Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot
by Elaine Faber

The tension built nicely throughout Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot.
~Back Porchervations

This book is everything I hoped for – mystery, romance, humor, and a setting that I find fascinating.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…

In Elaine Faber’s brand new series Mrs.Odboddy Hometown patriot you will meet a fun and witty cast of characters, a fresh new story and enjoy hours of fast-paced humorous reading.
~Shelley’s Book Case

…the historical setting is well-researched and well rendered, and the writing is strong.
~The Ninja Librarian

I loved this book and especially its main character, she is an old woman really smart, funny and ironic, the ideal grandmother.

This book has everything a cozy should have- danger, odd characters, unusual circumstances, wacky names. With a name like Odboddy you expect it to be silly. The book delivers with a punch and so much more!
~Laura’s Interests


I loved this story it was great full of funny situations that make you laugh along with mystery and adventure and even Mrs. Roosevelt makes an appearance.
~Community Bookstop

This was a quirky cozy that was filled with quirky characters, Mrs. Oddbody being the quirkiest of all. She was hilarious at times.
~Melina’s Book Blog

Set in a small town on the Southern California coast, Mrs. Odboddy is a book filled with traditional American themes, a couple of intriguing mysteries, and the reminder that everyone, regardless of one’s age, needs to be willing to make whatever sacrifice is needed by your country.

Mrs. Odboddy, Hometown Patriot:
A WWII tale of chicks and chicanery, suspicion and spies.
(Mrs. Odboddy Mysteries Book 1)

Publisher: Elk Grove Publications (January 21, 2016)
Paperback: 258 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1940781136




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.
