“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.
A Bit About Our Guest Reviewer, Jennifer!
Jennifer, lives in Arkansas with her five children, three grand-children, and husband of 21 years. When not vivaciously reading, she can be found in her herb garden, or at one of her children’s many activities.
The seventh book in the Murder by Month series did not disappoint! If you’ve been reading from the beginning, you are already a fan of the main character, Mira. I love all the recurring characters in this series.
It took me almost to the end, but I guessed whoodunit correctly! It is so much fun uncovering all the pieces to the puzzle, and trying to guess who the killer is. The back stories for the characters are well written. And knowing why a person kills is just as important as guessing who it was.
I highly recommend this book, as well as the first six in the series. Great writing, great characters, and a great story.
