Guest Post: Amy Metz - Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction

Pub Date: July 26, 2012
Publisher: Iconic Publishing LLC
Format: Paperback, 288 pages
Age Range: Adult

When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, she thinks she's moved to a quiet little burg. Curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder, and 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. 

If brains were dynamite, Willy couldn't blow his nose. Could a murderer be that stupid? Jack can charm the dew right off the honeysuckle. Surely a fine southern gentleman isn't a murderer. But Tess is determined to find out, and Goose Pimple Junction will never be the same.

A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery, which 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.

Top Ten Characters I’d Invite To Dinner
By Amy Metz

It’s easy to become wrapped up in characters’ lives and to feel you know them. Some people joke about fictional characters becoming their imaginary friends. So which ones have stayed with you long after you finish that last page? Which characters can’t you get enough of, and you’re in a state of mourning for a while after you read that last book in the series? Which ones would you love to invite to dinner? This is my top ten list:

1.    Spenser, Robert B. Parker
2.    Jesse Stone, Robert B. Parker
3.    Sunny Randall, Robert B. Parker
4.    John Corey, Nelson DeMille
5.    Virgil Flowers, John Sandford
6.    Lucas Davenport, John Sandford
7.    Kay Scarpetta, Patricia Cornwell
8.    Sam Acquillo, Chris Knopf
9.    Harry Bosch, Michael Connelly
10.    Stone Barrington, Stuart Woods

  1. Great list! I actually haven't heard of any of those but taking a look, they all do sound really great! :) I have to check all these out and thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks, Eileen. If you like mysteries, you will love these guys!

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post. I will try to get the hang of it!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! It means a lot!! Happy Reading!!
