Summary

"Nothing good ever happens at the butt-crack of dawn. No doubt, the headless corpse on the autopsy table in front of me would agree." – Violet Parker

Real estate agent Violet "Spooky" Parker stumbles upon a body-part theft ring at the local funeral parlor and suspects her caustic coworker has a hand in it - or maybe a foot. Can Violet discover what's in the crates that the crooks are sneaking out of the mortuary in the dark of night? Or will she end up in one of them herself - in pieces?

Fun story, annoying heroine

The writing in this series seems to get better with each book, but the heroine just seems like a dingbat sometimes. I keep holding on because I like the other characters and I want to see where the story is going, but the heroine's slowness to catch on gets pretty annoying. I guess I'm hoping the author writes her a little smarter as the writing improves in general. I may opt for the print books so I can just skate over the parts where she acts/ things like a bimbo.

Gets Better and Better

What I like most about this book is the realistic dialogue. I know most people are offended by cursing, but the words aren't used gratuitously and it only adds spice and realism. This isn't the typical cozy mystery. There is paranormal activity and lots of sex. But, I love it anyway. I can't wait to read the next one.

Still a good read, but...

I still enjoy the story and I still laugh and I still love Doc. But... honestly Violet doesn’t have any redeeming qualities to me. She’s a horrible friend, she’s not that great a mother and since the beginning I’ve only ever seen her using the people around her and never giving back. If she was a single woman this would be a lot more enjoyable because then her behavior would make more sense. But she’s not, she has two kids and she’s running around like she doesn’t. It drives me crazy. When I see this as her as a single woman without motherly responsibilities I enjoy the story. It’s cute and funny despite the fact that she’s a horrible best friend. I will keep reading and hopefully she’ll start to mature. We shall see. The narrator is excellent though. She is a huge reason I keep listening!

Laugh out loud suspense

I am positively in love with this heartwarmingly hilarious suspenseful romance series!! Ann Charles has hit the nail on the head with these books.
Thanks to the cooky characters and charmingly real main characters I feel like I can relate to these ghost believers!
Thank you Ann Charles! You had me at purple boots!

sappy romance parading as a mystery

I couldn't get past the substantial teen type romance bull to even see the mystery. mislabeled book written for the immature reader.

Boring and seems to worry more about sex than the

What would have made Dead Case in Deadwood better?

Less sex and about her feelings and more about the story

What could Ann Charles have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Less sex and about her feelings and more about the story

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Not sure I gave up after about 1/2 way through the book

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nothing except the story location since we live near Deadwood, SD
