Death of a Wolfman
by Susan Boles

It was great to read and enjoy the adventure this book takes you on.
~Community Bookstop
…The author obviously knows her southern culture, and weaves a plot around it which keeps you guessing from beginning to end. I can hardly wait to read more about Lily Gayle, Dixie, and Miss Edna solving murders!

Synopsis

Lily Gayle Lambert is a professional seamstress specializing in period dresses for convention attendees and re-enactment groups along with being an amateur genealogist. And a big pain in the butt to the county sheriff…who just happens to be her cousin.
Quicker than she can stitch together the threads of a genealogy project she’s just signed on to research, Lily Gayle finds herself embroiled in investigating the Halloween night murder of a stranger who suffers from ‘wolfman syndrome’. Before she can even get going good on the first murder a member of a prominent family turns up dead too.
Escaping from a trailer in the woods owned by two good ole boys suspected of being involved and a confrontation with the eldest son of the town’s wealthiest family have Lily Gayle hot on the trail of the killer.
With the help of her lifelong best friend, Dixie, Lily Gayle must find the link between the two and solve the mystery before her investigation makes her the next target.

My Review

I am happy to have discovered a new and intriguing series. A charming small town in Mississippi, warm and likeable characters, a compelling storyline make this a very enjoyable read. I have always been fascinated with genealogy and it was really interesting to carry out the research along with Lily.
Lily is very passionate about genealogy and has done a lot of research for families of Mercy, the friendly town in which she lives. She receives an assignment from one of the oldest families of the city and is very excited to accept. Soon she should also take care of the death of a man who suffered the "wolfman syndrome". This will make her quarrel with her cousin, the county sheriff who doesn't want meddling in his investigations.
Lily is a great character, an intelligent and resourceful woman, has many capabilities and performs each task with great passion. I loved her relationship with her cousin, their fights were often very funny.
This is the  first book that I have read by this author, I love her style full of humor, I can't wait to read her next job.
A mystery really fascinating and engaging, well written with a flowing style and with a perfect mix of suspense and irony, there are many funny scenes and many twists.
I highly recommend this book!

About the Author

Susan calls McNairy County, TN her home ground even though she has moved away. It was here, at Bethel Springs Junior High School that she began her writing career with two friends. They formed their own little writers group that was so secret they were the only ones who knew it existed. She still has some of the stories they wrote carefully preserved in a loose leaf binder and tucked away for safety.
She has worked in retail management, briefly for the Census Bureau and for many years in the investment/insurance industry in the regulatory compliance arena. All of which are left brain activities. So she exercises her right brain activity with reading and writing…just to keep both sides even.
Reading has been a passion since she was very young. As a toddler, her mother read to her from her ‘baby books’ and her Mother tells a story about her holding one of them upsidedown and ‘reading’ by repeating the story verbatim from memory.
Death of a Wolfman is the first in the Lily Gayle Lambert mystery series. Her previously published romantic suspene novel, Fated Love, is a contemporary paranormal romantic suspense (with a twist of paranormal) set in Memphis, TN. Her first novel, Kate’s Pride, is a historical women’s fiction set in West Tennessee in the aftermath of the Civil War. The novel is loosely based on her own Great Grandmother and published under the pen name Renee Russell.
Life got in the way of writing for many years but now she’s come back to her early love.
