Ida Mae Babbitt has done her community service and is a reformed
woman - no more law-breaking for her. But when Arlette's granddaughter
Eden discovers a mystery in a fancy nursing home, Ida Mae - with the
perfect excuse of a broken wrist and a broken ankle - checks herself into
the place. After all, it is for the greater good. Soon she's buzzing
around in her motorized wheelchair, questioning the residents and swiping
files from the office. She's bound and determined to get to the bottom of
this case. But can she solve the mystery before she becomes the next

  1. Super blog tour plan.
    I guess Europe is excluded from taking part again?

  2. Sounds like a great blog tour planned, Elizabeth.

    Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Jennifer, she is a real DOLL. You'd love her! <3

  5. What a wonderful blog! Love it, fellow crusader.

  6. I didn't know you were crusading too! Awesome!! :D I've met so many wonderful people already!

  7. You've got a lot going on over here :) Nice blog. You must be super busy.

    I checked out your Mormon Mommy Writers site (shoot I forgot to join that. I'll pop back) but I too, am a Mormon Mommy Writer. Kinda fun to find you gals.

    Wow the things I find through blog fests and crusading.

  8. Fellow Crusader and new follower! This sounds like a fun book. Good luck with your giveaway!

    Chentele! It's fun, isn't it? Thanks for commenting! :D

    Angela, hi fellow MMW!!! I have to go and check out your blog! Thanks for visiting that one, too! <3

    Patricia, Thank you so much! :) Yes, it is, isn't it? Thanks for wishing me luck! :)

  10. Nahno, Europe is NOT excluded--yippee!! <3

  11. Wow, great. Well I will look into the reviews then and find out whether I'm interested in the book. The title is already intriguing.

    Thank you for reading my story by the way. I'm sorry about the confusion with prologue and epilogue, my mistake. Don't know how that happened. Sometimes you're so focused on detail, you forget the big things.

  12. I really like your review. I also read: and both reviews got me interested in this book.

    You say it's a page turner - I desperately need one of those. For my studies I'm doing extra-curricular work in form of reading Shakespeare on my own and maybe Chaucer next. Don't get me wrong, they are really interesting stories, but I need a page turner that gets me excited.

    Tristi's book seems to be that way. Even more so, it's something I have never read before. I like fantasy, sci-fi and lovestories, often thrillers, but I've not find many interesting investigative books that kept me going. Now this story is different. A home for elderly, a witty, funny investigator, I can just see it in my mind and have to start laughing. It must be a great read. And I want to read it.

    There is a series I've read. Amazing. If it is as good as you say, I'll have even more to read and my Mom is always interested in my advice for new books as well.

    I have twittered about the blog tour:
    And I am following Tristi'S blog (where I immediately found the Creative Penn which is awesome). And of course I'm now following the book review blog just mentioned.

    Sorry for the long post. Just had to express all of that. Is it enough to post this here?

  13. The more I read the reviews in this blog tour, the more I want to read Tristi's book. Thanks for the great review. Loved your blog, now I'm a follower.
