Shadow of an Angel(2002)
(The third book in the Augusta Goodnight series)
A novel by Mignon F Ballard
After the sudden death of her hushand, Minda Hobbs returns to Angel Heights, South Carolina, the home of her forebears, to seek peace and purpose in her life. Instead she finds her ne'er-do-well cousin, Otto, as cold and stiff as yesterday's grits, in the ladies' room of the historic Minerva Academy." "Shocked by her cousin's murder and still grieving over the loss of her husband, Minda has mixed emotions when she's greeted by her guardian angel, Augusta Goodnight. Shimmering with church-window radiance, and smelling of strawberry jam, Augusta is a temp who has come on a double mission - to help Minda solve Otto's murder and to take care of unfinished business from an assignment in 1916." Even though Otto could be unbearable at times, an annoying laugh is hardly cause for murder. Minda's only lead is a tiny gold pin found wedged in a bathroom stall at the Minerva Academy, and its connection to a club called the Mystic Six. Together, Minda and Augusta trace the descendants of this secret society, piecing together clues that lead to a special quilt and the mystery behind cousin Otto's unfortunate demise.
