The Sky Took Him
Donis Casey is high on my list of authors who deserve to be much better known. The Sky Took Him (2009) is the latest in her series featuring Alafair Tucker, farmer's wife and amateur sleuth in early 20th century Oklahoma. Lovely voice, lovely local color, and I especially enjoyed this entry's romance subplot involving Alafair's independent oldest daughter. And there was a nice balance of obvious clues that even mystery-clueless me could spot and unexpected twists that were subtly but fairly foreshadowed.
