November Hunt (Murder-by-Month Mystery #7)
November in Battle Lake, Minnesota, is cold enough to freeze the balls off a pool table. It's also deer hunting season.

Quick recap, Tom Kicker is shot by his best friend, Clive. Tom's daughter hires Mira to investigate because she believes there is more to her father's death than a hunting accident. And, being a mystery, of course there is more.

I like Mira and her quirky perspective on life and as an aspiring PI.
