Sweet Jiminy by Kristin Gore

Jiminy Davis is attending law school, but feeling lethargic about it.  She decides to go home to Grandma's and see if it helps her attitude.  

Hyperion will be publishing this book at the end of April.  I got my copy from Net Galley for review (thank you both).  It will be coming out in hardcover.

When Jiminy arrives home, she notices everyone is a bit reserved around her, but her trip home was unexpected so that's not unusual.  The story is set in Mississippi and there are old secrets buried there.  Once Jiminy gets a scent of an old unsolved mystery, she's not about to let go.  After all, there once was another Jiminy...

There is inter-racial love, memories of the past that don't want to resurrected, and prejudice by pound in this story.  The young Jiminy is bound and determined to find out who killed the victims and how they got away with it.  

As that old saying goes:  Be careful what you wish for, you might get it...

The story has a nice flow and discusses the issues factually. Jiminy finds herself alright, but does she like what she found?

Happy reading.
