Murder in Dahlonega by Deborah Malone

Deborah Malone has worked as a freelance writer and photographer since 2001, for the historical magazine “Georgia Backroads.” Her writing is also featured in “Tales of the Rails,” edited by Olin Jackson. A member of the Georgia’s Writers Association and of American Christian Fiction Writers, she has an established blog, Butterfly Journey, where she reviews Christian fiction. You can visit Deborah at her website.




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?

From Jo
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.

  3. Hi Loree and Pam,
    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Loree I really do write historical articles for the magazine "Georgia Backroads" and I've really enjoyed doing so for the past ten years. The best part is the research and meeting the people I interview for the articles. Pam thank you for being so loyal and keeping up with my blog. I have a great group of followers.
