In a sea of baking sleuths, magical cats, therapy dogs and women dumped by their dreadful spouses and moVing back to hometown comes HUBBERT AND LIL. Loved this series. I wish there were more. We’re not in a small town with Amish buggies in it, we’re in NYC, the Big Apple. I learned a lot about NYC and enjoyed the tour, peopled with quirky and memorable characters. Theodore S Hubbert–who has just retired from his job on Wall Street–and his Auntie Lil who at 84 should be slowing down but isn’t–are a force to be “feared” if you’re a murderer..
Each mystery progresses our knowledge of this unlikely couple. And we pick up new characters too like the rich Lila Cheswick and Herbert Wong. The only fly in my ointment was that I skimmed some pages with graphic details that I didn’t want to picture in my mind–I have along memory. But each story rang true and I devoured these UNUSUAL, WITTY, AND CAPTIVATING mysteries. I just wish there were more than four! I looked at the other books by this author under other names and was warned by the reviewers of the foul language. Sigh… To each his own I guess. But I may re-read this collection. You may enjoy it!
