When Hilde Higgins takes a job styling hair at a funeral home, she hardly considers it an adventurous career. But while working on a "client" named Mabel, she realizes she's got the wrong body---and when she points this out to her employer, she's promptly accused of theft! What's going on---and where's the real Mabel? 256 pages, softcover from Barbour.
Watch the tangled mess a Kansas hairdresser gets herself into when she reports to the funeral home that the body she is to work on is not the same as in her reference photo. Is she being punished when the director accuses her of stealing a diamond ring? Will Hilde Higgins’s former boyfriend help her unravel the issue or only bring more trouble to her life?
Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband, Norman, and her son, Danny. She’s authored nine books and is currently at work on her newest series. All of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as your soul.
I really enjoyed this book. I also really like this author's writing style. Missing Mabel is available now and I would recommend giving it a try. I plan to read the next book in this series called Blown Away: A Curl Up and Dye Mystery.
I've eagerly awaited this new cozy Christian mystery series by Nancy Mehl and my anticipation has been well-rewarded. Once again Ms. Mehl sets a snuggly, cozy tone, gently shares her faith, provides readers with a coterie of delightful characters, and sprinkles the plot with tantalizing clues to pique our interest.
Hilde is a quirky, funny character and easy to love. While trying to solve the mystery of Mabel, she deals with real-life issues. Making new friends, dealing with a mom who isn't happy with her career choice and learning to fall in love. I recommend this story to anyone who is looking for a fun, easy read with Christian characters and a mystery to solve.
Altogether a delightful story and enjoyed getting to know these new friends.
A fun read, recommend you add to your reading list
This is a wonderful Christian-based mystery with lots of twists and turns. I was never sure who exactly I should be focusing on to be the culprit. Nancy Mehl really knows how to tell a tale, entertwining so many different characters without losing any of the story's momentum!
This heartwarming mystery might surprise readers who are under the impression that spirituality-based mysteries are populated by self-righteous holy rollers with no psychological complexity. Hilde puts the lie to that. She's an adorable eccentric, with maroon-and-black hair, a punkish wardrobe and a weird weakness for Spam casseroles (the author provides several of Hilde's more tasty recipes). She's feisty enough to have a sassy mouth, but devout enough to get a case of the guilts when she doesn't always practice that pesky "love thy neighbor" part of the Scripture. Like all good mysteries, the solution to the body-switching proves us with a fine "Ah, ha!" moment, but it's Hilde's goofily-good character that kept me grinning as I turned the pages. If you've momentarily OD'ed on blood and gore and serial killers, Hilde is the perfect anecdote. As for myself, I can't wait for the girl's next funeral home adventure.
Missing Mabel by Nancy Mehl captured my attention from the very start! Part of the Hometown Mysteries series, Missing Mabel is a marriage of love and suspense (I loved how the caption under the title read “A Curl Up and Dye Mystery” which fit this story to a “T!”). This was definitely one of my favorite reads this month and so easy to finish in just one sitting!
