Gertrude, Gumshoe: Murder at Goodwill

(4 customer reviews)


Gertrude is back! When she finds a murder victim at her local Goodwill, she tries to tell the Sheriff’s Department everything she knows. Of course, they don’t listen. So of course, she must solve the mystery herself. And the only way she can figure to do this is to go undercover—as the Mattawooptock Goodwill’s newest team member. Anyone who knows Gertrude knows this probably isn’t the best idea. She’ll probably get fired. Or arrested. Or worse.

  1. Laura

    This is the second book in the Gertrude Gumshoe series. It is a standalone but seriously do not start here – get the first book in the series so you can completely enjoy Gertrude’s adventures into detective work.

    Gertrude is such a fun, humorous and quirky character. And her interactions with her neighbor Old Man Crow and her fellow employees at Goodwill are just laugh out loud funny. This is a completely original cozy that is so entertaining.

    The narrator, Darlene Allen, is the same narrator from the first book. She is pitch perfect in her portrayal of Gertrude and all of the other characters.

    This is the second book in the Gertrude Gumshoe series and even though I did enjoy it I preferred book one. Gertrude is the same nosy old lady who gets into trouble and every situation is life and death but there wasn’t enough suspects or questioning of them for my liking. Don’t get me wrong I did enjoy it and I will be listening to book three but the mystery wasn’t as good, more funny calamity after another.
    When Gertrude stumbles over a dead body while shopping at the local goodwill store for Christmas presents, she has no choice but to investigate when she buts heads with the policeman in charge. You see she saw the murder weapon before it went missing and when the policeman repeatedly tells her to stay out of it, she goes undercover as the newest employee. There is no better place to find the murder weapon than In one of the many many goodwill bins and at the same time she might just bag herself a killer.
    I like the narrator and thought she did a good job with portraying the elderly Gertrude.
    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request from audiobooksunleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

    So funny. I just love how Gertrude keeps getting herself in these crazy predicaments. I can’t wait to jump into the next book in the series.

    This was a very good audio book! I really enjoyed the narrator’s delivery of the story. The inflections and voice tones greatly added to the story line. The plot was excellent and kept you guessing. The book was very well written. This is perfect for the cozy mystery fan who wants something refreshing and original. The main character is a spitfire.
