This second volume of national best-selling author Susan Wittig Albert’s Darling Dahlias mysteries once more transports listeners to the dusty streets of Depression-era Darling, Alabama.
When strangers Nona Jean Jamison and Miss Lake roll into town, the rumor mill starts grinding. It seems that these two women may be the infamous Naughty and Nice Sisters from the Ziegfeld Frolic - specializing in dancing nearly naked! But when Nona denies this association, the Dahlias, who suspect she’s being more than just modest, begin digging around for the truth.

Sweet and Southern
More of the Dahlias' escapades in their Alabama town of Darling and absolutely delightful. The narrator is so perfect giving voice to Lizzie and Verna and the girls. I love the southern "flavor" of it all. It makes one wish for a circle of friends like these to share the good times and the hard times. There is a mystery plot, but just as enjoyable is the "getting to know" the ladies. There's something touching to me listening to their stories of the families, their spirit in making do and somehow making it seem wonderful. Perhaps, I'm just one who needs to get away from the reality of today's life once in awhile. lol Listen after the story is over and you'll get the recipes for some of the yummy sounding dishes served in the book as well as homemade household products. How neat! There's mystery, a little heartache, a little romance and lots of fun.
