It should be a rule that you must not die on your birthday, but sometimes life doesn't follow the rules, especially in a small town. Mrs. Nettie Pidgeon has a talent for being on top of all of the hot gossip in town, mostly because she's a writer for the society page of a local paper. When her piece on a local businessman's upcoming birthday party hits her radar, she thinks it will be simply more gossip for the town. The gossip takes a dark turn when he's found dead in his study just minutes after cutting the birthday cake. Who did it? Mrs. Pidgeon has her hands full as she discovers that everybody had a motive for wanting him dead in Murder in Nettleton Top by Anna Mara.
I enjoy mystery novels, and the small town settings are some of the best. Anna Mara does a wonderful job of creating a compelling and lovable cast of characters to solve the mystery. These ladies aren't your average senior citizens, and give me one more reason to look forward to retirement! It's lighthearted and fun, while also being a satisfying story full of suspense and intrigue. I especially like how Mrs. Pidgeon works with her granddaughter and the police to solve the mystery and set the story straight. I couldn't put this book down. It's a great, fun, well-told story. If you love a plot with twists and turns, then this is perfect for you. I highly recommend Murder in Nettleton Top!
