This is a entertaining set of stories about the different people in Goose Pimple Junction. My favorite Jack’s getting Tess to say yes. That boy went through alot of hoops to get that yes but also did some corny things that have you swoon. It ends with the kidnapping of aunt Imy. That lady was a hoot with her commercial jingles.

Our characters are on full display with their phrases, quirky and lovable personalities that give us charm that is like a blanket on a cold night. Warm and inviting.

Although this quick escape read is the third book about Goose Pimple Junction, the events contained occur between the first two books and is the response from the author to requests from readers who adore this quirky, small southern community. Readers fell in love with the characters and wanted details about special events in their lives. While you may enjoy it more completely if you have already been introduced to this loveable, zany cast of everyday locals, it can be read and enjoyed as a stan ...more

Short & Tall Tales in Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz is a book filled with short stories and one long tale. All the stories are focused around Metz’s characters in her Goose Pimple Junction series. All the stories in this book also connected with each other somehow.

Before reading Short & Tall Tales in Goose Pimple Junction I had not heard of Amy Metz’s Goose Pimple Junction series. Since reading this book I have grown fond of the characters of Goose Pimple Junction. All of

I felt right at home in Goose Pimple Junction, TN, from the get go, probably because I live in the same small town in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky. I smiled and nodded my head all through the book because I know these people (or, their counterparts 'round these parts.) I even have a Southern certitude to match the quotation at the beginning of Short and Tall Tales, because my husband's Mamaw used to say it about our younger son, "He don't care which way the wind blows."

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Amy Metz is answering questions about things in Goose Pimple Junction. Questions I had myself like How did Johnny Butterfield become police chief? and How did Ima Jean come to live with Louetta? and more in this very fast read. Perfect to hold us over until Rogues And Rascals In Goose Pimple Junction is released.

I really liked the “tall tale” where we learn about Johnny Butterfield’s arrival in Goose Pimple Junction. The quote at the top of chapter one

The colorful cast of GPJ is back with their usual zany antics and hilarious goose pimplisims (?) and Southern sayings. This time, author Amy Metz sheds some light on different characters and their backgrounds with just enough creepiness and crime to give you, well, goose pimples! A fun romp through a Twin Peaks kind of town--enjoyable to read and hard to put down. Amy Metz's breezy, easy style keeps the pages turning as the plot thickens with a satisfying ending. A delight from start to finish!

If life has been too hectic lately, take a trip down yonder to Goose Pimple Junction. Have a seat in Slick and Junebug's Diner, order a glass of sweet tea, and relax a spell. Author Amy Metz's small-town characters are as familiar to me as my hometown neighbors, and I'm sure they will have the same effect on many readers. One of my favorite aspects of the book was the use of a colorful "Southern-ism" to begin each chapter, many of which I've heard all my life.

Although this is book is

Reading these short tales was like hanging out with friends. I live in a small Single Tax Colony on the Gulf Coast and I swear I recognized some of these characters. Their accents, use of words, and mannerisms all rang true. And Goose Pimple Junction could be my home town.

Right from the start I was laughing. There’s a scene in the local diner where some ladies are gossiping. It reminded of when I managed a full service gas station. Remember those?

The owner and a bunch of

I really like the first Goose Pimple Junction book and was glad to find this short novella between the first two books. I love the colorful characters and I was glad to find out more about Tess and Jack.

This is a collection of short stories and shaggy dog tails that are based on the Goose Pimple Junction mysteries. They explain a bit of the background information of some of the main characters but also provide a bit of comic relief reading. Just a short collection to while away an hour or so.

Took this on the road with me and it was just the delightful escape I was hoping for at each day's end: bedtime bite-sized servings of great comic relief. Look forward to reading Amy Metz's longer works now.

Hilarious! Can't wait to read the rest of her books.

I might have been reading about my own deep south relatives and family friends and acquaintances from my childhood. The dialogue is priceless, authentic as it gets! Those southern nuggets of wisdom and certitude hold true as ever even though I spent almost 40 years living and traveling around the world before retirement brought me back to my own version of Goose Pimple Junction!

Interesting Tale

If you can follow the language (Southern American??) then this is a great story. I had a hard time with it.

Short and somewhat sweet.

This did fill in some of the blanks, so I recommend it if you are following this series. The recipes are a nice bonus.

I just read an amazing book, y'all — Short & Tall Tales in Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz, Book #1.5 in the Goose Pimple Junction Mystery series.

Amy wrote Short & Tall Tales to answer her readers' burning questions about events that took place between the end of Murder & Mayhem and the beginning of Book #2, Heroes & Hooligans in Goose Pimple Junction, questions such as:
• How did Johnny Butterfield become police chief?
• How did Tess and Jack get engaged?

Southern pride and fried chicken

You will fall in love with the characters in GPJ, real down home southern pride and your mouth will be watering and wanting to taste the good food and laugh at their antics and shenanigans and maybe learn some new lingo. You will remember pickle for sure. Very descriptive and entertaining a must read

The novella was good and I liked Jack and Tesses engagement story, but the rest could have been left out.
