When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder. Suddenly she’s learning the foreign language of southern speak, resisting her attraction to local celebrity Jackson Wright, and dealing with more mayhem than she can handle.
A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery that Tess attempts to solve. As she gets close to the truth, she encounters danger, mystery, a lot of southern charm, and a new temptation for which she’s not sure she’s ready.
Amy Metz is a former first grade teacher and the mother of two grown sons. When not actively engaged in writing, enjoying her family, or surfing Facebook or Pinterest, Amy can usually be found with a mixing spoon, camera, or book in one hand and a glass of sweet tea in the other. Amy lives in Louisville, Kentucky.

My review: Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz
I thought the book worked well jumping back to the 1930s to now. It is heavy on the southern sayings, but they get translated so Tess knows what everyone means too. I did figure out who the boss was way before they revealed it.
Tess Tremaine is divorced and moved to a small southern town called Goose Pimple Junction. She bought a old house with a past. She plans to write a romance book.
Jackson Wright is a local writer who has had a bunch of books sold. He offers to help Tess out by reading some of her work. He is divorced. He flirts a lot with Tess.
Someone keeps breaking into her house, stalking her. The Police Chief John Ed Price does not take Tess's problems seriously.
Jackson and Tess decide that maybe the bank robbery and the murder back in the 30s might be why all these attacks are about. So they decide to find out more about the past.
I kept waiting for Tess's boss at the book store to find out that she had written a children's book.
I would read more books with Jackson and Tess characters in the future.
I was given this ebook to read for the purpose of giving a honest review of and be part of Murder & Mayhem in Goose Pimple Junction blog tour.
