Follow the Dotted Line by Nancy Hersage


JANET EVANOVICH WOULD HAVE WRITTEN THIS BOOK—if only Stephanie Plum had been a Baby Boomer nearing retirement, the mother of four opinionated adult children and had an ex husband whose ashes showed up in a burger box via US mail. She’d still be outrageously funny and utterly original, of course, but she’d be named Andrea Bravos and her debut mystery would be written by Nancy Hersage and called FOLLOW THE DOTTED LINE.

FINALLY—A COMING OF AGE STORY FOR BABY BOOMERS! A crackin’ good mystery and proof that the only thing harder than growing up is growing old. For Boomers and the GenXers who love them. Think Stephanie Plum on Medicare!

Book Description:

Andrea Bravos is dazed and amazed when a Styrofoam burger box with her ex’s ashes arrives in the mail. Her adventure to find out what happened will upset officials of several small countries, insult the founders of three major religions, give her four adult children acid reflux, and lead her to assault with a deadly golf club.

In the process, she will joyfully drag along her soft-spoken but fearsome accountant, while trying to fend off her mooch of a nephew. It’s a convoluted and quixotic caper, but it all comes together in the end—even the avocados, World War II spy, IRS agent, palm reader, and deadly spider.

Move over Marple and Plum, here comes Andy!

FIVE STARS “I’m picky about books, because I’m picky about my time, as a busy Gen X-er raising a family in a chaotic time and place. So when I find a well-written book that combines page-turning mystery intrigue, humor, as well as insight into our social/human condition, I know my time is well spent.
