I do enjoy this series. Set in a small town in Texas, so there's Southern charm and backhanded compliments and digs galore along with the mystery.
The narrator is J.R., almost 13 years old, enjoying the summer and getting used to finding dead bodies with his grandmother, Biggie. The two together gather clues along the way and help what passes as law enforcement in the town.

Super good fun and highly recommendable.
I am listening to the audiobooks in this series. They are short zany cozies but with a child narrator.
short, sweet, bought to pass on to sister
Fun book to listen to while keeping busy.
