Spring is Sprung

Before I get to this week’s mystery, the winner of the $10 Amazon gift card is Sandra Orchard!

Now here’s a recap on last week’s Super Sleuth:

A man filed a fraudulent tax return, and the IRS promptly sent him a $10,000 refund. So figuring, Why not try my luck again? he tried again. Why did he get caught?

  1. He claimed his dog as a dependent and several vet bills, asking for a refund of $15,000.
  2. He filed tax returns requesting more than $14 trillion in refunds.
  3. He claimed four nonexistent children as dependents and requested a refund of $20,000

#2 Even the IRS raised an eyebrow at cutting him a check for the total amount of the refunds: more than $14 trillion. Moore pleaded guilty to cashing the $10,000 check.

Now, for our final Super Sleuth–well not final, just for a while.

It’s Spring here in North Mississippi and everything is blooming, even my bicycle.









As I travel the highways around here, I see fields and fields of yellow with tractor tracks in them.


So, the Super Sleuth for this week is: What is the field of yellow?

Is it:

  1. Canola
  2. Sun Hemp
  3. Weeds



Leave your answer in the comments section. The answer will be here next week with a new post on some of the questions writers get asked.

Oh, I just had a great idea. When you leave your answer, if you have a question you’ve always wanted to ask an author, leave that question, too!
