Publisher's Summary

Beer and polka music reign supreme at Octoberfest, Battle Lake's premier fall festival. To kick off the celebrations, the town hosts a public debate between congressional candidates Arnold Swydecker and the slippery incumbent, Sarah Glokkmann.

But the festive mood sours as soon as a well-known Glokkmann-bashing blogger is found dead. When Mira's best friend's fiancé becomes a top suspect, she wades through mudslinging and murderous threats to find the political party crasher.

Love this series

This book made me laugh out loud. Mira and Mrs. Burns are a great combo. Can't wait to hear from them again.

fun, folksy mystery

Set in a rural Minnesota small town, Jess Lourey spins a tale of politics and murder, with a little bit of sexy. Mira is the reluctant librarian turned sleuth. Her best friend and confidant is an Octogenarian. She resists a love temptation, which only leads to discovering a dead body. A good story, well crafted a delightfully read. I'll be checking out more of Lourey's monthly mysteries!

Excellent and easy to listen to!

So excited to see this series on audible. I just wish they had more then just one on here.
