Bones To Pick
by Linda Lovely
on Tour October 16 - December 16, 2017
Living on a farm with four hundred goats and a cantankerous carnivore isn’t among vegan chef Brie Hooker’s list of lifetime ambitions. But she can’t walk away from her Aunt Eva, who needs help operating her dairy.
Once she calls her aunt’s goat farm home, grisly discoveries offer ample inducements for Brie to employ her entire vocabulary of cheese-and-meat curses. The troubles begin when the farm’s pot-bellied pig unearths the skull of Eva’s husband, who disappeared years back. The sheriff, kin to the deceased, sets out to pin the murder on Eva. He doesn’t reckon on Brie’s resolve to prove her aunt’s innocence. Death threats, ruinous pedicures, psychic shenanigans, and biker bar fisticuffs won’t stop Brie from unmasking the killer, even when romantic befuddlement throws her a curve.

Cozy mystery fans might enjoy this book. The storyline was fine. I read the first half of the story with no problems. However, I started to find myself getting bogged down; not by lengthy details but mainly due to minimal excitement and the characters. Speaking of the characters, I wanted to really love them but found them to be more casual acquaintances. I could not really find my footing with them, although Brie, her Aunt Eva, and the rest of the folks were a bit whimsical.
When it came to solving the mystery behind Eva's husband, it seemed that there were many opinions. Some were plausible and others not so believable. Yet, it was interesting to see all of the did angles. Again, I would have enjoyed it more if the story had more action and not so much talking amongst the characters. Hopefully, the characters and the next story get stronger.
Read an excerpt:
Over the past five years, hundreds of mystery/thriller writers have met Linda Lovely at check-in for the annual Writers’ Police Academy, which she helps organize. Lovely finds writing pure fiction isn’t a huge stretch given the years she’s spent penning PR and ad copy. She writes a blend of mystery and humor, chuckling as she plots to “disappear” the types of characters who most annoy her. Quite satisfying plus there’s no need to pester relatives for bail. Her newest series offers good-natured salutes to both her vegan family doctor and her cheese-addicted kin. She served as president of her local Sisters in Crime chapter for five years and belongs to International Thriller Writers and Romance Writers of America.
