has just gotten her mother-in-law Lucille settled in Sunnyside
of Westfield Assisted Living Home. Lucille had a minor stroke
and brain surgery to remove a benign tumor. She will be fine
– but needs to stay and have rehab until she is able
to care for herself. Lucille has only been there five minutes,
but she already and hates her roommate Lyndella Wegner. Lyndella
is a ninety-eight- year-old crafter with many talents.
at the home, Anastasia meets her old college roommate Kara
there and takes her up on her offer to work in the craft room
on weekends until she is back from maternity leave. She can
really use the money, since her deceased husband left her
in bad financial shape.
of Sunnyside hear Lucille having a fight with Lyndella. When
Lyndella is found dead in her bed, Lucille is now the number
one suspect. While Anastasia doesn’t really care for
her mother- in- law, she knows that she is not behind the
murder. Will Anastasia be able to decode the many journals
that Lyndella kept and craft her own suspicions on the murderer?
to ponder: Who wrecked the craft room? Was Lyndella just an
expert crafter or was there more? Why did Shirley Hallstead
fire Reggie Koltzner the aide?
enjoyed reading Revenge of the Crafty Corpse –
it is not only a good mystery but a fun book with laugh out
loud parts. This was a real pager turner and does not disappoint.
I plan on reading the first two books in the series very soon.
