E-Book ASIN: B00PSYBB3S
Granny may be retired as Fuchsia, Minnesota’s one-woman undercover sleuth for the Fuchsia Police Department, but that doesn’t mean she still doesn’t need a trusty weapon. Her weapon of choice? A pink snow shovel. When Granny runs over a dead body with her snowmobile, she unwittingly sets off a chain of events that involves mislabeled corpses, empty graves, and stolen money––lots of it! Who’s at the bottom of this years old crime? Granny has an idea, but she has little time to investigate, when in just days she’s scheduled to marry the love of her life, Franklin Gatsby, in a post-Christmas ceremony. So, Granny decides to enlist the help of her friends and neighbors. Add in Christmas holiday excitement and the arrival of Granny’s family, who are all there for her wedding, and mayhem ensues. Of course, Granny can always count on her many furry friends to provide her with moral support, but it’s quite possible that Granny––that is, Hermiony Vidalia Criony Fiddlestadt––has a secret or two of her own, which may very well be revealed as GRANNY SNOWS A SNEAK.

My review: Granny Snows A Sneak by Julie Seedorf
This is a hoot. Granny is at it again. This cozy mystery if full of twists, surprises, animals and weddings. I needed a laugh today. This is a clean read.
Granny is the main character. She is going to get married the day after Christmas to Franklin Gatsby.
She keeps secrets from everyone. She lies and goes her own way. She has dogs, cats & a goat. They roam between her house and Franklin's house.
There are lots of new characters in this third book. One is her new neighbor Silas. He is retired and has secrets of his own. Granny does not pull the wool over his eyes much. She is fighting with him and he with her.
A snow storm as snuck and Silas barges into Granny's basement to the secret door that is no longer secret to the underground street. It is open now with shops having doors open to it too. So Granny decides to go to town to. She comes back on a snowmobile with Silas on the back with her. and crashes in her yard and they find a dead body.
Franklin wants Granny to mind her own business and let her son the detective figure out what is going on.
I liked the story but did not like the ending. What did Granny see? I did not guess who the bad guys were and why they were doing all that they were doing?
I would like to visit Fuchsia, Minnesota in the summer time. It is a fun town with lots of crooks and crime and feisty seniors.
