Grandma Bertha Solving Murders
This is a cozy mystery series I created inspired by my two grandmothers, an elderly friend who loves Horror films, and the Miss Marple movies starring Margareth Rutherford. The second volume of the series is currently on its first draft.
The Convenient Cadaver
When Grandma Bertha moved to her son’s place, she brought along her three dogs, several cases of beer and many, many Horror film DVDs. While her daughter-in-law insists on the idea of sending Grandma Bertha to a retirement home, a dead girl with three bullets on her back appears near the house. Once in her youth, Grandma Bertha let a murderer escape for not trusting in her own detective abilities. Now, armed with her wit and wisdom, she decides to solve that crime before the police. Could this crazy dog lady be a threat to a cold-blooded killer? And for how long can the family stand that situation?
