    And another Great Woman PI is born!

    P.J. Brackston’s new Brother’s Grimm Mystery series debut novel is a Cozy-Noir, comical and fanciful tale starring some of our childhood fairytale heroes and heroines only all grown up. Using humor plus a playful, sarcastic and witty narrative readers are treated to her one of a kind brilliant storytelling voice which brings to life this fantastical story that showcases her charming, offbeat and often whimsical characters and her fantastic fairytale-fitting backdrops. Her amazing imaginary world construction and the dynamics between her siblings, plus introducing the world to the next great woman PI is phenomenal. I’ve loved all of Paula Brackston’s works and will continue to and now I’ll be anxiously awaiting more from her evil twin P.J. Brackston too! In Eighteenth Century Bavaria in a town called Gesternstadt, thankfully surviving her near fatal brush with a witch in a gingerbread house as a small girl, lives the accomplished, self-aggrandized unconventional private detective Gretel. She’s been summoned to Nuremberg by Herr Duruer the Much, Much younger to assist in locating precious works of art that have been stolen from his apartment. Unfortunately the messenger dies in her house so Gretel must use the assistance of her older doltish brother Hansel, also a survivor of the “witch incident” to get them out of town and away from Gesternstadt’s town cop, Kapitan Strudel who upon learning of yet another untimely death will no doubt want Gretel behind bars, not sleuthing, and Gretel loving the finer things needs this case to stock her coffers. Hansel is all too happy to help when he realizes their visit coincides with Nuremberg’s Uber Weisswurstfest and he’ll not only get to taste great food but also be able to reconnect with his school chum, Wolfie. Knee deep in danger and hot on the trail of the thief, Gretel with the help of some highly unusual assistants plus Hansel and Wolfie is hopeful that she will solve this puzzling mystery.

    A now adult Gretel of Hansel and Gretel fame is now working as a detective. Her latest case takes her to Nuremberg when she is hired to find two paints for Albrecht Durer the Much, Much Younger. These paintings of frogs, done by his ancestor Albrecht Durer the Younger, have much sentimental value. Can she crack the case? The mystery started out slowly, and there were some things thrown in that never really added to the plot or sub-plots. Things did come to a logical and mostly satisfying conclusion, leaving one thing open. The characters are okay, although I had a hard time really getting to like very many of them. Do note that is mystery is aimed at adults, not the middle grade audience the title and cover might suggest.
