Dearly Departed by Tristi Pinkston
Title: Dearly Departed (Secret Sisters Mystery #2)
Author: Tristi Pinkston
Genre: LDS Fiction/Mystery
Premise: "Ida Mae Babbitt has done her community service and is a reformed woman—no more law-breaking for her. But when Arlette’s granddaughter Eden discovers a mystery in a fancy nursing home, Ida Mae—with the perfect excuse of a broken wrist and a broken ankle—checks herself into the place. After all, it is for the greater good. Soon she’s buzzing around in her motorized wheelchair, questioning the residents and swiping files from the office. She’s bound and determined to get to the bottom of this case. But can she solve the mystery before she becomes the next victim?" (GoodReads.com)
Opinions: Earlier this week I posted the review for the first book in the Secret Sisters series by Tristi Pinkston. I have to say that even though I loved the first book, I think the sequel is sensational. Just my non-professional opinion. If you're a lover of fun mysteries then this book will be right up your alley.
The humor carries through in this book just like the first one, which is a must. Plus, we get to see such fantastic characters excel to new heights. I adore Ida Mae and loved delving into her psyche even deeper and in such a tough physical situation for her. I also was excited to get to see more of Eden. She is my favorite character in this book. I love her internal battles, her spunk, and her willingness to dunk crispy bean burritos in ranch (rock on girlfriend - I thought I was the only one). I loved seeing the same crazy antics from some really awesome women placed in a new and exciting situation as they search into a possible murder. I can't wait to read more....so um, Tristi (if you're reading this)...when is the next installment coming out?
