Here's what Lana's readers are saying...

Rosey Dow does a magnificent job of portraying the various eccentric characters you find in every small town. From the town doctor to the woman who can cook a possum and you would swear it is rib eye steak. ~Kindle Customer (from Amazon)

I loved the unique setting of this mystery. It told two stories at the same time...the Scopes trial and the mystery. The author gently and respectfully examined the opposing philosophies presented at the trial. I look forward to reading more of her books! ~Mom of 3 (from Amazon)

The who-dunnit portion of Ms. Dow's latest effort is so well done, I defy anyone to guess the criminal's identity. Her accurate, painstaking research is clearly reflected in the clear and informative presentation of the Scopes "monkey" trial details. For entertainment, this is tops. For historical accuracy, it can't be bettered. I would recommend this for anyone who has an interest in mysteries or historical fiction. But be warned...don't start reading until you have time to won't want to put it down! ~D.A. Featherling (from Amazon)

I read this book to our kids while on a long trip. They loved it and didn't want to stop anywhere because then I would have to stop reading. ~seehere (from Amazon)

Nice book like all this authors. I really enjoyed reading every book she has put out. I read them and then I pass them on to other readers. ~Carol (from Amazon)

The book is entertaining and easy to read. The dialogue was particularly funny (due to the intended humor and time period). ~Tallulah A. Scribbles (from Amazon)

I started the book and oh my goodness, you are constantly wondering what will happen. I highly recommend this book it you like romance, suspense and just plain good writing. But like the others have said, set aside some time because it is hard to put down! It's a keeper. ~Love 2 Read Novels (from Amazon)
