Details on how to win an e-book copy of this book at the end of the review.
This hilarious tale is set during the early part of World War II. Since I was a child during this period, much of what was in this story brought back many memories.
Mrs. Odboddy has an active imagination, and is always on the lookout for those who might be spies, or who are involved in nefarious deeds. Because she’s a tad hard of hearing, at times she misinterprets what is being said.

No matter what anyone else may think of her and her hair-brained schemes, she is more often right than wrong. Because of this, she has put herself in jeopardy even though she doesn’t realize it.
As she takes on each day, she handles wartime food shortages, does her part for the war effort, deals with chickens that aren’t as promised, and a romance from the past., She follows up clues, and is coerced into telling a huge lie.
I’ve read a lot of books that are supposed to be funny, but this is the first one that made me laugh loudly many times. If you’d like to brighten your day, pick up a copy of Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot.
