“A real treat, highly recommended for its fine attention to both detail and the psyches of investigators who confront themselves as much as the threat at hand.” ~Midwest Book Review

“My life was saved by a murder. At the time, of course, I didn’t understand that. I just knew I was having the best year of my life. Given all the things that happened, I should be ashamed to say it, but that year was a blessing for me.” ??Abit Bradshaw

So begins this story of suspense and self-discovery set in the small mountain town of Laurel Falls, N.C. in 1985. After decades as a crime reporter in Washington, D.C., Della Kincaid thinks she’s moved away from all the violence. But a walk in the woods changes everything.

Interview with the Author
Q: What makes the Appalachian Mountain Mysteries Series so special?
A: In addition to the suspense of a good mystery, each book includes people and stories from the years I spent on my “back to the land” farm in Appalachia. You’ll meet a cantankerous laundromat owner who was just as weird as she’s portrayed, a gentle giant of a beekeeper with an abiding love for his family, and Cleva Hall, who’s based on a woman who taught me how to put food by. But especially Abit Bradshaw, one of the amateur sleuths along with Della Kincaid, a former journalist. Abit started in a supporting role, but I listened to my readers and gave him a starring role in the rest of the series. This book and the next–The Roads to Damascus–are coming-of-age stories for Abit.

Q: Why should readers give these books a try?
A: Readers who prefer suspense without over-the-top violence will enjoy this series. I write in the British style, where the dastardly deed is done off stage; (similar in that way to cozy mysteries). I don’t like mounting body bags, but I do enjoy the chase for justice. In addition to the crimes, readers will find vivid mountain settings, colorful characters, sharp wit, good food, and a touch of romance.

Q: In what order were the books written?
A:
A Life for a Life
The Roads to Damascus
Welcome the Little Children
Murder Ballad Blues
