Overview

Sixty-something Southerner MacLaren Yarbrough keeps busy as a county magistrate, a co-owner of Yarbrough’s Feed, Seed and Nursery, and a loving wife and mother.  But her penchant for snooping around in other people’s business often lands her up to her neck in murder…

 

In Hopemore, Georgia, good ol’ boy Skye MacDonald lives life large––as a dedicated family man, back-slapping civic leader, and flamboyantly successful owner of a local automobile empire.  Very little happens in this cozy town without Skye’s full knowledge and participation.  So the whole community is shocked when his body is found in a muddy road, run over by his own car.

 

Judge MacLaren Yarbrough and her husband, Joe Riddley, have known the MacDonalds for years.  So they can’t help but get involved in this baffling murder investigation, especially when it produces more questions than answers: Why has Skye’s son skipped town?  How many secrets was Skye keeping?  And…

    enjoyable amateur sleuth cozy

    The quiet town of Hopemore, Georgia is the home of local Court magistrate Judge MacLaren Yarbrough, part owner of Yarbrough¿s Feed, Seed and Nursery. She counts her blessings especially when it comes to her husband Joe Riddley who is recovering nicely from a head wound that almost killed him. Her next door neighbor Maynard is getting married soon and he has bought himself a BMW, one that he intends to keep no matter that Skell Macdonald is offering him a fantastic deal to buy it back. Shortly after Maynard and his bride go on their honeymoon, Skell disappears. At the same time, Skell¿s father Sky, a popular civic-minded town leader is run over by his own car. While the family grieves, the honeymooners are arrested in Orlando for transporting drugs. The police chief and MacLaren feel Skell knows something about this but the magistrate doesn¿t believe the missing man could have killed his father. She starts her own investigation and almost gets killed by a murderer who has nothing left to lose. WHO LEFT THAT BODY IN THE RAIN? is an amateur sleuth cozy in which all the violence takes place outside of the pages of the book. There is no blood and gore but there is plenty of thrills and excitement as the sixty-something sleuth uncovers a host of buried secrets and a surplus of suspects. Readers who are fans of Carolyn Hart and Kate Kingsbury will want to buy Patricia Sprinkle¿s latest and that will lead to desiring the author¿s previous mysteries. Harriet Klausner
