Here's what people are saying about the Series:
"Very entertaining, makes you giggle. A light fun read, with lovable characters. I found it easy to keep up with all of them. Certainly a break from the mysteries I usually read . Fun " Amazon Review- Gumboots, Gumshoes & Murder
"I enjoyed this book. It had some unusual characters, some of the animal variety. The murder plot left you wondering where it was going until late in the story. The story isn't quite a cliffhanger but you need to read the next book to see where the story is headed." Amazon Review- Gumboots, Gumshoes & Murder
"Very Enjoyable Read. The story was interesting and entertaining. Having had an opinionated pig I can certainly empathize with the action created by the pair. Frankly, they stole the book." Amazon Review- The Dastardly Mr. Deeds
"I really liked this book. I laughed, got mad, shaped open mouthed at the antics and characters. It's like a mystery soap opera." Amazon Review- The Dastardly Mr. Deeds
"Great read. Hilarious with some serious twists and turns. Well written and keeps your interest. The characters are all believable. Down to earth clean reading." Amazon Review - Murder Most Fowl
"Good times. Betty has a mess on her hands again. Her pig found treasure and now everyone wants it. A flasher is also on the loose. Add in a cow, a few dogs, and guns you have a wild time." Amazon Review- Gertrude & The Sorcerer's Gold
