Gertie handled it, with her posse of friends, was great fun. It made me laugh out loud in places, and overall it was a very satisfying read.

I loved this quirky, funny detective(?), it was a super, quick and happy read. Ideal for bed, for on holiday, for on a long haul - just enjoy the spirit of it you will find it relaxing almost like a tonic!
