Comments to eBook Mighty Old Bones (Thistle Twigg Mysteries, No. 2)
Pooker
A widow of an Army Colonel, Mrs. Thistle is the definitive feisty little old lady...! She is the antithesis of the tired old picture of 70 year old relics. That old view is busted (!) by both the worldly British-born Thistle and her Alabama-raised friend, Twiggy. The two of them get into all sorts of adventures in this 2nd book of their exploits. As the book progresses, we get even more evidence of a most interesting and unusual life led by Thistle. This book is probably not to everyone's taste as it crosses genres and at times requires an open mind about what is real and what is not. In the beginning of the 1st book, Thistle and Twigg, I was a little put off by the alternating narrators (some chapters narrated by Thistle and others by Twigg) but by mid-book, I was delighted and at the end of that 1st book, I could not wait to buy the second. A most interesting read that is finished too soon.

I adore this book. The two main characters Jane and Phoebe are strong females with the conviction to act against injustices. Jane Thistle is a former intelligence operative and Phoebe Twigg a retired Librarian with the knowledge that she is more than society views her as. Both ladies are widows and have been drawn to each other from their inner strengths.

Jane owns and cares for a large parcel of wooded property that has the hidden gift of being a repository of ancient artifacts from Native American tribes. She recently purchased the land next to hers and the previous owner (book one,) dies leaving her cartons labeled and numbered. These cartons contain hints of the treasures within the woods. Jane also has a 'gift' of being able to see beyond the curtain of death.

In this book, Jane quickly realizes that someone is poaching on her property and that it is crucial to stop this intrusion. Phoebe joins in and so does a fellow archeologist friend of Jane's and the adventure picks up speed and force. Could Ancient Welshmen have lived in Alabama.

This book is a novel of suspense and action. It is not a cozy, although the characters are of a cozy 'Bond' type. I do adore this book.

Ms. Saums is quite an Author and traps my attention from the first paragraph until the surprising ending. I love the touch of paranormal that is added. This book speaks to me somehow.

I greatly enjoyed Thistle and Twigg so have been looking forward to this, the 2nd in the series and am not disappointed. Jane Thistle and Phoebe Twigg have continued their friendship in spite of their differences in personality. We alternately see events through each's perspective. Jane loves rambles in her inherited woods and Phoebe prefers to walk on town sidewalks.
There is an early plot flaw. Jane's purse is snatched as they come out of the Piggly Wiggly supermarket. They go on to the hairdresser and the bookstore and Jane drives her car. We're told Jane applies for replacement license and credit cards but not how she manages paying for purchases, driving, etc. I imagined that Phoebe loaned money and that maybe the car keyes had been left in the car in order to get past this glitch and onto the fun part.
Phoebe's flaky sister dumps a scruffy little dog on her. Phoebe does not like dogs, pays no attention to Jane's Lab, can't abide anything that makes a mess, so it's fun to watch the little Lapso win her over.
An old man disappears from the town. There's a bad storm that uproots a tree in Jane's woods exposing a skeleton. The police and archaeologists are called, including an old friend of Jane's, an attractive widower. Phoebe, who claims to be very ordinary, has some odd relatives. We meet new characters, Phoebe's librarian friend and even a couple of little boys. Phoebe continues her fascination with the arsenal that Jane's late husband left her, and we have the old gals out shooting an AK-46 & a half, and other armaments. As in the first book, there is an element of the supernatural which adds to the fun and contributes to making the book an entertaining read.

The first book was interesting. The characters were refreshingly original and the storyline (though a little 'out there') was easy to follow and a pleasure to read. Having set all the characters in the first book, the author just got carried away with her creations. Jane Thistle, a military widow, part-time archeologist AND part-time spy, who also communed with the dead became just too much to accept. She wasn't real. Her new best friend (they bonded immediately - a little odd for two such completely different women) Phoebe Twigg started out as a perfect caricature of the woman born and raised in a small Southern town. But she, too, started developing strange traits and weird relatives in the second book. I'm not into science-fiction and that is where this series seems to be heading. OK for some, but not for me.

Although the characters in the book Mighty Old Bones (Thistle & Twigg Mysteries, No. 2) are well drawn, I would recommend reading the first book of the series,Thistle and Twigg (Thistle & Twigg Mysteries, No. 1), before enjoying this one. The books are a combination of mystery, humor, the paranormal and two empowered sixty something women.

I love who Mary is writing about . Finally an older generation who solve crimes and are independent.love the characters.Hope she writes a third one as I have both of her books 1 & 2
Rolling Flipper
This book, and series is terrific. The characters are easy to picture and relate to. The story lines are enjoyable, but not predictable and the author puts time into doing research on the topics. I have shared with a few friends that range from 18-65 and they all loved the books. I can't wait until another one comes out. Phoebe is a riot!!
just loved her thistle and twigg mysteries..a few tears, a lot of laughs and a great mystery ..who could ask for anything more..
