Overview

Finalist for The Lefty Award for best humorous mystery!
Chosen as a Killer Book by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association!


What's so wrong with admiring from a distance? After all, Mira's quirky attraction to Chief Wenonga, a well-muscled fiberglass statue, might be a safer love pursuit than online dating. But when the 23-foot Chief goes missing and a human scalp is discovered at his cement base, Mira's not the only Battle Lake citizen to be crushed.

Things get impossibly worse when her second-biggest-hunk, organic gardening god Johnny Leeson, disappears and the police think she's involved. With her luck with men running out and the cops closing in, Mira has no choice but to roll up her sleeves and start investigating.

But is she trailing a statue-thief, a kidnapper, or a cold-blooded killer?

Knee High by the Fourth of July 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!

Knee High by the Fourth of July is the third in an ongoing series featuring Mira James, an urban woman with rural Minnesota roots. The books can be read in any order; each novel stands alone. Get all the Mira James mysteries today!
