Description

Everything can change … except murder.
In the television production world, a body brace is used to shift the weight of the camera to the operator's shoulder. This allows for smoother shots and reduces stress and tiredness. And, at the small-town Wyoming TV station KWMT, cameras are older and bulkier than those used in network news-gathering. Almost as old as some of the equipment used in a historical re-creation that draws Elizabeth and friends into another investigation. When there’s rumbling underfoot, a body brace helps keep what’s important in focus.

Body Brace, Book 10 of the Caught Dead in Wyoming series, is a smart, surprising, fast-paced cozy mystery with humor. If you like quirky characters, hints of romance and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s page-turner.

    Even though some changes occur this is an excellent book. In the developing romance between Elizabeth, Tom and Mike, I did not pick the way the author did. I guess that is the way each of us look at romance. But in this book Mike has gone to a job in Chicago. Tom has backed off because he places his daughter as being more important. So the relationship of dating between the three has changed. Read and learn. Now in this book with the romance triangle we have not one murder but two. What adds to the story is the twists of who will get what or why they were killed. Many secrets will come to light and they will surprise you. So of the gang Mike might not be there physically but he contributes but Tom is not really active in the mystery solving because I believe his being around Elizabeth is too much for him based on his feelings for her. I still have hope that Elizabeth will settle. I strongly recommend this book and the entire series as you will miss if you find this book but there is so much leading up to how the characters relate to each other. But you will enjoy the book and I look forward to the next in the series!
