Invisible (Ivy Malone Mystery #1): A Review

Invisible (Ivy Malone Mystery Series #1)“She’s not your average crime fighter!”

Imagine a sweet, Christian little old lady with a desire for justice, a knack for finding trouble, and a stubborn streak a mile wide and you are probably beginning to get a picture of Ivy Malone in Lorena McCourtney’s book Invisible.

Forget knitting or Bingo for Malone, with what seems to be the gift of invisibility she decides to take up a new hobby – crime fighting! Spending the night alone in a cemetery after finding out that it is being vandalized is just the beginning of a an adventure filled with plenty of laughs and “uh oh” moments.

For me Ivy’s character makes me think of what it would be like if my Granny had tried to take up crime fighting. She’s got spunk and a strong belief in God, mixed in with a lot of sincerity, a white Thunderbird, lots of time on her hands, a couple of cute older men. Ivy also doesn’t back down from questions of faith in the midst of difficult circumstances. I love that when faced with dilemmas she always remains true to her belief and her conscious.

I picked up this book because it was free on Kindle and sounded interesting. Lorena McCourtney surprised me though and held my attention from the beginning. I absolutely LOVE her character Ivy Malone. While I wouldn’t say this is a believable read, it was certainly enjoyable and I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble Ivy Malone digs up in the next book In Plain Sight (Ivy Malone Mysteries, Book 2)
