MISS DIMPLE PICKS A PECK OF TROUBLE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth, Historical
There are too many voices in this novel and it's easy for readers to forget who's who, as each chapter has three to five individual narrators giving their side of the story. Perhaps if Miss Dimple was the sole narrator this tale would have moved more fluidly.
In the midst of the war in 1944, the women of Elderberry, Ga., eagerly await news from their husbands, brothers and sons, but are thwarted by several murders and deaths in their towns. The victims range from a promising college student to a crazed woman who believes Nazis are after her. While the police conduct their own investigation, former teacher Miss Dimple works with family members and friends of the victims to find the killer — or killers.
