The Bloody Shoe Affair
A daring and thrilling adventure with the jailer's daughter
Christi, a shy and naïve city girl, reluctantly teams up with her cousin, Lily, the “double-dare-you” teenage daughter of the county jailer of Roselyn, Mississippi, to figure out what happened the night Lily observed a deputy drop a pair of women’s bloody shoes from a bag. In an effort to find the truth and seek justice for the accused, they are drawn into an adventure of risk and unexpected twists that result in dangerous consequences. On their exciting journey, they explore forbidden places, meet colorful characters, and even find a little romance.
The Bloody Shoe Affair is also a marvelous coming of age story as Christi gains some independence from her family during her trip and also experiences a bit of romance.
While this mystery was written for young adults, I found it to be an entertaining and satisfying story that mystery fans of all ages should enjoy.
