This is not a book I would have generally have chosen to read, but the earlier reviews intrigued me and it was a freebie, so I thought I'd give it a try. I can honestly say I haven't regretted the time reading the book. It's entertaining, it's laugh-out-loud funny, has great characters and an engaging plot.
You'll probably guess the true villain before long, but that, in no way, detracts from the joy of reading the book.
The humour is gentle, subtle even, but if you do get it it is excellent. It's not found in blinding wit or quick one-liners, but in wry observation and well-crafted dialogue.
The editing is slightly scrappy in places and misses some typos, but the writing style is slick and mature and so any errors can be skimmed over and forgiven.
I'm off now to read more from this author because this freebie has been an excellent advert.

A young man accused of murdering his ex- fiancee sets out to prove his innocence. That doesn't sound very interesting, but I soon found myself captivated by the characters, happenings & dialogue in this tale set in a small town in the south U.S.A. There were no gory details or hi-tech forensics or"strong" language to distract from the charm & humour, (the latter being unusual in this type of novel) & the mystery deepened for quite a while. Another author to look out for!

Fantastic story, really good characters and the whole southern feel comes through not just in the dialogue but spills over into the narration. Thoroughly enjoyable read.

Meet Bubba, our laconic good 'ole Southern boy and his dog, Precious and you'll be taken on a really enjoyable yarn. This book is written with tongue firmly in cheek and yet it is engaging from start to finish. Evoking the South of America and all the foibles, racism, sexism and any other kind of "ism" you can think of C.L. Bevill has crafted a neat and punchy whodunnit that will keep you guessing right up until the end.

There is a raft of interesting and fully fleshed out characters and I'm sure you'll recognise more than one of them in your local community! This book is crying out to be adapted for the big screen and I can see the Coen Brothers all over this type of tale, which should give you an idea of how the book reads if you know the quality and body of their work.

I thoroughly recommend this book.

I read this sitting in the sun and I am sure I could smell and feel the deep south. The book has a slow lazy feel to it written just as I imagine the south would be. The characters are interesting, and the fact there is no great depth to them, actually increases the appeal of the book. The plot is simple, the situations simple to interpret, and some of the characters seem to have simple tedencies at times.

You can get the actual plotline from the synopsis above, but you find yourself cheering for Bubba, fictions most unlikely hero ? It is also really funny with some great one liners.

Really enjoyed this book. Bubba the main character and gets himself into quite a few scrapes. Amount of times he was arrested for murder was priceless and when he persuaded Tee to take them all out of jail to hunt for clues was hysterical. Must read

A huge giggle from start to finish although this book also has a cleaver little plot to keep you occupied. What's not to like about a Texan, his Basset and somewhat strange mother. A great cast of characters.

Bubba and the Dead Woman does have a certain charm, and there are some genuinely amusing comments and situations.

However, I found it quite heavy-going in parts; partly because the author doesn't seem to use paragraphs and page-after-page of block text is quite the deterrent. In addition there were enough typos to make it irritating.

I felt that the author uses too much "tell" and not enough "show" which also makes it less rewarding to read. Not hopeless, but it didn't inspire me to buy another in the series.
