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.

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.

My Review:

I cannot remember the last time I read such a fun series, it has been a refreshing change of pace from my recent fare. While reading, I was smiling or chortling 90% of the time, and will admit to laughing aloud on a number of occasions, while my husband claims I also snorted several times. I do recall having coffee go up my nose, which is an experience I would not care to repeat – so I recommend abstaining from liquids during your perusal. Amy Mertz has created an enthralling and addictive community of quirky characters that speak English, but in a decidedly different form of “Southern speak.” I had marked more “Favorite Quotes” than my blog actually has pages for. Having grown up with a father that often spouted such maxims, I was familiar with some of the colorful axioms, but many were just too funny to pass by in a casual manner, so the reading of these books took me a bit longer than most, as I wanted to savor each and every word. To say I enjoyed Ms. Mertz work would be an understatement, I relished it, adored it, want to marry it. The writing was exceptional, easy to follow, highly entertaining, and extremely clever. It was not only funny, but intelligent and suspenseful. Even, now, I want more and already miss reading about this interesting populace.
