I read the first book in the series and went looking for more. This is one of those series that follows a family through different romantic story lines. What makes this one different is that – at least so far – the first romance is still an ongoing story in the other books.
Well written and kookie.
Here’s the bio from Amazon
Ann Charles is an award-winning author who writes mysteries that are splashed with romance and humor. Her book NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD won the 2010 Daphne du Maurier for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense Award and the 2011 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award for Best Novel With Strong Romantic Elements.
Currently, she has several fiction books available: NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD, OPTICAL DELUSIONS IN DEADWOOD, DEAD CASE IN DEADWOOD (selected as one of Suspense Magazine’s BEST OF 2012 books), and BETTER OFF DEAD IN DEADWOOD, which are all part of her ongoing Deadwood Mystery Series. The fifth book in this series will be out in mid-2014.
Also available from Ann are the first three books in her Jackrabbit Junction Mystery Series: DANCE OF THE WINNEBAGOS, JACKRABBIT JUNCTION JITTERS, and THE GREAT JACKALOPE STAMPEDE.
I like this series and plan to read more of her books. If you like sassy heroines with crazy families, check this one out.
