Sweet Jiminy by Kristin Gore
Due out: April 26, 2011
Summary from Goodreads:
In the throes of a quarter-life crisis, Jiminy abruptly quits law school and flees Chicago for her grandmother Willa’s farm in rural Mississippi. In search of respite, Jiminy instead stumbles upon more trouble and turmoil than she ever knew existed. She is shocked to discover there was once another Jiminy—the daughter of her grandmother’s longtime housekeeper, Lyn—who was murdered along with Lyn’s husband four decades earlier in a civil rights-era hate crime. With the help of Lyn’s nephew Bo, Jiminy sets out to solve the long-ago murder, to the dismay of those who would prefer to let sleeping dogs lie. In Sweet Jiminy, Kristin Gore has created a lively and compelling story with authentic and genuine Southern characters that will enthrall and entertain readers.
