About This Author

Teresa Trent writes her Pecan Bayou Mystery Series from Houston, Texas. With a father in the army, her family moved often finally settling in Colorado. Living in Texas for the last 19 years she loves the people and even the weather. Murder for a Rainy Day includes a hurricane, and having endured Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Rita with her family, Teresa would much rather write about them than evacuate from them. Teresa includes Danny, a character with Down Syndrome in her Pecan Bayou family and in real life is the mother of an adult son with Down Syndrome/PDD. Creating the character of Danny and all of the other inhabitants of Pecan Bayou has been a joy for her. This book is the last one in the Pecan Bayou Series taking Betsy from single mom to mother of three. Teresa is now working on her next series that will take place in the Piney Woods of Texas.

My review: Murder For A Rainy Day by Teresa Trent

4 stars

This is the sixth book in the series. I have now read the last 3 of the series. Murder for a Rainy Day had some things that I knew were coming and other twists I did not see. It had some funny stuff, some recaps with dreams, some silly crimes and some murder. I was guessing right on the thief but did not get the murder right. If you have been reading this series you will want to read this one for sure. If your new to the series, this might give the secrets away for the past 5 books. It can stand alone but you might enjoy the dreams more.

Someone is stealing the fake animals of Pecan Bayou. Why anyone would want the animals or how they stole them is up for grabs.
Everyone wants to know if Betsy is in labor yet and what she is having. She is not telling anyone. There is also Hurricane heading towards them. Betsy is also 9 months pregnant.

Lots of drama going on in this book. You think things are heading to calm but them things happen again. You don't want to put it down. The dreams are a little slow part of the book for me. I can see the reason for all that in the end it all works.

I was given this ebook to read so I can give a honest review and be part of Murder For A Rainy Day blog tour.
