The other characters are folksy and for the most part portrayed as friendly and somewhat as bumbling hicks. I did like however that the group of men included "Red" who was obviously older and not in perfect health, who proved to be eloquent and compelling when speaking out for saving the library. Some of the other men didn't come off quite as intelligently.
There was also a group of ladies who were lead by Hattie, a nasty woman who thought she owned the town and the ladies who lived in it. I liked it when her "friend" Sandy stood up to Hattie and showed her true intelligence and loyalty to the town instead of Hattie.
I also liked the mention of Mercy's ex as for once there was no need to speak ill of him or cast him as a fool. I would say that the characters were treated fairly and with dignity. Even those I mention that were not necessarily presented as brain trusts were never looked down on or belittled in any way. I thought that was especially nice to feel a undercurrent of comradery.
The mystery was good and a surprise twist at the end kept it interesting to the very end. A fun first book in a new series that was given a little extra by including some recipes that could have been served at the diner. You won't want to miss this book.
This book is as close to small town America as you can get. Everyone knows everybody and everybody is in everyone else's business. In this book, a man is murdered during a tornado. At first, authorities assumed the tornado drove the stake through his heart but that theory gets thrown out really fast. The list of suspects is short and the sheriff and his girlfriend, local diner owner Mercy, hope to solve the murder quickly. There are a few plot twists and a side order of romance. An enjoyable read.
