Blog Tour & Review: YANKEE TENACITY (Mayson-Dickson Mystery Series) by Jocie McKade

Yankee Tenacity (Mayson-Dickson Mystery Series)

Cozy Mystery

2nd in Series
Wrench & Quill (September 15, 2016)
Paperback: 216 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1537480329

Following the latest cryptic message that might lead them to the truth about their parents, Emme Mayson and Jackie Dickson are pulled into another murder investigation when a man dressed in a kilt falls from the sky onto their truck.

As if a dead body isn’t enough, FBI Special Agent Chris Meechum and sexy caretaker Sam Fender try to rein in their sleuthing, but the sisters are determined to solve this murder. Men in kilts, Renaissance Faires, and a few mobsters in all the wrong places complicate the case.

Emme Mayson is a Southern charmer from Alabama. Jackie Dickson is a straight-forward professional from Boston, they aren’t exactly a match made in heaven. The only thing keeping them from starting another war between the states is the mystery surrounding their parents, and their own lives.


When the lives of a stereotypical southern belle and a Boston bred Yankee cross, nobody is safe.  The two women have been thrown together with the belief that they are sisters - something that came up with the death of their parents and the involvement of federal agents trying to keep them safe. 
The bigger mystery is what were their parents involved in and why are they in danger now.  As they try to figure that out and follow leads, a man dressed in rather odd attire lands on their car. 

Emme and Jackie aren't too thrilled, but the FBI agent Meechum assigned to their case is even less thrilled.  Fender, who also is providing protection (but unknown to the women) also isn't thrilled.  Neither woman seems to get that the idea that being in witness protection means keeping a low profile. Southern or Yankee, they keep on. The Renaissance Faire adds a novel setting for organized crime and Zach's technological skills are impressive. 

As far as the dead body on the car, this can be read as a stand alone, but the history of how Jackie and Emme met is important. I'd recommend you start at the beginning with MAYSON DICKSON so you know all the players.  The mystery of whether they are really sisters and what their parents were into is still unsolved, so hopefully there will be a Book 3 in the future.
