    Ellie is a strong and likeable protagonist. I enjoyed reading about her relationship with Mama and with her brother Charles, and also with the colorful and eccentric members of her community. The sense of being in a small town in Ohio in the middle of a hot, humid summer comes through strongly. The local cop doesn't put a lot of time into solving the murder. Mama, Ellie and Charles will lose the hotel that is their home if the murder isn't solved soon. Tension mounts as Ellie and Charles pursue clues. The final scenes surprise and satisfy when the identity of the murderer is finally revealed. Great writing and excellent depiction of place and character. It so piqued my interest that I found myself frequently turning to "google" for further research on the area where the story is set. Highly recommended.
