Murder for a Rainy Day

Animal rustling is alive and well in the sleepy little town of Pecan Bayou, Texas–but with a particularly peculiar spin. Only the fake livestock seem to be at risk. First, cowboy legend Charlie Loper’s larger-than-life fiberglass horse disappears from the town square, but before the police can get any solid leads, the cow in front of the local steak house gets pinched.

Betsy Livingston Fitzpatrick, local helpful hints columnist for the Pecan Bayou Gazette, is trying keep her mind off of being nine months pregnant in the blistering Texas summer heat. Troubled by haunting dreams, she pursues the odd animal thefts in a case that soon turns into murder. As Betsy closes in on the killer, a hurricane is headed straight for the Gulf Coast sending spin-off storms and tornadoes to the little town of Pecan Bayou.

“Hunker down” with Betsy and the lovable characters of Pecan Bayou in the latest Betsy Livingston mystery from cozy author Teresa Trent. Recipes and helpful hints included.

My Review:

I have read a couple of the books in this  Betsy Livingston mystery series.  I love the little town of Pecan Bayou.  Betsy is nine months pregnant and trying to help solve who is stealing the landmark status in town. Her husband is busy working as a weatherman with a hurricane coming in and the two boys are at camp for the month getting into trouble.  Once you start reading this book you will not be able to put it down. You will fall in love with this series as I did.
