A fun southern mystery!

First things first, the name Bubba Snotty instantly had me hooked. It's a hilarious name that fits the character so perfectly! And Bubba's mom, Miss Demetrius is absolutely hilarious. She's a loud and loving southern mother who says the most hysterical things. Anytime she speaks about her late husband (who died of a heart attack) she jokingly makes up a new way that she killed him. For example she would say, "your father, before I shot him dead with a muzzle..." Or "before I poisoned your father," and it's so so funny in the book. Bubba takes his mothers flair with a grain of salt, as he is a calm and down to earth simple guy who compliments her perfectly.

Bubba gets wrapped up in a murder when his ex fiancé shows up dead on his property & there's no one else to blame except bubba. He has to clear his name & find the real killer before he is behind bars for life. Along with his trusty sidekick dog 'Precious,' the two companions start to collect clues while running into some humorous roadblocks along the way.

This is a great southern cozy mystery & I love that it's not your typical "hick" or "trailer park low IQ" kind of shtick. Everyone is educated & it's a realistic story in many regards. The narration was spot on for all the characters & my favorite part was at the end when all the different townsfolk start collecting up as they head to different locations to solve the mystery once & for all. There were a lot of big personalities together in one large scene & it was a ton of fun! I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review & I honestly loved this listen & would have happily paid a credit for it! I'm looking forward to more books in this series!

Good old fashioned story writing.

This story sounds like it might be hokey and just not too funny - that couldn't be more wrong. The story is kinda hokey, but I loved the story, the plot, and the characters. Bubba's mom is hilarious! If you've ever lived in the South, or love stories about the South, check out this book. The narrator is amazing and seemed to get the right voices for each character. I almost felt like I was looking back at my high school and some of my relatives. This book is kind of a mystery combined with southern comedy.

Seriously, give the book a try it really is very addicting.

I received this audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review. However, if I did not like the book, I would have just vaguely gave a synopsis and just left it at that.

great fun!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes if I had a friend that read this kind of book. The humor is really clever and not the usual dumb southern redneck stuff.

What does Michael Gilboe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Excellent narration. His voice sounds a lot like voice overs from Disney specials from my childhood and I kept having flashbacks to that. However it was spot on and I can't imagine a more perfect voice for this book. Tone was great as was the cadence.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Definitely made me chuckle. Many many times.

Any additional comments?

Ok, it's not Shakespeare but for what it is (cozy down south mystery) it was great. I will definitely read more of this series.

Dumb Dumb Dumb

I didn't get the appeal of a stereotypical southern redneck so I quit listening after about an hour. Life is too short!

Nice to have a southern gentleman named Bubba portrayed as something other than a mouth breather. Very funny and interesting book. Loved Bubba's mother Miz Demetrice. What southern lady doesn't want to grow up to run illegal gambling for all ur friends? Read for review and was so worth it!

But the sheriff and the town have already gave him his sentence, now he must clear his own name with some help from his mama and a sheriff deputy.
