    Another Wonderful Mystery by Houston

    Paul ¿Doc¿ Osborne should have remembered that no good deed goes unpunished. So when he agrees to help his friend Ray Pradt lead a ¿Fishing for Girls¿ fishing seminar Doc should have expected the worse. When one of the student¿s mother, a famous syndicated advice columnist, is found murdered, Doc is once again deputized and asked by the Loon Lake Chief of Police to help out with his forensic dental skills. Ray complicates matters as he begins to fall for one of his very married students who has a tragic past of her own, and soon Doc is up to his neck in murder and family secrets. Chief Ferris herself has her hands full with her run for Lake County Sheriff, a counterfeit money scam, and a cold case murder. Readers will be taken along as events roll along quickly to a very tidy and satisfying end. This continues to be a strong series with no hint of letting up. Houston has created characters who continue to grow and readers will be thrilled with the evolution of Doc¿s romance with the lovely sheriff. Dead Jitterbug is an extremely entertaining mystery full of humor, fishing lore, wit, and suspense.

    a humorous well written mystery

    The title caught my eye: I found the book humorous as well as interesting as a mystery. Since I love to fish, live in central WI. I really enjoyed reading this book and plan on buying more of her WI. stories.
