This is the latest in C. L. Bevill’s Bubba series. I love this series. Bubba Snoddy is just wonderful and it makes my day when I learn there is a new one coming out. If you like a laugh mixed in with your mystery you can’t go wrong with this series!
Bubba is just doing what Bubba does. On this particular day it was delivering a casserole and buying wood to built a baby bed. On the way home he is flagged down by a woman with car trouble. She turns out to be a exotic dancer at the nearby gentleman’s club which Bubba soon learns is now owned by Bam Bam.
It doesn’t take long for him to find a dead body. Bubba always finds a dead body and that is when the fun starts. Miz Demetrice is trying to unionize the dancers, Willodean tries to arrest Homeland Security officers, David is working as a female exotic dancer and Bam Bam has a identical twin brother who is dead in the men’s room.
****The author of the series often has give aways on Facebook. Things such as removable tatoos and t shirts. For this book she gave a Amazon Fire. I was the lucky winner. I love the tablet but I want to make it clear that the prize had NO influence on my review of her book. This is the 8th book in this series. I have read all of them and most of her other books. I love her work and read her books. She does not have to give me anything to say good things about them. In fact, she has no idea about this blog and who it belongs to.
This is Bubba and Willodean’s wedding day. Everything is perfect. But with Bubba nothing is perfect.
Bubba finds a dead body in his house. A dead body that keeps disappearing. Who is the dead man? Who killed the dead man? Who keeps moving the dead man?
*****What I Thought About This Book*****
I love all the Bubba books including this one but it was a little hard to follow. There are so many characters now that it is easy to forget who they are and who they killed. I hope in the next book the villain is not connected to all the previous ones.
I still recommend the book. It was fun to read.
