Description

There isn't much crime in Lilyvale, Arkansas, but local authorities have their hands full with Ms. Sherry Mae Stanton Cutler and her housemates — a crafty group of retirees who've dubbed themselves the Silver Six. But when Sherry Mae's niece, Nixy, arrives to keep them in line, Lilyvale also plays host to a killer.

When Leslee Stanton "Nixy" Nix gets the latest call from Lilyvale detective Eric Shoar, she knows it means trouble. There's been another kitchen explosion at her Aunt Sherry's farmhouse, and the dreamy-voiced detective has had enough. If Nixy doesn't check on her aunt in person, the Silver Six could become wards of the court. But the trouble Nixy finds in Lilyvale is not at all what she expects.

The seniors are hosting a folk art festival at the farmhouse, featuring Sherry's hand-woven baskets, when land developer Jill Elsman arrives to bully Nixy's aunt into selling the property. When Jill is later found dead in the cemetery, Sherry is suspected of weaving a murder plot, and it's up to Nixy and the Silver Six to untangle the truth.

    BASKET CASE is one of the cutest, most refreshing new cozy mysteries of the year! Author Nancy Haddock has created an extraordinarily, fun cast of characters. The “Silver Six” are such a handful, but there isn’t one of them I wouldn’t want for an aunt. This first book in the Silver Six Crafting Mystery series is packed with fun, mystery, and just plain good story telling. I was captivated from beginning to end, sad when the book was done. Ms. Haddock lets readers get a very good way into the story before she brings in the discovery of the murder victim. I’m so glad she waited. It really helped me to get to know and enjoy the core characters before they launched into investigation mode. Excellent writing and a wonderfully plotted mystery make BASKET CASE one of the “must read” new mysteries of 2015. Don’t miss out on this one! Nancy Haddock is sure to be an ongoing name in cozy mysteries. Crafting tips, recipes, and an excerpt of book 2, GOODBYE GOURDEOUS, can all be found at the back of the book!

    When Leslee Stanton “Nixy” Nix gets a call from a concerned cop in her beloved Aunt Sherry’s hometown of Lilyvale, she arranges for time off and heads from Houston to Arkansas. It seems detective Eric Shoar is worried that about Sheree and her elderly housemates, the self-proclaimed Silver Six,” may be a danger to themselves -- what with the explosions and fires that seem to be regular occurrences. When Nixy arrives in Lilyvale, she learns that her aunt is being hounded real-estate developer Jill Elsman, who wants to buy her large property. Ms. Elsman is a nasty bully. When she winds up murdered, Sherry is on the list of people the victim had confrontations with – and, therefore, a suspect. She is not alone. Nixy doesn’t want to leave town until things are resolved, so she feels compelled to do a little investigating of her own. And she gets six volunteers who want to help. This is a lovely start to a new cozy series – and I knew from page one that I would enjoy it. It had an immediate cozy “feel." This is a series that relies on great characters and cozy setting for its success. I can’t wait to read #2, which I ordered immediately after finishing #1.
