Genre: Cozy Mystery
Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction:
When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder. Suddenly she’s learning the foreign language of southern speak, resisting her attraction to local celebrity Jackson Wright, and dealing with more mayhem than she can handle.
A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery that Tess attempts to solve. As she gets close to the truth, she encounters danger, mystery, a lot of southern charm, and a new temptation for which she’s not sure she’s ready.
This was such a laugh to read! I loved the Southern drawl and the whole town of Goose Pimple Junction. The southern language was hard sometimes to understand, but it was fun to read.
The story jumps from the 1930’s where there was an unsolved murder to the Present Day, where we met Tess who has moved to Goose Pimple Junction after her divorce.
This to me is the perfect Sunday murder mystery read and I loved the twists and turn, A great cozy mystery that sucks you in until the very end.
Heroes & Hooligans in Goose Pimple Junction
Goose Pimple Junction is just recovering from a kidnapping and a murder, its first major crimes in years, when trouble begins anew. Life is turned upside down in the quirky little Southern town with the arrival of several shifty hooligans: A philandering husband intent on getting his wife back, another murderer loose in town, a stalker intent on frightening Martha Maye, and a thief who’s stealing the town blind of their pumpkins, pies, and peace. Together, they’re scaring the living daylights out of the residents and keeping the new police chief busier than a set of jumper cables at a redneck picnic. Suddenly, he has his hands full trying to apprehend a killer, stop a stalker, and fight his feelings for the damsel in distress.
Yet again I loved this book! I am hooked on this series and I cant wait to read more.
We are greeted again with the same Southern speak that I have come to love, and I love how each chapter begins with a southern word or phrase and a translation. I loved that in the first book and glad that it carried forward on in this book.
This book sucks you in with more mystery and there are several happening at once time around.
Brilliant series so far, 5 stars!
