    Reluctant police chief, Gordon Hepler isn't sure how to proceed

    Reluctant police chief, Gordon Hepler isn't sure how to proceed when some neighborhood dogs uncover long-buried human bones. The quiet little town of Mapleton doesn't get a lot of call for high-level police activity, and the mayor doesn't want to waste money and resources on an obviously cold case without so much as a missing person to point them in the right direction.

    Terry Odell does a nice job layering Gordon's tenacity to solve the mystery of the bones without the approval of his boss with the clues that ultimately lead him to solve the case.

    Terry Odell's Deadly Bones is a carefully plotted cozy mystery novel with an engaging hero and convincing secondary characters. I enjoyed the book a lot more than I expected to, given that my taste usually runs more to the hard-boiled genre. Despite the author's discussions of sex in the shower on Facebook, all of the characters in this novel behave properly at all times, so this book is appropriate for all ages from teen to Granny. The forensic aspects are well researched, and the whodunit, and perhaps more importantly the whydunit, keep you guessing for a large percentage of the total novel. The pace is good, accelerating nicely as we come to the finale. Recommended, no reservations. Buy a copy and enjoy the story.

    Police chief Gordon Hepler has his hands full when a dog unearths a human bone, and the mayor wants him to hand out more speeding tickets. But a person is dead, their family needs closure, and Gorden needs to solve the case. More bones are found, more interference rains down from on high, and Gordon's personal life takes a big hit. A rash of nuisance crimes and injury to community members puts Gordon on full alert. Something's rotten in his town, and by George, he's going to stamp it out.

    Odell's cozy/police procedural kept my interest from start to finish. Those cinnamon rolls seemed so real I could taste them. Recommended for mystery lovers.

    Wonderful small town cozy mystery starring the police chief and a baker. Starts out slowly, developing the characters and puzzling over buried bones, but before long, it takes off and rolls into a page turner. Intelligent, well-plotted, great characters, excellent mystery.
