In a sea of baking sleuths, magical cats, therapy dogs and women dumped by their dreadful spouses and moVing back to hometown comes HUBBERT AND LIL. Loved this series. I wish there were more. We're not in a small town with Amish buggies in it, we're in NYC, the Big Apple. I learned a lot about NYC and enjoyed the tour, peopled with quirky and memorable characters. Theodore S Hubbert--who has just retired from his job on Wall Street--and his Auntie Lil who at 84 should be slowing down but isn't-- ...more

The description of the people is priceless, and makes for a good beginning to this series. Theodore has just retired, and is called back when a partner has been murdered. Telling him to find the answers, they must protect the firm. He enlist his Aunt Lil to help, and she is a force to recon with, and determined . As for T.S. retirement may have been of a few hours, but he comes back with an attitude I thought, The casual dress, and being around his AuntLil I’m sure will change

This was my first experience reading cozy mysteries, and I found it to be enjoyable. There are four books in this compilation series, all revolving around T.S., the recently retired head of personnel at an old investment firm in NYC, and his feisty aunt, Auntie Lil.

Both have lived successful lives, with T.S. able to be a young retiree (early 50's), and Auntie Lil is a vigorous woman in her early 80's. They are both single, so money is no object, as evidence by their apartments, their eating hab

Enjoyable light-hearted comedies ...

Which are actually murder stories solved by 83-year old Aunt Lil and her recently retired very conservative nephew Theodore. Character development was extremely entertaining, as a rule. I loved the indominitable personality of Aunt Lil who certainly lives life to the full after rhe majority of her working years were spent in the fashion industry. Now in her old age she dresses flamboyantly, eats enormous meals with great enthusiasm, drinks copious amounts of s

What a great series

The stories just got bettet as I read. I absolutely loved the characters and the mysteries were top notch. I hope the suthor will be compelled to write a few more. These just whet my appetite. Very sophisticated for a series about an elderly lady detective working with her nephew, a New York monied sophisticate and a grown-up Asian kung-fu master. Missed sleep a few nights when I couldn't put it down. Hurray for Gallagher Grey!!

Fun reads

Fun reads, a little too long in the denouement at times, and constant referral to eyes as almond shaped and or green suggest Daniel Silva and his wife cowrote these ads its not his thriller style, but he uses the same plain words toi try to elicit, "Ahhhhs," from his readers who must think those are the epitome of perfect sexy eyes. It gets repetitious in both these books ans in his, and I haven't seen this in other books.

Great series

I love the main characters in these books; they are so entertaining and quirky. Being from the ages of mid fifties to eighties, they are not the usual leads you find in detective stories. The settings, the secondary characters, and mysteries are all enjoyable, too. There are very few editing errors to disturb the reader.

Enjoyable series

If you're interested in a pleasantly absorbing distraction Hubbert & Lil are the detectives for you. A strong minded, fearless old lady and her obsessive-compulsive nephew -- the pair of them find a d understand clues -- or sometimes just get lucky... but the criminals get caught. I wish there was another book in the series.

I am glad that I was able to read the entire 4 books at once.
I loved the mysteries, but I lived the sly humor even more.
The funeral scene was the funniest thing I've read all year!
Thank you

Delightful Detectives

Delightful tales of murder and mayhem. Includes all the opportunities to say "No...don't do that " and "You know better thrn to do that". Age is not a problem for Auntie Lil and nephew Theodore makes new horizons.

Awesome books!

Four books, each one as good or better than the last of exciting mysteries that T.S. Hubbert and his very outspoken Auntie Lil set out to solve. I enjoyed all 4 books immensely!

Unlikely detectives

I liked how the series developed off the previous story, but could easily stand alone if it wasn't read as part of a set. These two demonstrated that one can get far by "who you know", especially if you can't prove "what you know".

I Will Be Nosy Until The Day I Die

Auntie Lil drove her nephew T.S. nuts with her constant unwelcome assistance to the NYPD. Their oriental friend , Herbert, was the only one that could barely control her. Life was never simple for poor Theodore.

Classic page turners!

These stories are as good as any I have read on my kindle and better than most. If I had known how good they are I would have paid for them, but am happy to have gotten free.

4.5 actually

Four great mysteries in one set. I really enjoyed the main characters, and the secondary players were well defined as well. Really enjoyed this series and hope there will be more.

Delightful Series

This series is packed with quirky characters, mysteries, murders and a touch of romance. There is nonsense with enough seriousness to entertain the reader. Enjoy!

This was probably the best I have read of Cozy Mysteries, and there have been many. All four books were wonderful! Certainly will read more of this author.
