Twilight of the Drifter
The ladies from New England were all a bit standoffish, dressed in trendy suits, wore heels and sported fastidious hair dos.
This thirty-something broker wore overalls and combat boots. Moreover, she vacillated from being extremely practical to moments of impulsiveness, most notably the time she recalled when she jumped into a raging river during a hot summer day and nearly drowned trying to swim against the current and make it back to shore.
Next, I was advised not to miss the Halloween festivities one evening on Church Street. But as it turns out, there were no churches on Church Street and I was inundated by revelers all dressed as demon spirits—the devil had taken over Church Street. The third element that finally set me off and running was an interview I was conducting with a church lady at a nearby retirement center.
All She Wants To Do Is Rock
I expected her to serve me tea, show me photos of the grandkids, and reminisce about the sweet days gone by. A colorful, quixotic realtor, an influx of demon spirits, and a hyper church lady with a percolating secret past. What can come of that intriguing dynamic just for starters?
At the outset, Miranda Davis has nothing much going for her. The tourists are long gone by October in the quaint Carolina town of Black Mountain, her realty business is at a standstill, and her weekend stint managing the local tavern offers little to pull her out of the doldrums. When prominent church lady Cloris Raintree offers a stipend to look into the whereabouts of a missing girl hiker on the QT, Miranda, along with her partner Harry an unemployed features writer agree.
But then it all backfires. A burly figure shambles down a mountain slope with a semiconscious girl draped over his shoulder.
