Honey, these are not your momma's grannies....
When Lillian Summer Fairview's husband up and dies on her, it leaves the last living member of the most prestigious family in Summer Shoals, Georgia, in a hot mess. While Lil was busy being a proper Southern lady, Harlan squandered dang near the whole family fortune on lottery tickets. To keep her financial skeletons in the closet and give him a decent burial, Lil made a deal that has now landed her in prison.
Desperate to keep her troubles a secret and the family estate from falling down while she pays her debt to society, Lil entrusts Summer Haven's care to her best friend, Maggie, who recruits two more over-50 ladies to live at Summer Haven and help keep it afloat.
But when Maggie discovers that Lil's restitution is 10 times the amount she "borrowed" from the federal government, she's convinced Lil has taken the fall for someone else's crime. And these gals will use every trick in their little-old-lady bags to prove it.

A cozy little mystery ...
I really enjoyed In for a Penny. I would recommend this book because it was a solid mystery, well thought out and the characters felt true.
Sara was my favorite character. She was 'out there' yet very resourceful at the same time. She brought something new to Summer Shoals and I think they really needed that.
This is the first book of Ms. Dougherty's that I have listened to. I felt that she brought each character to life. She kept me engaged in the story and I wanted to keep listening. I would love to listen to another 'Granny Series' mystery performed by Ms. Dougherty.
This is a very solid cozy mystery. I would recommend this book to any of my friends who want a good, fun mystery. This is a book that many people would enjoy. It is good clean fun!

A witty surprise!
I loved listening to what the ladies were up to. Sara, Maggie, Lillian, & later in the story Abby. Sara (Serendipity) is a great character. All the different voices performed by the narrator was just awesome! A narrator only makes a story that much more enjoyable!
I liked Sara the best. OMG that girl is strange, yet funny & smart. A girl who can think on her feet at a moments notice!
Again, my fave character is Sara! Though I did like how Maggie thinks!
Yes, but since it was late at night when I started it, I had to continue it into today!
What a great book! It was much more than I expected it to be. Drama, mystery, witty, charming. The ladies all rocked. I can see where they would be a handful of trouble too! The part where Sara had fallen thru the floor while on the toilet made me laugh so hard!!!I also loved how these women figured out what really happened all to save their friend! That's what I call a friend having your back!From the very beginning of the story, The authors had my interest. As the story went on I found myself glued to the computer listening to the story. I am really impressed with this book! All in all, this book was FUN!Pam Doughtery the narrator did a fantastic job capturing the voices of these slick southern belles! Good job.
