My Thoughts - Story
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Jack’s story after reading “Murder, Mystery & Dating Mayhem” and I ate this book up like a grubby little kid.
If you read the first book, you know that Jack is Izzy’s gay BFF and a favorite of the grey haired knitters who just LOVE to get into trouble when solving mysteries.
Ms. Haggerty doesn’t disappoint with the humor and antics Jack, Izzy and the grey haired ladies get into while Jack tries to figure out who is stealing money from his store. Oh, and we can’t forget how these ladies just want to play cupid with Jack’s love life.
This is definitely a light-hearted read where you will find yourself chuckling over and over again.
You can read this book without the first in the series, but I recommend reading both in order to get the backstory of the secondary characters.
Jack is feeling the loneliness of losing Izzy to Noel and the random hook-ups just aren’t cutting it anymore for him. But after hiring a smoking hot bookkeeper for the business, Jack finds out that someone is stealing from the store for cross dressers and plus size ladies and the grey haired brigade is on that shit.
We follow Jack and the crew trying to figure out who the culprit is while driving Noel and the rest of the police department crazy with the trouble they wind up getting into.
Not only do the ladies unravel the mystery but they also help Jack find Mr. Right.
