Animated Mailbox Opening and ClosingDear Mrs. Bundle Friends, 
    The thrill of seeing mystery lovers of all ages embrace all of wonderful North Pillson Corners is so very satisfying!  In this fifth mystery, Mrs. Bundle's efforts are focused on solving a mystery in Springfield, Vt. As usual, Cracker is at her side to offer assistance and unwavering loyalty at all costs. There's a loose cannon named "Hambone" causing a lot of trouble in this little burg, and Mrs. Bundle is right in the thick of it. Meanwhile, it seems there are a number of men of a mature age---all available---getting in her way.
    Your emails and postings on the MRS BUNDLE MYSTERY SERIES Facebook Fan Page are truly "fan-tastical,"  and reinforce that we are all kindred spirits in our love for the North Pillson Corners way of life.  Sharing our passion for family-oriented books (with a bit of naughtiness to make it fun) that celebrate humor, nature, strong women and honorable men, intrigue in the strangest places, good old-fashioned recipes, and the young at heart and spirit is what Mrs. Bundle's "little world" is all about. Thank you for being such LOYAL Mrs. Bundle fans, for enjoying the wacky things that occur throughout Pillsonville, Vermont, and for joining in on the roller coaster ride of Mrs. Bundle's escapades and explorations, however impetuous they might be!
                                               Best wishes to you all!  
                                                                  Author Allison Cesario Paton

 Review of the fourth mystery in the series: "MRS BUNDLE'S HAIR-RAISING ADVENTURES was an absolute joy to read!! Mrs. Bundle is such a well-drawn character that one feels as if she is your friend. The atmosphere---Vermont---is etched perfectly---so much so that I was shocked to see that I was still in Florida when I read it! The supporting characters...are icing on the cake--each with a clearly defined personality and humorous, snobby, gossipy, etc. Rates 5 stars---my only regret is that I could not give it 10 stars!"

MRS. BUNDLE'S THIRD MYSTERY

    "I just finished Mrs. Bundle's Maine Vacation!  It was so great! and the timing was so perfect - especially because I bought the book the day that my college friends and I took the ferry to Peaks Island!! I love Mrs. Bundle and Angie and Cracker! Thanks so much for sharing the adventures of these wonderful people with all of us." Carol C. 

     Finished your books a couple weeks ago and really enjoyed them.  Reminded me of the 1st. Ladies Detective Agency series which I love.  Your characters are great and will give us years of adventure.” P. Corey    
  “I absolutely loved Mrs. Bundle!!!!!!   I told my mom how good it was and now she is going to read it!!!!!!!!! How should I go about getting the next Mrs. Bundle??????    K. Gleason, CT

  "Mrs. Bundle is a joy and a surprise!"  Lois Reed
      "Mrs. Bundle II arrived this weekend....thank you...i have started it, but am very busy in the barn right now...besides...i want to "savor" it....i know we will have lots of dreary, cold days ahead that will be perfect for reading instead of doing the outside chores that need to be done." J. Laggis, East Hardwick, VT
      
“We have finished both books and loved them!” The Tuttle Family
    
I have finished the first Mrs. B book, and thoroughly enjoyed it---plan to start the second this evening. They make excellent, cozy-in-bed reading.” S. Reeves

(The first book in the series) MRS. BUNDLE TAKES A HIKE: The Case of the Singing Swans. Mrs. Bundle was looking for more excitement in “her little world” of North Pillson Corners, Vermont.  Before she can say “Fantastical!”, her fledgling B and C Detective Agency becomes entangled in two mysteries that mix family, trust, power, and betrayal into a very hazardous cocktail.  Little knowing what danger she faces, she puts her deductive skills to the test (with the help of her teenage neighbor, Angie Andersen, and her favorite sidekick, Cracker) and lets her thirst for Adventure lead her to more intrigue and risk than she ever bargained for.   315 pages. 2006

  "Wonderful and quite charming first novel in a series of 3. If Nancy Drew has a grandmother, I'm quite sure she must be Mrs. Bundle. Innocent and full of detail, this is a delicious read -- curl up with a pot of tea and plate of scones and join Mrs. Bundle and her delightful friends."

BUNDLE'S DOG DAYS OF SUMMER: A Case of Artful Arson.  In this second novel in the Mrs. Bundle Mystery Series, it appears that Detective Lettie Bundle may have bitten off much more than she can chew! With the historic Pillson Public Library's problems at crisis level and while she is in the midst of planning Pillson's most monumental fundraising event ever, Mrs. Bundle is thrown into a murder scene "feet first."  Add into the mix the hottest summer in Vermont on record, a sad misfit who desperately needs her help, and a most unusual discovery---all requiring all of her time and resources.  With every challenge taking on a life of its own, it's up to Mrs. Bundle, Cracker, and Angie to solve it all.  Did we mention deadly arson, too....? 635 pages (it's a doozy!) 2007

   "I loved 'Dog Days of Summer'; Mrs. Bundle is like Miss Marple only she's stateside. She is sweet, feisty, loving, and shrewd. What I know is New England women and she's right on target for me as the best kind. You had me with the first walk through the field with Cracker. The dark parts are like Stephen King only they didn't scare me to death. I really loved it!" B. Humphrey

  "Readers...will, no doubt, be charmed by the story, Mrs. Bundle, and the rest of the small, but intriguing, cast of characters." THE COZY LIBRARY review, 2009

 

Q and A with the Author: 

Q: When did you start the Mrs. Bundle series? A: I started writing in 2001 and finished my first Mrs. Bundle mystery in 2003.  After the first was published, things snowballed! Mrs. Bundle is a very likable protagonist, a woman of mature age living in farm country in Vermont with her cat, Cracker, who "helps" her, along with her teenage neighbor, Angie Andersen. Although the series is an adult "Cozy" mystery read, I've found ALL AGES from pre-teens, teens to grandmothers and everyone in between love the series!

Q: Why did you decide to start writing? A: As a watercolorist, I realized writing about charming little North Pillson Corners was a lot like painting, using words instead to capture an image for the reader. It's a challenge. I love having a strong female protagonist. Mrs. Bundle is feminine, but strong---if need be, she can pack a really good punch. too

Q: Are there any similarities between you and Mrs. Bundle? A: Well...she has a reputation for being impetuous, and I've been called that before. She's very competent. She's like a dog on a bone, especially when it has to do with someone who is near and dear to her. Mrs. Bundle doesn't mind getting down and dirty if she has to. Everything isn't always pleasant for Mrs. Bundle but she never turns away from a challenge!

Q: What if the Mrs. Bundle books were turned into a movie? Who would you like to see portray your characters? A: Well, Jean Marsh or Susan Sarandon would be my choice to play Mrs. Bundle. Q. Who would play Cracker? It might be a thespian stretch for both of them, but either Spook or Choo Choo from the 'Top Cat' gang.

   “Spending time with Mrs. Bundle and Cracker is a real joy.  ‘Mrs. B’ is a wonderful role model for women ‘of a certain age.’ Her warmth, intelligence and grit make her a most appealing character and female protagonist.  I eagerly anticipate her next adventure.B. Murphy
