"Engaging and hilarious, Uprooting Ernie is the perfect summer read with its Long Island setting, light (but not trite) prose and very human humor." TAMSEN SCHULTZ, best-selling author of the Windsor Series mysteries

Uprooting Ernie is an intriguing murder mystery, full of twists and turns, interesting characters, and hilarious escapades you don’t want to miss.” ANGEL SEFER, best-selling author of The Greek Isles Series

"Oh what a fun read!...There are some seriously superb ideas in this book! The names especially—I mean, how not to love Sexy Beast, the most adorable, lovable purse-sized doggie in the world, who just happens to be a millionaire, owning a mansion for his house. And his human, the Death Diva (aka Jane Delaney)? Come on, admit you’re smiling at this point... Yeah, lots of good chuckles, a bit of nail-biting suspense, a love triangle of sorts, or at least a good dilemma in the subject—all my faves when it comes to a good cozy mystery!!! Really entertaining book!!! Two thumbs up!" BOOKBUG'S WORLD

"This is a fun, quick read on a summer day... I enjoyed the humor—Jane is a funny, funny lady." IT'S NOT ALL GRAVY

Death Diva Jane is simply going about her business, which in this case requires her to empty a three-liter spigot box of cheap rosé on a grave, when she and her furry sidekick Sexy Beast make a grisly discovery in the town cemetery.

The victim was murdered three decades ago, but memories are fresh and old grievances fresher as facts come to light and fingers start pointing. Naturally Jane must investigate. Well, what would you do if one of your best pals turned out to be Suspect Numero Uno?

Meanwhile, between her amorous ex and a sexy bad boy who keeps popping up in the most distracting way—not to mention the (creepy? bizarre? pathetic?) guys she’s meeting through a dog lovers' dating site—her love life has never been so (creepy? bizarre? pathetic?)… interesting.

Book 2 in the Jane Delaney mystery series. Approximately 228 pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another winner for the Death Diva! Undertaking Ernie is as delightful and interesting as the first book. Real humor balances a poignant tale of her serious but illegal research into a death that touches someone she cares about. The twist and turns of the novel keep the story moving at a good pace. The excellent presentation of the characters evoked very real reactions as I read, Throughout the book, these people made me laughed or irritated me or made me feel sad for them; that is good writing. The Death Diva is just minding her business, pouring wine on a grave to celebrate the woman’s angel birthday when she manages to uncover a dead body in the most appropriate of places, a cemetery. Well she doesn’t exactly uncover it, nature does, but she does discovers it in an attempt to rescue Sexy Beast. For those of you who haven’t read the first book, Sexy Beast is a an adorable and often hilarious toy poodle in her charge. Her business is death, or at least taking care of errands related to death for the deceased or their families and friends. The two guys in her life play a smaller part than in the previous book, but we get a good taste, not literally darn it, of both Martin and Dom. I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
