Frankie Lou’s back and Poppy’s madder than a wet hen.
Create a church choir filled with teenage misfits?
Over Poppy’s dead body.
Minister’s daughter Frankie Lou McMasters has come back to Ruby Springs, Texas with her daughter, Betsy, eleven years after running off to marry the town bad boy. Her mild notoriety as a bad girl is prime gossip for her childhood enemy, Poppy Fremont, now choir director of Faith Community Church—where Frankie Lou’s daddy, now retired to Florida, was the preacher.
When Frankie Lou comes to the deacons with a request to add a youth choir of at-risk teens she’s been coaching, Poppy throws a fit. A few hours later, Frankie Lou finds her dead in the baptistery pool. And Poppy’s not playing possum.
Frankie Lou sets out to clear her name as the main suspect, and tries to locate the real killer. Could he be sexy Joe Camps, the father of one of her teen singers? In the meantime, her momma shows up from Florida to take charge of Frankie Lou’s life. Bless her heart.

A Fun Read. Frankie Lou returns home to find nothing has changed, including the animosity of a former classmate. When she ends up dead, guess who finds her? Guess who's the prime suspect? Poor Frankie Lou. With the help (and sometimes, interference) of her eccentric landlady, Frankie Lou sets out to find the killer. In the meantime, she's organizing a group of misfit teens into a choir. Lora Lee's voice is so distinctly southern with expressions that will have you laughing out loud. With well-drawn characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing, Ms. Lee writes a delightful story. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
