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
Captures the Spirit of West Virginia
I have not read the print version.
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.
I have not, but I want to!
The most memorable is Tess. She is the main character, but besides that, she has a great personality!
I really love the way Tess thinks! I hope there is a book two very soon!
