Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Imogene Duckworthy, eager PI assistant, wants to be on her own. She finds a rental house where her four-year-old daughter, Nancy Drew Duckworthy, and Drew's pet pig, Marshmallow, are allowed. The rumors are that the house is haunted. It's no rumor there's a dead man in the bathtub when she inspects the house, though. A long-lost relative is the logical suspect, but can Immy let her Uncle Dewey be railroaded for a crime he, possibly, didn't commit?

Imogene Duckworthy is back. She is looking for her own house so she and her daughter Drew can move out of her mother’s single-wide in Saltlick, TX. The problem with most of the rentals is the owners do not want a pig living there. Don’t get me wrong, Marshmallow is the sweetest pot-bellied pig around. However, he is still a pig. The very last house that Jersey Shorr shows Immy is the one she has fallen in love with. The price is right - it will need plenty of fixing up. Good thing her boyfriend, Deputy Ralph Sandoval, is handy with tools. Plus - the house is said to be haunted. Our Immy wants to know if there will be a price reduction if she gets rid of said ghost.

The owner left plenty of old furniture. Immy will decide later what she will use. Jersey and Immy head upstairs to the bedrooms and find a man asleep in one of the beds. He quickly dresses and leaves. Why does he look familiar to Immy? The police are called and the intruder is caught. It turns out the intruder is Immy’s Uncle Dewey. Immy decides to rent the house and goes back to Shorr Realty. When all the paperwork is completed, Vance Valentin, another realtor takes Immy back to the house so she can complete her tour. This time they don’t find anyone sleeping in the beds. They do find a very dead body in the bathtub. The police think Dewey is the prime suspect. Immy doesn’t believe he is a murderer – a con man yes – a murderer no. Immy will have to put her detective skills to the test. She better be very careful or she could end up possessed.

Things to ponder: Why is Vance Valentin interested in the old furniture in Immy’s rental house? What knocked the chandelier into Vance’s face? Who was Drew talking to in the middle of the night?

I've read Choke and Smoke and now Broke, and I must say that Broke was my favorite! I read it in just a couple of days because once I got started, I couldn't put it down. This book is a real page-turner and a good mixture of scary mystery and silly fun. Looking forward to reading more from Kaye George!

Imogene Duckworthy, her daughter, and their potbelly pig move into a tumble-down place that some say is haunted. Imogene’s not worried about a ghost, but there’s nothing fictional about the dead guy in the tub or her uncle trespassing in the house.

On the cusp of becoming a P.I., Imogene decides to solve the case. Her precipitous action puts her in harm’s way and riles up her neighbor, her landlord, and her realtor.

Lots of laugh-out-loud moments in George’s mystery. It was easy to read and to keep the characters straight. My fav character? Hardworking and very handy boyfriend, Ralph.
