"Mignon F. Ballard perfectly evokes the lives and surroundings of Southern women in small-town America, a sympathetic place that we would like to know and, for the moment at least, to live in. Murder in this context is more shocking, more threatening, than murder in the drug-choked streets of the Bronx.
"Molly Stonehouse, on a holiday visit to her late husband Ethan's aunts, suspects that behind the festive fa├žade in the small Georgia town of Harmony a dangerous drama is taking place. Scary incidents during the caroling parties and rifle fire . . . strengthen her belief that Ethan's death was not an accident. His killer could be a family friend. Perhaps even a relative. When her husband was a child he and his boyhood chum Neil had a secret they promised each other never to reveal. Now Neil and Ethan were both dead and Molly is afraid she is next!"
