This is one of my favorite of the MacPherson mysteries! It has it all. Elizabeth is back from England and attempting to save her long-suffering brother from jail, while at the same time, trying to stop her parents from divorcing. Now, that's all well and good, but the real story, the fun, comes with the group of charming old ladies who live in the Home for Confederate Women take over the story.
Not great literature, folks, but a darn funny break from all the heavy reading. I wish this series had gone on for many more years.

Story of Elizabeth's brother Bill, the messes he gets himself into, and a band of feisty old Southern women. Fun read.

After you start getting to know all the zany characters in this book, you'll wish you really did know them. Quirky, crazy southern belles gone bad. You will chuckle as you read this book, I promise :)

Not nearly as good as many of her others. A tale of Confederate gold and eight wives and daughters of Civil War veterans and the scam they pull, plus some severe family problems, requires Elizabeth to fly back from Scotland to help her brother.

I was somewhat disappointed in McCrumb's sloppy use of Civil War history and personages, but then I can't write entertaining mysteries as she does. And I was certainly disappointed in what happened to the gold. But that's life.
