RANDOM RETRO READ DAY!
DEEP FRIED TROUBLE
Widowed and officially retired, Eugeena Patterson throws herself into organizing the neighborhood association. This presents a great opportunity to re-connect with old friends and get to know new neighbors like recently widowed Amos Jones, that is until Eugeena stumbles upon her estranged neighbor's dead body. Eugeena's daughter is fingered as a prime suspect, but where is she?
Determined to find her missing daughter, Eugeena and Amos sort through a list of neighbors with shady or unknown backgrounds. The more she searches, the more Eugeena becomes unsure about this neighborhood association idea. Someone closer than Eugeena thinks, wants to keep it that way.

Short, snappy and so much fun! Eugeena is a hoot -- and I loved the way she continually calls on the Lord whether the appeal is heartfelt or exasperated. And when her Mama Bear acts up, it's best to get well out of the way (even if she might want to do some harm to the child in question herself!) Equal parts humour and heartwarming. Family drama gets equal billing with the murder mystery and I enjoyed both immensely. I'd like to be an honorary member of the Patterson family! As to the mystery...I thought I had it figured out, but I was wrong!!!!! So very, very, very wrong. I'd entertained several suspects seriously but perhaps Eugeena's sharp wit and pithy comments interfered with my armchair sleuthing spidey senses! At least, that's the story I'm sticking with!
I listened to the audible version of this book and absolutely LOVED it! Sharell Palmer brought Eugeena to life. Her narration really enhanced my 'reading' experience.
