When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder. Suddenly she’s learning the foreign language of southern speak, resisting her attraction to local celebrity Jackson Wright, and dealing with more mayhem than she can handle.
A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery that Tess attempts to solve. As she gets close to the truth, she encounters danger, mystery, a lot of southern charm, and a new temptation for which she’s not sure she’s ready.
Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz is an awesome cozy mystery. I loved the premise of the book. It’s not often that a great cozy sleuth gets to solve such an old murder! I thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters and the setting of Goose Pimple Junction. It sounds like a town I want to stay in. Tess is one of my favorite cozy characters. I like that she is starting over in Goose Pimple Junction after her divorce. It gives her a fresh, uninfluenced view on the town and the people living there. The mystery flowed really well and the story kept me guessing. I can’t wait to read more in Goose Pimple Junction!
Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz is available on Amazon for just 99 cents right now. Definitely worth that and more. Pick up your copy today, and settle in for some weekend reading in Goose Pimple Junction!
1) What does your writing area look like? Do you have a certain room that you write in? Is it organized or chaotic?
I write on a laptop, and I used to write in a big comfy overstuffed chair, but I’ve recently had to switch to my desk in my home office due to back problems. It’s fairly organized and neat. I have my favorite pictures of my sons all around me, as well as my favorite art on the walls.
2) How much time do you spend writing each day?
I’m at my computer every day pretty much all day. But I may be blogging, marketing, promoting, editing or writing–usually all of the above. Actual writing time is hard to pinpoint. When my characters are talking to me, and the story is flowing, I write for as long as I can. Editing seems to take forever.
3) What is the best (and worst) part of the writing process?
The worst for me is final edits and formatting. It takes me a gazillion proofs to get it right, and I’m always seeing things I want to fix or change. It’s nightmarish. I swear, I feel like I’ve been through labor and birthed a child once the book is launched.
4) Do you have any interesting writing quirks?
The only quirk I can think of is that I put the name Lou in some form in all of my books, in honor of the city where I live–Louisville. In the Goose Pimple Junction series, I have Louetta, but in other books I’ve had Louie, Luke, and Lulu.
5) What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
I like to spend time with my sons and daughter-in-law. I also love photography, and I like putting my pictures into photo/coffee table books. I really like designing the pages and playing around with the pictures. I’m learning InDesign and plan to publish a few of my photography books. I also love to bake. And read. And attend my son’s concerts.
6) Lastly, what are you working on right now?
I’m finishing a novelette for the Goose Pimple Junction series that will go in between books one and two. I’m also doing final edits on Heroes & Hooligans in Goose Pimple Junction, book two in the series. Once I finish, I’ll send the manuscripts to a professional editor and hopefully have both books published in a few months.
