Publisher's Summary

It looks like the music has ended for Darling's favorite barbershop quartet, the Lucky Four Clovers, just days before the Dixie Regional Barbershop Competition. Another unlucky break comes when there's a serious foul-up in Darling's telephone system - and not a penny for repairs. And while liquor is legal again, moonshine isn't. Sheriff Buddy Norris needs a little luck when he goes into Briar Swamp to confront Cypress County's most notorious bootlegger - and what he finds upends his sense of justice. 

In the seventh book of this popular series, Susan Wittig Albert once again tells a charming story filled with richly human characters who face the Great Depression with courage and grace. She reminds us that friends offer the best of themselves to each other, that community is what holds us together, and that luck is what you make of it.

fun series

Really enjoy this series, which takes place in a small southern town in the depression. So many small references give you the flavor of the place and daily lives. Seems like the main murder investigation was left hanging with a lot of unanswered questions. But as that's not why I read these, still really enjoyed it.

Charming and entertaining

I love this series. The characters are endearing. Ms Albert’s sense of humor is at work as well as her magnificent storytelling. Can’t wait for the next one!

LOVE THIS SERIES!!!

Would you listen to The Darling Dahlias and the Unlucky Clover again? Why?

Historical mystery!! A cozy to love.

I am extremely disappointed.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I love the Dahlias and waited so long for the next installment and to be let down by an author I trusted makes me mad as hell.

What could Susan Wittig Albert have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She could have told us who did the murder! What was the point of leading us all of that way and then not telling us! I am really angry.

Which scene was your favorite?

None

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger - I hate it when authors do this.

Any additional comments?

She had better resolve this in the next book. Otherwise I am done with her.

Mixed Emotions

Be aware, this story is incomplete, many threads left hanging including the actual murder mystery. If I were not a fan of this series, I might have returned the book to Audible after the first few chapters.. I could not tell if she wanted to write a story or do a documentary of the Depression era. I loved the previous books but this time her narrative seemed tedious. When I thought she finally was into the story she goes off on a tangent describing the history of five and dime stores. Entirely too much time on this subject to remind us Liz's mother would be involved. Eventually the mystery gathers steam only to end in a Cliff Hanger. Fans will be glad to know another book is coming and I will purchase it, but I sure am disappointed with this edition. Peggity Price was lovely.
