Oops A Dead Body

The Valentine’s surprise wasn’t flowers or chocolate.

Maribelle Rosen, a Jewish grandmother and friends, Kate Flannery and Annie Fitzsimmons, also grandma’s but Irish Catholics, discover a murder. This debut cozy mystery contains Irish wisdom and Yiddish humor to soften the threats of their beloved North Hollywood. The ladies run amok at a second homicide. Their friend, Harry Barry has his own masculine theories and interferes. More lady friends enter the fray with differing opinions. Jimmy Choo Shoes and lunches take on more importance than crime. Amid the chaos, Maribelle Rosen vows to find the killer against everyone’s advice, including Detective O’Malley’s. Abandoned and threatened, she birddogs the suspect and gets into trouble. This yenta grandmother won’t quit. Even when she’s called to babysit her granddaughter, she tells her son she can’t because “she’s visiting a neighbor” but neglects to mention, “A neighbor beginning rigor mortis.”
