      I have never lived in a small town like Paint Creek, Kentucky where the population is around 750. However I think this book probably is a pretty genuine representation of the people who live in such a place. It seems like everybody has a nickname and everybody pretty much knows everyone's business. Word sure gets around fast for sure. It stands to reason that the Sheriff in this town is much more relaxed than in many of the cozy mystery towns I read about. When the sheriff is usually telling eve [...]

      A small town, a tornado, quirky characters, a gossip grapevine with a life of its own and on an old time diner set the stage for a gruesome murder in Murder at Stake. When a local man dies during a tornado, the gossip mill goes into overdrive - probably because he was found with a wooden stake in his chest and it appears he died before the tornado hit. It's up to Mercy Howard, owner of The Old School Diner, to solve the case. Mercy may live in a small town but she has big city experience, having [...]

      There are some great lines in this book. I particularly enjoyed that the male protagonist was not an alpha male. I just don't connect to those type of guys. This guy was flawed and is carrying some baggage, but is still a likeable character. The female lead is a nice blend of kick butt and oh shoot, although was sometimes uneven in her arc.Since I am not a Southerner, I can't speak to whether it's stereotypic of small town people, but I loved the sense of place and people I know I've watched in [...]

      Mercy and her regulars first experience a destructive tornado in Paint Creek and then find a beloved member of the community dead - is his death caused by the natural disaster or by a sinister murderer? Jake and Junior have their own explanations, including government conspiracy and vampire killers. Mercy made an observation at the scene of the crime that leads her to believe the killer is a member of their own community, and the showdown occurs appropriately in the shooting gallery's version of [...]

Lots of interesting characters including a good looking Sheriff. Looking forward to the next installment.

      Poorly written and edited There were so many mistakes and inconsistencies in this. The book was written very amateurish and it flip flopped between romance and mystery. There were typos, grammatical errors and plot inconsistencies. I believe it was a $.99 book so at least I don’t feel as cheated
