Crazy Little Thing Called Dead by Kate George


George’s Crazy Little Thing Called Dead is the third installment in the Bree MacGowan Mystery series and, in Kate George fashion, is packed with lots of mayhem and suspense! George’s usual brand of humor is less apparent in this installment than it was in the first two books; however it is still just as entertaining, as Bree is again placed smack dab in the middle of trouble at every given opportunity. Let’s face it, these days, not tripping over a dead body would be out of the ordinary for Bree, since this makes dead body number three.

Bree MacGowen, newly appointed investigative report for the Royalton Star Weekly, has just stumbled upon a dead man, this time, while on her way into Planet Hair for an early morning hair appointment. Oddly, the victim, who is lying in the middle of the salon, has disposable diapers duct taped to his chest and back and is wearing a mismatched suit. Believe it or not, Bree is thrilled to be the first one on the scene in hopes of breaking the story. However, while trying to catch the killer, she manages to upset a dangerous mob boss. To make matters worse, an FBI agent from the last murder investigation she was involved in has suddenly materialized. With obvious palpable tension between the two, and too many suspects to discount, can the two find the killer before Bree becomes the next victim?

Crazy Little Thing Called Dead is published by KGMW, with the Kindle edition released in mid-September, and the print edition in late October 2012. It is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and at local bookstores everywhere. Check out the first two books in the series; Moonlighting in Vermont, published in August 2009, and first place winner in the Daphne du Maurier Award in the Excellence in Mystery/Suspense category that same year, and the second book in the series, California Schemin’, released in March 2011.

Kate George is originally from Sacramento, California and now lives in the backwoods of Vermont with her husband, four children, and many animals. In fact, her current home state is the setting for her Bella Bree MacGowan novels and her many jobs as a young adult are the basis for her main character’s multiple occupations. Kate is also a member of Sisters in Crime.
