All the Crazy Winters

All the Crazy Winters is the second book in the Jesus Creek Mystery series, where foul play makes another appearance in this small town. The story starts with the murder of Estelle Carhart, a retired teacher, and a librarian at the local library. Delia was a soft-hearted soul, so kind that she could not collect any fines for books that are overdue. Her death shocks the whole of Jesus Creek, more so because the murderer is nowhere to be found. Who could have killed this gentlewoman, and what was their motivation? Did the killers find whatever they wanted, or can the residents expect to see more bodies?

Delia Conon is a library volunteer who also doubles as an amateur gynecologist. Delia suspects that there is a connection between Estelle’s death and the burning of an antebellum house. While Delia is right to be suspicious, she has no idea that she already knows too much for her good. There is someone in this small town who wants her out of the library for good. Delia does not realize that her life is in danger until much later in the story. Will Dalia be the next librarian to die in this town? How is the young girl going to stay ahead of the person who is so keen to kill her?

Aside from the thrill of discovering new clues that add to the murder puzzle, enjoy the humorous dialogue between the characters. It is also interesting to read about Delia’s suspicions about her colleague’s murder and whatever else is going on in Jesus Creek. The story flows well, and the cast is made up of interesting characters.

Delia is the central character in this story. This young girl comes with a likable personality, and her inquisitive nature helps her pick things that are oblivious to the average eye. The other essential character is Sarah Elizabeth Leach, a daughter to the matriarch Eliza Leach, an exciting personality. These two, together with other minor characters, make quite a team that turns this story into a page-turner.

You want a thriller that will keep you glued to the pages and make you laugh at the same time? All Crazy Winters is an ideal choice. This book is a mix of a great story, an exciting cast, and a fast pace where a lot is going on. The book is beautifully written, and the author is successful in transporting the reader to the town of Jesus Creek, where all the action seems to be happening.
