Ms Moseley skillfully pilots her readers on a second entertaining adventure in the life of Honey Huckleyberry.
This outing finds Miss Honey dining with famous author Twyman Towerie. Unfortunately for him, but not us, Twyman devours his meringued lemon pied dessert before his main meal. Satisfied he grins and proceeds to collapse face first into his mashed potatoes. True to nature, our book rep and amateur sleuth (again delightfully accompanied by her friend and sidekick Janie,) knows not all is what it seems. The escapade begins.
In addition to the return of Janie, childhood chum Steven Hyatt makes another appearance as well as accountant Steven Bondesky, and detective Silas Sampson. We don't see lover Harry Armstead this round but instead we're treated to his furry companion, Bailey.
"Grinning..." is a delightfully light and winsome mystery, easy to devour in page turning day.
Here's to knowing why I love potatoes,

"Grinning in His Mashed Potatoes" is a quirky, colorful tale that lives up to its endearingly eccentric title. Moseley's humorous and engaging prose is vividly brought to life with the return of Honey Huckleberry, book rep turned unlikely sleuth, and a wonderfully flawed cast of supporting characters who pool their strengths to reveal "whodunit" in the murder of the world's second best-selling author.
With its straight-forward plot line and its quirky, well-wrought characters, "Grinning in His Mashed Potatoes" brings to life a gentle and charming mystery whose only apparent flaw is that it leaves the reader hungering for a second helping of mashed potatoes.

Honey Huckleberry of Fort Worth works as a book representative for a respectable number of publishers. Her work keeps her on the road. Up until a year ago, Honey was a naive person. However, she becomes involved with a murder investigation (see THE FOURTH STEVEN) that matured her rapidly. Because of the subsequent publicity, the Friends of the Arlington Public Library invite her to their annual luncheon. She sits next to a famous author, Twyman Towerie.
Honey and Twyman were talking when he took his first bite of lemon pie and keeled down into his mashed potatoes. The police rule his death as natural causes, but Honey thinks otherwise. Her friends encourage Honey to investigate. She quickly learns that each of his ex-wives had reasons to see the author dead, but which one would cause it to happen is more difficult to prove.
Margaret Mosley, an Edgar Award nominee for her last book, has another winner on her hands with GRINNING IN HIS MASHED POTATOES. Honey's second appearance is a serio-comic mystery that will endear the heroine to the audience. The support cast is fantastic, especially Bailey the dog. The one-sitting tale also provides hints on the probable direction the series will take, which hopefully will occur soon.

Light as a Spring breeze but with a slam-bang ending, Margaret Moseley's latest page turner marks the true beginning of the Huckleberry dynasty.
The Fourth Steven introduced a naive book-agent and turned her into an unwilling amature detective. Now, in Grinning in his Mashed Potatoes, Honey Huckleberry begins to mature, with the help of her pal Janie, and by the end of the book, the pair have us hoping for more of the same. No barrage of red herrings ala traditional mystery here. Just good fun reading, an easy to follow plotline, a great cast and an ending you won't soon forget. Keep it coming!

Honey Huckleberry is back in another cozy mystery. Book rep. and want-to-be sleuth; Honey has a "feeling" that the famous author sitting next to her at a fund-raiser didn't just die. Could one of his four ex-wives have killed him? What about his last words that he uttered before his face hit the plate? With the help of her friend Janie and Steven (from The Fourth Steven), Honey is determined to find the killer. The characters and the atmosphere make this a fun mystery. It's not quite as dark as The Fourth Steven. Honey is now more comfortable with her life-style and new money. I am looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Honey Huckleberry (where DID that name come from, Margaret?) has broadened her horizons a bit since "The Fourth Steven" but she and the other characters are still a bit too wimpy and the mysteries too weak. I got spoiled reading another of Ms. Moseley's books first. PUH-LEEZE, Resurrect Bonita Faye!!!
