MOONLIGHTING IN VERMONT:
Sometimes a girl just has to get dirty

TROUBLE FOLLOWS SOME WOMEN…
Bella Bree MacGowan is your average country girl. She works two jobs to support her farm and the menagerie of stray animals that accumulate there; she’s almost always covered in mud; and everyone in her small town of South Royalton, Vermont, feels free to comment on everything from her love life ("That Jim just isn't right for you!") to her expired inspection sticker ("Better get that car looked at!"). Is there any such thing as privacy anymore?
… BUT IT FELL IN LOVE WITH BREE MACGOWAN.
When Bree finds a dead body at the five-star resort where she moonlights as a maid, her life careens out of control. Her lawyer boyfriend, Jim, dumps her; the surly and sensual investigating officer, Lieutenant Miles Brooks, keeps giving her the beady eyeball; and a reporter at the paper where she works names Bree as the primary suspect in the murder! Can your average hard-working country girl prove her innocence, rein in a love life gone wild, and maintain her sanity all at the same time?

Moonlighting in Vermont is a superbly written, romantic mystery with just a hint of comedy, by Kate George. Winner of the Daphne du Maurier award for excellence in the Mystery/Suspense category, Kate George shows us what truly incredible writing can achieve. The storyline was so absorbing; it was hard to put this one down! Bella Bree MacGowan, paste-up artist by day, housekeeper by night, describes herself as a Rachel Ray look-a-like "without the benefit of a hair and makeup stylist." George's heroine is a fictional treasure that is strong-willed, self sufficient, and not easily derailed! The backwoods town of South Royalton, Vermont is typically a quiet venue where not much happens; a place where the rich and famous have been known to frequent to get away from it all, certainly not a place for murder? When Bree is assigned to clean one of the cottages at Whispering Birches, a super-luxury hotel, she finds her boss dead on the floor. Bree quickly becomes the prime and only suspect as Detective Miles Brooks does everything in his power to point all clues toward Bree. In the weeks that follow the murder, Bree manages to lose her boyfriend and her daytime job at the Royalton Star. She becomes the subject of much gossip in town and is even accosted at Vera's funeral! With nowhere else to turn, Bree scrambles to dig up clues, and carries out her own investigation in order to clear her name and avoid the fate that awaits her. George's characters are both interesting and compelling because each struggles with difficult conflict. Can't wait for California Schemin'. I highly recommend this book for it's original plotline, well thoughtout characters, and romantic flair with just a hint of comedy! A great book to curl up to on a rainy day!

I read the second book first and then bought this one. Both are fantastic. I wish I could nook the third one as well. Alas, it is not available for nook. Will have to order it!

Very good book, started California Schemin which was good from the beginning. Some references in that book made me wonder if there was another book that I should be reading first. Found out that this one was it so, I stopped reading that one and started this one. I really enjoyed Bree and the uncanny way that trouble just seems to find her...now to pick up where I left off with California Schemin...I'm sure it will be just as good!
