"It's not easy to make people laugh while they're on the edge of their seats, but Lourey pulls it off...[A] very clever series."—Booklist, (starred review)
November in Battle Lake, Minnesota, is cold enough to freeze the balls off a pool table. lt's also deer hunting season. When Tom Kicker is killed in a hunting accident, Mira James is hired to investigate—a job that brings her closer to her P.I. license.
Braving subzero temps and shrieking blizzards, Mira uncovers a decades-old scandal that has never quite died, unlike the cold stiffs who are piling up in the town morgue. As she pieces together the clues, Mira discovers that Battle Lake's good-old boys have been up to some bad business.
But with threats and enemies around every icy corner, she may not live long enough to expose the truth.
November Hunt is perfect for readers who love to escape into the humorous mysteries of Sarah Strohmeyer, Janet Evanovich, Denise Grover Swank, Margaret Lashley, Amy Vansant, Carl Hiaasen, Chelsea Field, and Stephanie Bond. If you love to laugh while reading a twisty, turny mystery, then this series is for you!
