Starting each chapter with, “Mama always said…” followed by a text with funny, idiomatic sayings, once again Ms. Metz displays her trademark Southern Charm. This time we are quickly drawn into her story by a “bad guy,” waiting for a “mark”––comically renamed Mr. Polyester Pants. From there, the author introduces us to a whole host of likeable characters––a newly-hired, northern-transplanted gal with a head for investigation; an appealing, albeit mistr
Dollycas’s Thoughts

We are back in Goose Pimple Junction where there never is a dull moment. You will be laughing out loud at times and on the edge of your seat at others.

Caledonia Culpepper thinks she is doing everything right in her marriage but her husband has completely lost interest in her.

Wynona Baxter has come to Goose Pimple Junction for a job. A job to kill someone!

Plus the town seems to be overflowing with Rogues and Rascals.

Another hysterically funny installment in the Goose Pimple Junction Mysteries!

Not your everyday cozy mystery series, author Amy Metz takes on murder, mayhem, and the south, like no other author I’ve read. I’ve never laughed so hard while reading a mystery. I have read some that are a lot of fun, but this series has been known to make me do the laughing-snort! You know you’re in for laughs with each chapter starting out with Mama always said . . . One example . . . “Mama always said . . . If it’s

This book shot up my tbr pile quickly. I love Amy's use of alliterations. In fact, the book is full of such brilliant details, character names and locations that in themselves provide entertainment, even before the snappy dialogue and the individual personalities assigned to the characters do their magic. This is simply hilarious.
Witty, with great scene setting and wonderful aouthern flair this has long been one of my favourite cosy mysteries series.
It starts with an ominous murder scene, then

Southern at it's Best!

Amy Metz's Goose Pimple Junction is full of oddball eccentric characters that you just have to love. Their "southernisms" are awesome, especially for a northern like me. Metz does a wonderful job of weaving the plot threads around creating drama & a few surprises. I like that each book in the series has a different main set of characters while still keeping the old favorites. This actually allows you to pick up any of the books & start there, although I do recommend reading

Another hilarious, laugh out loud, cosy mystery set in the wonderful southern town of Goose Pimple Junction. This is a strong series with wit, great authentic feel and excellent detail. Starting with brilliant choices for character names, such as Pickle Culpepper, and small side characters, such as a very snappy shop assistant, this is entertaining right from the start.
The plot is well thought-through, the pace just right to keep things flowing nicely and the characters are simply to die for.

The down-home folks are back in GPJ with their fun Southern sayings and country manners--but with a twist. There's a not-so-nice new gal in town who's hell-bent on a mission of murder. Who'd want to kill one of these sweeter-than-pie locals--and why?
In the fourth installment of this fun cozy mystery series, Amy Metz shakes things up with a hardened hit woman who wreaks havoc on this Mayberry-like small town. Metz's smooth style is easy to read and flows from one surprise to the next with altern

Another humorous mystery from Goose Pimple Junction. This focuses on hit woman, Wynona, and her first independent assassination attempt. There is a murder and a lot of botched attempts. Wynona interacts with the citizens in a variety of disguises, feeling there is something wrong with her assignment and with her career choice. Caledonia Culpepper, the victim of the multiple attempts is going through a contentious divorce and befriends Wynona is some of her guises. Lots of colloquial phrases and ...more

Loved it! I didn’t realize at first it was book 4 but it was fine to read as a stand alone. I enjoyed the characters and the thrill of trying to find out who wanted cal dead. The characters are well written and as someone who has family from the south the dialect was spot on. All in all a fun book to read and I look forward to reading books 1-3

Another fun trip to GPJ

I’ve read all the other Goose Pimple Junction books and loved them, and this one is no different. If you’re looking for a great cozy mystery book (and series), you won’t be disappointed with this.

Hilarious and serious

I liked the down south references and the atmosphere. The characters were quirkywithout being too far out to be believable. Good story about deciding who to be.

Oh my, indeed!

Please don't let this be the last book in this series!!! Usually by the 3rd book of a series it's getting stale, but not this series! It's just getting better💕

I really loved this book. The twists and turns of the plot made it hard to put down. As a stay at home mom, I liked the positive perspective it portrayed. I can't wait for the next book to see what the future holds for the citizens of Goose Pimple Junction. Whatever it is, it will be entertaining.

I just couldn't get into this book and gave up. Not to my liking.
Almost wished Wynona could have stuck around for Hank.

If it looks like a duck..

It a very clever read...deeply developed characters...situations and twist. The Southern idiom gives the storyline humor and heart. Don't miss.
