In Fulton North Carolina, it gets pretty quiet during the off season. Or at least is seems that way. At the town post office it's so slow that the postal clerk has time to go thru the3 dead letter file for entertainment reading.
Out at nearby ferris beach, erosion is turning waterfront properties into underwater properties, wave by wave.
At the radio station, the local talk show host is late showing up so they're running "Swap Shop" early. If you have something to sell just call in.
Over on the wrong side of the tracks, Quee Purdy is warming up the aromatic massage oil.
But this peaceful surface is about to crack wide open.
You see at least one underwater property owner and happily married wife entrusts her illicit love secrets to the dead letter file. Another property owner wants revenge. One talk show host wants to hit the big time.
This was a fast read and fun book. I really enjoyed it. Has mystery, suspense and love. The author was a new one for me and I really liked Ms. McCorkle.
