Amber Dee's Missing Toe (Grandma Bertha Solving Murders Book 3) by Matt Ferraz

Amber Dee's Missing Toe (Grandma Bertha Solving Murders Book 3)
Buying a Christmas present for an old lady should be easy, but Winifred Compson wants to get something special for her best friend, Grandma Bertha. The moment she steps into the store and finds a dead body, Winifred realizes she has found the perfect gift: a holiday murder for Grandma Bertha to solve! Things get complicated when the friends find out that the deceased had a toe removed when she was a baby, indicating a much older crime that must also be solved. Can Grandma Bertha crack the case before it ruins her Christmas celebrations?  (Summary via Goodreads)

During the holidays life can get hectic, however, we all have to remember to take time for ourselves and sometimes that "time for ourselves" is getting lost in a cozy mystery.  Matt Ferraz has exactly what you need !!!  Amber Dee's Missing Toe is the latest in his Grandma Bertha Solving Murders Mystery series and it can be read in one sitting. ( I know because I did !!!)  

There's nothing better than hanging with Grandma Bertha and in Amber Dee's Missing Toe, Grandma Bertha has moved out of the shed in her son's backyard and is living in an apartment with Winifred.  Winifred is a dear friend she met when she helped solve a murder involving Winifred.  They became fast friends and now feel like family.  

When Winifred is out shopping trying to find the perfect Christmas gift for Grandma Bertha, she thinks to herself that the perfect gift for her would be a murder to solve and then she walks into a store to find the sales clerk dead !!!  And if that isn't the best gift ever, the constable, Inspector Shaw, asks Grandma Bertha to help with the investigation !!!

Not only is this the perfect Christmas gift for Grandma Bertha, it also gives her purpose and a goal to have the case cleared up before the holiday !!!  Unfortunately the killer has other things in mind when the case puts Winifred in a bad situation......

Amber Dee's Missing Toe is the perfect break from shopping and wrapping those Christmas presents.  I recommend grabbing your copy and curling up with a cup of hot chocolate, some cookies and sitting in the living room with the Christmas tree on and let Grandma Bertha take you away from it all for a while....
