Publisher's Summary

At the ripe age of 73, Imogene Deal McGregor has a penchant for following her own instincts, as well as more grit and spunk than her hypochondriac son, Billy McGregor, and Billy's impulsive partner Jackson can handle. The boys take Imogene to New Orleans with their devilishly handsome English bulldog Goose, hoping to visit friends and attend a second line parade, but moments after arriving in the French Quarter, they find their friend Glenway Gilbert murdered in his art gallery. Immediately, Imogene and the boys run into a temperamental and ethically-challenged lieutenant who appears hell-bent on neglecting the crime, compelling them to seek answers themselves. As they delve into Glenway Gilbert's murder, Imogene and the boys realize the deceased artist was surrounded by suspicious friends and lovers. With Goose the bulldog by their side, Jackson and Billy seek answers among old friends and new enemies, while Imogene follows her own ideas on the case. But the sooner they solve the murder, the sooner they can get back to catching beads and eating pralines.

Mayhem and madness

Well written fun story with a boatload of quirky characters who quickly become real to the reader. The characters truly make the book both interesting and memorable. Nothing wrong with the plot, I just focused more on the characters.
It also felt like a nice visit back to NOLA because of the clear descriptions of the area.
I was fortunate to be able to listen/read, and I feel that Lee Ann Howlett did a fine job as narrator. Some might quibble about her minimal southern accent, but I feel that it is an blessing for those of us whose ears cannot entangle a deep drawl unless facing the speaker.
I was gifted with this book at my request in exchange for an honest review via AudioBookBOOM.

So many characters, but enjoyable!

There are a LOT of characters introduced almost right off the bat & most scenes in the first 4 chapters had 5-7 characters in it at once, which was confusing and hard to keep up with. It was tough to discern who was talking when Alan, Neil, Glenway, Jackson, Billy, Goose, Imogene & Lt. Rodgers were all in one scene & I wasn't yet familiar with who was who. These were brand new characters to me, so that made it a bumpy start. However, once I understood the dynamics it became a little easier.

Imogene is a sassy & spunky senior and she's easily the best character of all! I could feel her personality through the wonderful narration & her dry humor was the best. The cast of characters are fun and all well narrated. The story & mystery is interesting, and the ending was satisfying. This has all the bones of a good cozy, but I still think it tries to juggle a few too many characters. This book was gifted to me in exchange of my honest review.
