Book DescriptionPromise McNeal is startled awake one night by a jarring dream: she sees a beautiful woman, hanging over a shallow creek, strangled to death with a red scarf. An unsettling image to say the least for a woman who recently left her lucrative job as a psychologist in bustling Atlanta for the mountains of North Carolina, hoping for some peace and quiet. Promise begins to dig into the mystery surrounding the woman's murder…until a brand new murder occurs...and Promise's hoped-for peace and quiet flies right out the window.
Promise has always been a little psychic, and a little embarrassed about it. But here in the mountains, the effect seems magnified. Now making her living as a struggling country-store owner, she has to rely on her psychologist's knowledge of what makes people tick to make her way through the thicket of intrigue within the family of the dead woman.
Along the way, she makes a surprising art world find, and starts to fall in love (maybe, just a little…) with a very attractive new man. Her tentative relationship with Daniel, the father of Susan, her semi-Goth, twenty-something employee, is one of the major delights of this slightly psychic cozy mystery. Both Daniel and Susan are renowned bluegrass musicians and, well…characters. Despite what's right in front of her nose (and what Susan tells her), Promise's psychic abilities fail her when it comes to mountain men—because Daniel is most definitely "sweet on her," as Susan attests. And, true to form, opposites attract here—alien as he may seem to this city girl, something deeper is responding.
Meanwhile, there's that murder mystery. Daniel, despite his endearing over-protectiveness, is able to help out there too, and so is Susan. Allthewhile, Promise's amusingly sexist friend, Garland Wang, provides just the right dash of humor.
