There’s a lot of cozy mysteries out there, but so far I’ve only found a few that are really hilarious. For me, this first adventure of Gertie Johnson, a sharp sixty-six-year-old widow in the wacky wilds of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, hits all the right notes. Oddball minor characters Goofy situations (there’s a stakeout that goes terribly, terribly wrong…) And best of all, Gertie herself, who tells the story with a laconic understatement that’s relentless in its perfect pitch.
