Book Review: Dearly Departed by Tristi Pinkston

Ida Mae Babbit 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?

Dearly Departed is the 2nd Secret Sisters Mystery by author Tristi Pinkston. I recommend reading the first book Secret Sisters before reading this one because there are several references to characters and events that took place in the first book. Although this book could be read as a stand alone you’d be missing out on all the fun antics from the first adventure.

Like the first book, Dearly Departed is a fun, lighthearted read. Quirky characters and lots of humor make for an entertaining story. This is the kind of book you can curl up with at bedtime and finish in one sitting.

I’m typically not a huge fan of “mysteries” but I’ve really enjoyed this series. The 3rd book comes out soon and I’m looking forward to curling up with another of Tristi’s “cozy” mysteries.
