Quiet Anchorage, Virginia, is like any other sleepy small town until Jake Robbins is murdered, and his fiancée Megan Connors is arrested for it. The laidback, good ole boy Sheriff Roscoe Fox feels smugly confident he’s got the right culprit, Megan Connors, locked up in his jail. It’s a feather in his cap to help give his re-election campaign for town sheriff a boost. However, not all the townies believe Sheriff Fox has so niftily solved Jake’s murder. Megan’s feisty septuagenarian aunts, Isabel and Alma Trumbo, are angry with Sheriff Fox. They decide they better roll up their sleeves and get busy doing some shrewd detective work. They are avid mystery fans with their large home library filled with every whodunit they’ve read, so they know the tricks a clever killer might employ. They befriend the twentysomething Sammi Jo Garner who takes no guff off anybody and becomes the sisters’s assistant as they snoop away and unravel Jake’s murder mystery. Isabel and Alma also enlist the aid of their other local friends, the Three Musketeers, who are the gray-haired benchwarmers on Main Street, and Sammi Jo’s eccentric aunt Phyllis Garner. Together, they follow the right clues to track down Jake’s actual killer and clear Megan’s name. Everybody wishes they had a determined, loyal pair of aunts like Isabel and Alma Trumbo in their corner. This first book launches the humorous cozy mystery series that offers a clean read and a traditional whodunit. Join Isabel and Alma when they set off on their new life adventure as amateur sleuths that is as fun and challenging for them as it is for the reader.
