Veenie Goens and Ruby Jane Waskom would like to retire, but they lack a nest egg. In fact, they barely have a nest. They co-own a ramshackle, but cozy home, that’s overrun with quirky characters. Determined to supplement their social security, the amateur aging women sleuths, who live in the small town of Knobby Waters, Indiana, decide to go pro with their one natural talent: nosiness. They sign on as detectives with the Shady Hoosier Detective Agency, run by Harry Shades, an incompetent womanizer. Their knees aching, but their spirits high, the senior sleuths’ first crime case, the Ghost Busting Mystery, finds the lifelong friends chasing ghosts, bank robbers and hillbilly hoodlums through the barnyards of rural Indiana. Follow Ruby Jane and Veenie’s antics in the Ghost Busting Mystery, an award-winning feel-good, funny mystery voted the Best Humor Book 2019 by the Indie Reader. This is Book 1 in the humorous Shady Hoosier Detective Agency Cozy Mystery Series.
