    One thought on “Trouble Up Finny's Nose”

    1. This is the first book in the Finny’s Nose cozy mystery series. I was pleasantly surprised by this story. Ruth is a widow, still stuck in the grief of her husband’s death. A series of shocking events in her life and in the small community of Finny’s Nose finally lift Ruth out of her emotional and spiritual quagmire. This was a really funny novel, filled with quirky characters and humorous situations. It may not appeal to everyone’s sense of humor but I loved it. I enjoyed the mystery asp [...]

    2. Mysterious, thrilling, adventure. I loved following this story. I loved walking with Ruth Budge throughout this whole story. One event led to other adventures. Just being a busy body brought Ruth to put her own life at risk but she didn't give up. She was also dealing with grief over losing her husband. Dana has a way to draw you into the book like you are living the experience and you just cannot quit looking for those clues yourself. It will amaze you who done it.Dana covered life in a rural a [...]

    3. The opening chapter or two of this book are entertaining and funny. A body is found upside down in a fountain in the town square. Some of the characters have rather odd names (ie. Dimple). A fire in a greenhouse. Another murder. At least three people have a motive for murdering at least one of the victims. We wonder if the two deaths are connected. A fight between two women, at a funeral no less. An eighty something year old man casually pulls up a chair to watch the action. Good. Surprised by t [...]

    4. another great one! i just LOVED the main characters!! this is SO much more like real life in a smaller town!!!and, unfortunately (?), i could also REALLY relate to the main character more than i'd have anticipatedi WILL be looking for more books and novels by THIS author. in fact, i'm headed to my library's website right now!quick, easy, lite summer read, w/ LOTS of laughs, too, despite the murders!

    5. I was gifted this audiobook with the understanding that I would give an unbiased review. I had a really hard time keeping everyone straight. There is a lot of side characters and none of them kept my interest. There are two more books in this series and I will try them in hopes of getting into this story line.

    6. Oh my, what a super story. I felt bad for Ruth in her struggles to come to terms with her widowhood. Her handling of the murder in her town begins to open her eyes to moving on with her grieving. The ups and downs of life in Finny's Nose make a fun and enjoyable read. Will Ruth be able to solve the murder? Read and find out. Highly recommend.

    7. I would have rated this book more highly except for the fact that it was so hard to "get into" it, and sort out the characters. It seemed to take forever to actually get into the story and explore the mystery. It is a good Christian mystery, with a little bit of romance thrown in also.

    8. I enjoyed this mystery well enough, yet there were some problems. Too many loose ends and too many indistinguishable characters. I plan to read the next one and hope things resolve.
