Cozy Mystery Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: Death at the Black Bull (Sheriff Virgil Dalton Mystery) by Frank Hayes

Hayward is a sleepy Southwestern town full of cattle, trucks, and tumbleweeds. Virgil Dalton’s been the sheriff for over a dozen years and has lived there all his life. It’s a place where everybody pretty much knows everybody—but they don’t know each other’s secrets…

Buddy Hinton is just a good ole boy. So when he disappears after a night drinking at the Black Bull, his friends just figure he went down to Mexico to find himself a girlfriend and eventually will come back. But this case quickly becomes a homicide after the sheriff discovers the missing man floating in one of his stock tanks.

For a man who wasn’t known to have enemies, Buddy clearly upset someone. Figuring out who that was will require Virgil and his deputy, Jimmy, to retrace Buddy’s last steps—and to remain a step ahead of a murderer who may have no qualms about killing again.

Ooo a main character that's a male.  That right there... made me happy.  It was so nice for a change!  I REALLY enjoyed visiting Hayward and it's residents.  I especially loved Virgil and Jimmy.  What a great pairing!  They are two very well written, very fun characters with great chemistry.  I really liked following them through their process of solving this exciting mystery!  

This was my first book by Frank Hayes, but it most definitely will not be my last! :)
