Reviews of Mustard’s Last Stand
An endearingly quirky cast of characters and a humorous voice that’s sure to captivate, combined with a mission that both nature lovers and Don Quixote would celebrate, make Mustard’s Last Stand an absolute charmer! Don’t miss this fun debut.

A totally fun read. I enjoyed getting acquainted with all the characters (zany, lovable, quirks and all) and love the way the author mixes points to ponder in with nonstop plot surprises and humor that sometimes just “slaps you upside the head.” The book even comes with a “lagniappe” by way of a recipe for scones. New Jersey has Janet Evanovich; Idaho has Kathy McIntosh. I hope to meet up with the residents of Hancock again.

Proof Laughter is Good For You Beneath all of the crazy characters and their sometimes wild adventures lies a story with true heart and a valuable moral. There are plenty of laughs in this page turner and plenty of insights that keep the story fresh and memorable.

What a romp! A friend of the author lent me this book, wanting my opinion. The first night I read 1/3 of the book. The second night I finished the book. I couldn’t put it down! It is a little confusing at first, because so many characters are introduced, but I soon got them straight. Every character IS a character! I think it would make an excellent movie. It is a wonderful read.
I just ordered and sent a copy to a friend.

A UNEXPECTED GEM This is a great book! Wonderful outdoor mountain setting in Idaho with crazy/fun characters involved in interesting/hilarious situations. If you enjoy reading Carl Hiaasen’s books, definitely give this a try. Ed Mustard returns to his home town, Hancock, Idaho, feeling he is a screenwriting failure in California. Bringing his wife’s ashes with him (and talking to her/them frequently), he finds his brother, Ed, aka Roadkill, involved in trying to get their family ranch back from an eager to make a profit business owner intent on turning the ranch into “Camp Destiny” – a place where “hunters” can go to “hunt” wild game. Woven within the story are 4 pregnant women, a con-man/preacher, a drug addict, and a smart, very physically endowed woman intent on working in law enforcement. All of this creates a good story with serious issues yet funny situations. Looking forward to a second installment with more Mustards!

Imaginative, believable, and captivating Each character is portrayed as a believable person, and they all end up in unpredictable, funny circumstances. Kathy has a great imagination. It was hard to put the book down when it was time to go to sleep; I wanted to know what happened next. I’m looking forward to the next in the series.

Great Book I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Mustard’s Last Stand’. Kathy McIntosh has created a new series of books that leave me hungry for more. The cast of characters are unique and make me look forward to reading more about the residents of Hancock. Great book!

What a wild fun ride! Mustard’s Last Stand’s cover merely hints at the funny read inside. Set in a small town in northern Idaho, this novel brings together a wacky group of townspeople, a new “Safari Camp” and unwed mothers. I laughed out loud several times while reading–and this almost never happens. But I think what I enjoyed most about Mustard’s Last Stand is the wonderful interplay between Mustard–who’s returned to his hometown–and his brother, Roadkill!, ex-girlfriend and the rest of the townspeople. My only regret is that when this novel ended I couldn’t jump into the next one from this author.
Note: Mustard’s Last Stand comes down firmly on the side of environmentalists.
