Spring in Upper Michigan (Yooper) means TURKEY HUNTING TIME!!! and not all the blinds are being used for hunting. Of course when the local credit union is robbed at gunpoint no one is talking about turkeys. Why would you plan a robbery in a town where everyone is armed and ready? The plan falls apart when the gunman is shot dead but somehow the money is still missing.
“Faster than you can say “Tom Turkey,” Gertie, Cora Mae, and Kitty are on the case, in this hoot of a whodunit.”
Gertie Johnson is such a wonderful character that always tickles my funny bone. Her and her Trouble Busting friends trying to help the sheriff solve the crime will have you laughing from beginning to end.
Well written stories with fantastic characters in crazy situations. This entire series is so much fun to read. Light, entertaining and a great escape. These Yooper stories are a real treat.
About This Author
Deb Baker was born in the Michigan Upper Peninsula but now lives in Southeastern Wisconsin and she writes murder mysteries. Deb started out writing short stories and knew mystery was her genre when her husband pointed out that all my stories involved women killing their husbands. So far, she has written four Gertie Johnson Backwoods (Yooper) mysteries, a companion cookbook to go along with it, and a Christmas Adventure, four Dolls To Die For, and three Queen Bee mysteries as Hannah Reed. Book 4 in that series was released in December 2012.
All of her books were published traditionally. When they went out-of-print (except the bee series is still going strong), she asked for her rights back. Then she had the covers redesigned (She didn’t get cover rights back because those belong to the artist) and reissued them herself. Which she is really glad about because publishers don’t seem to give books much time to find readers.
She loves gardening, all things about nature, cooking, reading mostly mysteries but she recently discovered young adult, every sci-fi/fantasy movie that comes along, and spending time with friends and family.
You can also connect with her alter ego, Hannah Reed, who is younger and claims she is smarter than I am. Find her hanging out at her Facebook Page (where she talks mainly her books) or her Facebook Profile Page (where she socializes).
