After many weeks of sweat and anxiety and….late nights I can finally announce the release of Granny Pins A Pilferer. This is the fifth book in the Fuchsia, Minnesota Series. Over the next week or so I will introduce you to the characters in Granny Pins A Pilferer. But for now, here is the back cover description:
Granny is at it again! When Granny accompanies her friend Mavis to the Next To The Last Resting Place nursing home to visit Mavis’ sister, Beulah, both women are shocked to find the new resident dead. Granny, being the amateur detective she is, suspects foul play, and soon she and her entire family concoct a plan to investigate possible shady doings at the nursing home. Granny will enter the home incognito and attempt to determine how Beulah met her suspicious demise. All this happens while Granny’s new husband Silas is entangled in his own dangerous mess. Someone has just blown up his house and Silas (a former detective) is out to discover the culprit, even as he worries about Granny’s safety in the home. As more nursing home residents fall victim to a strange and sudden “memory loss virus,” Granny engages the aid of her friends to get to the bottom of what turns out to be a very complex and complicated plot.
And this is what the early readers had to say about my book:
“Granny in the wrinkle farm? Unthinkable! Going undercover to catch a killer? Now, there’s the Granny we know and love. Hold onto your cane because this adventure is full of twists and turns before it rolls to a very satisfying conclusion. Can’t wait to see what Granny will do next!”
The Jake and Emma Mysteries
“A fun romp through the looking glass to fantastic Fuchsia, MN, where Granny proves, once again, there’s no rest for the wrinkled.”
J. B. Hawker
Award winning author of the Bunny Elder and First Ladies Club series–including the recently released A Corpse In The Chapel“
“A madcap roller coaster ride full of twists and turns and laugh-out-loud fun. All the characters you’ve come to love return plus a few new friends and critters. It’s the best Granny yet!”
President, Twin Cities Sisters In Crime
This verbally witty comedic mystery is another hit for Julie Seedorf.
Diane Weiner, author of the Susan Wiles Schoolhouse Mysteries
This was a hard book for me to write. Granny has a reputation and I wanted to stay true to her character yet address a very serious subject also, the subject of Alzheimer’s. I dedicated this book to some of my family. There has been a little controversy involving Granny’s forgetfulness in my earlier books with the criticism that if I ever had anyone with Alzheimer’s then I would not make light of forgetfulness. But I do that because unless we can find the humor in small things we would cry with grief. So I dedicated this book to my mother-in-law, Dorothy Seedorf, sister-in-law Audrey Giese and brother-in-law Evan Seedorf. We loved them all very much. This book in a small way addresses the disease. And for those of you coping with a loved ones illness, it is not easy. Look for the small moments of joy.
