Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peaches and creamed
Small-town Georgia librarian Aurora "Roe" Teagarden may be petite in stature, but her backbone is pure steel, and she knows what top do even in the most unnerving of situations. . .such as when she finds her stepsister-in-law dead on the kitchen floor.
Roe had come to give Poppy Queensland a good tongue-lashing after the woman did not appear for her induction into the prestigious Uppity Women Book Club. Instead, Aurora found Poppy's cold body, and knew she probably didn't have to look far for a motive: both Poppy and her husband were involved in indiscreet extramarital affairs.
But despite the scandalous and sordid details that start unfolding, Aurora — between planning a Thanksgiving dinner to impress her boyfriend's mother and getting acquainted with her runaway teenage half brother — begins to suspect the real reason Poppy was done to death had nothing to do with passion, but rather the cold, merciless intent of a social-climbing killer.

Review:

"Well-established characters. . .wry humor, and small-town busybodies solidify the plot of this delightful cozy." Library Journal
