Gore leaves DC chick lit behind and enters that mystical place, the Southern small town. Law school student Jiminy is at a crossroads and heads to small Fayeville, Mississippi and the quiet of her grandmother Willa's home. There, she uncovers a decades old secret about another young girl named Jiminy, daughter of her grandmother's longtime housekeeper and companion, Lyn Waters. The mystery of what happened in the 60's to Edward and Jiminy Waters isn't too hard to figure out, but there are some good twists along the way. An interesting addition to the story for me was the inclusion of the town's present day multicultural influx and how things haven't changed too much.
