When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder. Suddenly she’s learning the foreign language of southern speak, resisting her attraction to local celebrity Jackson Wright, and dealing with more mayhem than she can handle.
A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery that Tess attempts to solve. As she gets close to the truth, she encounters danger, mystery, a lot of southern charm, and a new temptation for which she’s not sure she’s ready.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I don’t think it’s very different other than you have to be careful not to have any holes in the crime and the investigation. Sometimes you need to know about police procedure or crime scenes to tell the story realistically.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write what you love and seek beta readers. Getting feedback on your work from objective readers is crucial, and they also can be a good support system.
Amy Metz is the author of the Goose Pimple Junction mystery series. She is the mother of two sons and lives in Louisville, Kentucky. When not actively engaged in writing, enjoying her family, or spoiling her dog and two granddogs, Amy can usually be found with a mixing spoon, camera, or book in her hands.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Two murders in my family history inspired this story. I grew up hearing accounts of the tragedies and always thought someone should write a book about them. One murder was never solved, which I thought was another tragedy. It felt good to find the killer, even if it was fictional.
