This is Kaye George's second in the Imogene Duckworthy (every time I say that name I have to smile) series. The characters all have colorful names like Hortense, and Tinny Bucket, and her husband, Beryl, better known as Rusty... as in Rusty Bucket. Hilarious!

All of the characters seem to live up to their wildly colorful names. And Immi, as friends and family call her, is certainly a character. Barely out of her teens, she's a single mom with a four year old daughter, a job she's hanging onto, l...more

A Rodeo of Mayhem and Deception

Kaye George’s Smoke: An Imogene Duckworthy Mystery tells a fast-paced tale of a young woman, residing with her daughter and mother, whose main desire is to become a Private Investigator.

I had a good time reading this book following Immy in her pursuit to become a private investigator. Luckily or not so lucky for the victim, but things are happening in Saltlick , Texas where Immy sinks her teeth into solving the criminal acts that has befallen her small town home.

‘Smoke’ is the second book in the Imogene Duckworthy Mystery series by Kaye George. The first one in the series, ‘Choke,’ was nominated for an Agatha Award in the First Novel Category. ‘Choke’ is a great book, but I like ‘Smoke’ even better.

This story revolves around pigs and is completely delightful.

“Imogene Duckworthy did not like pigs. She was fairly fond of cattle, having grown up surrounded by them. She hadn't been around pigs much. In fact, this was the first time she'd ever driven toward a pig farm.” 1 likes
