Overview

No one’s perfect.

At least that’s what Lucy Mathews tells herself. Except faced with her boyfriend’s rodeo queen ex-wife and perfectly trained Australian shepherd, she has to wonder if maybe this whole ‘no one’s perfect’ thing was made up by someone like...Lucy.
Lucky for Lucy though, things are hopping around Helena. It’s rodeo season, and she has a booth. It’s a great opportunity to expand her clientele and maybe even snag a cash prize for Kiska as the world’s first sheep herding malamute.

Except Kiska can’t herd, Lucy loses her wallet, and oh yeah...there’s that dead rodeo queen Lucy just stumbled over.

Good thing her boyfriend’s a detective. Except that’s not going so well either. A new detective is in town, and he’s convinced Lucy’s involved in the rodeo queen’s murder. Her boyfriend is no help at all and worse he’s spending a little too much time with his ex-wife.

Lucy finds herself out of money, out of love, and maybe this time, out of luck.

Cut Loose is the second book in the Dusty Deals Mystery series. Look for the first book, Loose Screw, also available for Nook.

    Fun!

    The second book in this series was much much better than the first. The author seems to have found her "writing self" and the story flows much better. Those new to the series, I'd start with the first book. Please know it gets better the further you read. Like I said the second is much better. The predicaments Lucy and her dog get into are hilarious. Have fun!

    I love Dusty Deals

    I enjoyed this book as much as I did the the first one. It is a great series, so far. I hope there are many more books, as I fear I am now addicted to the characters and their predictiments. A little over 450 pages, each page almost seemed like a gift. I bought another book by this author, more of a romance then these two are, while it was a very good also, I prefer a mystery. This book would be a good read for ages 13 and up. I highly recommend these books.

    Diane Enjoyed immensely

    Even though I rolled my eyes a few times at Lucy's bone headed antics. Especially enjoyed Phyllis, Rhona's boyfriend's mother - she was a truthful hoot. Hope she keeps working at the shop.

    Better plot than the 1st

    I thought this had a better plot than the 1st dusty deals book but the mystery was fairly easy to solve (for the reader not for the characters). I still enjoy this authors writing syle and sense of humor. My only complaint was that it ended rather abruptly.

    Heroine too stupid to even tolerate...

    I am not by any means very critical of books that are produced as an easy read that are simply entertaining. This book however was so irritating to me, that I could not even finish it. The main character is simply put, stupid. I think the writing is intended to be funny, but I did not find it so. I would suggest you read the sample book first if you are considering purchasing this book....I wish I had done this instead of wasting my money.
