Old-Fashioned Murder

(2 customer reviews)


The madcap duo of Ryli and Aunt Shirley have teamed up for yet another heartily humorous adventure in the town of Granville in the latest rollicking tale by author Jenna St. James.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, Ryli Sinclair is in need of a front-page story for the Granville Gazette. Thankfully, it looks like Oak Grove Manor, the assisted living facility where Aunt Shirley lives, is just the hot bed of activity Ryli needs for a great story. Unfortunately, before Ryli can dig in too deep, Aunt Shirley is kicked out of the Manor for typical Aunt Shirley behavior. Now Ryli has no choice but to let Aunt Shirley stay with her.

When the discovery of a dead body at the Manor leads to a murder investigation, there is a silver lining for Ryli. Aunt Shirley will be allowed back at Oak Grove Manor when the murder gets solved. Between being chased by killer Chihuahuas, jumping out of two-story windows, and getting schnockered with the old ladies across the hall, Ryli and Aunt Shirley must track down the killer before bodies start to pile up at Oak Grove Manor. Can Ryli and Aunt Shirley apprehend the killer and get Aunt Shirley back in the Manor, or will Aunt Shirley’s time be up…in more ways than one?

    I really enjoyed this book. It is a very funny, light hearted old fashion murder with feisty characters that you can’t help but love. The mystery was good but it is the characters that make it so much fun, especially Aunt Shirley. This is book three in the series and having listened to all three books so far I can say that I enjoyed them all and highly recommend sitting back and enjoying a series that is going to have you laughing and glad that Aunt Shirley isn’t your embarrassing aunt.
    Ryli is looking for a story to run on the front page over Valentine’s day but is struggling coming up with something interesting enough. Aunt Shirley wants her to do a story on the missing items at the assisted living facility where she lives and also catch the theif at the same time. Ryli hopes she has finally found a story of love good enough, in the form of three best friends who have been there for each other through the lose of three husbands but before she can put pen to paper she is witness to several alterations between one of the residents. So when he is found dead the next morning Ryli and Shirley have to investigate even though nobody is certain it was murder. Accusing the staff isn’t the best way to go about it and the staff find a reason to kick Shirley out. If Ryli wants to be able to go out on her valentines date with her boyfriend she must find the thief and hopefully the killer first because Oak Grove manor won’t let Shirley back in until they do.
    I liked the narrator she uses a wide range of voices for the characters which makes them easy to tell apart.

    This book is a joy to read, great characters and a brilliant story. For a book about murder there are lots of real laughs all the way through, a plot that keeps you guessing and full of twists and turns.
    This is my first book from this author and definately not my last.
    This review is based on an audio book which I recieved for free and wanted to give an honest review.
