October 30th's Waiting on Wednesday

After a couple of week off, I'm back with another Waiting on Wednesday.

This week's book is Second-Hand Stiff by Sue Ann Jaffairan.




This is the latest book in the Odelia Grey mystery series.  Odelia is a plus-sized middle age paralegal who just happens to find dead bodies everywhere she goes.  This time around, she's looking for a break from a hectic Thanksgiving when she goes with a cousin to a storage auction only to find a body in with all the goods being auctioned off.

I started reading this series back in 2009, and I really love it.  The books are filled with humor and fun while still packing good mysteries and some pretty well developed characters.

The book officially comes out December 8th, but most of the books from this publisher seem to arrive early.  I've got mine pre-ordered and I'm hoping to have it to read pretty close to the Thanksgiving setting.
