When 28-year-old Agnes Blythe, the contented bifocals-wearing half of an academic power couple, is jilted by her professor boyfriend for the town Pilates instructor, her future is suddenly less than certain. So when her glamorous, eccentric Great Aunt Effie arrives in town and offers a job helping to salvage the condemned Stagecoach Inn, what does Agnes have to lose? But work at the inn has barely begun when the unlikely duo find the body of manipulative Kathleen Todd, with whom Agnes and Effie both have recently had words. Words strong enough to land them at the top of the suspect list. The pair have clearly been framed, but no one else seems interested in finding the real murderer and Agnes and Effie's sleuthing expertise is not exactly slick. Nevertheless, they're soon investigating a suspect list with laundry dirtier than a middle school soccer team's and navigating threats, car chases, shotgun blasts, and awkward strolls down memory lane. In Bad Housekeeping, the first novel in the Agnes & Effie cozy mystery series by Maia Chance, danger mounts, deadlines loom, ancient knob-and-tube wiring is explored, and the ladies learn a thing or two about the awful, wonderful mistake that is going back home.

I'm home sick with a cold today. I'm going to try finishing this book. I usually don't feel like reading much when I'm sick, which is disappointing when I have a whole day to lay in bed and do nothing else.

What? You can't just go to a pharmacy and buy contacts! This sort of thing in books drives me crazy, but I should lighten up because it a fun book 😀

CocoReads That would make me crazy too. I can overlook a lot of things but that may not be one of them! 3y
SaraRosett Maybe she meant they were out of the type of contacts that they would use to fill her prescription .... ? 3y
Amie @SaraRosett contacts aren't purchased at a pharmacy... Your eye doctor orders them for you or you order them from a service that sells contacts 😃 3y
SaraRosett @amie I get it! I don't wear them--obviously. :) 3y
