Lottie Garrett’s career as a partner in a New York investment firm is a far cry from her humble beginnings in the Deep South. Life is eerily calm until Lottie and her unlikely business partner, Raymond, are pitted in a life and death struggle against a masked murderer who chases them across three states. They land in Union City, Alabama, Lottie’s rural hometown, but Lottie hasn’t been home or seen her wise, homespun mother, Miss Charity, in over ten years. As tightly guarded family secrets collide, Miss Charity will be the best guide for Lottie and Raymond’s unexpected, soul-searching adventure, which leads to reconciliation, divine forgiveness and the release of bitterness. Filled with southern charm, a twist of mystery and a dash of suspense, Pickin’ Ground takes readers through a thorny murder plot that unravels through the very last page!
Pickin’ Ground is the first book in the Lottie series.
5-Star Amazon Reviews
“This story was a nice balance of a fast-paced plot with southern charm. Lottie is a memorable character with realistic challenges. The author’s voice (a sure authority of southern traditions and dialect) added a nice touch to the story.”
“This is a great book!!! Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down! I love the fact that it was southern based and really kept me wanting more!! Get you a copy today!!”
“It is so refreshing to read a quality novel filled with suspense, twists and turns, a little humor, and a lot of love; without the lewd references and profanity that permeate modern-day fiction! I look forward to reading more about Miss Lottie!”
