(2011)
(The sixth book in the Ellie Avery Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
Super-organized Ellie Avery thinks she's prepared for everything when she and her family set off for an extended visit with her in-laws - clothes, books, and enough games and toys to entertain two stir-crazy kids on a six-hour drive. But the one thing she hasn't planned for is cold-blooded murder...As soon as Ellie and her husband, Mitch, arrive at his parents' gracious home in Smarr, Alabama, they are shocked to learn that Mitch's Grandpa Fanklin has passed away. More shockingly, a too-quickly-closed police investigation raises more questions about Franklin's death than it answers. As the quirky, extended Avery family clan closes ranks around their own, she realizes that quite a few relatives stood to profit from Franklin's passing, and she can't help looking for motives among the mourners. When a little more sleuthing reveals Franklin's mysterious ties to a famous, reclusive local author whose writings are worth megabucks, something doesn't sit right with Ellie...and it's not just the homemade grits. As genteel Southern tradition collides with greedy and possibly murderous passions, another disturbing death confirms Ellie's suspicions. With Alabama's biggest book festival fast approaching, she sees danger brewing faster than sweet tea. Who can she trust? Looking over her shoulder for a killer who's definitely onto her, Ellie needs to act fast if she wants to save her family...and herself!
