The Murder Pit Jeff Shelby Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Daisy Savage finally has everything she wants. A new husband. A bunch of kids. A charming old house.

What she doesn't want is a dead body.

When a frozen pipe in the basement of her century-old home leads her and her husband downstairs into a newly discovered crawl space, they find a coal chute they didn't know they had. And a corpse inside of it.

Things become complicated when Daisy realizes she knew the victim. And things get even worse when it becomes increasingly clear that the body was placed there to make Daisy look like the killer.

Against her husband's advice and her own common sense, Daisy makes it her mission to prove to the denizens of Moose River that she is innocent. But doing so may be more dangerous than she planned.

    Such a great book.... lots of suspects, with lots of motives. You learn to love the main characters, with their witty remarks and obvious love for their large family. Can’t wait to read the next one of the series!

    Life with a blended family in a small town gets complicated by the discovery of a body in their house. Light reading, for sure.

    Reading Murder Pit is like a smooth airplane ride without bumps ; suspense is the bounce on landing. Easy to read and follow, simple plot, no fancy language, though suggestive sex scenes would make it inappropriate for young readers.
  • Cute and cleverly written

    A cute and funny mystery story. Daisy is crazy (lol), just kidding. She's funny, quirky, and a bit of a nosy control freak. Jake is really loving and tolerant and an overall great guy. Not sure why his first wife let him get away. The kids are really well behaved and smart especially since I never 'seen' her actually teach them anything. Enjoyed the secondary characters and learning some of their quirks.
