Publisher's Summary

“Dead body. Shot. Road west of the lake.”

Niralya May, a wealthy socialite who never strayed from her rigid calendar, was scheduled to be on the east side of the lake collecting rent from her cottage tenants. Instead, she was found face down in a ditch - on the opposite side of the lake - murdered. According to her handsome trophy husband, Mrs. May wouldn’t be caught dead on the west side of the lake on a Tuesday! Yet she was, and it’s no mistake that she is well and truly dead. The residents of peaceful Hutton Village, an idyllic spot nestled in the rural foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, are shaken to the core as news of the murder spreads.

Preparations for the upcoming Winter Festival are thrown into chaos as Police Chief Arlen Well and Sergeant Cashel Truly wrap their heads around the investigation. In a community where everyone knows everyone, Arlen and his team quickly discover big secrets hidden among the villagers. The list of suspects grows to include neighbors they’ve known - or thought they knew - all their lives. Finding Mrs. May’s killer will take much more than a friendly wave and smile.

The clock is ticking, and Arlen is determined to make an arrest before the killer strikes again.

Mrs. May Is Well and Truly Dead is the first book in the Well and Truly cozy mystery novella series. Author Sandy C. McKee weaves a homespun tale that reveals the darkness hidden by the light. Featuring a folksy ensemble cast, and lots of Southern comfort food, it’s a story as charming as Hutton Village itself...and as deadly as murder.

Great small town murder mystery

OMG, what an awesome murder mystery that will have you laughing one moment and shaking your head the next. I absolutely loved the characters. Even thoguh it's a small town they aren't stumbling around wondering what to do next. The chief makes sure his team keeps up their training and the dismay of the councilman who believes they shouldn't be waisting the town money in that manner.

Ha, the councilman also thinks there's some crime spree going on and isn't too pleased being interrupted when trying to tell about this spree when the murder is discovered and off the chief runs to find out what's going on.

My favorite characters in this story are Rose, one of the police officers, who is determined the husband did it and wants to strangle him or shoot him. It's a toss up on which she would prefer if the chief would let her, lol. Next is the husband who's so innocently stupid that it's funny. Like he seriously makes you think that he is the murderer with his behavior and things that he says. Of course he also makes me want to reach through the book and strangle him too. Then you have Giddy, sorry if her name isn't spelled right determined that no matter what the winter festival needs to go on, murder or not. In fact, she even tells the officers that they should look for things to go in the festival while they or wandering around the city looking for clues. Like seriously!

One of my favorite parts is how they actually caught the murderer and it is someone that you probably wouldn't look at right away.

The narrator does a great job. He really brings the characters to life. One part that I eally like that he does is during the meeting is when all the characters are talking he actualy has it so that you hear all of them. He doesn't do one voice at a time. I have never heard this in other books, usually it's multiple narrators, but this time it's just Theo.

This is suppose to be the first book in the series so I can't wait for more!

Small town drama

Everybody know your business in a small town. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Theo Holland does a good job narrating.
