Lorena McCourtney and what a lovely surprise it was. It's part of the Ivy Malone Mystery series. Lorena McCourtney has chosen an LOL (little old lady) as her main character and Ivy Malone is a feisty, God loving woman. Although the novels are shown as a Christian mystery series, I found that Ms. McCourtney didn't bombard the reader with scripture and "biblical lessons" but rather showed how God and the bible were a part of Ivy Malone's life. There were many laugh out loud moments in the book.
From the cover:
Meet Ivy Malone, an inconspicuous older woman who has a mutant curiosity gene that often lands her in trouble. Unlike most women her age, she snoops and pries her gray-haired self into one hilarious escapade after another. So when vandals romp through the local cemetery, Ivy can't help but put her snooping eyes to work as she launches her own unofficial investigation.
