    Lot of fun

    I do not like dark or graphic murder mysteries and this is not one. The sheriff does need to solve a murder mystery but it is fun to read. I like the dialogue and have really gotten to enjoy the company of the main characters.

    For a fun read + a little adventure, read this!

    So fun to read! My husband and I have long enjoyed Patrick McManus' books, and were delighted to find this new series. They are true mystery stories that look for and gather clues, etc., interspersed with gut busting hilarity as only Patrick McManus can write it.
    We recommend grabbing any of the Bo Tully stories and getting cozy for an easy going, enjoyable ride with Bo, Pap, Dave the Indian and a multitude of colorful miscreants!

    How can you not love McManus!!

    If you loved James Garner and the Support Your Local Sheriff or Support Your Local Gunfighter type stories... then you will LOVE the Bo Tully Series by Patrick F. McManus. Read The Blight Way First to really understand the characters!

    A reviewer

    In Blight County, Idaho, Blanche Wilson calls the Sheriff¿s Department to report her spouse Mike is missing. Sheriff Bo Tully sees the investigation as an opportunity for him and his team (the previous sheriff his dad Pap and Dave the tracker) to take advantage of the upscale facilities at the West Branch Lodge, owned by the Wilsons.--------------- However fantasies of hot tubs vanish as fast as an avalanche traps the father and son detecting team. The Tullys manage to get to the lodge where they find a horde of outsiders vacationing at the exclusive spot and a few locals including his dog sledding former girlfriend Janice. As they investigate in between hot tub soaks, they find the corpse of Mike and Bo¿s deputies inform him that Horace Baker, Wilsons¿ business partner, was murdered. The only motive to surface is Blanche has a multimillion dollar insurance policy on the two victims, but Tully and Pap think that is too obvious.------------- The latest Bo Tully Idaho police procedural (see THE BLIGHT WAY) is a terrific tale not because of the investigation, which lies behind the last sled dog, but due to the loving teasing between Tully and Pap, and Tully and Janice (as well as a few other females the hero meets during his hot soaks). The case is well written though straightforward, but it is the younger Tully¿s eccentric relationships that make for a fun whodunit.--------- Harriet Klausner

    A good mystery

    Blight County, Idaho resident Blanche Wilson reports her spouse Mike is missing. After obtaining information from Blanche, co-owner of the Branch Lodge with her husband, Sheriff Bo Tully obtains the assistance of his father retired sheriff Pap and their tracker friend Dave to go into the nearby mountains to find Mike, but first plan a couple days asking questions while relaxing at the affluent wilderness lodge.-------------- However, their trek proves dangerous when the father and son team barely survives an avalanche. Disturbed by the rockslide mostly because he does not trust coincidence the trio finds Mike¿s corpse, which turns the missing person investigation into a homicide case. They soon learn that Blanche has multimillion reasons to see Mike dead.------------------- The second Blight Country police procedural (see THE BLIGHT WAY) is lighthearted fun as the hero sees a chance for a free soak in a hot tub while reading Danielle Steele¿s newest tale. However, the suspicious occurring avalanche changes his R&R concept as he and his companions believe someone wanted them dead. The whodunit is enjoyable though somewhat straightforward, but takes a back seat to the camaraderie between father and son.---------------- Harriet Klausner
