Interesting storyline with several twists. No graphic violence, sex or drag-you-down drama.
Believable characters with distinct personalities. Entertaining dialogue.
Not all questions are answered but there might be more information in the next book of this series.
No desire to re-read this story. I may be interested in other works by this author.
Her next job is to prove that the party arrested for the killing is innocent. Her questions are not well received and she is threatened.
The town is quaint and unique and the information on how chickens are prepared for the market is interesting. The characters are developed and there is her Best Friend, Genesis, the police chief, Brash, a fireman, Cutter. Romance in the background and a hint of something unusual in Madison's past. I recommend this book.
Fortunately the reader will meet some of these characters again in the next book "When The Stars Fall.".
Madison (Maddy) Reynolds has lost her husband and home in Dallas, and is forced to move with her twin teenagers back to her small hometown in Texas and live with her spunky eighty-year-old grandmother. To try to make ends meet, she opens a temporary service and finds herself walking chicken houses for a week for the owner who will be out of town. Much to her shock, she finds that owner lying dead in one of the houses on her first day at work! (Not a good beginning.) But Maddy is a trooper and does what she has to do through the whole ordeal, even if it does involve interacting with the Police Chief Brash deCordova who was her high school heart throb.
Again, I enjoyed Becki Willis' writing and highly recommend her work. CHICKEN SCRATCH is a great clean, mystery with some fun elements.
Where Chicken Scratch succeeds in setting itself apart from the enormous pack is solely down to our heroine, Madison. Though not incapable by any means, she stands out by being believably flawed. She's broke, she's struggling, she's almost 40 with 2 kids and is still basically aimless, and she seems more or less unconcerned by the danger surrounding her because she's got more important things to worry about. Where a cookie-cutter lead would've fixated and lost sleep, or run to the nearest hunk for rescuing, after a series of mysterious phone calls, Madison simply shrugs them off and gets back to work. It's refreshing to see a woman portrayed as something other than a screeching teenager when danger looms.
The very last part, at end, was a nail bitter.
Would liked to have known if her granny sold her the house, and for how much.
Would I reccommend it. Not really.
