Homespun, witty, and completely unexpected. Sept. 20 1997
By AMWeste@mail.utexas.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book in one day. I realize that I'm a fast reader, but I read this book in one sitting. It was that entertaining.

I said entertaining, not brain food. It doesn;t reveal the meaning of life, or wax poet over amber waves of grain. Indeed, it is nothing more than a literary frolic. McCafferty uses her small town setting to paint a rather puzzling murder case.
She manages to weave original characters into a genre that has seen almost every kind. No one can forget the freckled P.I. with the dog who is afraid of steps, or the nosy neighbors, or the sheriff. She makes the entire thing pretty darn funny, but without supsending belief for a moment.

Throughout the book, the reader never knows quite what to expect, something will always change.

This is one of the best mystery novels I've read in the past year. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read.

Fun Mystery Sept. 3 2001
By Mark Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Haskell Blevins is frustrated. He's trying to start a private eye business in his hometown of Pigeon Fork, Kentucky, but no one needs his services. So when a beautiful woman walks into his office asking him to investigate the death of her grandmother and her grandmother's pets, he jumps on the case. When he starts receiving threats, he knows he must be on the right track. But what is it? And why would someone kill the bird and cat after killing a nice woman with no enemies?
This book is a fun first novel. Haskell's sense of humor adds much to the story. The story develops well and reaches a good conclusion. I'm glad I tracked down a copy of this novel after reading the author's Tatum twins mysteries (starting with DOUBLE MURDER). I'm definitely looking forward to reading more in the series.
