USA Today Bestselling Author
The first three Dusty Deals Mystery series novels in one box set. Read along in this fun cozy mystery series as amateur sleuth and antique store owner, Lucy Mathews, her Alaskan malamute, Kiska and a cast of quirky characters discover romance and murder in the mountains of Montana.
Lucy Mathews, crime reporter turned antiques dealer, avoids confrontation like a home perm. She even lets a cat shove her around.
When Lucy trips over the body of a buckskin-clad relics trader, her ex-boss asks her to cover the story. She tries to tell him no, but old habits die hard and soon she finds herself directly in the path of a killer and the exasperating, if attractive, detective in charge.
Can Lucy catch a killer or is this the last confrontation for her—period?
No one’s perfect.
At least that’s what Lucy Mathews tells herself. Except faced with her boyfriend’s rodeo queen ex-wife and perfectly trained Australian shepherd, she has to wonder if maybe this whole ‘no one’s perfect’ thing was made up by someone like…Lucy.
Lucky for Lucy though, things are hopping around Helena. It’s rodeo season, and she has a booth. It’s a great opportunity to expand her clientele and maybe even snag a cash prize for Kiska as the world’s first sheep herding malamute.
Except Kiska can’t herd, Lucy loses her wallet, and oh yeah…there’s that dead rodeo queen Lucy just stumbled over.
Good thing her boyfriend’s a detective. Except that’s not going so well either. A new detective is in town, and he’s convinced Lucy’s involved in the rodeo queen’s murder. Her boyfriend is no help at all and worse he’s spending a little too much time with his ex-wife.
Lucy finds herself out of money, out of love, and maybe this time, out of luck.
You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family. You can though move two thousand miles away and hope they don’t come to visit. Unfortunately, for Lucy Mathews that only works for so long.
Lucy has a perfect week planned. The kind of week that includes a romantic dinner with her cowboy detective boyfriend, big dollar sales to the visiting Beef Ranchers Association and their wives, and maybe a relaxing holiday weekend at home with her Alaskan malamute, Kiska.
What she doesn’t have planned is a visit from her animal activist brother, his pet goose, Pauline, and his neon yellow van.
Lucy’s plans quickly go to the birds. First, her date is interrupted by brother and goose. Second she discovers a dead body, under her brother’s van. Then, when her brother gets arrested for the murder, the worst thing imaginable happens, Lucy’s mother finds out.
Not only is Lucy is left in charge of babysitting the recalcitrant goose, but her mother is threatening to come to Montana herself to solve the murder. Lucy has no choice but to dive into the investigation, and find the real murderer before her brother is put away for good.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I like mysteries. I like murder stories. I like humor. These books give you all three of these things. There is also some romance sifted in these books. I loved these books!!!! Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.
These books are written to keep your interest and keep you guessing who is behind all of the mystery. The cast of characters are complex but very entertaining. Very enjoyable to read.
I highly recommend them all. They actual mysteries keep you entertained and the relationships are quirky enough to be fun. Throw in the feel of Helena, Montana and lovely dogs (mostly malamute but add huskies in the last book) and you have great entertainment. Worth your time.
This is an awesome series with a very likable lead character with interesting friends and love interest! Once you read the first one, you will have to read the rest!
The set of books is perfect for dog lovers. The dog, a goofy Malamute, steals the show. The main character, an independent female who stumbles upon bodies with astonishing frequency, is charming and someone you would want as a friend. I enjoyed all three books and am ready for the next installment.
