Christmas Eve, the night of the most prestigious event of the year in the tiny southern town of Sparrow Falls, North Carolina. Morwenna Goss, the mysterious story keeper of the old Scottish burying ground, invites guests to dine at the beautiful old family manor house.

Meet the Author

"It is my hope that every reader feels welcome here, among these people and within these stories, and always finds the Sparrow Falls books a comfy place to kick back, sip some iced tea, and puzzle through the mystery along with the intrepid Tilda and the irrepressible Addie. Trends come and go – that’s why they are called trends – but a solid mystery, interesting characters and enjoyable story lasts for generations.” — Donna McLean

Without the kindness and helpful nudging of her readers, it would never have been possible. Donna also blogs about and reviews clean mysteries on sparrowfallsmystery.wordpress.com.
