Publisher's Summary

Armed with Salem’s “Smart-Enuff” phone and Viv’s racing model Cadillac (with aggressive acceleration!), these two amateur super-sleuths set out to catch a gang of armed robbers terrorizing G-Ma’s neighborhood...if for no other reason than to stop G-Ma’s panic-stricken calls every time a car drives by. The only problem: They have no leads, no clues, and they accidentally got arrested for “moral crimes”. Will these bandits be the ones who got away? Or will they be caught in the crotchfire?

Salem's on the case!

Salem, everyone's favorite recovering alcoholic, and Viv, her wild, lead-footed octogenarian sidekick, are back for another adventure, This time around a gang of armed thieves are wreaking havoc in G-Ma's neighborhood and it's up to the umm...dysfunctional duo to set things right. Like the previous entries in the series, there are plenty of laughs to be had as Salem and Viv get into all sorts of crazy hijinks. But also like the previous books, it's not all just silly fun. There is a real depth to Salem, a woman who hasn't always made the right choices in her life and who is now struggling to be a better person. You just can't help but root for her. Once again Sandra Murphy does an excellent job with the narration. I especially love how she brings Viv to life, such a fun character. I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Excellent all around

I've read the entire series and am listening through them again. The narrator is excellent and does the story justice. It is a joy.

Well written

Another fun Christian Cozy Mystery read (not my usual genre). Witty banter and lovable characters fill every page. This was a hard read as far as topic, but was well written. Warning: there are triggers in this book if you have survived sexual assault. Had I known this, I wouldn't have read it.

Funny but also sad story

Salem and Viv are out to find the criminal gang haunting the neighborhood. G-Ma is trying to hold down the fort at her hotel, but every sound makes her think she's being invaded. Salem is almost finished with her probation officer and she's trying to come out of debt.

There are some funny parts in this book. Much of it reminds me of Stephanie Plum. But there are dark parts, where Salem revisits the childhood horrors that she experienced.

This is the first book I've read by this author. It kept my interest, but I probably should have read the earlier books in the series first.

I listened to an audio version of this book. The narrator was excellent and she had great voices for each character.

I received a copy of the audio book from the author. This is my honest review.

A cozy with hard truths

I was a fan of Salem's from the first listen. Any chance to get into an audiobook with Salem, Viv and the rest of the characters is fine by me.

In this installment, there isn't a murder to solve, but there is a string of robberies on G-ma's side of town. She's so spooked and generally trigger happy that Salem fears there might be an accidental shooting. Then there's the plot with Salem's mom back in her life as she's about to get married. Again. Then there's Salem trying to fix things with Tony.

I really enjoy Salem as a character because she's really flawed, but she's sincere. She's in AA and she's a new Christian. She tries to take those lessons to heart. This could be called a Christian cozy because she's really trying to live the life, but that doesn't mean it's squeaky clean. Salem has some really hard conversations in this book with her mother and with Tony about things that happened in the past, particularly her sexual abuse. While this may be hard for some listeners to hear, it's done sensitively with the goal of Salem healing from past trauma.

Sandra Murphy's performance is good with skill in a variety of character voices. She uses her instrument to tell the story not try to get attention for itself.

Definitely recommended for cozy mystery fans. If any of the elements (Lubbock, Texas setting; addition and recovery; new Christians; friends with an age gap, main characters with pet dogs) appeal to you, pick up this book!

Caught with a good book

I enjoyed this book. Although it is in the mystery genre I am not sure I would call it that. Don't get me wrong there is a mystery but the home life drama is very much the focus of the story and what a story it is. I normally prefer stories that focus on the mystery and investigation side of things but Salem has dragged me into her life and I was hooked wanting to find out what was to become of her and her dysfunctional life. She certainly has her problems and will have everyone rooting for to get her happy ending, this is because it is well written and tugs at your heart strings. Despite all the drama and seriousness of the story it is still a humours adventure that will have you chuckling over the mishaps and antics of some of the great characters. The mystery surrounds the fact that somebody is stealing from all the business in town and unlike most cozy mysteries the main character is encouraged to investigate and help out the police, although I am not sure if I call it helping of causing more chaos. Good fun what ever you call it and I can't wait for the next book.
A gang of armed robbers are terrorising the town and Salem's G-Ma's just knows her motel is going to be next. Armed with her phone and shotgun she is ready for them. Salem just hopes the police catch the culprits before G-Ma kills a paying guest. The police have no clues and so far nobody has got hurt but how long will that last? Salem has enough worries over another one of her mother's weddings, car troubles, dog that doesn't like to be left behind and a new smart phone that could just possibly smarter than her but Viv still manages to convince her they should be keeping the town safe and especially G-Ma by catching the thieves themselves.
Sandra Murphy is one of my favourite narrator's and I am so glad she is narrating this series and another very great reason why you should give this book ago. She never puts in a bad performance.

"" Cast your burden on the Lord. "

378 days sober, former drunk, Salem, with her brand new 'local' smart phone, her needy dog, Stump, and.enthusiastic elderly friend, Viv, decide that the police investigations of some local robberies were not being conducted enthusiastically enough so started nosing around themselves. As a detective mystery book, it's definitely unusual, more an incompetent muddling, funny, but sometimes heart rending.
Told in the first person, there's plenty of room for self doubt and recrimination - Salem hadn't been a very nice person in the past. But for all that, she engages the reader's empathy as does her disreputable, snippy old companion, Viv. Salem's character is effectively, and delightfully, captured by narrator Sandra Murphy in her fine performance - good pacing and modulation and strong Texan accent combined with full 'in persona' angst and emotion. Her other character voices are good, too. Superb. After almost twelve hours of listening, this reader was really sad when it finished.
This whole series has been such fun, well written with totally quirky characters conducting bizarre investigations. Yes, there is a lot of God stuff, which would usually have me groaning and putting the book aside, but it's not the sickly sweet smiles and self congratulations usually preached at the reader. This is a God mixing the pot.

I was most fortunate at being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of Caught in the Crotchfie, by the rights holder. Thank you so much. I hope there will be more to come in this hilarious Trailer Park series. Recommended? Absolutely
