Bookstore owner and mystery writer Samantha Washington comes to the aid of the cop who once arrested her own grandmother . . . 

Sam and Nana Jo are back in sleepy North Harbor, Michigan, where Sam is eagerly awaiting the publication of her first book. In search of more immediate excitement, Nana Jo hits the casino with her fellow Shady Acres Retirement Village gal pals—but they get more than they bargained for when they witness Detective Bradley Pitt decking mayoral candidate John Cloverton.

As Sam well knows, mystery novels are full of brilliant detectives, genius sleuths, and hero cops. Detective Bradley Pitt—aka “Stinky Pitt”—is another story. In the past, the dull-witted detective has mistakenly accused members of Sam’s family for crimes they didn’t commit. Now, it’s his turn: when Cloverton turns up dead, he’s arrested. With his predilection for polyester, Pitt has been wanted by the fashion police for years, but Nana Jo knows her former elementary school math student would never commit murder—it doesn’t add up. Somebody’s framed the flatfoot to take a fall, and Sam and Nana Jo must step in to restore the reputation and good name of Detective Pitt.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Welcome to another fun adventure with Sam and Nana Jo. Things are going well with the bookstore as well as the retirement community Nana lives in. The two go with a group to the casino to have fun for the evening but imagine their surprise when not only is Detective Pitt there but then he hits a mayoral candidate. That is bad enough but when the man turns up murdered it puts Pitt in the hot seat for a change. Sam may not be fond of him but she just cannot leave him hanging. This makes for an interesting investigation as she pokes around along with Nana and her gang. Add in the bonus second story written by Sam throughout the book to really make it good. A great choice for cozy fans. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
