Beautiful and kind, eighteen-year-old Prentice Blair was well-loved in the community. Who would have reason to take the life of this popular young woman with such a promising future?
When Prentice disappears from her summer job at the Peach Shed and is later found murdered, Miss Dimple Kilpatrick and her fellow amateur sleuths are determined to learn the truth behind the crime that has shocked and alarmed the small town of Elderberry.
Could there be a connection to Prentice's murder and the recent death of Leola Parker, the adored friend and housekeeper who had helped raise her?
Her longtime boyfriend, Clay Jarrett, bitter after Prentice refused his proposal, claims innocence, while reluctantly admitting that Prentice had confided to him a shocking secret. Hattie McGee swears she witnessed the abduction at the Peach Shed. She also believes she is Scarlett O'Hara; that Nazi spies are pursuing her, and she knows the location of the Confederate gold.
With war still raging in Europe and the Pacific, local townspeople deal with the constant threat of loss as their loved ones fight on foreign soil, as well as the ongoing sacrifices and rationing on the home front. But the killer doesn't reckon with Miss Dimple Kilpatrick who remembers the victim as one of her own "rosebud-like" first-graders, and is determined to see that justice is served.
Great gift for your mystery lover!
