Publisher's Summary

Child of the Appalachian mountains, Tess Spencer has experienced more than her share of heartache. The Glock-wielding, knife-carrying housewife knows how to survive whatever life throws at her. But when an anonymous warning note shows up in her best friend Miranda's mailbox - a note written in a dead woman's handwriting - Tess quickly discovers that ghosts are alive and well in Buckneck, West Virginia. Hot on a cold trail, she must use limited clues and her keen insight into human nature to unmask the killer...or the next victim might be Tess herself. Tinged with the supernatural and overshadowed by the mountains' lush, protective presence, this twisting psychological mystery is the first in A Murder in the Mountains series.

God, Family and Home Intertwine with Mystery

Interesting characters and a plot with enough twists to keep you guessing!! I enjoyed becoming acquainted with the residents of Buckneck, Virginia. I especially liked the narration of the audio book. Being from the south, I often find narrators southern accents to be laughable. Not so with this book---the accent was served up just right!!! The older ladies accents were thick but it was still believable and is definitely something you will find among the elegant southern lady. It reminded of someone I know!!

If you are looking for a mystery with small town southern hospitality then here's your next read. The story will pull you in from the start. You will be welcomed into the home of the Spencer family where you will be greeted with warmth and cookies fresh from the oven. Tess will take you on a tour of the town as she attempts to keep her friend Miranda safe from danger.

I also liked the double meaning of the title!! An enjoyable read!!!!

Captures the Spirit of West Virginia

Would you consider the audio edition of Miranda Warning to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version.

What did you like best about this story?

The characters are very believable. I am from West Virginia, and I can tell you, this is how folks from here think and behave! I love the colloquialism.

Have you listened to any of Becky Doughty’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, but I want to!

Who was the most memorable character of Miranda Warning and why?

The most memorable is Tess. She is the main character, but besides that, she has a great personality!

Any additional comments?

I really love the way Tess thinks! I hope there is a book two very soon!
