I do not know specifically what it is about this series, but I cannot wait until a new one is out.  There is always a twist somewhere and the humor borders on politically incorrect at times, yet still, I find it to be one of the best series out there.

Deuce Winters is a reluctant private investigator that seems to stumble upon bodies in the most unlikely of places.  This time, the county fair and the freezer that his daughter’s 4H group is using.  As Deuce said, maybe he should just stop opening things.

Finding a body is bad enough but his wife is currently ten bazillion months pregnant and will do just about anything to deliver the beast that is currently taking up residency in her body.

With George Spellman’s body, pregnancy, an adorable six year old, a father that is just about the funniest character to come along in a long while, big business in town buying land, a fair committee that comes across as barely legitimate and a love triangle, poor Deuce is in for the hottest, and most frustrating, summer in Rose Petal Texas.

I love Jeffry Allen’s humor, his books are the perfect light read and with this one specifically, the perfect summer read.
