Reporter Branigan Powers is still reeling from the events of The Cantaloupe Thief when two college students crash into the north Georgia woods along a rural highway. It looks like an accident. But when the surviving girl wakens, she tells a curious story of a vehicle that forced them off the road – an old-fashioned, 1950s-style hearse.
Thus begins a mystery that has Branigan bouncing between a college campus and the town’s homeless encampment, as she tries to make sense of the bizarre links between the two.
The Cover Story reunites Branigan with the homeless Malachi Martin, so adept at seeing what isn’t there rather than what is.
Reviews for The Cover Story:
This was an intelligently plotted mystery with well-drawn characters and a delightful setting. Reporter Branigan Powers is one of my new favorite sleuths. Highly recommended. – Susan Furlong, author of Peaches and Scream and the Novel Idea Mysteries
The language in this story is a little gritty for typical Christian fiction, but, it’s also a little Christian for the typical secular cozy mystery, making The Cover Story even more of an interesting read. I enjoyed how Deb Richardson-Moore led readers on a merry chase, with plenty of distractions, while trying to solve who-done-it. I had guessed some of it correctly but totally didn’t see the full extent of the seeming ‘accident’ coming at all.
Looking for mystery that delves into some of the darker elements of life on the streets while still maintaining a true Southern charm, want to try to solve a mystery where no one is exactly as they first appear, where murder and betrayal are only a breath away? You just might want to try Deb Richardson-Moore’s newest mystery, The Cover Story. — Jessica Higgins, Goodreads
