At last, an intelligently written, well edited introductory e-book. I had just about decided not to waste any more time on the first timers sophmoric attempts at character development and plots . I anticipate learning more about these characters as they develop in future books. As someone else wrote I seldom give a 5, but this is a very good first offering in light, clean, mystery fiction.

The book cover may look bland but the story was very entertaining. I bought the next 2 books in the Ana Raven series. ( Rarely do I give a book 5 stars.)

This is a really good cozy mystery. You kind of just fall into An as rythym in this book. A small town, an old mystery and new murders. A cozy doesn't get much better.

This book is about 300 pages long. It is nicely edited. The langauge is clean. It is not graphic on the blood and gore. There is some sexual inuendo. The heroine is a divorcee, learning to stand on her own two feet. She is remodeling her newly purchased home and comes across a mystery. This book is filled with quirky people, a few snobs, a few hunks and the dispicable. It is geared more to women. A throughly entertaining read. AD

When I saw the opportunity to read and review a mystery from Tempting Book Tours, I decided to step out of my box and go for it. Normally, I stick to paranormal and/or YA, but I do enjoy a good mystery and News from Dead Mule Swamp looked really good, especially for someone who is involved with a newspaper in a small town. Cherry Hill is a small town where everyone knows each other's business. Sounds a lot like my own small town, so I was drawn in by the setting. Ana is the newcomer to town after having divorced her husband. She bought a house that is over 100 years old and needed a lot of updating, so she is doing it herself. While tearing out the old walls, Ana finds a newspaper, but before she gets a chance to look at it, the paper disappears from her house and the only person who was in her house turns up dead of what looks like a suicide down the road from her house.. What was so important that someone would want that paper? Ana makes it her mission to figure it out. While trying to figure out the mystery of the paper, Ana gets to know more about the town's history. The way the story is woven together really draws you in and it makes you want to know more. I can see Cherry Hill being anywhere, east coast, west coast, north or south. The characters are well written and developed, the story is inviting and I can't wait to keep reading more of Ana's adventures living by the Swamp.

Ana gets caught up in a mystery of what happens to her neighbor. She gets to meet many new people. It is hard to know who can be trusted. How many people are involved? Good ending.
