A place, “where,” according to Husom, “bad guys demonstrate not everyone is ‘Minnesota Nice.’”
Husom also penned the Winnebago County Mysteries. A series of murder mysteries highlighting the procedural techniques of Sergeant Corinne “Corky” Aleckson and Detective Elton “Smoke” Dawes. With her most recent addition to the Winnebago County Mystery series: Death to the Dealers, she was honored to be a finalist in the Midwest Book Awards. Reviewers have described her latest work, Death to the Dealers as a “well-written, masterfully-plotted, and page-turning tale.”
