Hung Out to Die by Sharon Short

Review by Dawn Dowdle 

Josie Toadfern has been separated from her family since she was eight.  Her parents dropped her off in the local orphanage, and her dad's family refused to have anything to do with her.   

Now her grandma "Mamaw" Toadfern wants her to come to Thanksgiving dinner.  Against her better judgment, she accepts.  Once there, she regrets going.  Even more so when her long lost parents show up for dinner.  Things go from bad to worse when she finds a dead relative while out walking with a friend. 

Her mom begs her to help clear her father's name.  She doesn't want to do it.  But to keep peace in the town, she decides to help.  Can she clear her father's name and keep them from ruining the town with their new get-rich scheme?  Can she do all this without putting herself in danger? 

In the meantime, she is having second thoughts about her situation with her boyfriend.   

Josie is a great character.  I always enjoy reading a book in this series.  She is so down to earth and likeable.  It doesn't surprise me all the situations she gets into.   

The author has done a great job of creating a town full of quirky but likeable characters.  I can't wait for the next book.  I highly recommend this book and the whole series.

"Hung out to Die" was a great book. I couldn't put it down. Well actualy I did put it down, but you know what I mean. Everyone who gets a chance to read this book should read it.
