SOUTHERN GIRL Jennifer Martin, plucky and independent, returns to Bedford, Mississippi, in the third installment of the mystery series that bears her name.
Usually bold and resilient, the never-say-die Jennifer is plagued by fear and gruesome nightmares. Tommy Capelli, indicted for murder almost a year ago, is scheduled for trial in just five days, and Jennifer is the state's star witness. Trying to retain her sanity, she throws herself into her work at The Bedford Sentinel, spending more time at the office than in her new apartment with roommate Magnolia Roan.
Sleep-deprived and exhausted, Jennifer gets an eye-opening phone call from love interest Davis Sanford. He's in trouble again, and this time it's more serious than ever. Throw in an early-morning fire that turns Jennifer's world upside down, and when she hears that Capelli has escaped, she must decide if she will run and hide or seek the man she is slated to testify against. Can this homegrown, Mississippi girl dig deep into her Southern roots and use her resources to find the courage she needs?
Susan Sims Moody's The Devil Don't Knock spins a New South tale of greed and deception with Old South charm of small-town Mississippi.
