Murder For A Rainy Day
by Teresa Trent

Murder for a Rainy Day has all the things I enjoyed about Burnout, plus a baby! The townspeople are warm and genuine. I felt like I had a stake in the goings on about Pecan Bayou and care about its residents, including the newest little’un.

Murder for a Rainy Day had some things that I knew were coming and other twists I did not see. It had some funny stuff, some recaps with dreams, some silly crimes and some murder.
Once you start reading this book you will not be able to put it down. You will fall in love with this series as I did.

This was an entertaining read, as are all of Teresa’s Pecan Bayou Series books. Teresa is an excellent writer who blends humor with a great mystery.

  Murder for a Rainy Day
Animal rustling is alive and well in the sleepy little town of Pecan Bayou, Texas–but with a particularly peculiar spin. Only the fake livestock seem to be at risk. First, cowboy legend Charlie Loper’s larger-than-life fiberglass horse disappears from the town square, but before the police can get any solid leads, the cow in front of the local steak house gets pinched.
Betsy Livingston Fitzpatrick, local helpful hints columnist for the Pecan Bayou Gazette, is trying keep her mind off of being nine months pregnant in the blistering Texas summer heat. Troubled by haunting dreams, she pursues the odd animal thefts in a case that soon turns into murder. As Betsy closes in on the killer, a hurricane is headed straight for the Gulf Coast sending spin-off storms and tornadoes to the little town of Pecan Bayou.
“Hunker down” with Betsy and the lovable characters of Pecan Bayou in the latest Betsy Livingston mystery from cozy author Teresa Trent. Recipes and helpful hints included.
My review: 
I liked that you can get right into the story and that Teresa keeps you captive with humor and fun and murder. Once you start reading this one you will not want it to end. It's that good. The story line is great with a plot twist that you didn't see coming  and the characters re strong and vibrant! This whodunit will have you reading through the night.
