From the book’s back cover
A friendly adventure turns to murder and mayhem in the north Georgia mountains.
Historical writer Trixie Montgomery is asked to cover Gold Rush Days in the picturesque Georgia mountain town, Dahlonega. Trixie seizes the chance to mix business with pleasure and asks her best friend, Dee Dee to tag along.
Their well laid plans go awry when Dee Dee is discovered standing over the lifeless body of prominent citizen, John Tatum—the very man she’d had a run in with earlier that day—holding a bloody pickax in her hands.
Can Trixie find a way to finish her assignment and keep Dee Dee out of the slammer?
In this cozy mystery, Deborah Malone creates memorable characters—Trixie and Dee Dee. Those girls get easily into and out of full blown mischief as well as danger. Malone is good about dropping clues along the way, but not until the end did I really know who committed the murder in Dahlonega, GA. Hope we see more of Trixie and Dee Dee.
