I liked the book and loved the heroine. Wanda Nell is a blue-collar "everywoman". She works hard, she worries about her kids, she has no time for herself - she wouldn't mind having a love life if only she could find a spare minute. I enjoyed the setting and the characters (especially the flamboyant Mayrene) and the dialogue drew me in - I could almost hear the accents and visualize the facial expressions. Ironically, the only thing lacking in this "cozy" mystery is the...well, the mystery. There really isn't much of one - but for me a cozy is more about the setting and characters than edge of the seat suspense. And on that count this one definately delivers. If you are a fan of Ann B. Ross or Dixie Cash give this one a try - very entertaining.
The list of suspects grows, and Wanda Nell must deal with the good-old-boy friends of Bobby Ray, including the chief deputy sheriff, Elmer Lee Johnson. She also has to contend with a harridan ex-mother-in-law who has never liked her and blames her for Bobby Ray's death. Their relationship can be summed up by Wanda Nell's statement, "you wouldn't spit on me if I was on fire."
Wanda Nell doesn't trust the sheriff's deputies, and carries out some investigations on her own. Some readers say that they guessed the killer's identity. Well, the killer was on my list of suspects, but it was a longer list. I did not think that it was that obvious. Events did seem to bring about some reconcilliations within Wanda Nell's family, and a possible boyfriend for Wanda Nell.
Some of my friends will love this novel. I would rate it at the PG-13 level.
