When a tree topples over onto Miss Lillian’s prized 1948 Tucker Torpedo, the grannies are once again scrambling for money and keeping Lil in the dark.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I loved this book. The grannies crack me up and remind me of some people I know. I love how each granny has a very distinct personality they are a diverse group yet some how they meld together really well. I still can not pick a favorite granny, I love them all for different reasons.
I love how resourceful Maggie is. That Granny can fix anything. And who knew how much of a gymnast/ dancer Sera would turn out to be? I love Abby Ruth's fire and spunk. I love that Lil is classy even in prison.
This book is the third in the series and had me turning the pages and trying to keep up with these busy grannies. In this book the Grannies have taken on two cases. One brought to them by Hollis and one they take on to prove to Colton that they did not sell the gift that he gave them. Lil has her own troubles in prison to deal with while the other Grannies are off to solve their cases. On top of all of that Sera, Maggie and Addy Ruth are trying to fix Lil's beloved car that was damaged during a storm. I will not go into detail since I hate spoilers, I will say that this book moves at a fast pace and is full of humor and is a well written mystery.
The characters are well developed and the scenes are always detailed enough to make you feel as if you are right there with the Grannies.
This book and the entire series is perfect for people who love a good mystery laced with humor with well developed characters and scenes. And trust me these Grannies will have you laughing and they will exhaust you, in a good way. Who knew Grannies could be so much fun while getting into so much trouble?
