Description

"Lourey's mystery is hilarious, fast paced, and madcap." Booklist (starred review) Furious after being stood up by local hottie Johnny Leeson, Mira decides to abandon Battle Lake, Minnesota, where the women are churchgoers, the men like to hunt, and the body count is above average. But when a cheerleader bites the dust, Mira is called back to the town that has done her wrong. She begins investigating the New Millennium Bible Camp, a disturbing place with a Stepford Wives-meets-Hee Haw vibe. She wants desperately to ditch Battle Lake, but before she does, Mira is hell-bent on confronting her own demons to catch a killer. This novel is the fourth in a series of laugh-out-loud-funny, romantic, and a-little-bit-raunchy mysteries featuring Mira James, an urban woman with rural Minnesota roots. It contains swearing and hot and hilarious, PG-13 romantic encounters. Part of a ten-book series, August Moon is perfect for readers who love to escape into the humorous mysteries of Janet Evanovich, Denise Grover Swank, Stephanie Bond, and Chelsea Field. The publication order of the Mira James mysteries is listed below, but they do not need to be read in order; each novel stands alone. Get them all today!

Seattle Press Online "Hilarious, wonderfully funny cozy." CrimeSpree Magazine "Entertaining." Library Journal (starred review) "Another amusing tale set in the town full of over-the-top zanies who've endeared themselves to the engaging Mira." Kirkus Reviews "A fun, fast-paced mystery with a heroine readers will enjoy." The Mystery Reader "Lourey has a gift for creating terrific characters. Her sly and witty take on small town USA is a sweet summer treat. Pull up a lawn chair, pour yourself a glass of lemonade, and enjoy." Denise Swanson, author of The Scumble River Mystery series
