What they’re saying about it:
“If a murder mystery can be described as ‘delightful’, this one is. It contains my favorite parts: a small town, interesting characters, and a mystery to solve.”
“I just finished “News from Dead Mule Swamp” and found it wonderful. Joan has the ability to keep a story moving fast with loads of detail. I can see Anastasia’s new house down by the swamp. I sat on the porch listening to the evening sounds
from the swamp and could see the animals moving through the yard. This is a fast read but that is because it is so hard to put down. The further you go in the book the tighter the tension builds.
This was a great book to read on a cold snowy day. I loved how she developed all the characters and described her surroundings so well- the images were easily created in my mind. The story itself was well-developed and so compelling that
I didn’t want to put it down! I highly recommend this read, and am looking forward to the author’s next mystery!”
