How Many Old Ladies Will Die is a very enjoyable cozy mystery about a bunch of old women dying. Is there a reason for this or is there a serial killer on the loose? This is a Marge Christensen Mystery novel #5. This is my first listen by this author and this narrator. I truly enjoyed listening to this book and I particularly like how the narrator captured Grandmas mixed up words. Grandma had a possible stroke or something, they weren't quite sure what, but when Grandma tried to speak, all her words came out mixed up & garbled. Since Grandma had this happen to her, her daughter had her put in a home until she was better.
We follow along with Marge, Grandma, and some other family members (even a grand daughter) as they try to discover if Grandma really saw anything or if it was just in grandmas head. Many parts in this book are very creative & quirky. I even found some laughs in it. I loved how the cops always tried to get Marge to let them do the police work, yet she was always there one step ahead of them. Marge's husband is also a detective in Michigan and the detective on the case even asks Marge is her husband had any better luck keeping her out of his business (too funny). I won't go into too much detail as this will ruin the story! I will tell you I loved the story and the ending had me completely fooled. I did NOT see that coming!
The author, Patriicia K Batta totally captured my interest in this book. While I read the excerpt about the old women and murders, I couldn't quite imagine how it would all fit together. This book was so good, I read it all in one sitting! The narrator, Darla Middlebrook did a fabulous job capturing the aura of the characters! Like I said earlier, I was very impressed with her voice for Grandma the most! Kudos to you both for a job well done!
