Description
 

Cora Felton may look like everyone s favorite grandmother. But the white-haired, bespectacled Puzzle Lady swears, smokes, gambles, and is even dodgy on the subject of how many husbands she s had. So it strikes her long-suffering niece Sherry Carter as amusing when Cora announces, I m tired of living a lie! The inspiration for this sudden burst of honesty is a promotion by Granville Grains featuring the Puzzle Lady on a bus tour of televised personal appearances. Cora can t think of anything she d like to do less- except maybe quit smoking- than travel the supermarkets of I-95 hawking the new and improved Corn Toasties to her legions of fans. And someone else mustn t want her to go either, because they ve left a knife planted in her front door with a crossword puzzle attached. But when Sherry solves the puzzle she can t decide whether the enigmatic message is a threat, a love note, or- creepier still- both. Like it or not, Cora and Sherry must take their show on the road, along with a makeshift TV crew that includes a smarmy producer with a bad hairpiece, an abrasive director, an overambitious publicist, and two overgrown child-actors with some very adult problems. Throw in a few uninvited guests, including a roly-poly munchkin who s had an unrequited crush on Cora since high school and Sherry s abusive ex-husband, and you don t need to be a puzzle expert to know this trip is going to be murder
