Entertaining Who-Done-It Murder Mystery

I'm not typically a fan of westerns, but I very much enjoyed listening to this western murder mystery. The plot was engaging, the characters were interesting, and the narration was spot on.

I was also pleased to find that the content, while a little salty at times, would fall safely within a pg-13 rating (this is always a nice bonus since I have young children who love to play with my phone).

A free copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an objective review.

enjoyable western

If you could sum up Murder at Thumb Butte in three words, what would they be?

Not stand alone

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It was an interesting murder mystery. All we know is Jeff Sharp is the accused and he didn't commit the murder.

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

I think the narrator kept me interested with his great reading.

If you could rename Murder at Thumb Butte, what would you call it?

A Steve Dancy tale.

Any additional comments?

I would have enjoyed the book more if I had read the previous books in the series. I received this book for free for an honest review.
