Christy's free-spirited Aunt Bobbie loves collecting oddities for her new trash-to-treasure shop in Summer Breeze, Florida. She's the most popular eccentric in town---until a body is discovered in her pickle barrel! Now the community's turned sour, and Bobbie is suspect number one. Can Christy find the real killer and free Bobbie from her "dill"-emma? 352 pages, softcover from Waterbrook.
To the joy of her niece mystery writer Christy Castleman and the chagrin off her pious strait-laced sister and Minster brother-in-law, Bobbie Bodine comes to Summer Breeze for the first time in three or four years. Bobbie is a free spirit who enjoys turning someone?s trash into another person?s treasure. As such she has opened up a shop in town to do so. Unbeknownst to Bobbie is that her former spouse Eddie and his girlfriend Roseann Cole are following her and now her niece because he believes she stole $10,000 from him and he needs it back to pay off a dangerous IOU in which his body is collateral. Unbeknownst to Eddie is that enforcer Tony Paneda is stalking Bobbie too because he expects Eddie to show up shortly. Everything comes to a head when someone murders Eddie with Bobbie as the prime suspect. The local Red Hatters who have adopted her and her niece begin to investigate because none of them trust the police to look past Aunt Bobbie. Bobbie?s attitude that you can be deeply religious but also enjoy life to the fullest refreshes the inspirational amateur sleuth sub-genre as like her niece and much of the townsfolk her lust for life is infectious. The whodunit investigation starts toward the middle of the strong story line as initially the audience meets the key players and how they relate to one another. Peggy Darty provides a delightful charmer as Christy and the Red Hatters (mindful of Fern Michaels? Sisterhood) try to prove that Aunt Bobbie did not kill her late mate. Harriet Klausner
One Woman's Trash Is Another Woman's Mystery...
When mystery writer Christy Castleman's Aunt Bobbie storms into town, she brings a burst of wild wind to quiet Summer Breeze, Florida-and new life to the junk she scavenges for her trash-to-treasure shop, I Saw It First.
Bobbie enjoys restoring beauty to flawed items, and her free-spirited approach to life attracts a range of Summer Breezers, including members of the local Red Hat chapter, crusty widower Jack, and Christy's roguish brother, Seth. Bobbie's battered red truck becomes a familiar sight around the coastal hamlet-loaded down with such odd items as a huge old pickle barrel-and her electric presence lights up the Blues Club in the evenings.
But the fun and games turn deadly when Eddie Bodine, Bobbie's ex-husband, is found dead in her pickle barrel. As compelling evidence mounts against Bobbie, can Christy and the Red Hatters expose the real killer before lively Aunt Bobbie is locked away for good?
