Series: Lily Gayle Lambert #1
The first book in the Lily Gayle Lambert Mystery series. Quicker than she can stitch together the threads of a genealogy project she's just signed on to research, Lily Gayle Lambert finds herself embroiled in investigating the murder of a stranger who suffers from 'wolfman syndrome’. And, when a member of a prominent family turns up dead soon after the 'wolfman', Lily Gayle must find the link between the two and solve the mystery before she becomes the next target. Escaping from a trailer in the woods owned by two good ole boys and a confrontation with the eldest son of the town's wealthiest family have Lily Gayle hot on the trail of the killer…much to the consternation of her cousin. Who just happens to be the County Sheriff. With the help of her lifelong best friend, Dixie, and town busybody, Miss Edna, she pieces together the clues leading to a conclusion that shocks the entire town.
This book follows Lily Gayle Lambert whose cousin is the Chief of Police and before she meets him for dinner Lisbeth Mitchell shows up at her house to hire her to look into her genealogy which Lily thinks will be incredible as no one knows much about the Mitchell's. After her dinner with her cousin she goes with him to a police call not realizing it's a murder scene and Lily recognizes something from a CSI episode in the victim. Who killed the wolfman and how does it apply to the Mitchell family?
I loved reading this book and meeting Ben, Lily, Lily's best friend Dixie and Miss Edna who seems to know what is going on in town and wont be shut down by the young people around her. It was great to read and enjoy the adventure this book takes you on. I think many people will find themselves pulled in wanting to know what happened. Can't wait to be at Dixie's next time a murder happens. They seem like an incredible group of people!
