Présentation de l'éditeur

Yooper Mystery #1, Murder Passes the Buck
From National Bestselling Author, Deb Baker

When her neighbor is shot and killed, sixty-six-year-old widow Gertie Johnson seizes the opportunity to move on with her life by investigating his death. Gertie is abetted (and hindered) by her grandson Little Donny, man-hungry best friend Cora Mae, and word-of-the-day challenger, Kitty. It doesn’t help that the death has been ruled an accident by the sheriff of this backwoods community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Or that Sheriff Blaze Johnson happens to be Gertie’s son.

Whether it’s interrogating neighbors, spying, or impersonating the FBI—not to mention staying one step ahead of Blaze—Gertie will do whatever it takes to solve the case, even when the killer takes aim at her.

Praise for the series:
“Laugh-out-loud funny” Crimespree Magazine

“Fans of Janet Evanovich, imagine Grandma Mazur with a shotgun.” Green Bay Press Gazette

“One of the most memorable heroines in recent crime fiction.” Lansing State Journal

(March 2011 new cover design by Patricia Ryan)

Une Miss Marple bien plus dans notre siècle. Une mamie aux cheveux orange qui aime mettre son nez où il ne faut pas pour notre plus grand plaisir.

Par Marjie, Mother of 9 - Publié sur

Gertie Johnson, recently widowed, lives on three 40's (40 acre tracts of land) on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, fondly referred to as "UP" throughout the books. In addition to her house, her land contains a house in which one of her daughters, and her son, the sheriff, lives. One day, a neighbor (the term is used loosely, since most folks live on tracts in multiples of 40 acres) is found shot in his hunting blind. Gertie, thinking the sheriff is passing this off too easily as a hunting accident, starts investigating as if it is an actual murder. It's kind of a funny story, with some amusing (and some annoying) characters. Oh, and her son is taking her to court to have her declared incompetent, because she won't stay out of his business. Just another amusing side line in this book.

Maybe if I was from the UP I would understand the eccentricities better of the main character. From my point of view, she's paranoid, cranky, anti-government and highly critical of friends and family for superficial reasons. She's not a likable character. I'm of a similar age, so this isn't age discrimination. The writing and composition is competent, the plot fairly interesting with a regional flair. I just don't really like any of the characters, and therefore, didn't care very much what happened to them.

Murder Passes the Buck is the first in a series of Gertie Johnson Murder Mysteries.
Overall, I wasn't completely enthralled with this book, it was just OK and there were a couple of things which really made me frown and wonder what the author was thinking of when she included these incidents in the plot. The most confusing was why Gertie's son, Blaze, insists on taking his mother to court to have her confirmed to be incompetent to manage her own affairs and placed under his guardianship! Also, Blaze never acknowledges his mother's contribution in solving the murder case, which she virtually does single-handedly. There were other mystifying incidents too, but, nothing quite as unsettling as the behaviour of Gertie's son, who was as dislikeable a character as I have come across in a while.
Having said that, overall I found the story amusing at times and as Gertie and her friends are a little off-the-wall, they are quite entertaining. It was an easy and quick read, however, I doubt I will look out for other Gertie Johnson Mysteries.

this was a really great and funny book. this is almost like a Stephanie plum book, but with an older lady like that grandma lol

this book is about a lady named Gertie. she is old and a widow. She lives on a farm and her son is the sheriff of the town. Nothing really happens in this little town so when a fellow neighbor gets shot in the head Gertie gets suspicious.

everyone said it was a hunting accident. Gertie knew it was a murder. her son told her to stay out of the way and to go home. Gertie told everyone that the police where not doing a good job, and she was going to do it herself.

Gertie broke into the old man's home who was dead and found out that it was destroyed. someone was already in there looking for something. She took out her little notebook and started to take notes. Gertie started talking about the murder to her best friend. she now has 2 friends working with her to figure out what was going on.

her son, the sheriff got angry with her questioning people in town so he took her to court because he said that she was to old to take care of herself and also her money. The funny thing is Gertie refused to get a lawyer and was planning on telling the judge herself what was going on and that she was sane. Gertie then started to get threatened and her house was also destroyed. She knew she was getting close.

this book will have you guessing who the murder is and also all the little issues Gertie gets herself into and how she handles them. if you read any of the Stephanie plum books you would understand. this book will have you laughing and not wanting to put it down.

This book was a hoot. I have never before come across a character like Gertie Johnson. She is 66, a kind of a hillbilly, and proud of it too. She knows how to shoot a gun, loves spending time alone in her deer blind, but will never shoot an animal. Not even when her grandson Littly Donny keeps missing, and she really could use some venison for her freezer.
Her son Blaze, whom she named after Clint Eastwood's horse, is the local sheriff. But he is already looking towards his retirement and not really doing much investigating. Which leaves it up to Gertie to find her neighbours killer. Blaze keeps warning her off of his case, but Gertie can't leave it up to him. She hasn't watched all those CSI shows for nothing. With her friend Cora Mae, and her new bodyguard Kitty, she sets out to follow her leads, and ask questions of unsuspecting people.
But her troubles are not just about finding out who killed Chester. Her very own son is trying to get the court to make him her legal guardian. Which means he can control what she does, and especially her money. I really have no idea if he really truly believes she needs a keeper, he thinks she has changed after his father died a little over a year ago (which seems very normal to me!). Or is he just after the money she took from the bank and hid somewhere?

And no matter the unorthodox methods Gertie uses, she does find clues and stuff, and gets threatened in the process. She is blunt, but she also has a very big heart. She is not so fond of her mother in law though, and Grandma Johnson just might be her new housemate ...

I enjoyed this first book in the series, it is very original, and Gertie really is something different. The setting, the language used, the characters, it was a fun read. And of course, the mystery part was very well done too. My thoughts were going in the wrong direction, especially about those mineral rights. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.

7 stars.
