The author of Rest in Peach serves up another bite
of Southern charm in the latest Georgia Peach mystery.
Nola Mae Harper is too busy restocking the jars of preserves
and chutney flying off the shelves of her shop, Peachy Keen,
to keep up with all the gossip about the upcoming
mayoral election, but she does know the debate is sure to be
a real barn burner.
Local farmer Clem Rogers claims he has a bombshell that
could take small business owner Margie Price out of the
running. But before Clem can reveal his juicy secret at the
debate, his actual barn goes up in flames—with him inside of
it. The town casts its vote against Margie, but Nola isn’t
convinced the hardworking woman is capable of murder. Now to
clear Margie's name Nola will have to work fast under
pressure, before Margie gets taken in by the fuzz...

Re: War and Peach
I loved the Nancy Drew series. Have never considered the
things that could be learned from the serious or the
heroine but it set me up to be a lifelong reader.

I read all the Nancy Drew novels when I was young. The
mysteries were captivating.

I practically lived at the library when I was young---I traveled the world through reading.

OMG. Although I loved Nancy Drew and read everyone of her
books I could get my hands on, whenever they were written,
and yes, they changed up every 10-20 years. My favorite
Nancy Drew memory occurred once I became a school
librarian and a 6th grade teacher assigned the boys to
read a girl's book and the girls to read a boy's book.
The boys scarfed up the Nancy Drews because we had the
entire series. And after the assignment was over, the
boys kept checking them out!! They worked their way
through all of them for the rest of the school year. It
was the best thing ever!

I too read all the Nancy Drew books. The new ones today
aren't as good. Wish I had some idea where my copies are
now - my parents have moved twice since I was young! I used
to trade with a friend for her Bobbsey Twins books.

I too enjoyed Nancy Drew in my tween and early teens. She taught me: to
be strong. Never under estimate an opponent. Always be curious and ask a
those million and one annoying questions. Follow your gut (if that little voice
is on loop whispering danger or keep digging --do it heed caution); instinct
will save you. Be prepare. Appreciate family and friends. Persistence
generally pays off. Girls-- women are as smart if not more so than their
male counterparts; not even the sky is a limit to where you can soar. And
most important: be yourself; forge your own path, your own destiny and
don't let anyone convince you to be anything less than tou.

Wow - first time visiting fresh fiction and I just found another author that writes mysteries and includes recipes
I read Diane Mott Davidson and Joanne Fluke
(Joyce Horn 11:14am March 1)
I don't remember reading Nancy Drew. I do remember reading ALL of Agatha Christie, though. I think I may have been too old for Nancy Drew. I read Phyllis Whitney also, and mystery authors of that time. Still love mysteries!

When I was young I did not enjoy reading but would read Nancy Drew
when we had to read books I school. It wasn't until I was 40 when I became
a advid reader and that was for therapy and haven't slowed down in 12
years reading truly is therapy

I love a good mystery and all the clues coming to one conclusion at the end, but
never quite giving away the "Who Done it?" until the end of the story
(Diane Mcmahon 8:22am March 2)
When I was in the second grade, I discovered reading was fun. Since then, I've read many books and enjoy a good mystery.
(Anna Speed 12:58pm March 2)
