Publisher's Summary

In which a golden piglet is lost, given, received and discovered, and Gretel hits upon her most lucrative talent. 

In the sleepy Bavarian town of Gesternstadt, gossip was viewed by many as a local sport, a popular hobby, a harmless pastime that showed only the depth and enduring nature of the interest of one neighbour for another. In Gretel’s opinion, however, tittle-tattle sowed the seeds of malice among the fertile soil of jealousy, often watered by the tears of its victims. So it was that upon hearing from brother Hans of the whispers concerning a young woman, a married man and a thwarted lover, Gretel is compelled to rise from her beloved day bed to set things to rights. In doing so, she not only solves the crime but begins her new life as Detective Gretel....

Surprisingly enjoyable and yearn for more

Light hearted and good humor. I love the interaction between “sister mine” and “brother mine” to find that both are funny and despite flaws they succeed

Gretel’s new groove.

It seems as though Gretel, receiving the brains in the family is to begin a career. As a detective, her first case goes well and earns her some respect.
Gretel has a sign made for her new endeavor and is ready to go.

Not Worth It

Definitely leaves one with a That's It?? feeling...
After listening to the other books in this series I expected more from this short introduction than a few quickly thrown together words at such an inflated price.
