October Fest by Jess Lourey
"Snappy jokes...edgy dialog...and the classic romance setup enhance a clever plot...get started on this Lefty-nominated series if you've previously missed it!" ―Library Journal (starred review) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
There's big trouble brewing in little Battle Lake...
Beer and polka music reign supreme at October Fest, Battle Lake's premier fall festival. To kick off the celebrations, the town hosts a public debate between the two congressional candidates: straight-laced Arnold Swydecker, and slippery incumbent, Sarah Glokkmann.
As a reporter for the Battle Lake Recall, Mira James is roped into writing up the word war. But the festive mood sours when a visiting blogger is found dead...and one of the candidates also meets a gruesome fate.
To keep the heat off her best friend's fiancé―an ex-con reporter―Mira wades through the candidates' dirty laundry, their unsavory secrets, and some murderous mudslinging to expose the killer.
October Fest is the sixth in a series of laugh-out-loud-funny romcom mysteries featuring Mira James, an urban woman with rural Minnesota roots. The books can be read in any order; each novel stands alone.
