There's no arguing the math. Murder in the Ozarks adds up to a solid mystery with dynamic characters. --Jen Forbus of Jen's Book Thoughts
I finished reading Murder in the Ozarks and congratulate you on a writing project well done. It's an enjoyable, intriguing read. I especially think you did an excellent job of portraying the physical and atmospheric setting of the Ozarks. I felt right at home in Wishing Springs and personally loved the Eureka connections, such as Sparky's. You breathed life into distinct characters of the region, such as Slim and Mabel, and in the course of the novel made me care about Andy and his well-being -- and his relationship with Malinda unfolded nicely, as we true romantics expect. I recognized and appreciated how you drew from people near and dear to you, and incorporated stories and features of the region to help spin an interesting tale. Thanks for the good read! --Comments by author Raymond Teague
Steve Weems' murder mystery offers an unusual protagonist: an accountant. Murder in the Ozarks is the only book - murder mystery or otherwise - that I can recall where the main character is a bean counter. --Arkansas Libraries, Fall 2011
