    1. In Gary Dobbs' latest book, we have a cozy mystery with the elderly lady and amateur detective known as Granny Smith. Though Smith is her married name and she is indeed a grandmother, she's had the nickname a lot longer. It comes for her love of the same titled apple.Granny follows in that long tradition of amateur detectives and is even referred to by a cop a couple of times in the book as Miss Maple on steroids. Though an older woman, she is as different from the Christie character as one coul [...]


    2. Check out the complete review at WordPress ReviewsIt had been a while since I have read the likes of the character Miss Marple from Agatha Christie works. Now Granny Smith has fulfilled that void in my reading life. Granny Smith is not exactly old to be a Granny by heart but irrespective of that, everyone has been calling her Granny. She is a young at heart woman who has a trait to be curious about everything that is happening around her. So when her friend Sheila gets engaged to Nigel, who is y [...]


    3. “It’s Miss Marple on steroids.”A brutal murder in a small Welsh village and the police are stuck without a clue. With no motive and no real suspect the investigation soon grinds to a halt. Enter Mary Alice Smith, otherwise known as Granny Smith, the rock music loving, pipe smoking, chaos causing amateur sleuth with a difference.Granny has a talent for mayhem and soon those talents are put to good use as our intrepid pensioner starts the unravel the case, which finds her provoking Chief Ins [...]


    4. I love the idea of this book and really loved the welsh parts and the natural characters. I struggled a bit with the swearing and toilet humor in places but overall this felt like a very genuine and heartfelt story about some wonderfully interesting people!



    5. Murder, She SaidDelightful, crabby but friendly, Granny Smith sets out to discover who killed her next door neighbor. A fun story, everyone who loves Miss Marple or the TV show Murder, She Wrote, will enjoy.



    6. Pipe Smoking, Metalhead Granny to the Rescue (Audiobook)This book is definitely not your typical mystery. First, Granny Smith, age 71 on the outside only, is not your prim and proper female detective like Miss Marple or Jessica Fletcher. Second, you do not typically giggle quite so much during most mysteries. Pipe Smoking, Metalhead Granny to the Rescue (Audiobook)Many Kudos to G. M. Dobbs. You make the reader feel like they are an active part of the story that includes entertaining characters a [...]


    7. If you are a fan of the humorous cozy then you will love this one. Granny turns sleuth and doesn't care who she upsets in her quest for the truth. Even the Inspector couldn't get the upper hand of Granny and as for poor Dai Twice, the Special Police Constable, well he had no chance!Granny Smith Investigates is the first book in a series of four, and is a good listen if you want something light and funny.NarratorNarrated by Fiona Thraille, and considering that in the first couple of chapters she [...]


    8. Fiona Thraille does a wonderful job narrating this cozy mystery.Granny Smith is an older lady living in Wales.She's ecentric ,always looking for an argument and grumpy.She is also'Miss Marple on Steroids' and can solve a crime even if she nearly gets killed her self.A town girl,Sheila is about to get married.Something seems strange with the groom to be and his adult 'daughter'.There is also a murder in town.Though the local constable wishes she'd go away,she doesn't and persists until she finds [...]


    9. "One apple that improves with age"Let's dispel one misapprehension, okay? Granny Smith is nothing like Miss Marple and G.M. Dobbs is nothing like Agatha Christie. Having said that, this is fun to read. The Welsh elements, the humour, the familiar characters and a well-developed plot combine to produce a better than average cozy mystery. What more could you ask for? Apart from the next in the series?


    10. This was the first I've read this author and if others are as good, it won't be the last.I loved it from the beginning. The way that Granny Smith got her "nickname", the pipe.you name it. She was not only an unusual character, but one that you'd never expect to find doing the things she did. The book was funny, interesting, well written and made me want more. Definitely a hit with me. I recommend it highly for those who like a humorous mystery. Great!!


    11. It took me awhile to get into this book. I promise it was nothing to do with the writing. It was my attachment to The Miss Marple by Agatha Christie and Granny Smith's strap line Miss Marple on steroids. The only thing the two might have in common is age.It's a good cosy mystery. Get it, read it, love it. An enjoyable book.


    12. Granny is playing amateur sleuth in uncovering the facts behind the murder of her friend Edith. Edith's husband Stanley is being questioned but Granny doesn't for one minute believe he's guilty. In Granny Smith Investigates, the author accomplishes a decent murder mystery without all the unnecessary verbiage.


    13. The eccentric Welsh pensioner gets her teeth (usually gripping a corn-cob pipe) into solving the mysterious murder of a friend in the village. Despite being ignored and warned off by the police, she persists. This delightful short story makes great family reading with plenty of humour. I can just imagine a nice TV comedy series from this.


    14. I loved this book. Granny Smith is not the usual detective/amateur sleuth, she is an "unique character". The writing style of the author is very entertaining. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times. In my eyes the first half of the book was better than the second half. But I enjoyed it and I definitely will read more of Granny Smith. A book I will certainly recommend to friends.


    15. This was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the main character and the setting. I also thought Fiona Thraille's reading of the audiobook was delightful, so I hope they do more for the series.



    16. Goodthis book was so ertaing and it made you enjoy the way people can play apart in the lives of people in a small village.
