Book 3--The 3rd Jolene Jackson Mystery
Revised eBook Edition, January 2013

No matter how hard she tries to escape her Texas roots--and her mother--Jolene Jackson finds herself dragged back to Kickapoo to deal with both.

This time, there’s an RV park going in behind Lucille’s house and they want her property too. She’s not selling and has joined up with a dubious group that just rolled into town to save lizards.

Protest rallies are underway, and with a naked lizard girl in a cage on the courthouse lawn, Jolene knows that quicker than you can say “I’ll have an ice tea with that chicken basket” things are about to get much worse.

Drill rigs and earth movers are at work in the mesquites behind the house and they aren’t making camper pads. The owner of the would-be-park land turns up missing, the leader of the lizard group turns up dead and there’s rabbit chow raining down on Main Street.

And when her own family skeletons start flying out of the closet, Jolene’s got to find out who’s after money, who’s after blood, and who has a deadly case of Turkey Ranch Road Rage.

NOTE: Turkey Ranch Road Rage and other Jolene Jackson Mysteries are only available in ebook formats, revised 2013.

Reviews for the Award-Winning Jolene Jackson Mystery Series

“Don’t mess with Texas! You’ll laugh your way from Kickapoo to Redwater Falls and back.” – Linda Huntley Wills, REDBOOK

“Anyone who enjoys the works of Janet Evanovich or Joan Hess is going to love Ms. Boyd.” – Toby Bromberg, Romantic Times

“…a terrific mystery, sharply drawn, cleverly plotted, dynamically presented, and pure sleuthing entertainment from first page to last.” – Wisconsin Bookwatch

“This is a wild ride with thrills, chills and laughs galore. Highly Recommended.” – Editor, I *Love* a Mystery

5 Stars and 5+ Laughs! Has to be film adapted. Would make a delightful audiobook. ” …a hoot and a half of rollicking good mystery! The best dang novel I’ve read all year!” – Leann Arndt, The Midwest Book Review

“Carl Hiaasen meets Texasville! …a must read for your Sherlock funny bone.” – Judi Clark, Mostly Fiction

“…makes for fast, fun summer reading.” – Nancy Cook-Senn, Shawnee Escort
“… comedic characters you’ll just love. …a humor you can’t resist. I can’t remember the last time that I read a book as light and refreshing as this.” – Pamela Stone, My Shelf

“This first entry of an apparent series will leave readers loudly laughing at the antics of Jolene and her mother. Hot Enough to Kill is a tongue-in-cheek look at relationships and amateur sleuthing. Still, the mystery has a character of its own that adds to a wonderful plot.” – Harriet Klausner

“Suffice to say this is a page turner. I predict you will enjoy it!” – Anne Thompson, Rocky Ford Daily Gazette

“If you’re looking for a laugh-a-minute mystery in the style of Joan Hess or Carl Hiaasen, run right out and buy this book. It’s as near perfect a comedy-mystery as you can find on the market today.” – Mary Welk, author of the award-winning Caroline Rhodes Mystery Series

“I had so much fun reading this that I hated to have it end. Paula Boyd writes with pure Texas humor, weaving together a good whodunit and providing a backdrop that won’t be forgotten. Hot Enough to Kill is a must read for your Sherlock funny bone.” – Judi Clark, MostlyFiction.com

“With an irreverent wit and an imagination that knows no bounds, she takes readers for a ride they won’t soon forget.” – Epinions.com

“There seems little doubt that Boyd will be compared most favorably to Hess and Evanovich.” – Doris Ann Norris, BookBrowser

“Boyd’s humor is wry and delightful, leaning a bit more towards the cozy end of the scale than Evanovich’s. …hilarious homespun – Texas – humor - mystery.” – Cathy Gallagher, About.com Mysteries
