We are also treated to great phrases of homegrown vernacular such as absogulldarnlutely. Many others come to play as the town seniors try to discuss adult relations in clean and mixed gender phrasing.
The zingers continue in "Is it Hot Enough for you." The next stories show more of the spirit and mettle of GPJ townfolk and how it gets passed down.
In the long tale, during Apple Day I had to laugh out loud when Lou interrogates her older sister about a mysterious beau, using the classic question, "Who are his people?"
If you enjoy small town antics and colorful southern language, you'll want to visit Goose Pimple Junction where the folk may argue amongst themselves but respect their differences and are quick to lend a helping hand... along with an opinion.
I own the two other books in this series but was given this book in exchange for my review. If you like TV shows like Gilmore Girls or Hart of Dixie, if you will enjoy a more colorful Mitford, pick up Amy Metz's series.
I'm only halfway thru this book, but am totally enchanted and must get back to it right away.
I would just read the first two books before this one. That is so you will get to know everyone before you jump in the middle of the pond.
Enjoy! I am.
This is a nice introduction to the characters if you have not read the other books. There are many parts that will make you laugh out loud. I am glad I was alone when I read it. :D The backstories are particularly fun for those of us who have read the first two books. Keep writing Amy!
I’ve been following the series of Goose Pimple Junction Mysteries from the first book and have enjoyed them enormously. The quirky characters, the fantastic local atmosphere, the dialect and Southern sayings, the imaginative stories and the heart-warming relationships between the inhabitants are a breath of fresh air. After reading the stories one wants to live there, or at least to visit for a long vacation. And I challenge any readers to not end up quoting the sayings.
This small volume collects some short stories, vignettes that give readers more insight into certain characters and events (like how Jack and Tess got engaged) with a longer novella about the new sheriff and a missing elderly lady (Lou’s sister). There are further complications when somebody is impersonating one of the sheriff’s men, resulting in a less than warm welcome for the new man in the job. But with a bit of canine collaboration, everything ends up well.
The events taking place in this book fall between the two novels Murder & Mayhem and Heroes & Hooligans. It is filled with wisecracks and local expressions, and it’s a quick read that will leave you wanting more. I’m not sure it would be satisfying enough on its own right if you haven’t read the other books in the series, but it is a great addition to it. Ah, and don’t miss the delicious Apple Pie recipes at the end.
Just a couple of expressions I highlighted, to give you some idea:
‘Clive, if I was doing any better, I’d be twins.’
‘He’s so stupid, mind readers charge him half price.’
If you love good-humoured fun, a menagerie of odd but endearing characters, don’t hesitate and get the whole series.
