Book Description

When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder. Suddenly she’s learning the foreign language of southern speak, resisting her attraction to local celebrity Jackson Wright, and dealing with more mayhem than she can handle.

A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery that Tess attempts to solve. As she gets close to the truth, she encounters danger, mystery, a lot of southern charm, and a new temptation for which she’s not sure she’s ready.

My Review

I always enjoy a well written cozy mystery, and Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction fits this criteria! Amy Metz is a good storyteller with a good writing style. I like the small town setting of Goose Pimple Junction. Each chapter begins with a quaint Southern saying which are cutesy and interesting.

There are two connected mysteries going on throughout the book that are both set in Goose Pimple Junction in different time periods. One is a story about an unsolved bank robbery and murder and the repercussions that spun off of that occurrence. This story occurs back in the 1930s. The other story is set in the present day and features Tess Tremaine, a new transplant from up north. Goose Pimple Junction is a small town in Tennessee. Tess has bought an historic home that she is remodeling. And she has taken a part time job in the local bookstore. But who is interested in her house and in particular the key she found? I was kept in suspense throughout the book!

There is also romance! Clean romance that is...how refreshing. Local celebrity writer Jackson Wright is set pursuing newly arrived Tess. And he is not the only one! But newly divorced, wary, middle-aged Tess is making Jack work for it!

A humorous romantic cozy mystery that is a fun and pleasant read! It is only 99 cents in the US Amazon store and $1.11 in the Canadian Amazon store so definitely a great buy!
