"It's not easy to make people laugh while they're on the edge of their seats, but Lourey pulls it off...in her very clever series!"―Booklist (starred review)
November in Battle Lake, Minnesota, is cold enough to freeze the balls off a pool table. lt's also deer hunting season. When Tom Kicker is killed in a hunting accident, Mira James is hired to investigate―a job that brings her closer to her P.I. license.
Braving subzero temps and shrieking blizzards, Mira uncovers a decades-old scandal that has never quite died, unlike the cold stiffs who are piling up in the town morgue. As she pieces together the clues, Mira discovers that Battle Lake's good-old boys have been up to some bad business. But with threats and enemies around every icy corner, she may not live long enough to expose the truth.
November Hunt is perfect for readers who love to escape into the humorous mysteries of Gina LaManna, Joanne Fluke, Janet Evanovich, Denise Grover Swank, Jana DeLeon, and Stephanie Bond. Or, if you love to laugh while reading a heart-pounding mystery, then this series is for you!

Set in Battle Lake, Minn., Lourey's seventh cozy featuring PI wannabe Mira James (after 2011's October Fest) successfully combines humor, an intriguing mystery, and quirky smalltown characters. Mira, who supports herself by work at the local library and as a food columnist for the community newspaper, welcomes the chance to investigate the death of Tom Kicker, a prominent businessman who was shot in a hunting accident, in return for a significant fee and much needed experience. Mira's sleuthing is the epitome of amateurish, but Lourey manages to make her awkward efforts endearing rather than embarrassing. The author also deftly presents a dark possible motive for Tom's death without introducing a jarring note. Providing support and comic relief is Peggy McMillian, whose inspirational aphorisms ("Don't give the Devil a ride and expect him to wear his seatbelt") have been collected in a book titled A Penance for Your Thoughts.
