Geared for the Grave

To boost her chances for a promotion, Evie Bloomfield helps her boss’ dad with his cycle shop. The good idea turns bad when dad winds up prime suspect in a murder. To save her job Evie takes over the failing shop though she’s never ridden a bike, finding a killer though she can’t find her keys in her purse and discovering why someone is out to frame Dad. Can Chicago Evie survive life on Mackinac Island without her Honda, being on an eight-mile chunk of land with horses, carriages, bikes, fudge-eating tourists, the resident sage writing her eulogy and a killer who wants her dead?


My Thoughts: 

This book follows Evie who has recently moved to Mackinac Island to help her boss's father who has a broken leg.  When she gets their she finds the the bike shop in desperate need of fixing up.  Little does she know she will be using her sleuthing skills to save Rudy before he looses his shop forever when he is accused of murder.

I loved this book.  Everything about it  was incredible the characters you meet everyone from Irma the local cops mother to Irish Donna.  I found myself cracking up over some of things going on in this town like brownies with a great kick to them, to the secrets the residents hide.  I can't wait to see where Duffy goes next in her books.  If you haven't read this book you really need too.  She delivers the right amount of mystery, humor and adventure!
