Goose Pimple Junction Review

Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction
by Amy Metz
Genre: Cozy Mystery

Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction:
When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder. Suddenly she’s learning the foreign language of southern speak, resisting her attraction to local celebrity Jackson Wright, and dealing with more mayhem than she can handle. 

A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery that Tess attempts to solve. As she gets close to the truth, she encounters danger, mystery, a lot of southern charm, and a new temptation for which she’s not sure she’s ready. 


4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting TaleJanuary 28, 2015
This review is from: Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction (Goose Pimple Junction Mysteries Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
"I swan, raising kids is like being pecked to death by a chicken."
Each chapter starts with some witty 'Southern Fried' quote. Though at times the Southern speak got on my nerves, it was sweet of everyone to translate for Tess and the readers! The characters in this book are so full of personality. The story pulls you into town and the story and you're immersed in this Southern town.
The story flashes between 1935 where there was a bank robbery and murders, to the present. Being a small town, mostly all the same families still live in town. This is a twisting tale that has you guessing until the end. This is one of those nice long books. It's not over quick and it's not too long. It's nice to lose yourself for a few days in Goose Pimple Junction.
"She was so ugly when she was born, her mama used to borrow a baby to take to church on Sunday." The characters will have you giggling and scratching your head trying to help solve this 80 year old mystery. Well worth the read.

Heroes & Hooligans in Goose Pimple Junction

Goose Pimple Junction is just recovering from a kidnapping and a murder, its first major crimes in years, when trouble begins anew. Life is turned upside down in the quirky little Southern town with the arrival of several shifty hooligans: A philandering husband intent on getting his wife back, another murderer loose in town, a stalker intent on frightening Martha Maye, and a thief who’s stealing the town blind of their pumpkins, pies, and peace. Together, they’re scaring the living daylights out of the residents and keeping the new police chief busier than a set of jumper cables at a redneck picnic. Suddenly, he has his hands full trying to apprehend a killer, stop a stalker, and fight his feelings for the damsel in distress. 

5.0 out of 5 stars witty and funJanuary 31, 2015

I found this book much more interesting than the first. I feel like it didn't drag on as much. It moved along greatly. My interest was held. The same witty Southern speak was in this book and I've come to find it endearing (and may have even caught myself saying some of the phrases to my friends!). It was nice seeing characters from the first book.
"I've had a taste of freedom, and let me tell you, Leonard Skynyrd, it tastes mighty good." Awesome quotes begin each chapter and some of the conversations will have you cracking up out loud.
"I'm so old I owe Jesus a nickel, and I know a thing or two."
I loved Lou in the first book. Seeing her and Martha Maye more was great. There's more than 1 mystery going on here and you're going to be held captivated by this book! It's well worth a read.
The song names will have you snorting and laughing. i.e- I Can't Be Number One In Your Life, Then Number Two On You.
I can't wait for more!
