DEAD SILENT by Amy Beth Arkawy — It’s summer time in one of my favorite small towns and the living is easy or maybe it’s dying that’s easy especially if you are a mouthy radio shock jock.

Things are heating up for Goodship’s young widow as she is trying to move on with her life. Murder and gazpacho are best served cold or perhaps not at all in upstate New York if you want Eliza and Midge to mind their own business. At least that’s what detective Tom Santini would like these girls to do! Yours truly can only toast the bubbly to Ms Arkawy and wait patiently for the next book in this fabulous series.
