  • Butterscotch Jones is a young woman with secrets who moves to the back of beyond in Canada, to a town where almost everyone has red hair and lot of secrets of their own. Butterscotch and her wolf-dog find a plane filled with cash, jewels, bonds, and a dead pilot. A Mountie who has pissed of his boss gets sent to investigate. This was a surprisingly good read. The characters are interesting and mostly likeable, the settings well-described (I felt like I was trying to navigate next to Butterscotch [...]


  • I thought this was an original idea for a mystery--a town in the far north of Canada full of quirky characters, some of whom have a murky past. This first entry in the series was short (only 105 pages in my nook edition), but packed in a lot of action and character development. I have definitely found a new author to read.


  • Another series by the prolific Melanie Jackson. This one is set in McIntyre's Gulch, Manitoba, Canada. Everyone in the timy town is named McIntyre or Jones and has red hair. A plane crashes on a frozen lake in winter and the treasure inside the plane soon attracts both the RCMP and the Russian Mafia. For a town built upon isolation and secrecy, no one is welcome. Quirky and a fun casual read.


  • I loved this! In fact I was shocked that an American had written it, given it takes place in Canada. Except for a couple of things, she wrote "Canadian" very well and it was quirky and fun to read about a remote localeI will be reading all the othersch fun!


  • Butterscotch Jones lives in McIntyre's Gulch, Canada, where no one is really who they seem but since they all have secrets, they just let everyone beuntil Jones and her wolf-dog come across a plane crash site, complete with duffel bags of loot and a dead body. The town considers not even reporting the crash to the next biggest town just so they can a)keep the treasure, and b) avoid the authoritiesbut the report it, and when the RCMP show up, the Russian mafia isn't far behind.


  • Good, easy read I enjoyed reading this book. Wasn't too long in length. Read the full story in around 2 hours. I,myself guessing it's kind of a thriller.


  • Fast readIt's a fast read. Enjoyable, pleasant. I read it in 1 day. Would be willing to read another in the series


  • First book in series and first book I have read by this author. Found it very entertaining and would recommend.


  • Butterscotch makes mysteries fun!A great new series! I was so excited to have found this series about a girl named Butterscotch living in a very isolated, very cold town. I love books that involve lots of snow and mysteries. This series also makes the mysteries come alive with bits of humor, which I also love. I look forward to reading more of this series so I hope the books keep coming.


  • The best self-published book I've read to date and an excellent example of the importance of world-building in a realistic, nonfantasy/scifi story. "Due North is set in the remote Canadian town of McIntyre's Gulch. We're talking remote in a not- everybody-has-a-phone-or-even-a-radio-connection-to-the-outside-world remote. In a you-might-not- see-your-neighbors-for-a-few-days-during-a-snowstorm remote. In a there-are-only-two-church- services-a-month-when-a-person-of-the-cloth-comes-by remote. Th [...]


  • CuteI enjoyed reading this book, my first by this author. Good command of the English language, clever plotting and characterization, great on atmosphere and sense of place, and some cute bits such as some of the Russian mafia having endearing qualities. Loved Max, the wolfdog. The ending seemed somewhat contrived, abrupt and too convenient. But all in all, a happy ending.


  • Interesting charactersI love the main character's name and found the supporting characters and the town of McIntyre's Gulch to be intriguing. This has the potential for becoming a great series, however the beginning leaves me somewhat dissatisfied and is rather predictable. There are several significant errors that a good proofreader should have caught, but that aside, I'll be interested to see what the author does with these characters.


  • Loved it. It read like a cross between Carl Hiaason and Dana Stabenow. I find the fact that it is an indie, self-published book amazing. Just goes to prove there are some really talented people out there. Respect.


  • Melanie Jackson writes novella length stories that are charming examples of the cosy mystery. This Butterscotch Jones series has a bit of a darker edge, but is still strong on characterisation and Jackson's effortlessly readable style. I immediately bought the next in the series.


  • Loved it!!I really,, really liked this book. I liked the quirky characters, the strange little town, and the story plot. Can't think of anything I didn't like. Can't wait to read the second book. So happy I found this author.



  • Refreshingly well written. The cast of characters are quirky but not silly and the protagonists are, thankfully, not experts in any and everything. Great humor and an enjoyable read. Recommended.


  • Great bookIt was a quick read. The characters were colorful. I love a happy ending. I look forward to reading more Melanie Jackson books.


  • Butterscotch Jones book 1Quirky Canadian snow covered mystery. Lots of intrigue, laughs and adventure. Oh, and a really big wolf/dog! I can't wait to read more!


  • Sometimes it's nice to just suspend disbelief and enjoy the tale. This is about a small community in the woods of Manitoba and how they pull together to defeat agents of the Russian mafia.


  • DifferentIt was a little hard in the beginning to get into this book but it became clear as usual continue reading. I like butterscotch and her town of quirky misfits
