Two shocking discoveries – her dead husband’s secret novel and a body in Finny’s town square fountain nearly push Ruth to the edge of her sanity. The final kicker comes when her hairdresser goes on vacation to Fiji, leaving Ruth to look like Dickens’ Miss Havisham. A crazy kaleidoscope of characters such as the uptight gallery owner, Napoleon Prinn; half-baked Dimple Dent, writer of fortune-cookie wisdom; Alva Hernandez, octogenarian newspaper boy; and Monk, the amorous town caterer, add to the chaos in the shadow of Finny’s nose until Ruth finds herself in the ultimate do or die situation.
When I started Trouble up Finny’s Nose, I did not realize I would get a story within a story. Ruth will keep you trying to keep up with her all through the story as event after events develop. You go from finding a body in a fountain murdered, to an Art Gallery Owner murdered, and so many twists and turns it amazes you. There are things uncovered that people think are hid. When you get to end of story you are amazed to find out who done it. I enjoyed the story Ruth finds as well as the story details with mystery at every turn. A book you won’t be able to lay down. ~ squiresj (Amazon Review)
