Peaches and Scream

A Georgia Peach Mystery, #1

In the first in a new series, Nola Mae Harper has returned to her hometown to help run the family peach farm. Not only does she have to worry about the town gossips spreading rumors about her reputation (apparently she was a wild child back in the day) but she really finds herself in a jam when she comes across the body of a local businessman among the peach trees!

I found this series debut highly entertaining. Susan Furlong is a gifted writer (many may not be aware she also writes under the name of Lucy Arlington) and this mystery was well crafted and the characters well fleshed out. I could almost hear their southern accents floating off the page! Definitely worth a look! Four Stars – ROCCO LOTEMPIO


Book Blurb for Peaches and Scream

In the first Georgia Peach Mystery, when murder threatens her family’s orchard, Nola Harper is ready to pick out the killer and preserve the farm’s reputation…

To help run the family peach farm during her parents’ absence, Nola Harper returns to her childhood home of Cays Mill, Georgia, and soon discovers that things back at the farm aren’t exactly peachy. A poor harvest and rising costs are threatening to ruin the Harpers’ livelihood, and small-town gossip is spreading like blight thanks to Nola’s juicy reputation as a wild teenager way back when. But Nola really finds herself in the pits when she stumbles upon a local businessman murdered among the peach trees.

With suspicions and family tensions heating up faster than a cobbler in the oven, this sweet Georgia peach will have to prune through a list of murder suspects—before she too becomes ripe for the killer’s picking…
