Description:

It's November in Pecan Bayou, Texas and while the town is getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday a deadly fire breaks out at the newspaper office. When Rocky, the editor is nowhere to be found, Betsy refuses to believe he has perished in the fire. The entire town is coming down with the stomach flu and Betsy must deal with her husband's new found celebrity as an on-air weatherman filling in for and under-the-weather Hurricane Hal . Leo loves all the attention he's getting, especially from the sexy administrative assistant who works at the station. Is their new marriage in trouble already? Find out in the fifth book of the Pecan Bayou Mystery Series. All the characters you've come to know and love are back and you'll find plenty of the Happy Hinter's recipes and tips included at the end of the book.

My Thoughts:

In this book we follow Betsy who works at the Pecan Bayou Gazette that is until someone decides to burn it down.  Now Betsy is determined with the help of her cop father to find out where Rocky the editor is and if he died in the fire.

Also a flu is running rampid first hitting Betsy's son Zach, then about half the town including local weatherman Hurricane Hal.  Betsy's husband Leo has been called in to fill in the weather spot until Hurricane Hal is back to work.   With that includes Leo spending time with the bottle blond Jeanette Burris who seems to be getting too comfortable with Leo.

Who is Jeanette Burris and what does she want with Leo?  And where is Rocky?  And who died in the fire?

This book was great I loved it.  I love the antics that Betsy comes up with when she tries to get to the bottom of things.  I loved watching her interact with her kids and her friends and family.  This book really grabbed and pulled me wanting to know what happened to certain characters.  I just enjoyed it so much!!
