Overview

Bubba Snoddy is a good old country boy with a big problem. Although he's personable, handsome, and lives in a historical Southern mansion in a small Texas town, he has just discovered the dead body of a woman to whom he was once engaged to marry. His ex-fiancée was responsible for Bubba being thrown out of the military which in turn caused his shameful return to the tiny town of Pegramville, where everyone is a consummate gossip and no one has any secrets. Sheriff John Headrick believes Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. The townsfolk believe that Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. Bubba's own mother believes that Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. To top it all off, there are some mighty strange goings-on at the Snoddy Mansion, where ghosts walk the halls rattling chains in the midnight hour, and Bubba's own sainted mother, Miz Demetrice, runs an illegal gambling ring. Rumors run merrily rampant about Bubba, decadent Snoddy ancestors, missing Civil War gold, a to-die-for sheriff's deputy with the greenest eyes Bubba's ever seen, and a Basset Hound named Precious who likes to nip first and ask questions later. Bubba has to find out exactly who did murder his ex-fiancée and quickly before he goes to jail for the crime, or before someone murders him.

    A small southern town, ghosts and murder have never been this much fun!

    I think I grew up here. I know all of these people. Every small southern town has it's characters, secrets and the gossip. This book was so much fun. Don't miss this one!

    Great, fun read.

    I enjoyed this book a lot. The first few pages seemed a little slow, but then it took off and kept my attention. It was funny and had great characters.

    I enjoyed this

    I saw a lot of reviews that complained of poor editing, but it's a FREE book and if you can get passed a few misspellings it's a fun read!!!

    First book I read on my new nook

    My wife bought me a Nook Color for christmas. The first book I have completed already is this book. I could not put this story down. This story is a great redneck slapstick\murder mystery. I love the characters and for those who live in a small town can relate. Some choice words I did not like. Derek D

    Probably a good book, but needs heavy editing

    I couldn't make it past the first 100 pages. The pacing tripped over itself. This is a terrific premise ruined due to lack of proper editing. It needs someone with an eye for brevity to step in. I'd like to read this after that happens. The author wove a surprisingly fun tale.

    Decent Read, for the most part

    I'm not sure whether they're typos or grammatical errors on the part of the author, but the editing could be better. Still, the book was entertaining, and I enjoyed it.

    Free is the right price

    I like mystery; I like humor; I like quirky characters. I didn't like this. The story gets bogged down in long-winded descriptions of characters and in sentences I had to read twice to figure out. The book needed another session with the editor, who might have tightened the prose and fixed homophones and punctuation. I'm sorry, Bubba: you seem like a nice guy, but we're just not meant for each other.

    Great plot but....

    Great plot but I almost put the book down because of the editing issues. I like the writing style but the lack of good editing made it hard to read.

    Funny at times, but uneven and poorly written.

    The story is actually not so bad, and parts of this are actually pretty funny. The writing itself is distractingly bad, however. I'm a high school teacher, and this honestly reminds me of student work. If you feel you can look past the amatuerish prose, then you might enjoy this. But it's baaaad...

    Love it

    I love how the author depicts bubba. Most country men are very much like him. Southerners are always being pretrayed as dumb rednecks it's nice to see a change. Can't wait to read more of this series :)

    Funny Read

    For a free book, it was a cute story. Yes, it has bad grammar and misspelled words, but I am finding out that all of the free books have those two problems. I laughed several times out loud. I have read several of C.L. Bevill's books. Read it -- what will you have to lose? I bet you end up saying several times: "Poor Bubba."

    Fun Read - Good vacation read

    This is a story with fun southern characters, plot twists and outlandish, over the top descriptions. Any story that takes you into a mind of a dog makes you smile. I will always remember this as my first Nook book. Yes, I would read another Bubba story.

    Good

    Interesting. Unlike the grammar nazis here complaining about bad grammar, there was none. I think, however, they found the manner of southern speaking and took offense and found it offensive. Bubba was a good ole boy and his mama was a hoot!

    Bubba Is No "Bubba"

    Not exactly a nail biter for suspense, but Bubba is a real fun story as well as a real fun character. Actually, there are a bunch of real fun characters in this book, and I did have trouble putting the book down to go to sleep. While Bubba may be his name, he certainly is no ?Bubba? when it comes to the smarts department. He may get blind sided a bit too frequently, but he does not give up, keeps pushing forward, and does put it all together. I will look forward to future Bubba stories. Best wishes, Dave Wile.

    Crazy Funny!!!!!

    I couldn't put this book down. Living in East Texas, I felt like I knew each of these characters. It was funny and kept me laughing. I felt myself cheering for Bubba and feeling a little dejected everytime something else went wrong for him. I can't wait to see what Bubba gets into next.
