“Nothing good ever happens at the butt-crack of dawn. No doubt, the headless corpse on the autopsy table in front of me would agree.”–Violet Parker
Real estate agent, Violet “Spooky” Parker stumbles upon a body-part theft ring at the local funeral parlor and suspects her caustic coworker has a hand in it–or maybe a foot. Can Violet discover what’s in the crates the crooks are sneaking out of the mortuary in the dark of night? Or will she end up in one of them herself … in pieces?
Can’t get enough of this series!
My Thoughts on Dead Case in Deadwood
Holy smokes! I haven’t been this enamored of a series since… umm, well, it hasn’t been all that long BUT STILL! I am so enjoying the shenanigans these characters get into. I mean… Harvey and his love gel (fruit flavored because that’s what his lady friends like), best friend Natalie and her determination to see Violet paired up with the Detective despite Violet’s insistence that she wasn’t into him and he wasn’t into her (something I’m not too sure of), Doc’s ghostly visitations (not to mention his … stamina in the stairwell. And the bedroom. And the bean bag chair.) … all of it just makes me giddy. It’s fast-paced and sometimes silly and I’M HAVING SO MUCH FUN WITH IT!
Oh. OH! I can’t forget to talk about some speculations about Violet that were tossed around. Well, I won’t ACTUALLY talk about them because they’re the sort of thing that I think you have to experience for yourself but I will say that if Doc’s ideas are true, it’ll open a whole new world for Violet. And since what he’s saying makes sense… the next book should be VERY interesting. *smiles maniacally at everyone* Very.Interesting.
Once again, we have some nice setup for the next book/mystery. Violet helped the Deadwood PD tie up one investigation but a lot of questions were left unanswered and the ending… oh, the ending. Nothing comes easy in Violet’s world and things just look like they’re going to get even hairier in book 4.
*excited grin* Can’t wait!
