Well written and plotted, it's a cozy mystery set in my neck of Texas. The writer does have the feel of a small Texas town down, and an interesting heroine as well. Look forward to future books in this series!

Dollycas’s Thoughts Secrets, lies, and a murder. Piney Woods is nothing like Nora Alexander ever imagined, but people thinking she killed Adam Brockwell is just plain crazy. Her mother seems to have had a past with the man, but she never mentioned the man to Nora. Why would she want him dead? Well, the plot thickens when the will is read and even the handsome police chief Tuck Watson thinks she may have done it and has told her not to leave town. To be able to stay she gets a job at the Tunie Hotel behind the desk. The owner turns out to be the chief’s aunt who hopes to renovate the place and bring it back to the glory it had not so many years ago. Nora meets several people and some secrets are revealed, but are they enough to prove her innocence? The characters are what really made this mystery shine. Nora’s mother’s deathbed wish sends her to Piney Woods where first she meets Tatty and Ed, who own a B&B. Nora quickly moves in and the three become fast friends. They never doubt her innocence for one minute. She meets Marty, a woman driven to fulfill her dreams of making the Tunie Hotel a thriving business again. Max also works at the hotel. They also believe Nora had nothing to do with the murder. Chief Tuck Watson is easy on the eyes and he is sweet on Nora from the moment they met. If they could just get this murder mess straightened out. We are introduced to several more characters, like Adam Brockwell’s son, the Reverend Alton Siddons, and a woman from the bank who handled Adam’s investments. All the characters are all unique, memorable and pretty fleshed out for the first book in the series. Ms. Trent takes these wonderful characters and swirls them together in quite a mystery. Seems not everyone thought Mr. Brockwell was a “good man”. He had secrets and enemies. This story is full of little twists and turns, but the final one just about gave me whiplash. Surprised, you bet I was. It is not a story I will soon forget. There is also a happy event at the end and Nora has a revelation I can’t wait to see play out in the next book. I loved these characters and their story so far. I am excited to see what the author has in store for them next. My next trip to Piney Woods can’t happen too soon.

First off . . . I was reeling right along with Nora about all the secrets! It was a little predictable because Nora's mom on her deathbed asks Nora to deliver a letter to a man she never told Nora about. As soon as I realized who the man was...he's age etc. I realized he was Nora's father. But the secrets don't stop there. And, I can't say more because I just can't 'spoil it'! And that is where 'predictable' ended. I promise if you a fan of a good Cozy you'll love this Cozy. You might just have a hard time figuring out 'Who Dun It'. I loved that the author set us up for a great new series! Book 1 has the makings of a great series. The characters are fun, believable, charming and welcoming. I can't wait to read more about this little town. And, to see what trouble Nora might get into down the road! I might be a tad biased because the story takes place in the Piney Woods of Texas my home state. And, the cover 'got me' because it reminded me so much of a town close to me that is so fun to visit and shop in! I am looking forward to my next visit with Nora and her friends at the Tunie Hotel! Murder of A Good Man is a 5 star keep you turning the pages read!
