I found this book on nook and it sounded like a good mystery. I was right but there is so much more to this book than a mystery. This is the first Garrison Gage mysteries. The second book is A Desperate Place For Dying. The third is The Lovely Wicked Rain.
The author, Scott Willard Carter, gives you real characters to care about and cheer for. I had some laugh out loud moments with a minor character Agnes, some teary moments with a secondary character Mattie, and charmed by the crockety main character Gage.
I sat down Sunday afternoon with this book and I finished it about 10:40 pm that night. Its nice sized read but I am looking forward to the next story. If you are a mystery fan I whole heartedly recomend this book.
