The residents of tiny Park County, Tennessee plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day in style with a community fund raiser. Sheriff Tony Abernathy’s dream of a crime free county explodes, along with an illegal still. An underage driver, bar fights and the arrival of a popular young movie star with his entourage promises to keep his small staff busy.
Theo, Tony’s wife, is pulled away from her quilt shop by a phone call. Her best friend Nina is out of town and water is pouring from her house and over her ex-husband’s corpse.
The county chaos increases with another suspicious death, the arrival of some extra wives, exploding stills and Cupid leaving a trail of paper hearts.
About the Author
Barbara Graham has loved mysteries “forever” and wonders what could be more fun than making up people and killing them off. Legally. She began making up stories in the third grade. Being a “writer” sounds much better than being a “liar” but she considers the two words to be almost interchangeable. Born and mostly raised in the Texas Panhandle, she lived in Denver, New Orleans and East Tennessee before moving to Wyoming. Professional mom, ballet teacher and travel agent are jobs in the past. Her life is filled with family, books, quilts and a weed-infested garden.

This is a wonderful book from an outstanding series! I just discovered this author and have read all the available books. It details life in a small town in Tennessee right by the Smokies. The Sheriff Tony and his wife Theo, who owns a quilting shop, are the main protagonists. I simply love them both and their senses of humor. I can hardly wait for the next installment which will probably be a year or so. I highly recommend this series.
