Visitors: 185

This was a fun book to read. Alafair Tucker has a hard life in Oklahoma back in 1912 but she takes it all in stride. Alafair and her husband Shaw have 9 children ranging in age from 20 years old down to 6 years old. They are better off financially then some of their neighbors but the family has to work hard on the farm. Alafair is lucky to have someone help her with her wash. She pays her helper a quarter and two jars of canned apples. Times have really changed. Don't think we could get much for a quarter today.

When Alafair finds out that her daughter is seeing a local boy John Lee Day she is quite surprised because Phoebe has been keeping this a secret. Before Alafair has had time to really think about the relationship John Day Lee’s father is found dead. At first it is thought that he got drunk and fell asleep outside and froze to death but it is soon discovered he has been shot.

Alafair takes it upon herself to find the person who did this. John Lee stands accused and Alafair cannot believe that he would shoot his father even though his father was a drunk, abusive man. Alafair manages to work in her detecting between taking care of her family and normal chores but sometimes it is a tight squeeze.

Donis Casey has a second Alafair Tucker book out Hornswoggled. On The Drop Edge of Thunder is due to come out this fall. Get in on the fun and pick up The Old Buzzard Had It Coming.
