This was a very complex murder mystery with a lot of characters at play. The small town where everyone knows everyone else's business made the clues that much more surprising. But what makes this story is the language and the dialogue between the characters. This book is snort-in-public hilarious! The sheriff's point of view, as both an officer of the law and as a woman, has highs and lows that carry the story along. Any serious issues, such as infertility, loss of a parent, murder, animal cruelty, are lightened by the manner in which they are woven into the story. I totally enjoyed the mystery aspect because I was so easily led to the wrong conclusions only to be completely surprised at the end (I love surprise endings). And I find myself saying lines from this book under my breath because they are just too funny to not be incorporated into my vocabulary. I loved this story and recommend it to anyone that likes a mystery and enjoys a whole body laugh!

I am utterly enthralled. The first sign that this book was going to be a blinder, was the helpful pronunciation guide at the beginning, and then, not even two paragraphs into Chapter 1;

""scrubbin her little dipper and mudskipper with a washcloth"

Laugh? It was a freaking bray that resulted in tea exploding out of my nose at a great velocity and spattering my desk and tablet. Thank a deity that it is all "wipe clean" I was a'feared I would be needing a towelette at least for this book (see what I did there? So yes, if you are easily offended by slightly off the edge vernacular, then this is probably not the book for you, but everybody else, read on

Yer Kill'n me is centered on a couple, Wendy and Wendel, a scorching fire of a love story, until, well, things start to get a bit, odd. People start finding themselves unalived in the most inopportune times and our heroine Wendy jusmps into action to investigate, and trust me, this is one that will twist you into knots, spin you round and yeet you out the window on an infinite bungee. As soon as you can read the vernacular, the prose just fllies on a a thermal of hilarity, not letting you stop for breath until you turn the page and then more!

I think I laughed out loud on every page and my ribs absolutely ached by the end and OMG is right... but I am not telling, you will have to find out who the Murderer is yourself

A scorching belter of a book, absolutely recommend!

Thank you to Netgalley, Book Whisperer and the incredible author Sandy W Robson for splitting my sides with this hilarious murder mystery ARC. My review is very much given of my own volition and all opinions are my own

The book starts with windy, in her local nomenclature telling us about her getting ready for her sexaversery with her husband windell. Windell is the golden boy for the Pleasant County community in Wendy is the sheriff her Dad Bear used to be the sherif but he is now oRIPing in the Pleasant County Cemetery. Throughout the first chapter of the book we hear about Wendy and Windells sexaversery and it is written as I said in their local dialect for their mountain community and even though it is quite long and we even here I guess if you were a proficient Pleasant County resident it would be offensive because I was not and I didn’t hear not one body part named it mostly just made me laugh. I am still laughing writing this review at some point in the book we learn there is a thin line between love and hate and Windell isn’t the golden boy he claims to be and windy after 20 years his head enough. However even though Wendy is the sheriff it seems every time she tries to make away for her husband to accidentally get killed it happens to someone else and they die. I don’t want to give examples because these are some of the funniest NN one she gets an ex-con to help her with an alligator and that is just hilarious, especially when she finds out Wendell live through it because once again he comes off looking like the hero. The problem is in the fact these people who are accidentally electrocuted and eaten by an alligator are not the only people who die so someone else is out murdering people SheryffWendy and her crew have to find out who. Will Wendy ever be rid of her husband‘s fake public emotional please of love or is she doomed to endure them for the rest of her days? I thought the book about the elderly women by this author, was funny but this book takes the cake this is my kind of book it was right up my alley and I couldn’t get enough I can only hope the author is still riding because I want to continue reading her books a total five star funny fest. I want to thank book whisperer and Net Galley for my free arc copy please forgive any mistakes as I am blind and dictate my review.

Entertaining with a capital E!!! This is definitely not your usual mystery/thriller. Set in deep mountain country where this "speak" is authentic, the storyline and characters may seem a little too authentic for some but they put spice into Sheriff Wendy's investigations. Her methods take a round about road to solving the crime, but solve it she does. "Different" is a very good adjective for this story of an unusual sheriff solving cries in her unusual ways.

Well, this book was certainly not what I expected. But that is not a bad thing. I thought it would be your average murder mystery with clues that would lead you to the identity of the murderer sometime toward the end of the book. That is not at all what happened.. Well you do find out who the murderer is but there are multiple murders and multiple suspects and good guys and bad guys and... I just can't say anymore without giving it all away so if you want to be entertained and kept on your toes in every chapter, read this book. It's a doozie!
