Murder Passes the Buck by Deb Baker

Review by Dawn Dowdle 

Gertie Johnson doesn't think her son Blaze, the sheriff of their backwoods community in the upper peninsula of Michigan, is fully investigating the death of her neighbor Chester Lampi.  He was shot in his hunting blind on opening day of deer hunting season.   

Blaze does things by the book, but Gertie is afraid he's dropping the ball on this one.  He has ruled it as an accident.  Gertie is sure that it wasn't an accident.  So she sets out to investigate on her own.  Since she can't drive, she gets her grandson, Little Donny, to drive her around.  Her best friend Cora Mae assists her, and Kitty wants to be her bodyguard.   

Gertie and her friends have many wild adventures along the way.  In the meantime, Blaze files to become Gertie's legal guardian.  She tries not to let this keep her from her investigation.  But can she keep herself and her friends safe while on the trail of a killer?  Is the killer someone they know and trust? 

I really enjoyed this book.  Gertie is such a fun character.  Her friends are a hoot as well.  I found myself laughing out loud.  The predicaments they got themselves into!  I look forward to reading the next book!  Plus this author has another series starting that I am anxious to try. 

I highly recommend this book!
