Great Gift ideas–Two “Bouncing Grandma” Mysteries by A. K. Arenz

Are you done with your shopping yet? I am happy to tell you about two books that would make great Christmas gifts for any reader on your list. Or you could always buy one for yourself!

The first book in this cozy mystery series by A.K. Arenz is titled The Case of the Bouncing Grandma, about Glory Harper, a grandmother who sees a foot dangling from a carpet when her mysterious neighbors move in. Glory isn’t taken very seriously by the police department ever since a skateboarding accident she had resulted in a multi-car pile-up. But, one of the detectives seems to be interested in more than just her story. This book has enough twists and turns to make you feel like you’re on The Whip at the county fair. It was a finalist in the ACFW Book of the Year Contest for 2009.

The enjoyable sequel is entitled The Case of the Mystified M.D. Glory’s pup finds the severed body part this time. There are many secrets in this story, and several of the town’s characters were being blackmailed. Follow the crooked trail left by the blackmailer with Glory and her friends. See if you can solve the mystery before they do.

The author, Alice Arenz, is a friend and prayer partner of mine, and you can find more about her and her other books at

These books are very enjoyable reading suitable for teens and above. My own mom was known by her friends as “Bouncy” before her death, so they have a special meaning to me.

Happy reading!
