    Visiting the small town of Sparrow Falls is always such fun, especially on the Fourth of July!

    This short story is a tightly woven mystery with plenty of clues and red herrings to keep the reader guessing, and even a few poignant moments thrown into the mix. I am looking forward to the next holiday's installement in this series.
