Note: contains spoilers!
Jeff Shelby who brought the funny Moose River Mysteries is back with a new series. Raine Day, better known as Rainy, is free! She is divorced, her grown children have both moved out, and she has a small inheritance to help her get her dream home. I can sympathize: I ran away from home when my kids moved out, too. Here our stories differ. Rainy bought a picturestic 5 acre farm with all kinds of buildings, and I didn't. Rainy is a well developed, feisty character with a wicked sense of humor. She wanted to name their first child Cloudy, but her ex-husband didn't see the humor. When she uncharacteristically lets a stranger in her farm house she wonders how hard she would have to hit him with her wine glass to knock him out if he turns into a bad guy.
The farm creates the mystery with human bones showing up in one of the outbuildings and then with said building burning down. Will Rainy be able to solve the mystery while getting hit on by three men (her life in Arlington was devoid of such pursuits), coming to terms of life in a small town where people seem to know things about her before she does, and still keep the laugh out loud humor going?
You'll have to read this to judge for yourself, but I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series!
My only concern about this book is that it looks as though it was published September of this year. This is October. I want the second in the series and I want it NOW. Jeff Shelby - how fast can you write? I'm here and ready to purchase the next book as soon as it's ready! Thank you for a delightful read!
Although the author provided me with an Advance Reader copy of this book for reviewing/editing purposes prior to publication, I can assure you that my review is totally unbiased. I have also purchased this book in its final form to add to my collection of Jeff Shelby’s excellent books.
Author could use a good editor. Repetitive is a problem; head/heading/headed overused, along with just, a popular junk word. Also, main character was always being asked if she was okay. I got really tired of that.
These books are fine for light reading, and author comes up with attractive locations.
If you have read any of Shelby's books, you'll want to check out this new series. If you haven't read any of his books, WHY NOT??? This is bound to be another great series.
I was given an advance copy of this for an honest review.
