If only Abigail Timberlake Washburns’ problems were as small as she, her life would be so much less complicated. But in relation to her size, they come in mammoth proportions.
Her mother, Mozella Wiggins, comes to Abby’s defense like any good southern mama, and like mother like daughter, she has a propensity for biting off more than she can chew.
Abby goes about her day like any other and heads to the seaport to pick up her mother’s birthday surprise, but unlike every other trip, this one ends up with her in the slammer. She is accused of ivory smuggling, and when her adorable hubby calls in the big guns, namely her irritating louse of an ex-husband, Abby is released and free to uncover the real culprit. Abby and her mama have taken on criminals before, but this time they cross the path of one very vindictive and underhanded foe.
If this one does not have you snorting with laughter, you may need to seek treatment for your ailment. The loquacious Abby and her equally effusive mother are a riot, and they may not be the best detectives you will ever come across, but they have spunk to spare. I enjoy reading a story that has you chuckling right from the start, and Poison Ivory fits the bill. Ms. Myers has fantastic wit, and her characters are as sweet as peach pie.
