Rating: 3 Cups
Everyone loves a good party, and Abigail Timberlake is no exception, but this is one party like no other. She agrees to accompany her best friend to his aunt’s going away party, and that is very much in the literal sense.
Eccentric is one way of describing his Aunt Jerry, but Rob Goldberg knows that most would just say she is crazy. He always kind of liked her quirkiness, and the fact that she lovingly accepted his lifestyle and his partner, was more than he could say for his mother.
Charlotte is a beautiful city with lovely homes and wonderful people, but Abby can safely say that the people attending Aunt Jerry’s wake party fall considerably short of wonderful, excluding Rob of course. Aunt Jerry has always had a way of getting a rise out of someone, but this time she may have gone too far. Abby finds the outlandish granddame stuffed in a freezer, and once again is placed at the top of the suspect list. It is a good thing that her family and friends are never far behind, because this is one mystery that will have even the intrepid Abby thrown for a loop.
Itty bitty Abby and her cast of characters may have finally found their match for Southern colloquialisms. This bizarre crew of misfits will have you holding your sides and shaking your head as they play off of each other’s idiosyncrasies. At times however this can be overplayed in my opinion, and the objective gets lost in the craziness. Abby’s size and Southern affectations are a continuous source of humor, but her heart is as big as they come.
