(Shady Hoosier Detective Agency #2) by Daisy Pettles is hilarious! (Come on, even her writer's name is clever!)
This is book two in the series and is just as funny as book one. This one starts out chasing down who is the real baby daddy, then a murderer, a blackmailer, and then even more! It is non-stop craziness with the zany and colorful characters, plot, and hilarious situations the two aged women get into investigating crimes or getting clues. It has plenty of humor, wit, and action to keep me going through the book and before I know it I am finished!😢 Now I have to wait for the next book! Ugh!
Our two main characters of the Shady Hoosier Detective Agency mystery series are a couple of “elderly” ladies, Ruby Jane Waskom and Veenie Goens. Best friends all their lives the pair lean on each other with neither being rich and still needing to work to support themselves they have taken on working at the Shady Hoosier Detective Agency, what better job to put to use their nosy natures.
This time around the ladies think they have a simple case when Avonelle Apple hires them after her husband passed away and she immediately received a child support letter from a self-proclaimed mistress. Everything seemed like it would be easy enough until Avonelle’s son, Bromley, is found dead wearing a scarecrow costume.
The Shady Hoosier Detective Agency mystery series is definitely for those that are fans of an over the top quirky comedy cozy. There are just so many funny and hilarious moments involved with these characters in each of the books so far that it’s hard to even pay attention and try to guess the mystery instead of getting distracted with the antics. Being such a ton of fun from start to finish I’ll definitely keep an eye out for book three.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
For those of you who may be unaware, "Hoosiers" is the official name for those of us who are lucky enough to live in the midwestern state of Indiana. You can ask a dozen people where the nickname originated and you will receive a dozen different answers but it is now our official title. That said, this series with its quirky characters, often real-life Hoosier settings and true to life, ethnocentric humor, had me laughing-out-loud from start to finish. I adored the first book, The Ghost Busting Mystery, but The Baby Daddy Mystery was just too terrific, even better than the first!
Ruby Jane and Veenie are back and have been hired by one of the wealthiest women in town to verify the paternity of her late husband's mistress's children. However, the dead bodies soon begin to pile up as RJ and Veenie get closer to learning the truth. It doesn't help that it is spring in PawPaw County and everyone - literally - is having a spring fling with somebody else's spouse. What can I say? The Hoosier hills come alive in the spring time. ;)
These books are meant to be read with tongue in cheek. The joy of reading them is in their massive amount of humor and it comes in buckets. This one did, in fact, have a bit more actual sleuthing than the first and that made it a tad more enjoyable for me but I would read anything that featured RJ and Veenie. It is so incredibly rare for women their age to be featured as anything other than doddering old fuddy-duddies and I absolutely adore the fact that Veenie, well, is actually a lot like me! Now if only I could find that elusive pie hut I would be in heaven!
If you haven't read anything in this series yet - well, what are you waiting for!?
