Burying the Hatchet
Series: Hometown Mysteries
Author: Chris Well
What happens when a psychic and a minister are invited to a debate, and both walk into the room but only one leaves alive? Longtime grump Earl Walker thinks it may be time to find a different church as his new pastor is now a suspect in murder. But can Earl’s lady friend convince him to stand up for his newfound friends and fight for the truth?
I am really enjoying this series. While Burying The Hatchet features the same characters, it’s quite different in terms of the type of mystery as well as the methods for solving the crime. It has a nice classic mystery feel, which makes it a joy to read. My main complaint is at only 256 pages, it’s short. Before I knew it, the story was over. Then again, that could be a compliment. Since I couldn’t put it down, I easily finished it in two days. I’m looking forward to the third book in the series in which the truth about Earl’s injury is finally revealed. I can’t wait!
What a delightful mystery! This is the first novel by Chris Well I have read – I will certainly read more. The two main characters are older, so the story is definitely aimed at “seniors.” The plot and snappy dialogue, however, would be found rewarding to any mystery lover.
I enjoyed this well-paced mystery. I had no idea who-dun-it until the end. In addition, it includes a senior citizen romance and, in the background, a college romance. The characters realistically walk across the pages, and the reader likes them: well worth reading.
