Review: Soup…Er…Myrtle! by Gayle Trent @gayletrent #Mystery
When reading the description for this book it reminded me I have not helped out at the soup kitchen lately. Then I did not go help out at Christmas so maybe I can get into help out this month. What really made me think is how easily it can be for someone to steal and use the identity of a deceased love one. I wonder how many times something similar has happened in the past and what if anything the government will do to stop something like this.
It almost broke my heart to read about the mother and her two children. Really knowing that I or someone I know or love is even in the same situation is heartbreaking. Then to know the father is nothing but a lay-about who is more concerned with making a quick buck than actually working. Really! People like this need to be thrown under the jail and the key melted down for scrap metal.
This was a fun fast read and not all that dark and murky. Each book in the series can be read in about an hour. Perfect for that train ride or while waiting on an appointment. The bunnies and I recommend this series to any who enjoy cozy mysteries.
The bunnies and I give this book carrots.

Bettie Easton thinks the M.E.L.O.N.S. (Mature, Elegant Ladies Open to Nice Suggestions) need to ingratiate themselves into Backwater society by helping out at the soup kitchen/food bank. Myrtle agrees, as long as the weather cooperates–it IS January after all, and who wants to be out in the cold and snow? But Myrtle’s heart quickly thaws when she sees the extent of the community’s need. When it becomes apparent that an identity thief is using the soup kitchen/food bank to mine for victims, Myrtle kicks her sleuthing into overdrive!
