Description

Life in Stone's Throw, South Carolina is usually very quiet, but when a childlike old woman calling herself Shirley shows up on Lucy's doorstep looking for her mama, the little town is turned on its head. Lucy and her friend Ellis suspect that the woman could be Ellis's cousin who disappeared more than fifty years ago. But before they can find out, the woman/child disappears--and a local woman is found dead. Luckily, guardian angel Augusta Goodnight shows up to calm Lucy's nerves (with a basket of strawberry muffins)--not a moment too soon, because Shirley has been found dead behind the Methodist church, and Ellis is the number-one suspect! The Thursday Morning Literary Society (which now meets on Monday afternoons) must use their heads--and a little bit of home cooking--to solve the mystery.show more
