"The roots of the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency reach back to the 1980s in the little town of McGill, Georgia - where Stella Reid and her seven grandkids enjoy some spooky Halloween fun and stumble into murder...It doesn't take cash, just some good old-fashioned creativity, to turn a pillowcase into a ghost costume or a trashcan into a suit of armor. So even if she has to stick to a budget, Stella Reid always makes holidays like Halloween memorable for twelve-year-old Savannah and the rest of her grandchildren. After joining the other townspeople for trick-or-treating and the annual parade down Main Street, Granny Reid and the kids head to Judge Patterson's antebellum mansion, where a corn maze awaits. Most of the youngsters are too terrified to make it all the way to the middle. It's lucky for them, because when Savannah and Granny get there, it proves to be even scarier than they expected - half buried in the mud at the center of the maze lies a human skull. The grisly discovery uncovers a mystery that stretches back decades - and seems to be related to the long-unsolved murder of Granny Reid's own part-Cherokee mother. After all this time, the culprit may be long gone...or still hiding among them. It'll be up to Granny to dig into this Southern town's history and a mess of old family secrets..."--Publisher description.

LOVE this series!

2nd in the Granny Reid Mystery Series.
This is a new series by the author - the back story of Savannah Reid Mystery Series.
II really like Granny Reid and the southern sayings and setting. I am especially interested in the lives of the kids and how they will grow up. As I found this series 'first' I decided to try a Savannah Reid Mystery. It took me a while to enjoy the story for what it was and the characters for who they were, but I didn't see the 12 year old Savannah in her 40 something self. Wasn't as snappy/sassy as the Granny Reid Series but the mystery and the writing were just as good and I enjoyed it once I accepted the grown-up characters as their own.
Will eagerly await the next Granny Reid Mystery release. (Guess it is good for me to have at least one story line I can't 'binge' read. I like discovering these authors when they have already written 10 plus books in their series! :) )
