Start reading the first in this series, and you'll wind up getting to know a whole town and following a cast of characters through mysteries, romances, marriages, babies, new houses and more. In Deep South Dead, Hunter Jones takes a job at a weekly newspaper in Merchantsville, Georgia, and quickly learns that in small towns gossip travels faster than the press can run. She's a bit of an outsider looking in until she goes to a grand old mansion for an interview with the president of the historical society, only to find that a murderer got there first.
Now, if she can only get the best looking sheriff in Georgia, Sam Bailey, to take her hunches seriously...
