One thought on “Hog Wild

  1. Gwenette

    This was pretty good I read the next book in this series first, and I really wish I d read them in order The angel statue that s mentioned at the beginning of the next book is explained here, and how the main character ended up sharing office space with an investment counselor in a former funeral parlor is explained in the preceding book That ll be my next read After my last foray into reading murder mysteries, I wasn t sure I wanted to tackle this one, but it was much better, featuring a charac [...]

    Another wild tale of Avery Andrews and this time she is back in Dacus and the bodies are piling up There is a wild pig on the loose and a beautiful angel who needs a home A developer is trying to pull a fast one in Dacus and someone is sending poison pen letters Even Avery gets one Then the bodies begin to turn up, killed horribly and n0 one knows who These are than cozies they are tough suspense thrillers in many ways as well I do wish Ms Pickens had written of them.

  3. Erika

    I enjoyed this one WAY than the second It was fun to be back in Dacus, the whole feel of the stories there are just different than the one she based in Charleston.I like how naturally she makes the overlapping and at first unrelated mysteries seem to merge and grow naturally, so far they have never really felt forced And I love how she includes storylines that have nothing to do with the main mystery as well.It s also been a real pleasure to have an inside look into a character as she grows, ch [...]

    This is a nice cozy mystery where Avery is learning how to move from big city, big firm law to the bread and butter of small town law In this book a sleazy housing developer is trying to buy out property from one of the older residents in town This leads Avery to a reporter who has of a history than she knows and his hot button is environmental damage done by large corporations destroying the land to make a profit A few murders later Avery has to come to terms with the knowledge that first impr [...]

    I am starting this book today and hoping that is goes down smooth than the last book by this author Here goes nothing.just took forever to finish it Just barely made my book challenge Started the last book in this series last night Fingers crossed it takes me less than a week to read.

  6. Kat Chan

    The writing was an easy read I would not describe it as a cozy mystery due to the violent and repeated menacing acts throughout, but in general a fairly quick read The characters were a little too transparent and it is always frustrating when the protagonist doesn t make obvious connections view spoiler Unusual as well, the protagonist actually doesn t solve anything Instead, a written confession explains everything hide spoiler Would not recommend and won t be looking for anything else by this [...]

  7. Ainsley

    Hello twists and turns with small town charm This book started off with chills but thrills but ended on a well rounded rather than a spine tingling note I thought I would find that disappointing but it actually wasn t It certainly didn t surpass any expectations or leave me stunned and thinking about the ending of the book for days but not all books should do that, this is a meat and veg kinda book, it fills you up, passes the time and is satisfying but isn t anything stand out or gourmet.

    In this 3rd of the Southern Fried series set in South Carolina, Avery has a full plate with many would be clients Following the Southern tradition of quirky characters and homespun humor, the story also highlights the plight of nature against humans Avery and the town of Dacus, reel under the discovery of three murders, and the sighting of Bambi, a pig running amok Pickens story is a gentle mystery, devoid of graphic corpses and graphic sex The tale is one that could be read aloud and no one wou [...]

    The pig has nothing to do with anything.The murders are barely strung together with very little in the way of red herrings The motivation isn t believable, and there is no climactic confrontation with the killer.The possible romance is developing waaay to slowly, with no smoldering, let alone sizzle, going with anyone The best relationship Avery has is with a deputy, who can t be the love interest because he has a gut and might possibly be married.

  10. Madelyn

    Another Southern Fried Mystery book Avery Andrews, attorney, has moved back to her hometown of Dacus, South Carolina She is setting up her law office Many interesting things are happening A native plant rescue, a pig on the loose, and a new reporter for her dad s newspaper are some of the activities that are going on The book keeps one guessing until the end.

  11. Fredrick Danysh

    When Harden Avinger dies he leaves a request that the accusation that his wife poisoned her carved on a giant angel for his tombstone A pot bellied pig is on the loose in Dacus fustrating the sheriff s department Soon lawyer Avery Andrews has left her big city practice to return home and is soon involved in a series of murders.

  12. Book Concierge

    This misses the mark Pickens is trying too hard, and has thrown in everything but the kitchen sink Lots of loose end No reason at all for several events I don t think I ll read any of the series.

  13. Pat

    This was a decent book, but a slow read for me for some reason Maybe getting burned out This was the first time I have read this author so hopefully the second book I have will be better.

  14. Suzanna

    What a fun, easy read Entertaining from cover to cover A bit on the predictable side, but very enjoyable.
