520    "It's 1982, and Dee Ann Bulluck has enjoyed three peaceful
       years as a young wife, mother, and technical college 
       instructor since moving to a backyard apartment in small-
       town Narrow Creek, North Carolina. Then her landlord Floyd
       Powell dies while sitting in his recliner on a calm 
       Saturday morning. Turns out, his death is due to something
       more sinister than his diet of honey buns and Pepsi Colas,
       and the major suspect is Miss Josie, his wife of thirty-
       five years. Convinced of Miss Josie's innocence -- and by 
       the fact that if her landlady goes to jail, she and 
       husband Joe will likely lose their sweet deal of an 
       apartment -- Dee Ann agrees to help Miss Josie prove she's
       blameless. Their bumbling investigation manages to reveal 
       Floyd's involvement in some unsavory enterprises, 
       including bootlegging. The reappearance of Miss Josie's 
       long-lost beau and the meddling of her overbearing, big-
       city daughter complicate their amateur sleuthing. Her 
       landlord may be dead, but Dee Ann is busy with life: 
       Monday night choir practice at the Methodist church, house
       -hunting with Joe, and controlling mischievous three-year-
       old Heather. She barely has time to hide in Miss Josie's 
       closet to eavesdrop or creep through the woods looking for
       a still. Will Miss Josie wind up in the big house while 
       Dee Ann ends up with no house? Like its heroine Dee Ann 
       Bulluck, Life and Death in Narrow Creek is smart and sassy,
       witty and insightful. Readers will discover a cozy mystery
       warmed by the culture yet complicated by the social issues
       of the early 1980s in a small Southern town."--|cProvided
