Twenty-two-year-old Imogene Duckworthy has been waiting tables at Huey's Hash in tiny Saltlick, TX, itching to jump out of her rut and become a detective. When Uncle Huey is found murdered in his own diner, a half-frozen package of mesquite-smoked sausage stuffed down his throat, Immy, an unwed mother who has always longed to be a PI, gets her chance to solve a real crime.

If this is the type of book that gets published it's time to get some new editors! Very poorly written. Not even a child would find it interesting. I'm surprised that the police chief didn't arrest himself and all his deputies so the whole town was in jail. Thought when I bought it that it might be a new series my wife, family and I could enjoy, not going to happen. Very poorly written!
I enjoyed the basic story here. It was fun. Pretty good low-key mystery.
What I loved, though, was Veronica Newton's narration. She brings Imogene to life, capturing her wonderful sort of naive pluck, and does a terrific job with the rest of the cast of characters, handling the voices and timbers with skill and confidence. I never lost rack of who was speaking.
A delightful read.
