Publisher Description

National bestselling author Susan Wittig Albert returns to the small town of Darling, Alabama, in the 1930s-- where the Darling Dahlias, the colorful ladies of a garden club, are anything but shrinking violets when it comes to rooting out criminals The Texas Star herself-- Miss Lily Dare, the " fastest woman in the world"-- is bringing her Dare Devils Flying Circus to Darling. Unfortunately, she' s also bringing a whole lot of trouble. As the Dahlias prepare for the annual Watermelon Festival-- where they will present the famous female aviatrix with her own Texas Star hibiscus-- rumors are flying. Dahlias president Liz Lacy learns from newspaperman Charlie Dickens that Miss Dare has been threatened and her plane sabotaged. Apparently the bold and beautiful barnstormer has made plenty of enemies. And is it possible she may even be involved with the husband of one of Darling' s local ladies? And speaking of wings, the new cook at Myra May' s Darling Diner can fry a chicken and whip up a sweet potato meringue pie like nobody' s business. But why is she keeping her past such a mystery? As the Texas Star barnstorms into town, Liz and Verna Tidwell offer to help bring down a saboteur who may be propelled by revenge. Before it' s all over, there will be plenty of black eyes and dark secrets revealed

“There is no murder in this story, but no one will miss it among the fascinating details of life in the Depression and intrigues among both series regulars and visitors to the town.”
