Frugal Lissa Finds a Body

Series: Frugal Lissa Mysteries

Melissa “Lissa” Eller looked for ways to save people money. She never wanted to find a dead body…
Especially since she and the victim argued in public the previous evening. And she kind of threatened him (all a big misunderstanding – really).

When would she learn to keep her big mouth shut?

Now, she’s suspect number one in the guy’s murder. Worse, the detective in charge of the case is someone Lissa made fun of in high school—because he made fun of her—and he holds more leverage than just the threat of getting her sent to detention. Her boys don’t need a mom in prison!

She should never have moved back home.

Who said small towns were safer?

I loved Lissa’s attitude and mouth. Her snark made me laugh. And the kids, OMG, two little boys who are hilarious and smart and always trying to get away with anything they can. Honey the dog? She is a goof but the best-est protection and alarm system a family could have. Lissa has it well in hand, even if she does tend to run off at the mouth sometimes, especially with the police detective that she has known since they were both young and in school. Lots going on, fun read, great family (even the absent but working father, Dek), and a mystery. I read it in one sitting because I needed to know what was going on and how it would end. And the ending is priceless!

The very definition of a cozy mystery. Loved it! Loved the plot! Loved the characters! Ready for more! ...Ritter Ames has done it again. She creates mysteries that are exciting, but reading them is like spending time with friends.

I was entertained from the very first page to the very end. I highly recommend this book and new series!
-- Michele Wicker, Cozy Mystery Corner
This was a fun mystery to read. I like the premise and I like the characters, especially Lissa, her BFF Abby and her two sons. What a joy to see their interaction, this will searching for the person who had a stronger motive to kill him and watching the play-by-play actions as things come down to the wire. I can't wait to read the next book. I love this family.
