Granny may be retired as Fuchsia, Minnesota’s one-woman undercover sleuth for the Fuchsia Police Department, but that doesn’t mean she still doesn’t need a trusty weapon. Her weapon of choice? A pink snow shovel. When Granny runs over a dead body with her snowmobile, she unwittingly sets off a chain of events that involves mislabeled corpses, empty graves, and stolen money––lots of it! Who’s at the bottom of this years old crime? Granny has an idea, but she has little time to investigate, when in just days she’s scheduled to marry the love of her life, Franklin Gatsby, in a post-Christmas ceremony. So, Granny decides to enlist the help of her friends and neighbors. Add in Christmas holiday excitement and the arrival of Granny’s family, who are all there for her wedding, and mayhem ensues. Of course, Granny can always count on her many furry friends to provide her with moral support, but it’s quite possible that Granny––that is, Hermiony Vidalia Criony Fiddlestadt––has a secret or two of her own, which may very well be revealed as GRANNY SNOWS A SNEAK.
My Review:
The hilarious Granny and her strange and eccentric friends, some humans other animals, are back: I could not wait. Now Julie Seedorf has become a guarantee of laughter and fun: the plot is intriguing and original, the characters are  hilarious and Granny can not stay away from trouble and comic and embarrassing situations.
In this book Granny meets many adversities: snow, a new neighbor, two marriages and a strange movements of corpses. 
Thor, her son, moves to Fuchsia, near her home and becomes the head of the local police. He prohibits Granny to continue working undercover for the town's merchants. Also because her latest survey has made her very popular, it would be difficult to investigate secretly. Plus her fake relationship with Franklin has become real and serious and  they'll get married in a few weeks, the day after Christmas. It will be a double wedding because with them will marry Thor with Heather, the daughter of Franklin. 
After a snowfall that could block her at home, she decides to buy a snowmobile and in her first trip  the new neighbor accompanies her (even if he had not been offered a ride). When they land ruinously in front of her house , she realizes that have invested a man but luckily he was already dead. It 's a corpse from the cemetery that is moved in front of her house. The corpse seems to be the father of her children. Those who have will put? And for what reason? Granny obviously can not  let that only her son and Franklin investigate, can not stand doing nothing ......
This town in Minnesota is enriched ever more bizarre and exhilarathing characters as Silas, Granny's new neighbor: according to Granny he is disreputable, crotchety, disagreeable skunk. Adorable is Angel, Heather's daughter  and future Granny's grandson: she is the only one capable of making the old lady tender and sweet. Granny is always more fun, shrewish but maybe in love.
It's the third book in the series "Fuchsia Minnesota Series", but can be read very well without the first two books: the author is very good at providing the essential elements for understanding the relationships between the characters and events that occurred in previous episodes without boring those who already know them.
I hope to return soon to Fuchsia in Minnesota.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review
