Kurzbeschreibung

Mira James never imagined life after college would be a doublewide trailer outside Battle Lake, Minnesota. Then again, maybe the North Country has more to offer than mosquitoes and broasted chicken.

Local legend claims that a diamond necklace was lost nearly a century ago in Whiskey Lake, not far from the present day Shangri-La resort. Mira, a part-time reporter, goes fishing for the story behind the legend, but her dives turn up more than missing jewelry. Buoyed by frozen Nut Goodies and a diminutive circus performer, the exhilarating search leads to a new mystery to unravel, and puts her face to face with the surfacing of a menacing foe from her past.

Synopsis

When she stumbles across a waterlogged corpse while looking into a local legend about a diamond necklace lost in a nearby lake, part-time reporter Mira James is determined to solve the crime.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A New One for Your TBR Pile 26. April 2007
Von Joanna Campbell Slan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Jess Lourey populates June Bug with sharply etched characters so vivid you'd recognize them on the street. Her protagonist Mira James is a gem of a heroine: she's a magnet for stray flying objects, she's addicted to Nut Goodies, and her wry observations on life abound with atypical honesty. When Mira learns there's a big diamond at the bottom of a local lake--and a fake diamond offered as a contest prize--she straps on diving gear and gamely goes forth to explore. But the clear lake water hides murky intents. She tangles with an unusual underwater hazard--and nearly loses her life. It's no surprise that Mira's not the only person interested in the loot. Larceny and licentiousness abound, and Mira's put herself squarely in harm's way.

Lourey's Mira is a clever girl, down on her luck, but plucky and resourceful. She goes through life fully engaged. Her observations both tickle and resonate. For example, "Actually I always wondered who had the energy to write on bathroom walls. Now I knew. It was people on bad dates." Say "Amen," Sister.

The Minnesota Department of Tourism either has a bounty on Lourey's head or added her to their payroll. She writes, "Minnesota is an incredible place to live, but we natives learn at a very young age that for this privilege we must pay a tithe, usually in blood...A summer day spent in the shallow, still part of the lake results in a chocolate-chip-shaped leech nesting between our peas-in-a-pod toes." Yuck! Lourey's clever pen captures such local gastronomic specialties as field-drinking, five-meat hotdishes, Tiger Pops, tuna surprise, Hamm's sky-blue waters, and barbecued spiced bananas. Mira moans that even the desserts feature cream of mushroom soup. Clearly, this book shouldn't be shelved with a Zagat's Guide.

But June Bug does deserve a spot on your "to be read" pile. Lourey delights and dazzles, making us eager to see what's on tap for July.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Done it again! 20. Februar 2007
Von Holly Hassel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Lourey's dynamite follow-up to her debut mystery, "May Day" keeps the fresh, sassy voice of her heroine and adds new high jinks, enigmas, and zany side characters. Mira James continues to pass the summer in small town Battle Lake, MN, and in this new installment, of course, a new mystery presents itself along with undesirables from her past and some current favorites from her present. Along the way, she manages to engage in some soul-searching and introspection, which is one of the ways Lourey keeps this series and this protagonist grounded in verisimilitude, especially when contrasted with some of her cartoonish mystery counterparts. Fun and funny, Lourey's mysteries always keep me turning the pages and laughing out loud!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Move Over Stephanie Plum! 3. April 2007
Von Editor, Author, Publicist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
JUNE BUG by Jess Lourey

Thank you, Jess Lourey! All of you ladies starved for another great chick-lit series, get out your pocketbooks! One has arrived and how! Jess Lourey, author of the new Murder-by-Month Series starring Mira James is a juicy, light-hearted, smart, witty and a bit saucy set of books that will leave you begging for more! Stephanie Plum is off in a closet somewhere (hopefully with Ranger) and Kinsey Milhone is in absentia. But never fear, Mira will take you where you want to go! These books are terrific. I simply cannot say enough. The writing is better than either of the aforementioned, the setting - mostly - is Battle Lake, a rural lake town in Minnesota and the characters are just wacky and sinister enough to drive the plots. This series is the next smash hit, so get in on it now and don't miss May Day, Knee High by the 4h of July, which hits the bookshelves in September and in March, August Moon will be available.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't even finish it 7. Juni 2011
Von Ruth H - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I couldn't even get halfway through this book. In fact, I probably only read the first 4 or 5 chapters, that's how bad it was. I very quickly tired of reading again and again how hot she was for the gardener and how much she lusted for him and how she was going to "get her vibrator out of retirement" for him. Ugh. TMI for sure. After her near-drowning, she also repeatedly reminds us that her throat was sore from vomiting. Again, ugh. Stop talking about puking, I really don't need that mental picture over and over. And I was unnecessarily annoyed by the character who, despite stating she was from New York, was twice referred to as having a "Jersey" accent. (Being from NJ, this bothers me to no end!)

All this irritating filler didn't add much to the story. She goes to the library, she gets coffee, she pulls weeds in the garden, she thinks about her parents, the mean guy bullies her - and speaking of the mean guy, I agree 100% with the reviewer who wondered why she didn't CHANGE HER LOCKS after this guy broke into her house and GOT INTO BED WITH HER for pete's sake - all this filler, and the plot didn't seem to be moving. I gave up.

Even priced at $0.00, this book wasn't worth reading.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Doesn't make a lick of sense 27. August 2007
Von Linda Jean Oleary - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
What the...?

1. Mira is surprised when a man who is practically a stranger to her and who almost sexually assaulted her years before, climbs into her bed in the middle of the night, thinking she is someone else. Understandably she is frightened, but WHAT does she do? She piles cans up in front of her door at night to alert her to an intruder, and orders a stun gun on the Internet. She also contemplates sleeping under stuff in an extra room because "he wouldn't look for me there". I am amazed she doesn't think of -DUH- changing the locks!

2. Mira thinks the diamond is in a room at the "Shang-ri-la" Inn and intends to search the room. WHY would she feel justified in sneaking around and trespassing on private property just to satisfy her curiosity?

I had to stop reading this silly book before I finished it. Although I enjoy "light" reading as much as the next person, this book was the equivalent of a helium balloon.

two cups of graham crackers, one cup of powdered sugar, two tablespoons cocoa, one cup of chopped nuts, a quarter cup coconut syrup, a quarter cup brandy, and shredded coconut. You stick it all in a bowl except for the coconut, mix it up, and roll it in the coconut shreds. Voila! Snowman's balls. &quote;

To prepare these, one peels a banana and places it in double-thickness heavy-duty aluminum foil. Then, one brushes it with lemon juice, sprinkles it generously with brown sugar, dusts it with cinnamon or nutmeg, and dots it with margarine. Finally, the tin foil is puckered tightly around this tropical surprise, which is then placed on the grill for seven to eight minutes. &quote;
