Favorites: Murder and Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction

Even though I grew up in a small town, it was out in the West, not the South. We had our own goofy sayings, but Goose Pimple Junction has us beat. 

I loved the local slang in this book. At the title of each chapter Metz highlights a word non-Southerns may need a little help with. Jackson is Tess's translator when she gets hung up on all the "Hire ya'lls" and "Mares." 

The chapter titles often get you curious or laughing, and sometimes both. I had no idea what the phrase "Just cut your shamer off and feed it to the chickens" meant, but it made me laugh and kept me reading. The southernfied atmosphere gave a lot of personality to this little town and really added to the story. 

Murder and Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction is available now from Amazon and Barnes and Noble
