The Darling Dahlias and the Unlucky Clover by Susan Wittig Albert

The Lucky Four Clovers barbershop group is going to a competition for the grand prize in barbershop singing.  But they aren't counting on trouble.  First one has throat problems and can't sing.  The next one ends up in an upside down car, dead.  What's going on?

Presevero Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 6th.

There's a new sheriff in town who is learning his trade.  He has a good deputy and he's got a good head but he has to think things through, he's not fast on his feet.  He also has the help of the Darling Dahlias whether he wants it or not.

With small town gossip, bribes being paid, and business interests in things he shouldn't be playing with, there are all kinds of hints and clues to follow.  His wife was going to divorce him for using her money for his schemes.  Was she involved?

It's an entertaining mystery, has some recipes for you, and it keeps your attention.  I'm not sure the crime was really solved but there will be another book in this series and I expect the story to continue there and morph into another one.  Ms. Albert doesn't bore you.
