I enjoyed the crime-solving aspect of Muffin Man, yet the story is really more character-driven than it is a pure whodunit. John's mental and emotional struggles in dealing with relationships past and present drew me in, and once I got a few chapters into the book, I did not want to put it down. I enjoy this author's turns-of-phrase and the word pictures he draws of this Texan town and its surroundings. Some of the characters are more richly drawn than others, but I think this worked well, since the story is told entirely through the eyes of a man who, although a hard-working, honest, intelligent sheriff, is not always deeply perceptive about the inner workings of people. Being careful not to give spoilers, I will say that I found the resolutions to both of his major conflicts (and those connected indirectly) to be satisfying. John's life is not neatly wrapped up, but this is partly what makes the story seem so real. I can see myself picking this up to read again.

Not as funny as his 'Fred' books, but then this book is not meant to be like them. I do not think you would be disappointed in reading Muffin Man. It does take on some deeply emotional topics that some families face. In doing so, the approach was well balanced and lighthearted when it needed to be.
