Book Description

First in a New Series

Richmond attorney Sarah Tucker returns to sell her family’s abandoned farm in Misty River, Virginia despite unanswered questions about her grandparents’ disappearance sixteen years earlier. Sarah was only twelve when she went to visit and found her grandparents had vanished. No amount of searching has brought answers.

Now Sarah is faced with other issues when a man is killed who claimed to have information about what happened to her grandparents. She learns of a Confederate chest of gold that is said to be buried on the property, and treasure hunters who are willing to do anything to get their hands on it.
Were her grandparents murdered for the gold? Sarah can’t sell the land and go back to her life until she has answers. But the cost of the answers may be her life.

Includes farm-fresh recipes!

My Review

Give Em Pumpkin To Talk About is the first book in a new series by Joyce and Jim Lavene. As I have enjoyed their other series I knew I would enjoy this latest novel.

Sarah Tucker, who is an attorney in Richmond, Virginia, returns to her family's abandoned farm in Misty River to prepare to sell it. Sarah's grandparents had mysteriously disappeared from the farm 16 years ago. She needs to contend with a man who seems to know something about their disappearance as well as Jack a squatter on the farm. And what is this about Confederate gold?!? Lots of action, shots being fired, people being murdered...will Sarah be able to figure out what is going on?

Lots of twists in this fast reading mystery!

Recipes included! Highly recommend the Give Em Pumpkin to Talk About.
