Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the town of Tullulah, where Southern charm just got a whole lot deadlier...

Jane Thistle and Phoebe Twigg are as different as two best friends can be: Phoebe has never seen any reason to leave her small Alabama hometown, while Jane, once happily married to a career military officer, has traveled all over the world. But somehow, these two women, both of them widowed, always manage to make life in the slow lane a wild ride...

“Gutsy gals...paranormal twists...amusingly cozy.”—Kirkus Reviews

Yes, Tullulah can be a sleepy little town. But no one sleeps through the night a violent thunderstorm knocks down a tree on Janes property—one that uncovers a pile of skeletal remains beneath. Thanks to her travels, Jane happens to know a bit about archaeology, and has friends in high places. So she invites an archaeological expert to come over for a look...only to find that things in Tullulah are not at all as they seem. Now it's up to the town's superior senior sleuths Thistle and Twigg to dig up the truth.

“An entertaining and innovative series…brims with intelligence, humor, and insightfulness.” —Carolyn Hart, author of Dead Days of Summer
