This series mystery's opening chapter was heavily seasoned with some showy literary pizzazz, but soon settled into a fairly standard rhythm. I'm not a fan of mysteries as a rule, and even less a fan of any series (except for the Hitchhiker books, a class unto themselves), so I wasn't expecting much from Ranger Anna Pigeon. But Deep South surprised with its readability and a few amusing eccentricities, such as the heroine's penchant for noticing the size of men's bellies, much the same way a male might notice the size of a woman's ta-tas.

The mystery itself was not too difficult, not too obvious, but like a baby bear's breakfast, just right. I could have used much more detail in the resolution of the plot, however. It seemed that once our battered heroine solved the mystery, that was that. No chase, no arrest, no trial, no satisfaction at seeing the miscreant punished in any way. Ah well, perhaps that's the trick to these series--always leave them wanting more.
