Overall, I really liked it. I like that they were investigating an unsolved crime because it feels somewhat unrealistic for a small town setting to host so many murders throughout a series. It's especially difficult to suspend my disbelief that one character would find herself connected to every murder, in such a setting. Additionally, the main characters leave town to follow up on some leads and I really liked that. I guess I just need to see some changes of scenery, even in a book series. Mira...more
Another fun trailer park mystery. This one is about a cold case from 31 years ago that Wanda Nell gets involved with solving and I'm a sucker for cold cases.
I saw this book on the shelf; it said 'A Trailer Park Mystery', and I grew up around several trailer parks, so I had to read it! It does the trailer parks proud. This is a light mystery with the 'sleuths' being a newlywed couple who happen to live in a trailer park. The characters were amusing, with lots of names that sound best when you have a Southern accent ('Wanda Nell', 'Mayrene', 'Miss Lyda', 'Elmer Lee'). The mystery was interesting (a 30+ year old murder at the local high school). I enjo...more
This is the 4th "trailer park mystery" by Evans. In it, Wanda Nell is married to her schoolteacher sweetheart and only has one child left at home. Someone tells her about a girl who was found murdered on the high school football field 30 years ago, a murder that was never solved, and Wanda Nell and co. decide the poor girl deserves better than that. Another stroll into the dark and twisted underbelly of a small Southern town...
the 5th and final (?) installment of the Trailer Park Mysteries series. This is kind of a cold case storyline. Wanda Nell and Jack are now married. Jack is a true crime writer. He discovers a cold case from 31 years ago and he and Wanda Nell set out to solve it. Wanda Nell is a bit more likable in this story. I did have a time warming up to her.

I did not like this book as well as the previous ones in this series. It was "Too polite" on the whole an the humor between Mayreen and Wanda Nell was non-existent. I do not like the marriage idea either. Too hokey. I liked Wanda better as a struggling "hero". i don't know if i will read another by this author.
Enjoyed this mystery with Wanda Nell and Jack. Sad that this appears to be the last book in the series (even though there is no real ending to the series here).

The mystery was a cold case and for once did not involve anyone in Wanda Nell's family. lol

Enjoyed this cozy series.

Wanda Nell and her new husband Jack are happy until Jack decides to write his new book about a girl who was murdered right there in Tullahoma 31 years earlier. Soon both are haunted by the sad story, and decide to take whatever risks are necessary to avenge the unidentified girl.
Okay, I’m all caught up with Evans’ series. This last one was published in January of 2009. So I’m hoping Evans is working on a new one and hasn’t called it quits.
