    The fourth Gertie Johnson Mystery is as quirky and hilarious as the first three Deb Baker has set her characters smack dab in the middle of Michigan s Upper Peninsula, which happens to be my home In addition, the real town of Rock where I lived for ten years is only thinly disguised as the fictional town of Stonely Although I met some kooky characters, none of them were quite as eccentric as Gertie and her friends Obese Kitty keeps her hair in pin curls, wears revealing housedresses, and The fourth Gertie Johnson Mystery is as quirky and hilarious as the first three Deb Baker has set her characters smack dab in the middle of Michigan s Upper Peninsula, which happens to be my home In addition, the real town of Rock where I lived for ten years is only thinly disguised as the fictional town of Stonely Although I met some kooky characters, none of them were quite as eccentric as Gertie and her friends Obese Kitty keeps her hair in pin curls, wears revealing housedresses, and studies Law over the Internet Cora Mae fancies herself a hairdresser and hasn t met a man she couldn t love Gertie, Kitty and Cora Mae comprise the members of an investigative operation called the Trouble Busters that, somehow, never seems to make any money, and frequently runs afoul of the law And the law happens to be Blaze Johnson, Gertie s son.Deb Baker s plots are always well thought out and MURDER BITES THE BULLET is no exception Harry Aho opens a shooting range right next to his neighbor Chet Hanson s property Chet hires Gertie to find out if the range can be shut down When Harry is murdered at his kitchen table, Harry s sons hire Gertie to find out if Chet is the culprit The main factor that makes this tale so special is the outrageous antics of the characters Definitely a cozy that will make you laugh

    Gertie Johnson and the Trouble Busters have been hired by Chet Hanson to dig up some dirt any kind at all on Harry Aho The reason Harry opened a public shooting range on his property, right next door to Chet s own land Chet swears he ll shut down the range any way he can, but he insists that doesn t include murdering Harry Nevertheless, someone shot Harry while he sat at his kitchen table, and the Aho sons Gus and Martin are convinced Chet did it With Harry dead, Chet refuses to pay the Gertie Johnson and the Trouble Busters have been hired by Chet Hanson to dig up some dirt any kind at all on Harry Aho The reason Harry opened a public shooting range on his property, right next door to Chet s own land Chet swears he ll shut down the range any way he can, but he insists that doesn t include murdering Harry Nevertheless, someone shot Harry while he sat at his kitchen table, and the Aho sons Gus and Martin are convinced Chet did it With Harry dead, Chet refuses to pay the Trouble Busters for their services Because of that, Gertie feels free to accept the Aho boys money to try to prove Chet was the killer Unfortunately, Cora Mae falls head over heels in love with Chet, and pretty soon it looks like the Black Widow Cora Mae has already buried three husbands will be marching down the aisle again Gertie s investigation is complicated by a moonshine operation being carried out on National Park land, her 92 year old mother in law s love of whiskey, and her own loss of half a head of hair don t ask how just read the book This story is shorter than the three previous Gertie Johnson mysterieson the order of a novella but jam packed with glorious characters working their way through a clever plot I d recommend this book as a fun read for anyone who enjoys amateur sleuth mysteries

    Gertie Johnson is my hero She s a 60 year old woman with red hair, driving without a license , carries a shotgun, has two sidekicks, has a running fight with her son and mother in law and still has time to solve crimes Her sidekicks are just downright hilarious Cora Mae hasn t met a man she doesn t like love, and Kittie drives like a NASCAR driver I loved this series.
