Publisher's Summary

There just isn't enough crime in Mattawooptock, so Gertrude has to convince Calvin to go to the big city - Portland, where she will go undercover as the newest slam poet on the scene. But have any actual crimes been committed, or is this just Gertrude's wild imagination at work?

I love Gertrude!

Gertrude decides she needs another case to work on, so this time she looks to the big city to find one. Is there really a connection between the deaths that have recently occurred, or were they all accidents? Follow along as Gertrude participates in a poetry slam to try and find out the answers to her many questions.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

entertaining

that story was adorable and entertaining. Gertrude reminds me of myself. always wanting the answers, not caring how I get them and assuming that certain people will be there when I need them...which they usually are. Gertrude may be wrong about who did it but she still solved the case. I say good for you Gertrude!!!

A great story with a fiesty senior sleuth!

This is a very original and humorous audio book! The main character is a spunky elderly woman, who certainly doesn't see age as a limiting factor. She solves murders and drags her friends and acquaintances along for the ride. The story is quirky and fun. The narrator does a good job with the different characters of varying ages and backgrounds. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Possibilities

The overall story premise was interesting. One comical scene of Gertrude driving backwards brought a smile to my face but really that's all I found funny in this proclaimed comical mystery. Gertrude, the elderly sleuth, believes there is a link between poetry readers deaths even though many look like an accident. A different narrator may have brought more humor tones; there were awkward pauses in the dialogue and at the end of chapters that had me checking my phone to ensure the audible app had not closed.
