Give ‘Em Pumpkin To Talk About
by Joyce and Jim Lavene
These skilled writers have done it again. They’ve penned a book that had me completely transfixed. Their style of writing feels as though it was so effortless to them. (I bet they would say different). It just flows across the pages.
~Lisa K’s Book Reviews
Well-tuned, with plenty of romance, mystery, suspense, history, legend–and some just plain ornery people. The book became a really fast read, because I couldn’t bear to stop before finishing!
~Mallory Heart Reviews
This is a great read, with wonderful characters and a great plot. You’ll want to read it all in one sitting. If you are looking for a great new mystery series then I highly recommend this one. I’m really looking forward to book two.
With a romantic interest, a murder, lost gold and missing grandparents, not to mention a hard to deal with mother, this cozy mystery has all of my ingredients for a great read!
It is Amazing!…Each character brings something unique and has a charm about them that really bring this story to life.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Give ‘Em Pumpkin is a superb beginning to a new series. It’s cozy mystery; and it’s written by the Lavenes. What else could it be but great?
This is a good cozy with a couple of mysteries. Lots of drama, treasure hunters, murders and talk about ghosts and Aliens.
I’m beginning to suspect Joyce and Jim Lavene have special powers. How else can they write so many books so fast and make me fall in love with their characters so easily?
Laura’s Ramblins and Reviews
Mysteries abound in the first book in this new cozy series from the prolific writing team of Joyce & Jim Lavene. I am often astonished by how many unique and interesting stories these two produce, and Give ‘Em Pumpkin to Talk About is no exception.

The Lavenes has penned a fantastic mystery with so many twists and turns you will nor be able to put this book down until you reach the last word. Al I can say is I hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next installment because I want it right now!

OMG what a book. I love these authors, their books are always so good.
~Bab’s Book Bistro
The story is a quick easy read, with complications at every turn. The new characters are well-developed, yet leave you anxious to learn more about them in future books.
What I love about the Lavene’s writing is that their stories are fast paced and gripping. Once you get started reading on, you don’t want to stop until you reach the end.

… just roped me in from page 1…
This book was totally enthralling.
~Melina’s Book Blog
In addition to the great character dilemmas we are also faced with many a mystery…The Lavenes handle them all, masterfully weaving them together into a taut mystery!
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Give ‘Em Pumpkin To Talk About was a fun thrill-ride of a mystery that had me from the very first page.
It ‘s a book exciting and intriguing, with several twists, two mysteries to solve and a bit of romanticism.
The story unfolds at a quick pace with complication after complication…

Now Sarah is faced with other issues when a man is killed who claimed to have information about what happened to her grandparents. She learns of a Confederate chest of gold that is said to be buried on the property, and treasure hunters who are willing to do anything to get their hands on it.
Were her grandparents murdered for the gold? Sarah can’t sell the land and go back to her life until she has answers. But the cost of the answers may be her life.
