A SIBA Okra Pick for Best Southern-flavored Literature

[A] lively cast rich with heartfelt emotion . . . wit propels this fast-paced treasure-hunt tale into a pitch-perfect delight . . . if [readers] can get through the end without welling up, they're tougher than most--it's absolutely worth the wait.--Kirkus, starred review

"Turnage's fine-tuned talent for storytelling is as evident as her understated, irrepressible humor and her creative ability to turn a phrase . . . The large, intergenerational cast of idiosyncratic characters enriches this first-person narrative at every turn. Amusing, dramatic, and tender."--Booklist, starred review

"Every volume a standout, the Mo and Dale Mysteries series ends on as high a note--just as it began. Turnage delivers, once again, a fast-paced adventure with a cast of characters who are as real as they are quirky and laugh-out-loud dialog. . . . Readers of character-driven novels filled with humor will be thrilled by this smart and sweet series, start to finish."--VOYA, starred review
