The Stuck with a... Series is Castle-gone-country with the mom squad, Betty Boop, and My Cousin Vinny in the barnyard.
But this ain't no ordinary barnyard.
There's a lot more than a crazy rooster missing from the chicken coop, a bad ass cow causing a bunch of trouble, and a dog looking like a creature out of a storybook. There's a stiff too. A stiff - as in a dead guy - in a snow drift near the chicken coop.
Things aren't lookin' too good for Nicky Blane, who owns the farm. He's used to creating fictional stiffs for his best-selling novels, not defending himself from being framed for murder.
Bonus content included: In case you missed D. D.'s Stuck with a... Series Prequel Stuck with a Schmuck - which gives you a superfab fun setup to Stuck with a Stiff - no worries...'cause it's included!
About the authors:
D. D. Scott is an Amazon Top 100 Best-Selling Romantic Comedy and Humorous Mystery author. She's also a Writer's go-to-gal for muse therapy and indie epublishing, the co-founder of The WG2E - The Writer's Guide to E-Publishing, and the founder of The RG2E - The Reader's Guide to E-Publishing. You can get all the scoop on her, her books, her online classes and live workshops, plus juicy tidbits too from her new cyber home...D. D. Scott-ville.
David Slegg is a debut humorous mystery author. He grew up on a cattle farm on the banks of the Wabash River and studied Ag Economics at Purdue. He's been just about everything under the sun - a waiter, a research technician, a bouncer, a salesman, a mapmaker, a bookseller, an ultra-marathon runner, an AutoCAD drafter, and an editor. In his spare time, he recently earned his MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science) from Simmons College in Boston. His friends have been telling him for years that he should write a book. Let's just say he's had an unusually high number of improbably unlucky experiences. We're talking about the sorts of things that you'd find humorous if they were happening to a character in a novel but not so funny if they were happening to you. He's happy to be inflicting some of these situations on his characters. Hell, it's probably therapeutic.

Had to check to see if it was abridged
Would you try another book from D. D. Scott and David Slegg and/or Karyn O'Bryant and Jeffrey Kafer ?
maybe, if it was really cheap
What could D. D. Scott and David Slegg have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
flesh it out -- it has a clever premise, but the jumps are too sudden. I kept thinking it was a badly abridged version. The extended family premise was pretty much wasted: they set up these potentially interesting relationships then did nothing with them.
What didn’t you like about Karyn O'Bryant and Jeffrey Kafer ’s performance?
Dual-narration either works or it doesn't. This doesn't. The voices didn't complement each other. Plus, the Italian accents were excruciatingly awful -- sounded like a poor rendition of Romany gypsies. My Sicilian relatives would run screaming from the room.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stuck with a Stiff?
I wouldn't have cut, I'd have added!
Any additional comments?
Okay, it wasn't totally awful, just nowhere near as good as it could have been. The ending obviously sets up a sequel -- I wouldn't mind seeing the authors try again.
