I quite life this series - quite a cozy series really. Set in a small Texan town the characters are great and its got a good sense of humour with it. Jordy Poteet is really likeable.Back Cover Blurb:Mirabeau, Texas, is a dynamite little town - especially when toolsheds, doghouses, and mailboxes mysteriously begin to explode. So far, the sole victim is local librarian Jordan Poteet, struck by a chunk of his girlfriend's mailbox. Yet Jordy gets an even bigger jolt when his ex-girlfriend, Lorna, arrives from Boston. She's come to scoop up everybody's riverfront property - and, if possible, Jordy as well.With pro-development folk and die-hard environmentalists all foaming at the mouth, tempers become downright murderous. And the unfortunate victim is Lorna's handsome colleague, garroted with a piece of barbed wire at the Mirabeau B&B.Dynamite, lust, murder....what next? Mirabeau braces for the worst and gets it - while Jordy, his true love Candace, and Police Chief Junebug Moncrief light out after a killer.....

Big bucks and murder sometimes go hand-in-hand. Mirabeau, Texas is a dynamite little town -- especially when toolsheds, doghouses, and mailboxes mysteriously begin to explode. So far, the only person physically hurt by any of this is Jordy Poteet, struck by a chunk of shrapnel from his girlfriend's mailbox. But Jordy is in for an even bigger jolt when his ex-girlfriend, Lorna, arrives from Boston. She's come to scoop up everybody's riverfront property -- and if possible, Jordy as well. With pro-development folk and die-hard environmentalists all foaming at the mouth, tempers become downright murderous. And the unfortunate victim is Lorna's handsome colleage, garroted with a piece of barbed wire at the Mirabeau B&B. It's up to Jordy to figure out if Lorna is on the up and up and to try to keep the peace with his current love, Candace, while he helps his old friend Police Cheif Junebug Moncreif track down the killer.This book was truly predictable from beginning to end. The murderer was easy to spot from the get-go. the whole plot was just tired. I'd already ordered this one from Booksfree, but I'm going to take the rest of this series off my list. I'm just not in the mood for this. I finished it, so it gets a 1. Don't waste your time on these unless you have nothing else to read but the back of the cereal box.
