Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot
by Elaine Faber
Mrs. Odboddy, Hometown Patriot:
A WWII tale of chicks and chicanery, suspicion and spies.
(Mrs. Odboddy Mysteries Book 1)
Since the onset of WWII, Agnes Agatha Odboddy, hometown patriot and self-appointed scourge of the underworld, suspects conspiracies around every corner…stolen ration books, German spies running amuck, and a possible Japanese invasion off the California coast. This seventy-year-old, model citizen would set the world aright if she could get Chief Waddlemucker to pay attention to the town’s nefarious deeds on any given Meatless Monday.
Mrs. Odboddy vows to bring the villains, both foreign and domestic, to justice, all while keeping chickens in her bathroom, working at the Ration Stamp Office, and knitting argyles for the boys on the front lines.
Imagine the chaos when Agnes’s long-lost WWI lover returns, hoping to find a million dollars in missing Hawaiian money and rekindle their ancient romance. In the thrilling conclusion, Agnes’s predictions become all too real when Mrs. Roosevelt unexpectedly comes to town to attend a funeral and Agnes must prove that she is, indeed, a warrior on the home front.
Praise for Mrs. Odboddy, Hometown Patriot
The tension built nicely throughout Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot.
This book is everything I hoped for – mystery, romance, humor, and a setting that I find fascinating.
