First there's the spectacular blaze that totals the antebellum home of genealogist Oliver Host. Then the appalling murder of librarian Estelle Carhart, a lady too softhearted even to collect fines for overdue books. Delia Cannon, a library volunteer and something of a genealogist herself, suspects a connection between the crimes and begins quietly to investigate. She doesn't yet realize that she already knows too much for her own good -- or that she and little Jesus Creek, Tennessee are in for trouble galore....

"An original sleuth, a delightful Southern setting . . ." D.R. Meredith

"Ms. Adams captures both the intricacy and style of a well-crafted classic mystery,
along with the comic elements of a truly Gothic Southern novel. In the process, she transcends both." ~~ Steven Womack

About the Author

A charter member of the Carroll County Historical Society, Deborah Adams is a seventh-generation Tennessean – at the very least. Her most notable ancestors are Captain Zaccheus Wilson (a signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence, a member of the Provincial Congress of North Carolina 1776, and a veteran of the Battle of Kings Mountain), and his twin brother Major David Wilson (Speaker of the House of Representatives for Territory South of the Ohio River, veteran of the Battle of Kings Mountain, and namesake of Wilson County, Tennessee). Her most interesting ancestor is Eliza Wilson Leach, who managed to get herself disowned by the wealthy Wilson clan, and who then gave birth to a daughter approximately six months after her marriage.

Someone is attacking the first families of Jesus Creek, Tennessee. First arson, then vandalism and murder. Can genealogist and first family descendant Delia Cannon figure out the motive and identify the culprit?I loved a lot of the elements of this story ¿ genealogy, libraries, a small town in my home state. I enjoyed the light banter between Delia and her Yankee boyfriend, Roger. I even identified with the unusually cold weather of the story, since I'm experiencing the same thing this week. I can usually spot red herrings, but I fell for one this time. However, I was distracted by a few annoyances along the way. For instance, Delia is described as 46 years old, yet she is a retired math teacher. I've heard of early retirement, but at 46? Seriously? Also, the book begins as Delia is returning home from a Thanksgiving visit with her daughter, the events span more than a week, and it's still November at the end of the book.Minor grievances aside, this was a fun, light read, perfectly suited for curling up with on a chilly winter evening.
