Red state. Red blooded. Ready for trouble.
Brett Sargent isn't adapting to life in Arkansas very well. A native New Yorker, she's whisked away to Little Falls in the Witness Protection Program after testifying against her former high school lab partner, now a Mafia up-and-comer. Her only friend is a happy-go-lucky guard dog named Dude.
While moonlighting as a detective to pay the rent, Brett is hired by Elaine Scrubbs and her smokin’ hot redneck brother, Jake. They ask her to find Elaine’s missing husband. But when Hank Scrubbs turns up dead with a Mafia calling card stabbed to his chest, Brett knows she's next on their hit list.
To stay alive, Brett tangles with a liar, a truck driver, a flesh-eating Mafia lawyer, a one-eyed repairman, a shotgun-wielding racist, a vindictive Kroger clerk, a Bible thumper, and a shoplifter named Rick James who just might be the best friend she's been waiting for.
A fast-paced comic mystery, I Never Arkansas It Coming takes one private investigator for the ride of her life in a place she never wanted to call home.

I loved the humor and clever dialogue, and look forward to reading more by this author
Growing up in small-town Arkansas, this one really hit home! From the ''gunracks'' in trucks remark to the ''rotting doublewides'', I was convinced this author was raised in Arkansas! So i was very surprised to learn she only lived in Arkansas' biggest city for a few years! She had to have taken some small-town road trips while living here! Thanks for the laughs! Loved it!
I had a hard time reading this book mostly because I was laughing so much (I have relatives in Arkansas) and the play on word places was just too much! I kept getting out my map to check the action of the story. Evokes Janet Evanovich style, tough but self made chick who has a heart. Bloody? maybe. hilarious. you betcher armadillo!
