Crime Rhymes: From Bad to Verse by Dixie J. Whitted

This was a fun read.  I read a lot of mysteries.  This is a book of rhymes that are short and sum up the book.  Some are tongue in cheek, some are punny, and some are a bit rude but they were all fun to read.

BooksGoSocial and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

Here is a sample of the rhymes they showed to make me want to read the book:

Some samples of the sinister stanzas:
 
AX HER NO QUESTIONS
Abbie's chores in the guest room were licit:
Cleaning up after Uncle John's visit.
But she wasn't alone--
Came her stepdaughter's tone:
"Mrs. Borden..." "Well, Lizzie, what is it?"

NEVER TEASE THE COOK
Pretty Penelope Plowder
Is ladylike if you don't crowd her.
Her fiancé Jack
Dropped a clam down her back--
Don't ask what she put in the chowder.


As you can see, it's a quick read.  It'd be a great present for another mystery lover.  There's even a special section on Sherlock Holmes.  You might even enjoy reading it yourself.  Give it a try!
