A fun little read, full of personality and with a slight grin all the way through. The DAR angle is there but not overbearing, and the mystery is delightful.
This is one of those books that gets pushed to the bottom of most To be read piles. It is an older book written in 1992. I really thought the writing was solid. I kept thinking as i was reading, that this must be what some of the classic mystery writers wrote like.
Borderville is a town on the border of both states TN and VA. That makes the story interesting already. Our 4 main characters go out to a grave yard to see if the can find a grave of a revolutionary war soldier. Instead they find a dead body. The police write this body off as a transient, but the 4 ladies see clues that reveal differently. They collect clues and solve this mystery. Often they take turns writing out the events, and a few times other players write a chapter about this story. It works out well as a formula. I just wonder if the same writing style will be in the other book. the ROtary club murders.
When the body is discovered in Brown Spring Cemetery, The ladies of the DAr take up the cause...
The DAR members solve a mystery. Good read.
Light, clean, good reading. Won't keep you up at night and may even bring a laugh or two!
A light, fun read, especially if you happen to belong to DAR.
If you're into geneology and American history you'll enjoy this mystery with the older ladies of the local DAR stepping out to solve a crime. Well written, good plot.
