Murder In The Milk Case by Candice Speare


I have to say, signing up for the Heartsong Presents Mystery club is one of the SMARTEST decisions I've made in quite awhile! These books are fun reads and solid stories with memorable characters.

In "Murder In The Milk Case", Trish Cunningham is a bit stunned when she reaches for her gallon of milk and instead finds a hand. Upon further investigation, that hand is attached to a body...that has expired unnaturally.

What to do? Well, if you're Trish, redneck gal who takes no guff, you do your own investigating.

Especially if you could be a suspect. Because of something your brother did. And the murdered guy knew about it, and was using it to blackmail you. Which would make your husband VERY unhappy, especially if you were prone to getting hurt.

This is the life of Trish Cunningham...wife, mother, step-mother, and small business owner. And it is hilarious...when she's not being targeted by a killer, harrassed by her teen step-daughter, bossed by her hot hubby, nagged by her overbearing mom, snubbed by her snooty in-laws, or interrogated by the local law.

So, who killed the blackmailing pharmacist, Jim Bob Jenkins? Who is this woman he married...the one who keeps making a play for Max Cunningham, Trish's husband? And why does coffee make Trish sick...or is it murder that leaves her queasy?

Pick up a copy of "Murder in the Milk Case" and you just may never look at dairy the same way again! I loved it, and I'm giving this one four out of five bookmarks, with a tiny carton of non-fat milk as a charm!

Happy Reading!
