Ruby T of Ruby T’s Roadhouse sets her sights on being a guest on Partyin’ when her idol, Diamond, famous for his New Orleans Restaurant and Cajun cooking who is also a star on the Dishing It Network, comes to be on the show.
How could Ruby T know that it was Dabney’s life’s dream (other than being a star on the Dish It Up Network and write a romance novel with Flavio on the cover) to sing and dance with Sadie Summer, a former abused wife who once sang with her husband Eli Summer? Sadie’s appearance has been arranged by Ruby’s cousin the movie star S.Tee for a Charity Revue to benefit the “homeless, hopeless, helpless and hungry.” Dabney discovers a weakness for blackmail and Ruby T winds up on the Diamond segment
The participants of the Charity Revue bond through the preparations for the charity revue and two lonely women find a new lease on life with the unlikely friendships and adventure they stumble into. Mix in the son of a prostitute third cousin once removed and drug lord who was adopted out and now returns to the family fold with the supposed suicide of cousin Palmer Watson. Stir in the international attention now focused on an area where once nefarious activities could operate successfully under the radar and you have mystery and adventure. Then dish up Gavin Crenshaw, the anesthesiologist for Dabney’s colonoscopy and Harvey Banks, retired judge and president of the Cox County Master Gardeners, and you've got a spicy romance.
Other than Dabney’s natural talent to just “piss people off,” why would a homicidal maniac target this genealogist, star of the Dishing It Network, geriatric sex symbol, and soon to be published romance writer?
The rich history of this neglected area comes alive in this "what if" story. Mint Juleps and Murder is a reading romp with memorable characters and settings from New Orleans, Louisiana to Cox County, Alabama. Combining Ann George Southern Sisters mystery with Fannie Flagg’s downhome humor, friendship, family and love triumph in this unexpected second life of once estranged sisters.
Mint Juleps and Murder is the first of a series of mysteries/adventures..
