Overview

June Bug by Jess Lourey

Diamonds, dives, and dead bodies...oh my!

Mira James never imagined life after Minneapolis would be a doublewide trailer outside Battle Lake, Minnesota. Then again, maybe the North Country has more to offer than mosquitoes and broasted chicken. Maybe it has earthy, sexy Johnny Leeson and... jewels?

Local legend claims that a diamond necklace was lost nearly a century ago in Whiskey Lake, near the bank of the present-day Shangri-La resort. Mira, a part-time reporter, goes fishing for the story behind the legend. Her exhilarating treasure hunt uncovers a new mystery and puts her face to face with a menacing foe from her past.

Can she avoid his deadly advances long enough to lock lips with Johnny?

June Bug is a laugh-out-loud romantic comic caper mystery, perfect for readers who enjoy the humorous mysteries of Liliana Hart, Chelsea Field, Gina LaManna, Janet Evanovich, Denise Grover Swank, Amy Vansant, and Stephanie Bond. If you love to belly-laugh while reading a page-turning mystery, this series is for you!

June Bug is the second in an ongoing series featuring Mira James, an urban woman with rural Minnesota roots. The books do not need to be read in order; each novel stands alone. Get all the Mira James mysteries today!

LOTS of lusty remarks, which I think we could have done without, but no actual explicit sex. Mira is house-sitting for a friend, in the backwoods of MN. She stumbles upon a decades-old mystery, which as part-time newspaper reporter, she just HAS to figure out. Back in the 20's a lot a jewelry disappeared from the, then, Shangri-la resort. As Mira stumbles around, getting banged up, by June Bugs and abusive acquaintances, she gets closer & closer to the "treasure". As an aside, she has the "hots" for one of the garden center men, which causes her to be a blubbering, bumbling idiot. This is a fun book, but as I said, it could do without a lot of the sexual references.

The author rambles on giving too much detail to the point of making it hard to finish the book. A long 180 pages of TMI on everything, dragging out the story. Would have been just as good, actually even better, without all the descriptive filler. If her books ramble on like this one, I will put the next one down and not suffer through the "fluff" to finish. Glad it was free. JBH
