    One thought on “Pickle in the Middle Murder”

    1. This mystery had a lot of fun moments bouncing around in semi-disconnection from the murder investigation and the main character, Shay. It took me several chapters of reading to figure out more about Shay than her gender and her stress-borne tendency to revert to messiness without JT, her partner who's falsely accused of the murder in question.The set-up to the story reads like a missed opportunity - Shay and JT are at a Ren Faire where Shay stumbles upon the body of a man in the portapotty. But [...]

    2. In Shay O’Hanlon’s third caper, Shay is hoping to enjoy a thrilling day at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival with her partner, JT Bordeaux, and their two dogs. One of their dogs, a bloodhound with a heightened sense of smell, somehow leads Shay to finding a corpse in a porta-potty, with a pickle in his mouth (hence the title) and a bullet to the head. Before the dust settles, JT is then arrested for his murder! Shay, with the help of her friends, Nick “Coop” Cooper and Eddy Quartermaine [...]

    3. This series is so fun and wacky. The characters are out there and the situations they get themselves into are just insane but that's what makes them endearing. I enjoyed that Shay and JT's relationship is evolving and I can't get enough of Eddy, Coop and Rocky. I loved that this one took place at the Renaissance Festival, which I have attended many times. One of my favorite series by far. I can't wait for the next one!!

    4. A terrific mystery with well-drawn and likeable characters that jump off the page, and a fun setting. What more could a reader want? Oh yeahMORE! This was the third in the series, but the first one I read--it stands alone well. Looking forward to devouring the rest.

    5. 3rd book in the series. I won a copy of this book on as part of their free reads program. Since it was the 3rd book I decided that I needed to read the others first so that I would know who everyone was.

    6. This started off a bit slow, but then picked up. Another fun caper with Shay and crew. This book and the last didn't have much interaction with JT and Shay, which really helped make the first one. Hopefully the next will have more of them working side by side.

    7. I was intrigued with this murder mystery by a local author that takes place at the Renaissance Festival--a place I grew up working at and loving. I found it at a local mystery book store. It was OK. A little contrived. Fun, interesting people. Reminded me a lot of a Janet Evanovich novel.

    8. I discovered the Shay O'Hanlon Capers after a weekend with some great reading and writing friends. They keep getting better, with each one funnier than the last! This one kept me guessing.

    9. This is written by a woman that I used to work with and it is the third in a series! She dedicates it to the Borders staff and I'm in it. Very exciting and fun.

    10. I enjoyed the various people in Shay's world. The "protector" bit was overdone. Other than that a good murder mystery with a love story woven into the storyline.

    11. Shay and her girlfriend, JT, are spending a day at the Renaissance Festival. While not normally Shay’s scene- JT enjoys them and Shay enjoys seeing her girlfriend happy. It’s a nice day until Shay finds a body- and then has to watch her girlfriend, a cop, get arrested in broad daylight.The man that JT is accused of murdering is the scum of the Earth, JT was involved in a undercover case to bring his operation down, but because of her actions; he was let go. Did JT exact her revenge?Shay does [...]

    12. After a brilliantly funny opening chapter or two, this dissolves into a mishmash of plotless boredom – there is no suspense – the very heart of a mystery - and head scratching wonder that this writer did not take some obvious avenues to make this novel both funnier – somehow making fun of elderly people with physical and mental disablities in a nursing home doesn’t make it – and have more of a light, strong plot.

    13. I wondered how Jessie was going to pull this one off. How can a highly respected officer be the chief suspect of a murder when the victim is also another officer? On top of that, the dead person is found in an 'outhouse' at the Renaissance Fair with a pickle stuck in his mouth? This is a crazy, fun caper. I thoroughly enjoyed the read. Thanks Jessie!

    14. I chose this book because of the title. It was a good read and looked at how a bad officer can get in and be kept there. It also looks at how a good officer can make a mistake and learn from it and make amends.

    15. This is the third book in a series. Since I haven't read #1 & #2 I didn't get all the references to the past. So much of the backstory was lost. I'm not sure I'll read any other books by this author at least not pay for them, and my library has no others to download.
