Ida Mae has just finished a marathon of baking. She is expecting Tansy to arrive any minute. Ida Mae heads downstairs to retrieve something and loses her balance. That is exactly where Tansy finds Ida Mae when she arrives…at the bottom of the stairs. Now Ida Mae has a nice, new pink cast on her foot and the Relief Society by her side.
Eden West is a reporter for the Salt Lake Sentinel. Eden also writes the obituary articles. When Eden receives a request from Peggy to write her mother, Beverly Hilton Partridge’s obituary, it is just another day at the office. This is until Peggy reacts to something Eden writes about her mother. Eden stated that Beverly departed before her time. It seems that Beverly was a resident at Shady Aspens Retirement Center. Eden decides to do some investigating with Kevin, a fellow reporter at the Sentinel. What exactly is happening at Shady Aspens Retirement Center?
Dearly Departed is the second Secret Sisters Mystery and Ida Mae novel. Book one is Secret Sisters. This book can be read as a stand alone novel. This is the first book I have read by this author. I loved Ida Mae and the Relief Society. They are a hilarious bunch. Eden and Kevin reminded me of Nancy Drew and Ned. They made a good pairing. Kevin with his charms and Eden with her eye on the prize are a good duo. Dearly Departed is a quick read. Dearly Departed is what cozy mysteries are made of…fun, intrigue, and a few surprises along the way.
