Dead Man Falls by Paula Boyd is book two in her Jolene Jackson Mystery series and I have to say it’s as hilarious as the first book. Once again Jolene is back in Kickapoo, Texas this time for her mother’s big birthday bash. This is a yearly occasion and always held at the gossip center of Kickapoo: the Dairy Queen. The biggest thing going on in the area this time besides her mother’s birthday is the brand new waterfall they have made. Funny there is a town called Red River Falls and no waterfall. Not only is the falls the main attraction, so is the body Jolene just happens to spot falling down the rocks into the river as they have what would technically be called a ribbon cutting. Seems the minute Jolene hits town bodies start showing up, but this time it’s a blast from the past, her high school years. Someone is out to get rid of some of the classmates and Jolene and old sweetheart Sheriff Jerry Don Parker are also a target. As the bodies pile up all around the falls the race is on to find the killer out of the many suspects.
Once again Paula Body takes the reader on a rollicking hilarious ride through the country side of Texas. As we keep up with the same characters in the first book we have a couple of new ones added. This is a great series!
