Average Rating:
Rate this:
The author of Book Fair and Foul reconvenes the Ashton Corners book club to solve a murder in their own backyard . . . Bob Miller, retired police chief and member of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society, is stunned by the arrival of his twenty-one-year-old granddaughter, Darla, whom he has never seen. Bob has been estranged from his own daughter for decades and hopes to make up for his absence in Darla's life. But some of the ladies of the book club find their Southern hospitality strained as they question the motives behind this sudden reunion. After a dead man is found in Molly Mathews's backyard, their concerns grow more serious. Lizzie Turner saw Darla arguing with the stranger the day before, but when the police question her, Darla proves to be an unreliable narrator. It's up to the book club to uncover the real story . . . before another victim is written into the plot. Praise for the Aston Corners Book Club Mysteries 'Southern charm, excellent reading suggestions, and an engaging amateur sleuth.' Miranda James, New York Times bestselling author of the Cat in the Stacks Mysteries 'Books, cats, and a tenderhearted sleuth, a perfect combination!' Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author of the Domestic Diva Mysteries 'A terrific debut!' Mary Jane Maffini 'Readers should have high hopes for this series.' Avery Aames

I expected the author to pay homage to Lillian Jackson Braun when I saw the two Siamese cats on the cover. No such luck. These cats don't do anything. I found the 5 main characters to be pretty one dimensional...and they talk about Southern food a lot but this book contains no recipes.
