Review: Biggie and the Meddlesome Mailman by Nancy Bell


Author: Nancy Bell


Biggie Weatherford lives in Job's Crossing, Texas. This is also where nosey mailman Luther Abernathy lives and works. When Luther is found murdered Biggie sets out to find out why and who would have stamped Luther dead on arrival.

With the help of JR Biggie's twelve year old grandson Biggie runs into more troubles than a rattlesnake in Texas.

JR just wants to win his baseball game but soon he is bitten by the snooping bug and when him and Biggie are kidnapped JR knows that Texas law will win if only they can live long enough for the calvery to arrive.

In Texas JR gets more of an education that he can read in any book but thank goodness Biggie is always there with a hand in keeping him just out the reach of chaos. Okay maybe not always but they do try to keep eachother from being worm food.
