Things were going missing at the Middle School, so Myrtle Crumb went undercover in the lunchroom to get to the bottom of it. Then someone tried to frame her granddaughter for stealing a bracelet. But Myrtle already suspected who the real culprit was and all she needed was the proof.

I’m talking about WHEN GOOD BRAS GO BAD, by Gayle Trent, the latest installment in the Myrtle Crumb series. What a hoot! I absolutely fell in love with the delightful characters. Colombo’s got nothing on Myrtle Crumb, who is like a cross between “Granny of the Beverley Hillbillies” and “Matlock”.

At only 96 pages, it’s the perfect size to enjoy while on a trip to the doctor’s office. But be prepared to share, because everyone will want to know why you’re laughing.

Read a segment from the book

Purchase the book at Amazon.com

BETWEEN A CLUTCH and a HARD PLACE, was the first of the Myrtle Crumb series, which was a 2004 Appalachian book of the year nominee.

I was first introduced to Myrtle through a free, downloadable short-story called PARTY LINE. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with Myrtle, her dog Matlock and even her neighbor and arch nemesis, Tansie Miller.

I give both books an enthusiastic two thumbs up!

Gayle Trent has also authored several other books and is presently the editor of Grace Abraham Publishing, and also writes a free monthly Ezine.

Cool. Sounds like a fun read. Love the title and the characters sound wonderful. So, where's my copy?

They are both great books!

You should download the free ebook and have a taste of Myrtle Crumb.

A free ebook? I think I shall do that. I haven't read a good comedy in a long time. Thanks for sharing this.

These books look like a lot of fun, hopefully we can work something out for the CFBA for next year!

I hope we can. This author deserves more recognition. The next sequel sounds even better.
