Granny Takes Las Vegas

Martha Mosey Kane—former rodeo queen and shirttail relative of Annie Oakley—sees life as an 80-year-old widow as no obstacle, but a banquet. Staying fit, loving pets, baking pies and starring in trick-shooting shows for daughter Pepper Kane’s Best Little Bed, Barn & Breakfast in Oregon help her blow a raspberry at old age. But when “Granny Oakley,” her bestie, new man and old horse bring their act to Las Vegas for National Finals Rodeo week, a murderer puts Martha in their sights. Her double is found dead in the Red Rock Rendezvous pool. A prison-pale stablehand skulks about, a jealous showgirl stirs trouble and a bad dude from her past makes waves. Will Martha’s Sin City debut by faux parachute make newspaper front pages, or bury her in the obituaries?
