Nola will be helping to tend to the farm while her parents are away but she returns home to find that nothing is the same from broken down tractor to broken irrigation lines and with a dismal harvest and just no money but with Nola's determination and a little help from some old friends and neighbors things slowly start to come together but not without the local town gossip hotline talking about Nola's rebel teenage years, years that Nola is still trying sort through in her mind and in her heart.
When the owner of the local lumber mill is found murdered on her families farm strangled with her very pregnant sister, Ida's scarf and Ida's husband, Hollis becomes the number one suspect with a attempted arson at the lumber mill and with Nola keeping in mind her mother's Taylor made Georgia Belle Facts. To Nola, this not so typical Southern Georgia Belle family comes first but she is determined even despite her feelings toward her brother in law Nola stops at nothing to save Hollis so life on the farm will be just peachy once again.
There was a instant connection to Nola for me, she is a character you will want to keep coming back to just to see what she will do next and what secrets will emerge from her past , a past and a home that Nola was some how running from. She seems to me like a real, genuine person someone I love love to know and be friends with in real life, she has secrets and flaws and a sorted past with regrets.
I found I could relate too all too much that at times I found myself crying for Nola and for myself because both our pasts took on similar paths. A very emotionally charged and character driven mystery with Nola at the helm going to bat for her family to set things right. Perfectly written first in a series mystery and not without mentioning peaches Nola's mission to save the Harper Family Peach farm has made me want to try the Harper family peach recipes. I can't wait to see what's new for Nola in the next A Georgia Peach Mystery, Rest in Peach.
