Publisher's Summary

After restaurateur Big Tommy Prather is blown to pieces in his front yard, Mustang Ridges and her two best friends are on the case. While the local police have ruled the death an accident, Mustang and the girls suspect murder. They can prove it...sort of.

As the small community of Lakeside, Texas mourns the loss of one of its most beloved citizens, Mustang, Haley, and Monica do their level best to find someone who might want Big Tommy dead. Only...every single person they interview, loves Big Tommy. He volunteered at the food pantry, coached little league, sang in the church choir, and sponsored funding raising events for every cause under the sun. In short, he was Jesus with a beer gut.

When Haley is kidnapped by the killer, all hell breaks loose and Mustang must solve Big Tommy’s murder before her best friend is blown to pieces.

I just adore this reader

What did you like best about Blown to Pieces? What did you like least?

The most enjoyable aspect is that I like my mysteries with a large helping of comedy, so that's here. I enjoy the reader's differentiation of the character voices. Nicely done.

What about Pam Dougherty’s performance did you like?

Her voice is just so etched with character, and warm, and infinitely listenable.

Hilarious who-dunnit

Mustang Ridges is a single mom who is struggling to make ends meet after her ex, the former sheriff, ran off with the town's money and left her with a mountain of debt. Mustang is a hoot...and will have you LYAO!! She and her 'gang' of friends are fresh off solving a mystery when Big Tommy is blown up on his front lawn...they believe that BT was murdered but the police has ruled it an accident. We follow Mustang and her pals as they decipher the clues...This was a murder mystery with a twist! Lots of humor while not being insensitive to the murder victim. If you like funny who-dunnits, then you'll enjoy this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

One of the funniest authors ever

The text for these stories are so witty, self-deprecating, and flawlessly delivered by the narrator. I just can't make myself stop listening.

Go Mustang!

Great story! Now I’m going to have to go back and read book one! The characters are wonderful, gritty and completely believable. Excellent storyline and the audible performance is top-notch.

Mystery with lots of comedy

Mustang is my favorite book character ever. I love that the author made me laugh so much without taking away from the seriousness of the murder. Very enjoyable and the narrator really did a great job bring Mustang and all the other charachters to life
