Review - Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz

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. 



Tess Tremaine, newly divorced after 26 years of marriage, moves to a lovely community - Goose Pimple Junction, to start life over.  Tess quickly learns the people of Goose Pimple Junction are friendly and she takes to the area and the slower paced life with relish. She loves the simplicity of small town life.  A writer, with one book published, Tess meets, of all things, another writer - Jackson (Jack) Wright. He is as handsome as she is beautiful. She is determined, however, never to get tied up in another relationship again. She has been through too much.
Tess, having met the local bookstore owner, a very colorful, fun, 70-something woman named  Louetta Stafford, takes a great liking to the energetic senior and accepts a part-time job in the store.  Discovering Louetta grew up in the very house she has purchased and is redecorating while writing and working at the bookstore allows Tess great access to the home's history.  While cleaning up the wallpaper she has stripped from her bedroom walls, Tess discovers a mysterious key. This key leads to the truth of a long-ago crime. Intrigued, Tess begins to search for the truth but there is someone who is determined that the truth stay hidden and the games begin.
I give this well-written story 4 stars as I truly enjoyed the way Amy has presented her story and recommend Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction~JoEllen

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.
