Romance Suspense

As a child, Jessie Lockwood spent many hours helping her mother, Mariah, count the endangered ginseng plants hidden in the local woods of Deep Down, Kentucky. There she learned to appreciate the tiny Appalachian town—and ginseng's healing powers. Now a PhD, she's made her home in Lexington, even though that meant leaving Deep Down and her beloved mother—and Sheriff Drew Webb, the man she secretly loved.

When Jessie is notified that her mother never returned from her last walk in the woods, she comes home to Deep Down—and to Drew. As Jessie and Drew race to find her mother, several suspects emerge: an agent for those who market the herb for its life-giving properties; Mariah's disgruntled suitor; and an old Cherokee desperate to protect the sacred tribal herb.

In the mist of legend and fear, only two things make sense to Jessie. At any cost, she is desperate to find her mother. And she can't help falling desperately in love with Drew all over again.

Re: Deep Down

Ginger tea I could sip - ginseng I am not too sure about!
(Karin Tillotson 8:28am June 10, 2009)

Sounds like a great read! i take ginseng everyday!
(

I'm definitely going to have to read this! And if ginseng is so powerful, I hope they rescue it so we'll all have plenty!

Cultivated ginseng from Wisconsin is just about the best in the world, even over that from China. Most of our crop goes to China, in fact! Wild ginseng is even better, though. Sounds like a good book. I'll have to go look for it.

Later,

Lynn

Karen, what a different spin you've added to 'Deep Down' and what a fun way to learn about ginseng. This book will be on my summer vacation list.

I thought I'd let you know how much I enjoyed "Mistress Shakespeare." It was a very interesting take and tale on the missing years in 'Will's' life. I almost felt as if I were there myself.
