The first Sheila Travis mystery by Patricia
Houck Sprinkle. Not quite a true cozy, but
abundant sprinkles of the sights of Atlanta,
Charleston, and Jacksonville in this series. You
will adore Sheila's truly Southern aunt.

I haven't read this author before I did like the book, her style and the story. Sheila Travis has just started working at an "elite school of diplomacy". Only a fews at the job and she and her several students find the dead body of a beautiful woman. Sheila has the reputation of being an amateur sleuth that does not endear her to Chicago police. Sheila and her eccentric Aunt Mary try their best to convince the investigating officer to look at all the suspects, not just the one he is convinced did it. Ms. Sprinkle does a great job developing Sheila's character and those of the other key players in her book; so much so that I am eager to find more of them.

The first Sheila Travis book. Sheila is back in the US after her diplomat spouse dies in Japan. Lots of characters but not too difficult to keep them separate.Totally fooled me. I could have sworn I knew who dunnit!
