    Description

    A cop, a pig, and a serial killer walk into a bar.  

    Seal Island is home to a moonshine making billionaire, a pot growing fisherman, a celebrity flower child, a handsome romance writer, a sex addicted realtor, a womanizing pub owner, a cop, a pot-bellied pig…and a serial killer.  

    The island is serene and remote. It is only accessible by boat. The residents like it that way, until those with the deepest and darkest of secrets start dying in the most bizarre of ways.  

    Upon discovering widow Eliza Bone floating bottoms-up in her Oscar fish tank, the one clue that the crime solving duo of Sergeant Betty Bruce and her pot-bellied pig, Gertrude, have is a set of muddy gumboot tracks left at the scene. Their problem: everyone on Seal Island wears gumboots. As two more people die and secrets begin to unravel, Betty and Gertrude soon find themselves in the cross-hairs of a serial killer.   

    In the end, only Gertrude may be left standing!   

    If you love funny murder mysteries, then Laura Hesse's Gumboot & Gumshoe Series is the perfect listen. Stay tuned for more adventures with Sgt Betty Bruce and Gertrude as they continue to solve crimes on the not-so-sleepy little Seal Island in The Dastardly Mr. Deeds.

    Utterly entertaining cozy mystery!

    I found this book to be quite fantastic! It’s a funny, cozy mystery set on an island where basically everyone knows one another. Everyone also knows Gertrude the pig and Peaches the cow. They were by far the most entertaining characters! The book moved at a swift pace and the characters were interesting. There were a lot of them though and at one point I did find myself having to think back to who was who. Other than that the book was a comical and quirky mystery that I really enjoyed. I definitely want to continue the series. I hope Gertrude and Peaches continue to make appearances in the books.
    The narrator really suited the story well. She brought the characters to life and added comedy to certain areas that may have seemed dull otherwise.

    I would like to thank the author/narrator/publisher for generously providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Kept me looking for more!

    I'm still wishing I knew who the.... Right, don't spoil it. You need to listen to this audiobook. The narrator is very engaging and constantly keeps you on your toes with the authors trail of what happens next. The storyline isn't predictable, which makes it even more curious! The characters are well developed too! Highly recommend!

    Kind of Juvenile

    Not sure if narration added to the overall sense the writer is as a high school author? Big picture story fair, but performance was like reading to children, poor inflections, timing.

    Horrible narrator

    The story is probably not that bad, unfortunately the narrator made it absolutely awful. The poor thing does not know what punctuation is for, therefore she ignores it completely. It was very difficult to listen to her monotonic voice reading without any emotions. I had to repeat every chapter for 2-3 times just to be able to follow the story line.

    Right in My Face The Whole Time

    Great mystery book. The ending left me hoping for book 2. I loved the relationship each character had with Betty. Can’t wait for book 2

    Gumboots

    This was an okay story.It seemed to pick up then drag for a bit.The same with narration by Carrie Burgess.I think there were too many characters to keep track of.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

    Delightful

    Fun and suspenseful. Nicely drawn characters — both animal and human! An enjoyable adventure. Beautifully narrated.

    a pleasant, cozy read

    This book delivers exactly what it says it will: an escape into a cozy and picturesque world where everyone has an amazing homestead and some sort of unusual pet. The mystery was not the most interesting (or the most sensical, but maybe the 2nd book will clear that up), but it's got that cozy feel, some quirky characters, and an environment you want to imagine yourself in. Listening to this wrapped up in a blanket with a hot drink in hand is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.

    A perfect afternoon listen!

    I certainly enjoyed this book! Interesting plot and characters. How can you go wrong with a female lead, a pig, a cow and murder! The animals had such human personalities it was hard not to love them. Overall, it was a perfect afternoon listen. Enjoy!
