Tensions are high in Cays Mill over the upcoming mayoral
election. Margie Price, a small business owner, is
running against peach farmer, Clem Rogers. Clem is
rumored to have some juicy gossip on Margie that will
change the entire course of the election. However, he's
murdered before he has a chance to tell anyone what he's
discovered. Nola Mae Harper doesn't want to get involved
in another murder mystery but this one is personal.
WAR AND PEACH is the third book in Georgia
series. Readers don't have to be familiar with the
characters in order to enjoy WAR AND PEACH. Susan Furlong
quickly acquaints readers with the small town of Cays
Mill and the residents. It's hard not to love Cays Mill,
despite its very active gossip mill. Susan Furlong
utilizes the gossip mill to great effect, as she shows
some of the quirks (both positive and negative) of small
I love Nola and her loyalty to her family. The entire
Harper family is close knit, even in the worst of times,
and WAR AND PEACH showcases that closeness. We get to see
all of the Harper siblings chipping in to help as things
escalate quickly after Clem's murder.
WAR AND PEACH is another charming cozy mystery in the
Georgia Peach series. I enjoy each and every visit
to the delightfully gossipy Cays Mills and can't wait to
see what is next in store for Nola and her family. If you
haven't had a taste of this delightful mystery series,
give WAR AND PEACH a shot.

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...
