In the throes of a quarter-life crisis, Jiminy Davis abruptly quits law school and flees Chicago for her grandmother Willa’s farm in rural Mississippi. In search of peace and quiet, Jiminy instead stumbles upon more trouble and turmoil than she could have imagined.

She is shocked to discover that 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 cold case—to the dismay of those who would prefer to let sleeping dogs lie.

Beautifully written and with a sure grip on the tensions and social mores of small towns in the South, Sweet Jiminy will captivate its readers, and fans of Kristin Gore’s earlier novels will be intrigued and compelled by this new direction for her fiction.

    " I enjoyed the Sammy Hill books much more than this one. It wasn't at all what I expected. It held my interest throughout, though, and had a good ending. "

    " It is hard to believe that the sorts of injustices described in this book still occur. The story was an interesting one and a fast read. "

    " Not your usual Kristin Gore book, but very good nonetheless. Quick and to the point. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. "

    " Too many issues.
    Too much that was obvious from page 1.

    I finished it hoping for something that would make it better because really, the subject matter should be powerful. "
