Overview

Escaping the city, and her coed-chasing ex-husband, part-time journalist and full-time failed mystery writer Emily Kincaid has moved into a cozy cabin nestled in the woods of northern Michigan. Emily spends her days writing for the local newspaper and crafting her latest forgettable novel. Then one morning her quiet life turns grisly when a severed head tumbles out of her garbage can.

The victim belonged to the Women of the Moon, a group of old ladies who sing and dance around a bonfire in the woods late at night. The members claim it's just a harmless act in praise of mother earth, but certain townspeople don't see it that way. Now, one by one, the women are turning up dead.

Between hosting her ex and his female "assistant," reluctantly raising a rambunctious new puppy, and forming an uneasy alliance with the fractious Deputy Dolly, can Emily put an end to the killings — and somehow preserve her sanity?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Finding the head of a neighbor in her garbage tarnishes the peace and quiet that failed mystery writer Emily Kincaid had sought in the north Michigan woods. Emily strikes a bargain with local police representative Deputy Dolly, and the two immediately plunge into danger as they investigate a controversial local cult called Women of the Moon. Although this series launch is a bit wordy and slow in getting to the point, debut author Buzzelli is notable as one of the growing number of women writers who use female protagonists trying to make a life for themselves, such as Sue Henry.


—Jo Ann Vicarel
Kirkus Reviews
A would-be mystery writer, searching for ideas, finds a whopper in her trash bin. Who says there's nothing to do five miles outside Leetsville, Mich.? Emily Kincaid has a busy autumn morning planned: outsassing the crows, outsmarting the bears, corralling the beaver who's damming up her lake and working out the kinks in her mystery plot. But first she has to retrieve her trash can, which turns out to have a severed head inside of it. It belongs to one of the four Women of the Moon, little old ladies who cavort like superannuated Girl Scouts in the woods, singing, dancing and carousing. Then a severed arm lands on Emily's porch. Could things get worse? Well, yes. Emily's ex, the philandering Jackson, visits with his newest conquest, long-limbed Jennifer. Deputy Dolly Wakowski steps in to agitate Emily's life further by calling on her detective skills. When two more Women of the Moon die, one by strangulation and the other by arson, Dolly and Emily first suspect the pastor of the Church of the Contented Flock, then a married pair of survivalists, then the grown-up children of the deceased and finally Emily's skunk-skinning backwoods neighbor. They become targets but extricate themselves from murder so that Emily can return to her mystery writing. Every woman who's ever struggled with saying no, fitting in and balancing independence against loneliness will adore first-timer Emily-not to mention the eccentrics congregating at EATS restaurant and the cutest puppy in the genre.

    NOOK copy screwed up

    I ordered this book for my NOOK, and unfortunately I have not been able to read it yet because the copy I got is completely screwed up. I have repeatedly emailed NOOK support, but the only "support" I have gotten from them is things I have already tried, such as archiving and unarchiving, with no resolution in my problem whatsoever. Of course, despite the fact that it is not my software or device, I have been repeatedly told I was the one that screwed up. I did have one favorable response from customer service stating that the person had contacted the people responsible for the formatting of the book and the problem would be fixed in one to two weeks - that was more than a month ago, so I am assuming that was just a lie to shut me up. Of course, being a NOOK book, I cannot get a refund. I have read other books in this series and loved them, so I am assuming this one will be good too. If you want to read this book I highly recommend you buy the actual book and not the NOOK version unless you just want to waste $8.99.
