Book Review: Choke by Kaye George

Sausage, a wannabe P.I., and murder--what do these three things have in common? They are the core elements of Kaye George's humorous murder mystery, Choke. Set in the fictional small town of Saltlick, Texas, Choke centers on Imogene Duckworthy, or Immy as her friends call her, a naive young woman whose greatest ambition is to become a private investigator. Armed with a copy of the Moron's Compleat P.I. Guidebook, Immy sets out to solve the lastest murder in Saltlick--the mysterious choking death by frozen sausage of her own uncle. When Immy and her mother, the eloquent Hortense, become the prime suspects, her investigation gets a little more difficult!

Kaye George does an excellent job of weaving humor and death into a fast paced read. With a fabulous and funny supporting cast of characters, it's easy to fall in love with Immy's endearing charm as she struggles to become independent from her superior mother and prove that she is worthy of being a real detective. It is Immy's "every woman" quality that keeps the reader engaged and the story moving. George has created a funny, carefully woven mystery that will have you in stitches with laughter and keep you wondering "who dunnit?" until the very end!
