Someone has killed Amos Gardner, one of the leading citizens of Brookdale. The sheriff wonders if it has something to do with the lawsuit Amos filed against his own granddaughter, Lizzie Crenshaw. When someone tries to kill Amos' wife, she points the finger at Lizzie, who must work with the new deputy to figure out what is going on before she is either thrown in jail...or becomes a victim herself.
Death of a Cantankerous Old Coot
I loved the story. It did have some surprising moments in it, and the end was a total surprise. The ending didn’t end like I like my stories to end, but hopefully there will be a strange ending and end before the next generation begins. I recommend it to every. Good book!
I enjoyed reading this novella. It’s not a deep mystery, it’s almost humorous. It was enjoyable to read. Realizing I’m glad I’m not related to them. Keeping track of who was related was tricky. But, the writing flows well and the descriptions of everything were great. Along with some romance thrown in!
