Publisher's Summary

All small towns have secrets - and plenty of them - as every small-town waitress knows. Daisy is no different. A young, recently separated waitress at H & P's Diner in sleepy southwestern Virginia, she hears more than her fair share of neighborhood gossip while serving plates of hash and peach cobbler. But when a reclusive old man shows up at the diner one day, only to drop dead a few minutes later, Daisy quickly learns that some secrets are more dangerous to keep than others - especially when there are money and moonshine involved.

The man's death was suspicious, and no longer sure who she can trust, Daisy turns sleuth while also seeking to protect their sick mother and keeping a handle on Aunt Emily, her goading, trigger-happy landlord. Caught between whiskey and guns, a handsome ATF agent and a moonshine-brewing sweet talker, and a painful past and a dangerous present, Daisy has her work cut out for her.

There's trouble brewing in her small town, and before it passes, many secrets will come to light. Carol Miller makes a memorable debut in Murder and Moonshine, the first of an intriguing new mystery series.

Missed my exit

Where does Murder and Moonshine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not usually a mystery fan, but this was recommended by friend and snuck up on me.

Any additional comments?

I listen to books in the car on trips and this one made me stay in the car even after I arrived. Comfort food for your brain.

Pretty good

This is a pretty good cozy mystery. The story moves a bit slow at times but I managed to stay interested in it and finish.

4 and a half stars

This is an entertaining mystery with well developed characters and an interesting plot. The only thing I didn't like was the paving. Towards the end the story dragged and I skipped ahead. The narrator did a good job also. I already bought the next book and look forward to it.

Dukes of Hazard in Virginia

I believe this author has great potential; however "country and rural" are not synonymous with dumb and uneducated. The story's location including the county name (Pennsylvania) and region of Virginia (southwest corner) was constantly repeated, as if a reader needed constant reminders. The "locals" were described in almost cartoonish terms, which reminded me of the old TV show Dukes of Hazard. The author had a nice way with dialogue and there were some funny parts, but the plot could have been developed much better. I kept fast forwarding to find better parts but it never really grabbed my attention.
