I love Connealy's country books, but when I read this book I instantly fell in love. The absolute clumsy nature of both of them. The BOOKAHOLIC carpenter and the newspaper writer who inherited bankruptcy made me completely crazy, causing me to not be able to put it down. The back, ingenious. The hilarity in the style of writing, absolutely priceless. I hope that I could someday write like Mary Connealy.

Tongue-in cheek cozy mystery set in a small town in Nebraska that celebrates having the world’s largest field mouse, now stuffed and on display in the town hall. Mouse-phobic Carrie inherits her great grandmother’s junk-filled, mouse- infested house when the old lady is murdered. Nick, the life-long dork helps her dispose of mice and restore the house.

Carrie Evans returns home to Melnik, Nebraska, home of Maxie the Mouse. She is terrified of mice. She inherits her great-grandmother's house with all its clutter and mice. Carpenter,Nick O'Connor, is with her when the body of Wilkie Milnik is found in the pantry.
Humor, romance and murder in a small town with a giant field mouse that has been preserved as the symbol of the town's claim to fame.
It is a very good read.
not my favorite of this genre. I have the next two also. I will read eventually, but they are at the bottom of the stack.

I wrote my first book when I was about twelve. A romance novel. I shudder to think what a twelve year old could know about romance. I have no idea what happened to the manuscript. I suppose my mother found it, and burned it while screaming in horror, but I’ve always been afraid to ask. Was it a hundred pages? Two? I have no idea, but I seem to remember just writing FOREVER! So I’m guessing two pag...more
