Short & Tall Tales in Goose Pimple Junction by Amy Metz is filled with short stories and one long tale. All the stories are focused around Metz’s characters in her Goose Pimple Junction series. All the stories are also connected with each other somehow. Before reading Short & Tall Tales in Goose Pimple Junction, I had not heard of Amy Metz’s Goose Pimple Junction series. Since reading this book, I have grown fond of the characters of Goose Pimple Junction. All of Metz's characters have a southern charm that I adore. The names of all her characters are unique, however, she has more than one “butter” character which confused me at first. I liked that all the characters had good chemistry with each other.

My favorite character was Officer Johnny Butterfield. I wish that more real life police officers were like him. The short stories are all interesting and make you see how each character really is. The story that I liked the most was “A Right Good Choice.” The long tale was entertaining and a lot happened in it for it just to be considered a tale. I love that at the end of the book Metz surprises the reader with recipes for different apple pies. The Caramel Apple Pie sounds absolutely delicious.

Short & Tall Tales in Goose Pimple Junction is the third book in Metz’s Goose Pimple Junction series. It is also the first one I have read. Since I enjoyed the characters so much, I want to read the other books in this series. If you like mysteries with a southern charm, then this book and the rest in this series are for you.
