Oh, this is an Author Bio? In that case…
Jennifer Oberth is a sweet, gorgeous, intelligent gal with a great sense of humor. She likes to take long walks on the beach where she thinks up delicious ways to murder people and give them motives, means, opportunities and fake alibis.
Don't randomly ask her what she's thinking because she'll tell you. She doesn't want a repeat of that time she was with a group of strangers and she blurted out her frustration at her car. "How on earth am I expected to kill somebody in the woods without being seen when I can't turn off the automatic headlights?"
She didn't know why they shrank back and gave her a wide berth the rest of the evening.
She didn't know why no one offered advice to get around this tricky annoyance.
It's a coincidence she then started writing cozy mysteries set in 1875…
Jennifer Oberth (the sweet, gorgeous, intelligent gal with a great sense of humor) has two cats (Copper & Outlaw). When she's not at work, cursing the computer when it doesn't work, she can be found at home, cursing the computer when it doesn't work.

Hey, that's not fair. This is in the free eBooks section and the download says full book but it's only a sample with a link at the end for the rest of the book at cost.
Seriously, undo this, author. This is a terrible technique that will only make people ban you and your works. Believe in your books and offer a 25% sample for free of your priced novel.
- Who Murdered The Ghost?
on June 06, 2012
What a fun short story (mystery)!
I adore Hazel Cartbell with her razor wit and running commentary on everything from the local nun horning her way into the investigation to her crush on her much older - and oblivious - boss, the chief of police.
I had a lot of fun riding alongside Cartbell as she hunts for clues, fields family problems, stops for spaghetti and tracks down the killer.
I highly recommend 'Who Murdered The Ghost?'
- The Hudson Agency - Chicago Style
on June 11, 2012
'The Hudson Agency - Chicago Style' by Ellie Oberth is a fun, straight-forward ride from beginning to end. First we meet Danby, a not-ready-to-retire investigator with a bum knee that everyone calls 'Gramps'. He gets saddled with a newbie, Elmo, and they start the search into a series of near-fatal 'accidents' of a Chicago businessman.
We meet a host of colorful characters that Oberth described with quick brushstrokes that keep the story moving forward until it's unusual end.
It's told in present tense, which I thought would be awkward to read but after the first few sentences, it flowed beautifully. Besides, by then I was sucked in by the old curmudgeon.
'The Hudson Agency-Chicago Style' is a must-read for Danby's first person narrative alone.
