|Who Let That Killer in the House? by Patricia Sprinkle

I just finished #5 Who Let That Killer in the House? by Patricia Sprinkle in her Thoroughly Southern mystery series. I rate this one a 6; for personal preferences of subject matter dealt with in the book. It is written just as well as the others...and I didn't have a clue to whodunit! It has a darker ending than her other books though things do work out in the end. I didn't have a clue what was going on until the ending.|
Years ago, a dark cloud moved over the small town of Hopemore, Georgia, after the murder of a little girl. One man was sent to prison for life - and two young boys were changed forever. Eventually, the skies cleared - and although the tragedy left its mark, the folks in Hopemore settled back into their routines. But that dark cloud seems to have returned with the apparent suicide of one of the town's most beloved citizens - DeWayne Evans, a favorite high school chemistry teacher and dedicated softball coach.
MacLaren Yarbrough uncovers more than one reason why DeWayne might have killed himself, but the evidence isn't adding up. And in this cozy Southern town, where "crime" usually involves nothing more than late library books, a murderer may be lurking in places where even a sharp-eyed MacLaren would never think to look.
