This dreadful piece of pop-fiction literally moved at glacial pace for almost the entire first half; a murder mystery w/o a murder. When it finally found its mystery it livened up and I made enjoyable progress (the only thing that rescued it from 1-star). And then it crashed back down to reality with a clunky & cliche 'reveal' that left me wondering how it ever got past the editor.

An old flame of MacLaren's show up in Hopemore stumping for his son who is running for political office. Fun read. Really enjoyed the characters.

I continue to enjoy this series and the people and situations that MacLaren comes across. When I read this series it is definitely with a southern accent. And I find myself laughing out loud at some of the descriptions.

An old fashioned mystery series, where we meet all the chacarters, someone dies, then spend the rest of the time figuring out who did it, with a "thoroughly southern" bent. Enjoyable distraction.
Mac's old boyfriend might be the killer in this book. It was a great read and to see how Mac gets herself out of this situation.

When I met and married Bob, he looked over our budget and demanded, "Why don’t you write a mystery to pay for all the ones you buy?" I immediately knew I wanted to put a body in a building where I’d once worked. However, being over-endowed with the Protestant ethic, I wrote "important" things first and only wrote the mystery in my spare time, so my first mystery, Murder
