Publisher's Summary

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht, and she's not afraid to use it! As a self-employed engineering consultant with a penchant for oddball - read: shady - projects, Hetta Coffey has a history of inviting trouble. But now that she's been hired for a legitimate mining project in Mexico's Baja, it looks like smooth sailing ahead - until she discovers that people and pesos are disappearing faster than you can say, "This job is the pits!" And Hetta Coffey as sleuth? Goodness knows she's nosy enough, but her detective skills leave a lot to be desired. Luckily for her she gets help from her best friend Jan, and a mysterious Velveeta thief.

Funny and non violent

Reminds me of the Stephany Plum novels. I liked the narrator for Just the Pits much better. I may listen to other books by this author

Fun

Any additional comments?

This is the first book that I've read in the series – new for me. It concentrates on the character Hetta Coffee, an opinionated and very self-assured young woman ("for...late thirties") who doesn't let things get by her. She owns her own boat-home, and takes advantage of that fact.
She is hired in Mexico to help figure out what's going on with a mining company that's losing money hand over fist, and they want to figure out why.
Individuals are not what they seem, and Hetta kind of has to roll with the punches.
The characters are well developed, and although there are twists and turns, there is nothing unreasonable in the story. Now I have to go back and start from the first one in this series!
