Book 5 in the Fuchsia, Minnesota Mysteries
by Julie Seedorf

Granny is at it again! When Granny accompanies her friend Mavis to the Next To The Last Resting Place nursing home to visit Mavis’ sister, Beulah, both women are shocked to find the new resident dead. Granny, being the amateur detective she is, suspects foul play, and soon she and her entire family concoct a plan to investigate possible shady doings at the nursing home. Granny will enter the home incognito and attempt to determine how Beulah met her suspicious demise. All this happens while Granny’s new husband Silas is entangled in his own dangerous mess. Someone has just blown up his house and Silas (a former detective) is out to discover the culprit, even as he worries about Granny’s safety in the home. As more nursing home residents fall victim to a strange and sudden “memory loss virus,” Granny engages the aid of her friends to get to the bottom of what turns out to be a very complex and complicated plot.


Granny’s back and better than ever! Trust me when I say, if you haven’t read a book in this series, hold on to your socks. Granny is more than just a handful.   

There are a couple of things you can always count on when you read a Fuchsia, Minnesota Mystery. 1) You’re going to laugh until you cry. 2) You’re in for a great mystery.

In GRANNY PINS A PILFERER, author Julie Seedorf once again brings us Hermiony Vidalia Criony Fiddlestadt aka Granny. And boy, does she bring us Granny! Residents of The Next To The Last Resting Place are dying at an alarming rate! With this many folks passing on to their final resting place, it can’t all be from natural causes . . . can it? That’s what Granny sets out to discover, and discover it she does!

I had so much fun reading GRANNY PINS A PILFERER, I was still laughing at things hours after I read the last page! I have read many fun/funny mysteries, but only author Julie Seedorf can having me laughing even as I feel the tension mounting through the mystery of the story. Of course, all becomes clear by the end of the book, once again proving that Granny is a force to be reckoned with!

Well done Ms. Seedorf! You have me anxiously awaiting my next trip to Fuchsia!
