Granny leads a secret life in the small, unique community of Fuschia, Minnesota. It’s not just her all junk food diet, multiplying pets, or her shocking bedtime attire that makes Granny one in a million. No, Granny is an undercover cop, charged by “the Big Guy” (the town’s police chief) of preventing theft in local stores. Granny takes her job seriously and daily foils many shoplifters using her trusty spiked umbrella and amazing acting skills. When some startlingly brazen burglaries begin to occur that Granny can’t solve, along with mysteriously appearing bad guys, disappearing clerks, and misplaced Corvettes, Granny begins to wonder if she isn’t ready for the wrinkle farm. Maybe, it’s fortuitous when she accidentally-on-purpose falls in the lap of an attractive older gentleman who is soon roped into her wild adventures, as they try to figure out what’s happening in their little town.
Julie Seedorf owns her own computer repair business, but her secret undercover job is writing. Her column “Something About Nothing” for a Minnesota newspaper is about nothing, which is what we talk about most of the time, always with something underneath the conversation. Julie has been a wife, mother, grandmother, housewife, barmaid, salesperson, activity director, full time volunteer and more. Her motto is, “If you dream it, you can do it.” Her Fuchsia Minnesota, published by Cozy Cat Press is her first journey in her undercover career. Having lived in small communities in Minnesota all her life, she knows the richness and uniqueness that only a small town can bring and with a little humor and imagination, she transforms those experiences into her imaginary Fuchsia community.

My Review: Granny Hooks A Crook
Fun mystery. Anyone reading this will end up smiling a lot. Granny has a lot of secrets she hides from her kids. She has a wild side. The characters are fun and I think thats a fun way to check on people living alone. (But I won't be doing any of those things.)
The suspense is well done. I figured out some of it but not all. It keeps your attention and sad to see the fun end.
Lots of Drama, action, laughter. It is also a clean fun cozy mystery.
Granny is not your average grandmother. She works for the cops. When she sees a person commit a crime she accidental stops them with her umbrella or gets in their way while she pushes a button so police chief will come and arrest them. Just a few people know what she is up too. She has three adult children that she is fooling. A cat named Fish who keeps bringing interesting gifts to her.
The animals in the story are fun characters. I like them.
The setting is Fuschia, Minnesota. A small town. That is having a crime wave. But Granny is working on stopping it.
I hope we will see more of Granny and Fuschia again.
The pacing in the story was good and kept me smiling and reading more.
I was given this ebook to read for reviewing and being part of Granny Hooks A Crook book tour.
