In Book One, we meet main characters of Eureka Truevine, aka Trinket, a 51 year old divorcee who just moved back to Cherry Hill to take care of her parents and her cousin Elisabeth Truevine Hollander age 52, aka Bitty, and recently divorced from her fourth husband Senator Hollander. We also get to see get the history of the area and the people, and great descriptions of a slice of southern small town living.
In this well-written murder mystery, the Senator ends up dead and police suspect Bitty. From an old family secret to a traitorous Diva, Trinket and Bitty manage to solve the mystery and find a bit of love just before they end up like the Senator. With the flavor of the Ya-Ya sisters and the Sweet Potato Queens, this contemporary, romantic mystery is a true southern delight. With lots of history about the area and descriptions of southern living and cooking, this story keeps the reader entertained and mystified until the end.
Review by Steve (hubby)
Storywise my only gripe would be a bit on the pacing. The sleuthing and action (though not the actual start of the mystery) did not really get going until almost 2/3 of the way into the book. Though that is a common problem of series introductions where no prior knowledge of characters or place can be drawn from. It did slow my getting "sucked into" the story, though the character development eased the pacing fault.
My biggest disappointment is in the formatting of the Kindle edition. There were no chapter markers or table of contents, something I often make use of if I forgot to sync across my devices before loosing wi-fi access. It was also riddled with lots of computer language that broke with the flow of reading, things like ""e" in place of quotation marks. It was especially distracting when it was in place of a hyphen that was no longer required due to text reflow. The formatting problems got worse as the book progressed.
If the formatting had been better I would likely have upped the score.
I may read the next book in the series, but not likely on my Kindle unless reviews indicate better care was taken in the formatting process. At price points above $5 I just can't overlook copious glaring errors like this.

Don't bother to read this book unless you are OK with endless pages of description, more pages devoted to antique house and history then "who dunit". Read morePublished 3 days ago by E. Ward
A fun read, really enjoyed it. The violence mentioned is because it is a murder mystery, so some would be expected. Can't wait to read the rest in the series.Published 1 month ago by SusieQ
