I enjoyed the “fly on the wall” perspective into this community that has multiple stories cleverly intersecting into the masterful plot of finding-ahem!-Elvis! Duckett Delivered I, Where’s Elvis offers a snicker with every page as the highly developed cast of characters root around the story to find the missing element, and clues to what else might be going on inside Duckett County. Kim Lemen’s inventive story line and identifiable cast of characters lasso you into a world that is just far enough away for a chuckle, and the twists and turns in the plot keep us wanting to know what happens next for each of the characters. Ms. Lemen has created an epic story that will last for generations! Loved the book and look forward to seeing it on the big screen.

In remote Duckett County, Georgia, being “tetched” is normal since the gene selection comes from a blow-up wading pool. A buck is hard to come by, but the locals can be as resourceful as ticks on an armadillo. After all, upward mobility means moving from a single-wide to a double-wide.
When newcomer Jasmine Roseberry stumbles on the body part that the locals name “Elvis”, young Sheriff Todd “Fearless” McPherson ends up in the biggest pickle of his short career. The news vultures decend, and Todd’s deputies are making a muddle of things. Todd himself is having trouble keeping his head in the game because he has a biggy-sized crush on Jasmine. Meanwhile, Jasmine is discovering that the numbers aren’t adding up at her new job.
