Publisher's Summary

A cop, a pot-bellied pig, and an undertaker know something is a foot.

Sgt. Betty Bruce is having a bad day. 

Three bizarre deaths and a confession that isn’t a confession…

A severed foot in a sneaker that her pot-bellied pig won’t give up...

A body of a young woman dubbed the Painted Lady has just washed up on shore…

A young detective with an itchy trigger finger tasered her father’s cow and the locals want to lynch him. 

Her dead boyfriend willed her his house…and she has been told to stay out of the way of Chief Inspector Tom Powder.

Chief Inspector Tom Powder’s day isn’t much better.

His partner has ruffled everyone’s feathers…

The cases are all stale…

He can’t find any evidence at the house of Betty’s beau, Andy McDowell, to discover what set the man off…and he is drawn into Betty’s other investigations for no other reason than respect for the sergeant herself.

The key to solving the cases hides within the pages of Tiffany Hyde-White’s strange novel, The Dastardly Mr. Deeds. In the end, it is up to Betty to unravel the mystery, no matter the cost.

If you love funny murder mysteries and are fans of Miss Marple, Murder She Wrote, and Twin Peaks, then The Gumboot & Gumshoe Series is for you. This book can be listened to as a stand-alone, but you might miss out on some of the fun, so check out Gumboots, Gumshoes & Murder as well. Don't forget to listen to the grand finale in this trilogy, Murder Most Fowl..

Great Series

I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review. The story was interesting and entertaining. I look forward to the next book to get the answers to the rest of the mysteries. A pig and a cow go down to the pub for a beer what's not to love.

Cliff hanger

Wow what a cliff hanger. Lots of twists and turns in this book. But once again the author nailed it. Wonderful story line. Can’t wait for the next book of this who done it.
I received this free from the author or narrator for an honest review.

This series has really captured my interest. With each book I feel more drawn in and can't wait for the next one. The ending of this one is so ominous that I have more questions than answers. This author knows how to hold an audience captive- willingly!!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.
