Publisher's Summary

Trouble down in Texas....

When snarky food critic, Josie Tucker, heads to Austin, Texas, to wax philosophical about the local barbecue joints, she stumbles on to a decades' old missing person case. With the help of a local reporter, a Goth ghost hunter, and a bunco-playing transvestite, she tries to unravel the heart-tugging, hidden history before the whole place goes up in smoke.

Loved it!

I love discovering a new book series and a new author!

Josie Tucker is an awesome female lead who, led by her blogging efforts, gets her into a series of mishaps. This is the first book for me and I greatly enjoyed the listen. It was mostly a good stand-alone but there were some references to her past mishaps that were not fully explained. That did not deter from this mystery though; just rounded out the many interesting troubles Josie had found herself in.

This was my first Warner narrated book and I really enjoyed her performance. She's a definite do-again.

The Narrator does a wonderful job in making the story come alive.

As an armature PI she stumbles on a decades old missing person case. Will she be able to solve the case without getting hurt, killed or in trouble. The characters are larger than life and there are some laugh out loud moments. A fun cozy without recipes.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kate Warner makes this a fun listen!

Full slab of fun.

Full Slab Dead is the fourth book in the Josie Tucker mystery series, but it's the first one I've experienced, and I absolutely enjoyed the heck out of it. Josie is a food blogger who apparently gets into trouble wherever she goes. This time around Josie is accompanying her boyfriend to Austin, and while he is at a medical conference she checking out the local BBQ places for blog. It's during one of these stops that she learns about the wife of one of owners of one of the BBQ restaurants. She's been missing for years and presumed dead...and she's perhaps also haunting the restaurant or her old house, and of course Josie just has to nose around and see what's really going on. Enjoyable mystery with a great cast of characters. As I said this is the first book in the series I've experienced but it won't be the last.

This is the first book I've heard narrated by Kate Warner and I must say I was impressed. She really brought the characters and story to life and I look forward to hearing more of her work.

I received a copy of this audio title in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great listen

Full Slab Dead was an enjoyable mystery. The narration was really good and the pace was steady enough to keep my interest. This was the fourth book in the series and think I would have understood the inner demons of the main character more if I had started at the beginning and listened to them in proper order.

Josie does it again

Josie Tucker mysteries are always fun and entertaining. This one is not any different. I enjoyed this book and the way it played out at the end.
