While I may not be a member of Lee's true target audience with this book, I really enjoyed the story. For Glory is more than a mystery, it's a story of what happens to Carlyle Hudson when she goes home to Kansas after her mother's death to pick up the pieces. Lyle has a newly acquired house and bridal shop that she's not quite sure what to do with, not to mention a little Smooth-haired Fox Terrier named Glory that she seemingly has no desire to put up with.
And naturally, you know a man will come into the picture sooner or later, too. Lee's gift is writing strong characters, and that includes the little dog, Glory!
Elisabeth Lee (Author of For Glory)
Lyle is full of spunk with a lot of attitude, and you soon see that all of the Hudson women Lyle and her three aunts, Luce, Loretta and Lenore are quite a hilarious bunch. While I enjoyed getting to know them, and the story in general, I felt like the two mysteries in the story were a little lacking. Not in actual excitement, of course, but in terms of how they were all figured out. To me, this wasn't your typical "whodunnit" story where the reader is right there trying to figure out who the culprit is.
The evidence really wasn't presented in a way that the reader could pick up on all the clues, in my opinion. I noticed some suspicious actions by characters at times, but couldn't figure out what any motives would be. And why random acts of burglary by young thugs seemed to happen with great frequency to Lyle I'll never understand. Overall, though, it was a light, entertaining read that will certainly get you laughing.
And everything is resolved quite nicely at the end, and for me that's when the pieces really started falling together and everything made sense.

I guess the sleuth in me just likes to be able to figure it all out as I go. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Lyle Hudson, a tough talking woman who makes her living playing cards, returns to her hometown of Lawrence, Kansas after hearing of her mother's unexpected death. While looking through her mother's diary, Lyle begins to uncover a life that her mother never shared with her, prompting her to think her mother may have been murdered.
Crank phone calls, the ace of spades containing the words: Although For Glory can be classified as a mystery, it is more of a comedy.
The relationships Lyle has with her aunts, her mother's dog Glory, and MacDonald, a handsome detective, keep Lyle, and the reader, distracted from the mysterious events that follow her mother's death. Lyle's humorous thoughts and the conversations she has with her aunts, specifically the twin aunts who own a candy business that has an erotic line of candy, out shadow the scenes where Lyle finds herself confronted by attackers and pay up notes. Elisabeth Lee writes these scenes with a lack of urgency, which may be because the reader sees the story through Lyle's eyes.
Lyle often takes on the persona of a mix between Jackie Chan and Clint Eastwood when she takes down men twice her size and then walks away with a tough guy bravado, showing no fear. There is a lack of the edge of your seat feeling that most mysteries have, but the humorous exchanges Lyle has with her aunts and the love affair she has with MacDonald are enough to keep the reader entertained.
As a twenty-five year old, I'm not Lee's target audience; however, I think all of my aunts would enjoy the spunky, sexy, and strong attitude of the something Lyle. Doch ausgerechnet in dieser malerischen Bilderbuchkulisse wird eine Leiche gefunden.
