Publisher's Summary

The fourth, ground-breaking mystery featuring African-American maid and amateur sleuth Blanche White by Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award winning author Barbara Neely.

Blanche White returns to Farleigh, North Carolina for the summer to help her best friend with her catering business. It's a homecoming rich with the potential for new romance and fraught with the pain of facing the man who raped her at knife-point years ago but was never prosecuted for the crime. Shortly after Blanche arrives, a young woman is murdered and the clues point to the rapist. Blanche investigates, determined not to let him get away with another crime...nor is she willing to let his money-hungry sister marry a sweet, mentally-challenged man for his wealth. With her usual persistence, feisty wit, and indomitable spirit, her quest for the truth reveals the racism and sexism that still permeate the new south, but also the conflicts that divide her own family...and that might prevent her from accepting the love she so richly deserves.

SOMETHING WAS OFF

I'm debating on returning this book. it was a chore to complete it. something about it was just off. I did not enjoy it. I immensely enjoyed the previous Blanche books but this one was a "hard read" I don't know why

Never Better

Barbara Neely never disappointed. She was a master revealing the humanity in her characters and signs of the times in all of her books.

Ms. Neely passed in 2020, I believe. She was a great writer and human being. I really wish we could have more of Blanche and the next chapters of her life.

Blanche white

The main character Blanche way has developed into one of my favorite people to listen to her story and her life experiences. In this book she explores personal relationships, past hurts, and mommy issues! Which resonate with me because I know my mother loves me just like blanches mother loves her and they have sacrificed life and sometimes happiness to produce Resilient women who are making better choices in a world that tries to take your choices away. I relationshipwith Thlven Shows a side of Blanch that we have yet to see thus far.
