Product description

Product Description

A cop, a pot-bellied pig, and an undertaker know something is a foot.

Sgt Betty Bruce is having a bad day…

Three bizarre deaths and a confession that isn’t a confession…

A severed foot in a sneaker that her pot-bellied pig won’t give up...

A body of a young woman dubbed The Painted Lady has just washed up on shore…

A young detective with an itchy trigger finger tasered her father’s cow and the locals want to lynch him…

Her dead boyfriend willed her his house … and she has been told to stay out of the way of Chief Inspector Tom Powder.

Chief Inspector Tom Powder’s day isn’t much better…

His partner has ruffled everyone’s feathers…

The cases are all stale…

He can’t find any evidence at the house of Betty’s beau, Andy McDowell, to discover what set the man off…and he is drawn into Betty’s other investigations for no other reason than respect for the sergeant herself.

The key to solving the cases hides within the pages of Tiffany Hyde-White’s strange novel, The Dastardly Mr. Deeds. In the end, it is up to Betty to unravel the mystery, no matter the cost.

If you love funny murder mysteries and are fans of Miss Marple, Murder She Wrote, and Twin Peaks, then The Gumboot & Gumshoe Series is for you. This book can be read as a standalone, but you might miss out on some of the fun so check out the discounted e-book copy of Gumboots, Gumshoes & Murder as well. Don't forget to read the Grand Finale in this trilogy, Murder Most Fowl.
