Cozy Review: Murder and Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction [Paperback]

I've finished "Murder and Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction" by Amy Metz.

Product Description

Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction is a humorous southern mystery set in a unique town full of quirky residents. Grab a glass of sweet tea and settle in. You'll be laughing and guessing until the very end of this thoroughly entertaining novel.

When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, she thinks she's moved to a quiet little burg. Curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder, and 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.

If brains were dynamite, Willy couldn't blow his nose. Could a murderer be that stupid? Jack can charm the dew right off the honeysuckle. Surely a fine southern gentleman isn't a murderer. But Tess is determined to find out, and Goose Pimple Junction will never be the same.

A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery, which Tess attempts to solve in this cozy mystery. 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.

My Review:

Tess Tremaine moves to Goose Pimple Junction to start a new life.  She moves into an old Victorian and soon is involved in a 75 year old murder mystery.  As she digs deeper she discovers it starts with a bank robbery, murder and a family tragedy set in the 1930's.

She meets some interesting characters especially Jack Wright a handsome local writer that all the women would want in real life since he's smart and funny.  She fights her attraction to Jack for a long time but he's patience with her and finally she succumbs to it.

I loved all the slang/southernisms used because I thought it was funny and I managed to translate what was being said.  I thought it was pretty funny that Jack had to translate to Tess what was being said.

I think it's interesting this book is based on real events that happened but wasn't solved. 


Thanks Amy for sending me your book to review, greatly appreciated!
