Overview

A cow suicide, a revolving door rescue, and the birth of a bright purple pig are starting to make Kate Saxee wonder if taking a job in her small hometown of Branson Falls, Utah, was such a great idea. As The Branson Tribune editor, Kate covers local news, which, more often than not, involves her accident-prone mom. Nothing truly newsworthy has ever happened in the quiet town until local teen Chelsea Bradford turns up dead in a Branson Falls lake.

The police rule Chelsea's death an accident, but Kate suspects there's more to the story--and she's not the only one. Two of Branson's most eligible bachelors are determined to help her solve the crime--among other things. But the small town social network is faster than Twitter, and gossip about Kate's love-life is quickly branding her the Branson Falls hussy.

As Kate learns more about Chelsea, she discovers that plenty of people are trying to cover up the real story behind the girl's death--including Chelsea's parents. Now Kate has to juggle work, men, her mom's most recent disaster involving a low-speed John Deere Combine chase on the freeway, and fend off the Mormons heaven-bent on saving her soul--all while solving Chelsea's murder. Dealing with this is going to require a lot of coffee, chocolate frosted donuts, Neil Diamond's greatest hits, and a slew of words not on the town approved imitation swear list.

What a refreshing book!! This author has such a great sense of humor. This book has a lot of sexual notions without any real sex, sometimes less is more. I'm looking for more from this author. There's also a good mystery here.
