Into the Wild

Read Bad Housekeeping (An Agnes and Effie Mystery #1) Online Free - When 28-year-old Agnes Blythe, the contented bifocals-wearing half of an academic power couple, is jilted by her professor boyfriend for the town Pilates instructor, her future is suddenly less than certain. So when her glamorous, eccentric Great Aunt Effie arrives in town and offers a job helping to salvage the condemned Stagecoach Inn, what does Agnes have to lose? But work at the inn has barely begun when the unlikely duo find the body of manipulative Kathleen Todd, with whom Agnes and Effie both have recently had words. Words strong enough to land them at the top of the suspect list.

The pair have clearly been framed, but no one else seems interested in finding the real murderer and Agnes and Effie's sleuthing expertise is not exactly slick. Nevertheless, they're soon investigating a suspect list with laundry dirtier than a middle school soccer team's and navigating threats, car chases, shotgun blasts, and awkward strolls down memory lane.

In Bad Housekeeping, the first novel in the Agnes & Effie cozy mystery series by Maia Chance, danger mounts, deadlines loom, ancient knob-and-tube wiring is explored, and the ladies learn a thing or two about the awful, wonderful mistake that is going back home.

BAD HOUSEKEEPING was an enjoyable read. I'm looking forward to the next title in this series to see how author Mia Chance fleshes out and grows her characters. Truly a good start to a new series. This was a rushed but heart felt review. I did like the book, and the writing of Mia Chance.

Nancy Drew and the Bobbsey twins had more maturity than Agnes and Effie combined. And they were certainly better sleuths!
