Summary

A book-loving whiskey distiller’s life is upended when a famous rock star moves to town and murders start occurring.

When famous hard rock musician Beau Arson moves to Notchey Creek, Tennessee, the small town is sent into a frenzy. Strange events seem to coincide with Beau's arrival, threatening the town's idyllic image and the much-anticipated autumn festival, Pioneer Days. 

Whiskey distiller and nerdy wallflower Harley Henrickson lives a quiet life of books and hard work, having given up a Harvard scholarship to care for her late grandfather, whose distillery she has since inherited. Her life is upended when she and her best friend, Tina Rizchek, a rhinestone-and-stiletto-wearing caterer, stumble upon a disoriented drifter in the ditch, and soon after, a wealthy history professor is murdered. As Harley investigates the murder, memories from her own childhood begin to surface, and she unveils a dark secret connected to Beau Arson and prominent citizens in town. 

In addition to sleuthing, other issues are causing Harley trouble. Professional football-player-turned-sheriff Jed Turner doesn't appreciate her interference in the murder investigation. The mayor and Chamber of Commerce president are convinced her pet pig, Matilda, is trying to ruin Pioneer Days. Her great-aunt, Wilma True - in between her hair emergencies - is on a mission to create matching festival outfits for Harley and her pig. And thanks to her great-uncle, Tater, she finds herself hauling a giant model cupcake, a pig, and an antique toilet in her truck - all in one week. 

Filled with humor, heart-rending moments, and a cast of complex and eccentric characters, The Mist Rises over Notchey Creek is sure to please cozy mystery fans and those who enjoy books about small-town life.

I have been listening and love the book and enjoying it very much.

I have been listening and I’m enjoy the book very much. The different characters voices the way she changed them and how funny they are. Overall the book is really good. I love it. Can’t wait till the next book that comes out. My daughter always wanted to write a book or do an audio. She really loves books and reading books when she was little. I hope she makes a career out of it. Maybe someday she will write her own books and narrate them also. I’m so proud of her and if her grandmother was here she also be proud of her.

Delightful!

This is a very entertaining book—the story, the descriptions of the Smoky Mt area, the colorful characters, & the very pleasant narration. I highly recommend!!

Loved it!

This is a well written book with something for everyone within the well constructed plot. The voice over is well done and appropriate to the region. Can't wait to find out what the characters are up to in book two!

Excellent Narration

This book is one of my favorites and the narration by Ms. McMasters is excellent. Her lovely accent puts me right in the south and the characters come alive through her talent. I can only hope she will narrate future books. This author and narrator make a great team.

Excellent characters, humor, and heartfelt moments

This is a wonderful mystery novel, with a complex, intelligently designed plot, and a cast of complex and eccentric characters. This is a cozy mystery, but it is so much more, a cut above the rest. The author has a very engaging writing style, and the narrator's voice is perfect for the tone and rhythm of the story. It was a joy to listen to, and these characters, as well as the setting, are created so compellingly they become real. I'm anxiously awaiting the second book in the series, as these characters have become like friends. Bravo!

Not for me

This is an ok story but, it's not for me. I didn't really like any of the characters, especially Harley. She's homely and plain, but, she's such a good person that everyone loves her. The ones who do not like her hate her because no expectations are placed on her. The mystery is complicated and there are several twists and turns. However, after a while I got tired of the characters and skipped to the end of the story. Jamiy McMasters is an ok narrator, but I was expecting the characters to have a southern accent. I won't be getting the next book in this series.

It took me a while to get into this book and I had to force myself to finish it. The characters didn't appeal to me very much. They were flat and uninspired. The mystery was pretty good but the pace of the story was slow.
