Rattling the Heat in Deadwood by Ann Charles, C.S. Kunkle

A scrappy, hot-blooded woman can only take so much!

Violet Parker is on fire ... or rather under fire yet again.

New evidence has fanned the embers of a cold murder case, and her alibi is smoldering at the corners. While battling a dogged detective determined to pin the murder on her, Violet scrambles to find the real killer.

Will she escape "the heat" with singed tail feathers? Or will Violet go down in flames?

WOW!! I don't know how Ann Charles manages it, but every single book in this series just gets better and better!! Our favorite Scharfricter is in over her favorite purple boots in trouble, and the rest of the gang is busting their butts trying to help her out! The characters, are just amazing! They are like old friends now, and I can not wait to revisit them again! This book is impossible to put down, and features hilarious angst, a crazy family dinner and everyones favorite detective shows us a little more of himself. If you want humor, supernatural craziness and some serious steam, this is the book for you!

That's what Detective Hawke believes. He is out to prove Violet is guilty of murdering MS. Wolf. Now clocks are missing and He said Violet the witch is stealing them. Doc, Natalie, Coop, old man Harvey, and Aunt Zoe are trying to help Violet stay out of jail. Of course nothing is normal when Ms. Wolf and Mr. Black are around with their hellish consequences. Ann has written another interesting and funny book. Can't wait for the next one. joy943

Ann Charles keeps nailing them. What another fantastic story. Always a page turner. Whenever I pick up one of Ann Charles's books I know I'm in for a ride that is well worth it. Love her stuff.

As always I loved this book! I haven’t read anything that Ann has written that I didn’t love. I love ghosts and paranormal and she does it so well. I’m a big fan of Cooper the big bad cop and was really happy with him here.

I love, love, love Violet Parker's adventures and the deepening mystery behind her family business. I can't pick a favorite character, though I did enjoy the more in depth look at Detective Cooper and his deepening relationships with Violet, Doc, and Natalie. I highly recommend all of Ann Charles' books, but Deadwood is by far the best! #RattlingtheHeat

Action, mayhem, humor and a past murder keep this story moving and flowing well. Ann Charles writes in her own style and keeps a person guessing what will happen next.

I absolutely love this book. It's one of those stories that you become so engrossed in the lives of the characters that when it's over you find yourself wondering what they are doing now. Violets life is extremely difficult and busy yet she stays strong and loveable. She has some amazing friends and family that help her with all of the twists and turns of her life. She also has my absolute favorite relationship with Doc. I love him, I hope I can one day find a man like him for me. There is a lot of suspense in this book that keeps you going back for more. I can't wait for the next book in this series or really any book by Ann, she is amazing! I highly recommend this or any other book by her.

Another wild ride in Deadwood!! Ann Charles has done it again, keeping me in suspense, laughing, biting my nails, and wanting to kick Hawke. I highly recommend the Deadwood Series. Ann has a way of bringing her characters to life that makes you want to be right there with them. Join Violet, Doc, Harvey, Coop, and the gang for some hair raising times. I can't wait until the next book!!

Purchased last night finished this morning.? only put it down for necessities. We all know what those are. The action was fast paced. The dialogue between characters was snappy and clever. The heat between Doc and Violet, enviable. The tension between Nat and Coop, palpable. This book, like all in the Deadwood Universe, is excellent. I'm going to read it again tonight. It's like visiting VERY unusual and talented friends.

The fun and action never stops in Deadwood when Violet is around! Rattling the Heat in Deadwood has got to be my favorite in the series so far! It is filled with so much fun that will have you holding your stomach from laughing so hard. The things that poor Violet gets herself wrapped up in is enough to make a grown person drink…Oh wait! Anybody up for a shot of tequila? Yes, Violet’s choice will definitely help calm her down but I’m not sure about Doc or poor Cooper lol. Ahhh poor good looking Coop who definitely has his hands full with the Violet in this addition to the series. This is one series that you can be sure of being entertained, have laughs a minute, see into the romance of Doc and Violet and follow along with a mystery that unfolds with more answers to so many questions that I have had while reading the previous books. Oh Ann Charles definitely has delivered another phenomenal story to us. This author sure does know how to write a bang up book that keeps us coming back for more! Please don’t hesitate to read this amazing series. You won’t be sorry…really!

If you are a fan of the Deadwood series from Ann Charles, this one will not disappoint! Humor...mystery, it's all in there. If you aren't familiar with the series, better catch up. It'll be worth your time. Hope she keeps 'em coming.

Rattling the Heat in Deadwood is Ann Charles' eighth book in this amazingly funny, sexy paranormal mystery series and she really does turn up the heat in this one! With Ann's sharp wit and talent for story telling, once again Violet's Deadwood springs to life across each page as the tensions and bodies pile up around her. The heat is on and Violet will need all her friends, and of course Doc, to see her though this time! This is a series that I hope never ends!
