One Shot Too Many (3rd book in Appalachian Adventure Mystery series) features Detective Tucker with yesterday’s regret haunts, leading to today’s deadly fix. Impulsive acts from the past return to haunt, resulting in the death of a popular photo-journalist near the cozy mountain town of Boone, NC. Detective Tucker must face his own past while investigating suspects determined to keep too many secrets. Did the victim take too many photos of one of them?
Was it the nurse, determined to win the horse show? Perhaps the retired military man with too many guns, the dental hygienist with too many lovers, the grandmother who loves too much or the sports medicine professor who drinks too much.
Jemma Chase, trail-ride leader and CSI wannabe, follows clues, even though her interference may cost Tucker his job. Review by University of North Carolina http://www.lib.unc.edu/blogs/ncnovels/index.php/2012/05/30/maggie-bishop-one-shot-too-many-banner-elk-nc-ingalls-publishing-group-inc-2011/
