Summary

When Myrtle's housekeeper is a murder suspect, she swears to Myrtle that she's squeaky clean.

It’s easy for fellow citizens to get on your nerves in sleepy Southern towns like Bradley, North Carolina. Particularly when one of the citizens is something of a cheapskate.

Amos Subers isn’t one to tip waiters, pay back a loan, or behave generously with family. When it’s discovered that penny-pinching Amos was actually quite wealthy, it hardly engenders goodwill in the small town...in fact, he’s heartily disliked.

Octogenarian sleuth Myrtle Clover’s housekeeper is certainly no fan of his: Amos owes Puddin money for cleaning his house. It’s not too surprising when Amos is later found, murdered, in his kitchen.

Myrtle and her senior sidekick, Miles, resolve to track down the killer when Puddin becomes a prime suspect...and before the murderer strikes again.

Clearing the way for a good book

I loved this mystery but it's not surprising as I have really enjoyed all of the books in this great series and at book 13 that is quite an accomplishment. This series shows no signs of losing its appeal, humour or even its creative plots and I am a captive audience. The reason I love it so much is the characters, they are just wonderful and as a group work so well together from the poorly sidekick, to the daughter in laws disastrous hobbies, to the son who has to sneak across to his mother's house for food because he doesn't want to upset the wife, the book club ladies and there disagreements of which book to read, all play a big part in why it is so much fun. The mystery was good and I liked that Puddin was the one in trouble, if like me you have been here from the start then you will know this character well and it was great to focus on her antics. I can't wait to make another trip to Bradley to catch up with my favourite Octogenarian and her sidekick.
It's hard enough to find a good cleaner in sleepy Southern town Bradley, so when you find one you hold on to them, no matter how bad they actually are. So when Puddin seems even more accident prone than normal, Myrtle does the unthinkable and asks her what's wrong. Only to find out that one of her other clients hasn't paid her and she is building herself up to collect her money from Amos. The problem is Wanda the Psychic predicts that Puddin is in danger but the warning arrives to late and Puddin walks in to find Amos dead. After a number of public arguments as she tried to get her money back Puddin is the number one suspect. If Myrtle doesn't want to lose her cleaner she, Miles, Wanda and even Puddin herself will have to prove Puddin innocent by finding the real killer, if only they could think like Sherlock Holmes.
I like the narrator and can't imagine anybody else playing the part of Myrtle and her friends. She sounds perfect and just how I imagine them.
