I admit it, I'm a free kindle book junkie. If it's on the free list and looks even *remotely* good, I'll snag it. So far the free books have been mostly mediocre, with a few bright sparkling gems that make it worthwhile (there's also some on the extreme opposite end of the spectrum, but I like to keep my reviews family friendly...)

"Cold Turkey" definitely counts as a gem. Which was even more surprising, coming from the publisher that it does. I'm far more accustomed to Ellora's Cave books being heavy on the smut, light on the story, and even lighter on the writing skill. Cold Turkey was an excellent story, no smut at all, and fabulous writing. Very reminiscent of Charlaine Harris's "Aurora Teagarden" series - excellent main characters, a little lighter on the supporting cast, but overall an enjoyable read. And really, what's not to love about a turkey nesting in the backseat of a vintage Mustang?

And the biggest proof that I liked? I went and bought the rest of the series. So far so good!

Although, if someone wants to comment on my review and let me know - in the Epilogue a new storyline is introduced, do we ever see the conclusion of that? Book Two has a different plot so far.

I was pleasantly surprised at this book. I gave it a try on a whim. This book had no reviews and I was skeptical about good it was. Boy, was I in for a treat. It was a wonderful book. I liked the hint of romance but that the focus was mainly on the mystery. You don't find that too often these days. The suspense was great and kept you guessing right up until the end. I like how the end gave you a taste that there is more to come between the hero and heroine. I definitely will read more from this author.

I enjoyed this book. I did. I will likely buy and read more in this series. The only reason I gave this book three stars is that I became more and more annoyed with Aunt Gerda's callousness and obliviousness toward both Annike's predicament and finally, her concussion. (Gerda) "Why are you just sitting around?" Why indeed? She has stitches in her head! She was in an accident! She needs to rest! Then again, Annike has no sore muscles from being knocked unconscious. That's pretty amazing right there.

I also thought some of the characters were flat. Simon has long hair. Simon drives an old van. Therefore, Simon is not only a hippie but he has unconventional politics to boot. In fact, he is a communist. Why? Because everyone in town says so. Really? Not a socialist? Not a liberal? Did she ever talk to him?

This was not a bad start. I hope the series gets better.

Ok, I admit that I just last week rated Deadly Gamble: The First Charlie Parker Mystery (Charlie Parker Mystery Series) the best I had found on Kindle, but this one is even better, and it is the first that I have given 5 stars. I got so entertained by the eccentric characters of the small town that I forgot to keep my mind on figuring out "who-dunnit". It is a light-hearted mystery, but that doesn't mean that it's a no-brainer. I usually figure out the culprit in the mysteries I read, and I did not come close on this one. The ending is also very unexpected and caused me to laugh out loud, literally.

I thought the book was good. I really enjoyed the humor and became very fond of "That Damn Turkey".
It is well worth the time to spend reading it. You cannot help but laugh at parts and wonder about others. I look forward to another book in the Events Unlimited.

This review may contain spoilers!

I'll start by giving a heads up to the editing nuts out there (myself included!)--I noticed maybe 1-2 typos or editing issues in this book. If there were more, I didn't notice them, and generally they drive me insane, so they were hidden if there were more.

This is a really good book. The characters (small town, generally older population) were all interesting and entertaining. I didn't see the main character, Annike, as her age--almost 40. She seemed to be younger, both in maturity and attitude. But the chemistry between her and Sarkisian, the sheriff, is just wonderful. It was blatantly obvious that a romance would be developing between them eventually (although nothing happens between them in this book, it's set up to possibly happen later on in the series).

I think my favorite character was TDB. For a turkey, she had a lot of pluck (*snicker*)!

Usually I can figure out who the bad guy is, but I was surprised with this one.

Definitely get this while it's free! I'm off to buy the rest of the series!

Small town cozy in which a widow returns to live with her aunt after an unsatisfactory experience with a Big City accounting firm. She has dumped on her the chore of administering the efforts of her aunt's woman's club to conduct the town's annual Thanksgiving celebration. In the midst of her maddening efforts, murder occurs, she discovers the body and is brought into the orbit of the Police Chief (filling a post her husband had held before killed in the line of duty). Her interactions with the townspeople (all well known to her), the police chief and the murder investigation, comprise the contents of the book. I would not label it a Romance as some have. While, as is true of many cozy's, romance rears its head, it does not dominate.
The heroine is a congenial character, the Chief is not a blusterer nor know it all, most of the townspeople are more individualized and human than the stereotypes one usually finds and the plot is reasonably coherent. There is a certain amount of clutter as the book nears its denouement and multiple suspects still are in the running. Noticeable-though not particularly disturbing.
All-in-all, a good entry in the 'light cozy mystery with a touch of humor and romance' category.
