    4. Gloria has become a little bored, living alone in her old farmhouse after the death of her husband. When an unexpected murder happens in her little town, she gets her friends together to try and solve the murder. This is a Christian cozy mystery that I thoroughly enjoyed. Will definitely reading more by this author.

    5. A quick, fun storyThis series is great to read. Gloria is a great character and I'm enjoying meeting all her friends in the Garden Girls Club.

    6. Older women rock !!!I loved this story about Gloria and her friends , who worked to solve a mystery with the Lord's guidance.Gloria and her friends are seniors that have a social club and visit shut ins.The story was full of suspense, funny at times and gives good examples of how you can have fun after retirement.I hope to read more books by this author.

    7. Just ehhhThis book wasn't fantastic. The plot idea was a great one and I think with a little more polishing it could be a great book it's just not there yet.

    8. I love the idea of forming a club with friends. This is the first book in the series. It has some bible verses in it so if that offends you, you may not want to read this. But it really was entertaining. I can't picture my own mother snooping around like Gloria and her friends are. They find clues, a threat, and going to the police seemed like the right thing to do- but was it? I wonder about the barn- will we ever know? The killer is caught and new friends are made. Recipe included.

    9. I am glad that the setting was in Michigan, as I used to live there. The main character, Gloria, is sweet and likable. It was refreshing to read all the mentions of God, church, prayer, and biblical references. I would recommend this mystery to those that enjoy clean, Christian cozies

    10. More "cozy" than "mystery," but cute enough that I will probably try the next one in the series. I liked the Bible verses interspersed in the text. Gloria is spunky, and Detective Kennedy seems like a possible future love interest.

    11. I received a copy of, Who killed Mr. Malone , for free for a honest review. I found this book a easy read. It was refreshing to find a book that did not have bad language but also showed the author's heart for the Lord. Bless you. I can honestly recommend this book to all ages to read.

    12. Cute, quick readI liked this cute, little mystery. The Garden Girls are likeable & I could see myself in them in another 10 years. Already ordered the next one. Enjoyed this quick read.

    13. BlahSorry I was not impressed with this book at all. Ive got to read more carefully. I like stand alone books. This is not. Just more or less stopped on what could have been the best part of the book.

    14. Cute and lightI enjoyed this story. Like the characters and that it has a Christian theme. It didnt take me long to read it. Kept me interested. Will read more.

    15. This was a fun and easy series of books to read. The characters were well developed, the stories were cute, and there was a bit of romance and lots of humor mixed into these mysteries.

    16. Nice bookI am happy to see how this series started out. I have read others after this story. It has mystery, intrigue, and the start of a possible romance. I will try to read others in this series in order.

    17. Engaging, from beginning to end. Read in one sitting. I really like the MC and the supporting characters. Looking forward to spending more time with them.

    18. Oh so disappointed! The end came with no resolution to who put the threatening note in the door. Also, who was living in the barn. I know there is a "book 2" but the loose ends should have been tied up in the first book.

    19. This was the first of my 2016 August Serial books to read. I have read many of Hope Callaghan books over the past few weeks and I cannot seem to get enough of them. She is a wonderful author and does a great job with cozy mysteries!They are all Christian based and all the characters attend Church which is something I enjoy reading.In this series, we meet Gloria Rutherford who lives in Belhaven, Michigan, a small town where everyone knows everyone and knows what everyone is doing and they know wh [...]

    20. Who Murdered Mr. Malone? By Hope CallaghanAfter I finish a novel I sum it up with one or two words. Who Murdered Mr. Malone is a “Good read”. This novel by Hope Callaghan is Book 1 in the Garden Girls Cozy Mystery Series. This is the first I have read anything by this author and if her other books are as much fun to read I will read them all.I used to get annoyed when an author takes what seems to be a basic, run of the mill, character and makes him/her an amateur sleuth attempting to solve [...]

    21. Good, basic, cute cozyTypical premise for a cozy: cute/adorable/irascible elderly lady/grandmother/curmudgeon finds a body/body part/clue that leads to a larger mystery and involves her best friend/sidekick/group. Callaghan does an alright job creating time and place for Gloria to workaround this mystery.Her group of friends, for want of a better way to spend the hours in their days, creates a group that visits the homebound with flowers and baked goods. She gives each one a typical personality: [...]

    22. I really wanted to love itThere were a lot of great things about this book. The plot had a lot of potential, and the characters were people you wanted to get to know. Unfortunately, they weren't really developed enough to achieve that. Also, a lot of the story was hard to swallow. I liked it enough to keep reading, but overall was disappointed. Because Hope Callaghan has written several books in the Garden Girls Series, I assume that some of these critiques have been dealt with; that she has dev [...]

    23. Fast paced, well written.I enjoyed reading that first in this cozy series. There is plenty of action for Senior sleuth ladies in the investigation of a !murder in their small town. The ladies have formed themselves into a group to minister to shut ins by giving out fruits and vegetables from their own gardens. They also decide to join forces in collecting clues through town gossips to discover the killer.It was a very good book although somewhat too predictable. I enjoyed the fast pace. The char [...]

    24. It was an okayish story, but far too simplified. She just happens to find 2 essential pieces of evidence the cops missed at the crime scene on 2 different occasions?? They'd have gone back and searched again after she turned in the first one!! Unfortunately is has PoV issues as well. The pov shifts back and forth between various characters all the time and it's very annoying. Add to that a bad guy pov scene claiming a loose end and sounding very calculating. But the real murderer was sloppy, lea [...]
