Death Goes To The County Fair
by Annette Drake
The world-building is well done, the plot is fast-paced, and the characters are real and likable.
Right out of high school I was one of those carnies and ride operators. There were descriptions in this book that put me right back in the festival atmosphere, down to the tastes and smells.
…an exciting, fast-paced, mystery that had me racing through the pages.
~Mallory Heart Reviews
Living in a small southern town myself, the depictions of small town life, such as how quickly word spreads, and how connected the characters are, rings true and makes for many fun encounters and conversations.
I absolutely LOVE this book, and look forward to reading more in the series.
Annette Drake squeezes one heck of mystery into 100 pages.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Death Goes to the County Fair by Annette Drake is a promising start to a fun cozy series. The characters (including the town of Ogallala) are unique and colorful.
What a fun idea – a murder/mystery at the county fair!

Joni Harte knew her first job out of college would be tough, but she didn’t expect it to be murder.
With the ink mostly dry on her journalism degree, Joni accepts the position of news reporter and photographer for The Ogallala Gazette. She’s tasked with chronicling all of the goings-on of the quirky characters who inhabit this small Missouri town.
While investigating the identity of the first murder victim, Joni makes an enemy of the local sheriff. Worse, she catches the attention of a violent stalker who promises to cure Joni of her curiosity.
As the Ogallala County Fair comes to an end, Joni must uncover the truth before she comes to hers.
