This is the fourth in the series about Sarah Booth Delaney and each one is better than the others. Sarah is a southern belle who is the emancipated version of southern women. While she knows all the "rules" she chooses not to use them as she cuts a wide swath through the Delta of Mississippi. This story takes on a bit of race relations in the south woven through a killing, a romance or two and a bit of music fantasy. Sarah has a delightful cast of characters who help her move through life in Zinnia. Can't wait to revisit the Delta for the next book in the series.

Good read. This is not the first book with the main character but it was not difficult to work out the story line. I will check other books now by this author.
