This is book #4 in Secrets of the South Mysteries. I’ve enjoyed them all, but this one is my favorite so far. And the good news is, you really don’t need to read these in order. They do fine as stand alone books. Here’s my reviews of this series:
Midnight on the Mississippi – book 1
What Happened on Beale Street – book 2
Magnolia Moonlight – book 3
While all the characters in this series have been people with faults and backgrounds, warts and scars, this one stuck out to me. Mary Ellis, through a fun read of who-done-it that kept me guessing to the end, shows the workings of grace in this novel. It’s not slap-you-in-the-head-with-the-Bible preachy, not even close, but it’s touching and heart-warming. Well worth reading. Pick up a copy!
