Shortly after the story runs, one of the four women, retired antiques dealer Violeta Bell, is murdered. Maddy wants no part of the investigation, but before she knows it, she's on another of her infamous snoopathons.
Was it bargains they were hunting or something else?

"Irascible, fearless and unapologetic, Maddy is a heroine cozy fans will embrace." (Publishers Weekly)
This is light reading with a simple story line. Maddy Sprouls is the crotchety newspaper librarian in the prerequisite small town full of the usual eccentric characters with secrets to hide. A murder ensues. Maddy solves it. End of story.
It's a good book for light reading, very light.
This is a good story with a good plot, lots of humor, a bit predictable, but fun. What bothers me is the reader whose voice belongs to a cartoon version of a fuddy duddy old fart. I know many women in their late sixties and none have this old fashioned tone. I believe that his book would have more weight if we could imagine a smart, older woman and not an Xtreme Ms Marple.
