Set in Whiskey Bayou, Georgia this off beat private gum shoe story is more like a scrape off the gum from the shoe. A likeable narcissistic, accident prone school teacher finds herself literally tripping over a dead body who happens to loom large in her professional life.
The comic relief in this book is low brow at best. The protagonist is constantly in heat, she junks out at every opportunity and struggles with self esteem issues. She drives too fast, puts her priorities in the wrong places and runs into doors with her face. She is a stereotypical klutz, loveable but a klutz.
Comic mystery, romantic comic mystery, slapstick, I just don't know how to describe the story. It is entertaining and you can't look away, somewhat like one of those "your mother is sleeping with your sister's boyfriends, Dad's best friend" daytime "reality" TV shows.
It was an amusing read.
/This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
