Welcome the Little Children is the last book in the Appalachian Mountain Mystery series. Abit has graduated from The Hicks and is doing well for himself.

Then Della finds out that Astrid’s mother has disappeared. Using her investigative reporter skills, Della tries to find her. Along the way, Della is forced to fa ...more

This is my third sojourn with Abit and Della and, as usual, I enjoyed their company.

This time around, he's evolved into a strong, mature individual in his twenties; good at music and woodworking and t ...more

I was a little upset towards the end of this book, as the title caught my eye: Appalachian Trilogy. Trilogy—three: oh no! And this is the third book. I think I might cry.

He has a such a refreshingly straightforward outlook on life. Things are what they are. There's a clear divide between right and wrong. He's loyal, thoughtful, committed, stead

Great Ending to Trilogy About Friendship and Love

I read this trilogy over a few days, getting the next book right after finishing one. It’s the kind of series that flows. I’m going to miss the characters, the scenery, the friendships, and the music I’ve played as each song was mentioned. Thanks, Lynda McDaniel

I got my start as a writer in the most unlikely place--a town of 200 people in the mountains of North Carolina. But livin
