    "Not a favorite cozy mystery"

    I like cozy mysteries, but just couldn't get into this one. To me the main character was just a nosy, meddlesome octogenarian with too much time on her hands and snooping where she shouldn't. I felt sorry for her son, but felt he gave her more information than he should have. There were parts that were meant to be funny, but just didn't even make me smile. Since I have the other two books in the series I can just hope I like them better.

    "Life after 80 in a cozy mystery?"

    Everyone knows everyone in eighty something,Myrtle Clover's small southern town. Myrtle finds her excitement a little lacking these days. She has already inserted herself in her policeman son, Red's, last murder case. He worries about his mom and would like to see her in a safe assisted living home.

    Unfortunately, there's another murder, the owner of the local beauty salon as become verbally abusive in her too frequently drunken states. So when she's found stabbed with her hairdressing sheers, at the bottom of her shop's stairs, there are a lot of potential suspects. Myrtle just wants to "chat" with the towns folks to "help" Red with his investigation. She and her male friend don't sleep well at night, and tend to roam around at odd hours too. Will this get her into trouble with the killer, or help her find a murderer?

    Cute mystery with all typical townsfolk range from toddlers to the octogenarian; singles and married; flashy and totally prudish. Does life really begin after 60?

    "THE DAME OF DEDUCTION"

    THIS A GREAT STORY BY ELIZABETH SPANN CRAIG. SO CLEVERLY WRITTEN AND NARRATED BY JEAN RUDA HABRUKOWICH. WHAT IS A SHAME IS THIS IS THE LAST BOOK OF THE SERIES FOR ME TO READ, WHICH IS DISTRESSING, AS IT GAVE ME MANY HOURS OF PLEASURE. I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS WILL BE THE LAST OF MYRTLE CLOVER, SHE IS WAY TO SMART AND CLEAVER CHARACTER TO LET DRIFT AWAY INTO THE MIASMA OF THE UNIVERSE. I THINK RAYMOND CHANDLER SAID IT BEST: "There is something about the literary life that repels me, all this desperate building of castles on cobwebs, the long-drawn acrimonious struggle to make something important which we all know will be gone forever in a few years, the miasma of failure which is to me almost as offensive as the cheap gaudiness of popular success."
    -Raymond Chandler

    SO, PLEASE ELIZABETH, MORE BOOKS OF MYRTLE SOON, PLEASE. I WILL BE WAITING.
