Excerpt

Beneath the crisp morning sky that promised a glorious spring day lay a broken body. The legs sprawled backwards and the arms stretched over head. One hand gripped a shiny object. Dried leaves and pine straw stuck to the bright yellow Polo shirt. A grotesque grimace covered what was left of the face. The clothes looked neatly pressed and clean except for the dried debris. Ants crawled over the bare neck and hands, making the body look as though it moved. Flies surrounded the head. The wind blew a wisp of hair back from the youthful brow. An ugly hole pierced the forehead.

     Young buds sprouted from the wild azalea and rhododendron bushes. Birds chirped, hawks squawked, and a rippling creek filled the silence. But the overpowering smell of death kept a lone raccoon and two deer at a safe distance.

Murder on Moonshine Hill is the second Jenna Scali novel Ms. Curtis has written, and I admit I’m becoming a fan of Jenna’s. I like heroine’s with wry wit who stick their noses in where they don’t belong, especially when it gets them into trouble.

This time, when Jenna gets an invitation to the wedding of her former childhood friend, she decides to attend only after finding a note tucked into the envelope pleading for help. When they were kids, Jenna had a crush on Marcy’s older brother, Peter. But after Peter’s death in a horrible accident, Marcy not only shut Jenna out, she completely shunned her. Her detective boyfriend’s out of town at a training seminar, but her friend Quentin who is a British gay history professor talks her into going with him as her escort. She can’t resist taking him to the blue-blood Southern upscale destination wedding at a quaint mountain inn. And when she stumbles upon a body in the woods and Marcy’s the prime suspect, neither of them can resist investigating the crime.

"Murder on Moonshine Hill" was a bit slow getting started. It took time for Jenna to get to the wedding and meet all of the susp—guests. She already knew most of the bride’s family, but the groom’s side were all new acquaintances, and there were twists and subplots running through and between both sides of the bridal aisle. It seemed the only place there could be any love lost was between the bride and groom. But even they weren’t acting like a happy couple on the eve of their wedding.

So—who’s body does Jenna stumble upon? And who did it? I’m not telling. You’ll have to buy "Murder on Moonshine Hill" to find out.
