Bubba and the Late Lamented Lassie
What could possibly go wrong?
Bubba Snoddy is a good ol’ boy with a wonderful family. His beauteous wife, a sheriff’s deputy, Willodean, is wondrous, his baby has starting sleeping through the night, and his hound, Precious, has taken to the changes with great aplomb. All is well.
Then the sound of bagpipes fills the air. His mother, Miz Demetrice, has organized a Scottish appreciation festival, and everyone in Pegram County is celebrating their Scottishness, whether they have it or not. Bubba is trying his best to take care of the baby while going about his business when he stumbles across…a dead body.
Worse than that, it appears as though Sheriff John Headrick himself is the murderous culprit, and the Pegramville Chief of Police, Big Joe, doesn’t seem interested in whether Sheriff John is innocent or not.
Willodean is barred from investigating the crime, but Bubba isn’t. He might be toting around an infant with a Bassett hound trailing behind them, but he’s going to get to the bottom of the late lamented lassie come hell or high water.
Bubba and the Late Lamented Lassie is the 10th Bubba Mysteries novel.
