Bones to Pick: A Brie Hooker Mystery by Linda Lovely

Brie never expected one of her aunts to be killed in an accident.  She was still so lively and running a goat farm, making cheese and selling it.  Now she was gone and just her twin was left.  Brie decides to stay with her remaining aunt and she will help run the farm.  She still might pursue her dream of a vegan restaurant but her aunt needs her now.  Who expected the adult pot bellied pig to dig up a skull buried in the barn during the wake for dead aunt?

Henery Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 24th.

Brie gets irritated by how the Sheriff treats her aunt.  He's snooping through everything.  He's disrespectful, and he suggests it's her husband who's been missing for years who is buried there.  He's right but how did he know?

It doesn't take long to find out that there's been some dirty dealing going on.  The Sheriff and his cronies are going to profit from a development company.  It just happens to be on land that belonged to the dead man.  One woman says it wasn't his signature on the form.  The next thing that happens is that she's dead.  Then her husband commits "suicide".  Anybody who knows anything is disappearing.

When Brie and her girlfriend set the banker up with tracking devices that transmit sound, they hear more than they want to know, including the sheriff shooting him in head.  Then they are discovered.

With killers facing them, it looks like the end of the road...

As strange as it sounds, this was a believable read.  Brie even has two men interested in her and she can't decide which one she likes best.  It's a good thing she had buddies or she probably wouldn't still be alive...
