From the Publisher

Fugitive Mom. That’s the tabloid headline that has unearthed a whole world of trouble for Paula Holliday. Someone she thought she knew has been revealed to be an escaped convict. Hiding in plain sight—in her own New England town! Wanted criminals and secret identities have always seemed like the stuff of novels or television dramas to Paula. But ever since she somewhat accidentally solved a murder in casino country, Paula has cemented her reputation as a part-time detective. All she really wants to do is get back to her simple, everyday life—keeping her small business afloat and hanging out at the Paradise Diner, owned by her friend and former rock and roller Babe Chinnery. But before she knows it, Paula is wrapped up in yet another case. And as she digs deeper into the investigation, she finds that no one is really who she says she is—including herself…

MY THOUGHTS:

DEAD HEAD by Rosemary Harris is an intriguing contemporary cozy mystery set in present day Connecticut. It is the third in “Dirty Business Mystery”,but can be read as a stand alone. Book One,”Pushing Up Daisies,Book Two, “The Big Dirt Nap”. It is written with depth and details.The characters are witty,intriguing,and love capture your heart. The plot is easy to follow and believable.It has a fugitive from justice,murder,female gardener’s, mystery,suspense,Paula Holliday,a wise cracking amateur sleuth,unraveling the past,and finding justice. This is a fast paced story that will have you laughing in some parts and crying in others. It is a fresh look into mystery/murder with a female sleuth,friends,and of course a little dirty business.This is not just an amateur sleuth book but it also has a little romance,with a mix of social wit and a gutsy heroine with some very offbeat characters.If you enjoy a cozy,intelligent,
story with lots of character and style this is the book for you. It will appeal to all cozy mystery readers,and some romance readers.This was a read,must read story that will leave you refreshed and in need of the next installment.This book was received for the purpose of review from the author and details can be found at Minotaur Books,A Thomas Dunne Book, an imprint of St. Martin’s Publishing Group.
