Overview

A quintessential Malice Domestic murder mystery, this novel features the recently retired Judge Godbold who has signed on for a three-week writers conference at a small college in Kentucky. An avid amateur poet, she hopes to gain valuable tips from guest poet Diane Marvel. Baby, as the judge is known to friends, finds at the conference her friend and doctor Moss Cunningham, who is trying to write a family history and is therefore to be mentored by Harold Hillman, a last minute substitute for another writer. The two friends are to be in rooms at the old Toll House, an early 19th century structure owned by the college and used for conferences. Also on the property are several cottages for those who wish for privacy. This includes a rough fellow and owner of a gym, Rafe Barlow, who is there because of Diane Marvel, even though she is married to her publisher. Baby, rising early the first morning, stumbles upon the body of a social worker from Nashville, who has been inexplicably murdered. Then another murder takes place in the old bell tower. The question is how were these two connected? It takes all of Judge Godbold’s talents to pierce the secret that drove a conference attendee to murder,

Meet the Author

A fourth generation descendent of Scandinavian pioneers to Iowa, I have sandwiched my writing into a busy life as a wife, mother of three boys, journalist, Arts Council Director, and more recently, college teacher. Along with my ten published e-novels, I have both poetry and short stories in literary journals and other publications. Since the 1960s I have been a resident primarily of Tennessee with a brief sojourn in Texas. My writing in earnest began with a suggestion from a geologist friend, who had an idea for a thriller: thus, The Moho Proviso became a reality, recognized by the Nashville Tennessean for its timeliness. I joined the Writers Group at the college where I worked and have continued to produce novels in the various genres, including my new Foxhill series with the first book in that series, Flowers at Her Feet, set in a fictional historic district in Nashville. This was followed by Neighbors and a third novel Ever After. I like to think, though, that whether my work is a thriller, mystery, or coming-of-age, the protagonists share the same intentions to do the right thing in the face of various kinds of conflict and trouble that they either stumble upon or that assails them.

I can be reached at as well as on Facebook. Also, I have a blog: www.scandiasouth.blogspot.com and a Website: which I hope you'll visit.

    A bit of a snooze

    I had a hard time getting into the story. It's well written but the story moves a bit too slowly for my taste. I didn't finish it.

    Slow Reading but average in delivery

    The storyline is tedious and at times unfocused. It took me a while to read although there was an average volume of pages. Characters were also not well developed. While the heroine pursues an investigation, it is sometimes hard to keep track of various roles. The author centers story around Judge "baby" Godbold. There are not any unexpected twists. So I would rate this as an 'average' mystery.
