Book Description

“The moon is as big as a Dali clock,” the light night caller whispers into DC Courte’s ear. As owner of—and head reporter for—the Indigo Falls Press, she is accustomed to these sorts of things. Even the strange poems pushed through the office mail slot arouse little more than mild curiosity, even though they are typed to look like birds in flight. However, each poem is dedicated to someone recently drowned. And, now, DC is beginning to worry because she is receiving the poems before anyone discovers the bodies.

A figured dressed in flapping black clothes and a big, black hat is stalking the streets of Indigo Falls. It offers people it encounters a “Fine night,” before dragging them off to the river.

The crows have begun to talk to Jerry Woods. They want to know where he has hidden his wife’s body. But, that’s just crazy. Oh, she might need occasional home correction; but he would never kill her... would he?

A maybe not-so-friendly stranger calls DC to let her know that her ex-boyfriend—the guy who nearly strangled her to death—has been released from prison. That is the problem with him not actually killing her; he wasn’t eligible for life imprisonment or the death sentence. Now, he is free to try to finish what he started nearly six years ago.

Whoever is planting Indigo’s citizens in the river wants DC to write his—or is it her—story. If DC continues to refuse, will hers be the next body pulled from the river?

Welcome to Indigo Falls, Oklahoma—a quiet little town studded with nasty little secrets and dangerous people. Stranger, beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those magical firsts August 31, 2013
I was very excited to find this book because it's the first published novel by Molly Vandever. I've known the author all her life and have looked forward to buying her first book for years. And this was certainly no disappointment. The book is self-published and I was surprised by the tiny number of mistakes. Reading through any Stephen King or other popular author's books I'm always surprised by the number of misspelled words, grammatical errors and other flubs such as repeated sentences or omitted words. Granted this is only 245 pages but even if it were multiplied to Stephen King length and the mistakes along with it, she'd still put all those professional editors who work on those other books to shame. And that's a very refreshing quality in itself.

The book is set in a small Oklahoma town and reading it brought me back home to the small town in Oklahoma where both the author and I are from. It was fun reading the actual places that were mentioned in the book and people familiar with that part of Oklahoma will enjoy seeing places they've been as part of the novel. But those are only some of the small delights of the book. The way the author breathed life into her characters made me feel like I knew that little town and most all of the people who lived there. She dropped in just enough actual place names to make me feel that I could drop by the old home town and take a short drive to Indigo Falls and see DC at the Indigo Press and all the other characters at the local watering hole or pizza joint or somewhere in between.

In books this size, there tend to be rather shallow characters with just enough to them to carry the plot. Not so in 'Bad Luck and Whiskey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! August 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
Loved it from beginning to end! Had me guessing the whole time. Very original, yet still had the traditional mystery feel that I love. I hope this author has more to come!
