“In this delightful first of an offbeat new series from Saums (Midnight Hour), recently widowed Jane Thistle, who has lived many places as the wife of a career military officer, moves to Tullulah, Ala., where she soon meets Phoebe Twigg, also a widow, who has lived in the small town all her life. The two women, despite their differences in outlook and personality, become close friends. When they find a dead body in the woods, and Jane’s neighbor Cal Prewitt is arrested for murder, they turn detective to exonerate him. Phoebe’s kitchen is firebombed, and Jane is subject to eerie happenings in her house. They persevere, despite the threats, and prove that two crafty widows are more than a match for the bad guys. Saums ably weaves humor, suspense and a dash of the supernatural in this winning twist on the Southern cozy.”
