Earlene Fowler does not disappoint with this next adventure of Benni Harper. I have enjoyed watching the characters develop through the series. You feel you know each and every member of Benni's extended family. It is always nice to have an inside track with the police chief as your husband!

I have read 13 of the 14 Benni Harper series in the last three weeks. I just love Earlene's writings. I only have one more and will have to wait until next year for next and continuing saga of Benni & Gabe.

This installment in the Bennie Harper series is absolutely wonderful. The continuing saga of Bennie and Gabe, Emory and Elvia, and Dove and Issac is fantastic. I LOVE these characters! I hope the series continues for a long time to come. Bring it on Earlene!

As a child, Benni Harper of San Celina, California spent summers with relatives living in Sugartime, Arkansas. Benni has always looked back fondly to those days and hopes to recapture much of that feeling with her first visit in over a decade.

The hot issue in Sugartime is the close mayoral race between a Black woman and a good ole boy. Benni is stunned to observe the bigotry that is blatant and hostile. The current mayor¿s son Toby Hunter leads a force intimidating anyone opposing the reelection of his father. This eventually forces his opponent Amen to withdraw from the race. Not long afterward, someone murders Toby and though he had a lot of enemies, the police lean towards Amen¿s nephew as the prime suspect. In spite of the objection of the local authorities, Benni begins her own inquiries into the homicide.

Reading ARKANSAS TRAVELER is an accurate account of a divided community still unable to come to grips on racial harmony even as individuals have moved forward for the betterment of everyone. A Benni Harper mystery is always fun as readers revisit characters from the previous novels who are friends that keep growing as happens in this story. With her marriage still strong to Ortiz, the audience sees a glimpse of the heroine¿s past inside an enjoyable who-done-it.
