Publisher's summary

Bubba Snoddy is a good old country boy with a big problem. Although he's personable, handsome, and lives in a historical Southern mansion in a small Texas town, he has just discovered the dead body of a woman to whom he was once engaged to marry. His ex-fiancée was responsible for Bubba being thrown out of the military, which in turn caused his shameful return to the tiny town of Pegramville, where everyone is a consummate gossip, and no one has any secrets.

Sheriff John Headrick believes Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. The townsfolk believe that Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. Bubba's own mother believes that Bubba killed his ex-fiancée in a fit of vengeful rage. To top it all off, there are some mighty strange goings-on at the Snoddy Mansion, where ghosts walk the halls rattling chains in the midnight hour, and Bubba's own sainted mother, Miz Demetrice, runs an illegal gambling ring. Rumors run merrily rampant about Bubba, decadent Snoddy ancestors, missing Civil War gold, a to-die-for sheriff's deputy with the greenest eyes Bubba has ever seen, and a Basset Hound named Precious who likes to nip first and ask questions later. Bubba has to find out exactly who did murder his ex-fiancée and quickly before he goes to jail for the crime, or before someone murders him.

A cozy southern mystery

Where does Bubba and the Dead Woman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Buddy is quite the character. He is thoughtful and caring but a the same time not one to be run over. I liked him a lot!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that the main characters were not the stereotypical 'southern hick' kind of people. They are smart and educated people who are 'normal' in their own way.

Which character – as performed by Michael Gilboe – was your favorite?

It's a toss up between Bubba and his mother Miz Demetrice. He is down to earth and she is out there at times. Between the illegal poker ring she runs and the every changing way she claims to have 'killed' her husband (he died of a heart attack}, you don't know what she is going to say next

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a cozy southern mystery that is light on the romance but heavy on the humor and laughter.
