I read very few series because I'm always wanting something different to read. However, this is one series that I always waited on the next book with great anticipation. The third and last book did NOT disappoint. I love the way the author brings history into the mystery. And the characters...they are so real while you're reading. This is a book that I actually would think about during the day when I wasn't reading it, and that's rare for me. This is probably my favorite of the trilogy. My only disappointment is that there aren't any more. But I'm ready to read whatever Stacy Green comes up with next!

With derechos and wildfires threatening the small town of Delta Crossroads, Stacy Green’s Ashes and Bone creates a rather scary view of the American South. It’s a place as beautiful and volatile as its history, with dark secrets behind the light and love of genuinely pleasing characters. And the novel’s an enjoyable blend of suspenseful romance and small-town mystery.
Third in the Delta Crossroads series, this novel welcomes readers back with familiar characters, yet stands alone with no overwhelming sense of missed storylines. History is an ever-present part of landscape and people, and presents itself beautifully through artifacts, real and fake, as Jaymee and Dani work on their renovated homes, keeping wildfire at bay while the fires of Southern beauty burn strong. But Jaymee’s betrothed, a reporter, has disappeared in a storm, and now the race is on to find what he was investigating and why, and to rescue him.
Will the wildfire’s “red dragon” catch Nick before his beloved? Will history’s more recent secrets overwhelm the present or the past? And can Nick, his first-person story pleasingly adding that sense of urgent need, still be found in time and saved?
From beautiful homes to original slave cabins, from Civil War bullets to Civil Rights movement and beyond, this novel pleasingly combines well-drawn history with present danger, thoughtful issues with appropriate romance, and a great cast of flawed and fascinating characters, to create a genuinely enjoyable read, fast-flowing, exciting, and fun.
Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy by the author and I offer my honest review, with my apologies for taking so long.
