From Publishers Weekly
MacRae's witty first of a new cozy series introduces bookstore owner Margaret Welch, who looks into the disturbing events--starting with poisoned pigeons and escalating to arson and murder--plaguing peaceful Stonewall, Tenn. When Margaret's elderly cousin and next-door neighbor, Leona, takes a shine to Gene Mashburn, the handsome new stranger in the Appalachian town, Margaret finds herself agreeing with Leona's good taste, in spite of her own reservations. On the other hand, Margaret's hangdog former beau, police sergeant George Buckles, and her proper sister, Bitsy, find Mashburn's arrival and the local calamities too closely related. That Mashburn was one of the partners of the murder victim, developer Doug "Duckie" Everett, in the plan to transform an old school into condos further fuels Bitsy and George's suspicions. MacRae (Wilder Rumors) keeps the reader guessing right up to Margaret's life-or-death struggle with the culprit. (Dec.)

"My Troubles" was my introduction to Margaret and Bitsy. I loved these short stories and was sorry to see them end. This led me to look further and I was glad to see there was more of Margaret and Bitsy in "Lawn Order." I just finished reading it and am glad I did. It was funny, sad at times. I loved the tidbits of history I learned about Tennessee.
I enjoyed getting to know the history of the characters, how Margaret and Gene met, the history behind the bookstore, cousin Leona's background, etc...
Molly MacRae never disappoints. I highly recommend "Lawn Order." If you are already a fan, you won't be disappointed. If you are not a fan yet, you will surely become one.
From the first page I was chuckling!! I dearly hope this author continues this series.
So great to find a well written, humorous mystery with characters you like (Margaret, Gene, Leona) and ones you willingly dislike (Bitsy).
Thank you, Molly MacRae. Please continue on!!
