Rachel Goddard Mystery
review 1: Poisoned Ground is a very, very good book, beautifully written and plotted. This is the third book of Ms. Parshall’s series I read and my favorite, though the others were also excellent. The plot, steeped in dark secrets from the past and woven with corporate greed so prevalent in the present, brings together county residents on two sides of a development project, with the smarmy interlopers promising a way out of the area’s depressed economic situation. I particularly loved the characterization of the corporate honcho. Riveting mystery from the first to last page. I won this book in a drawing in exchange for an honest review, and that’s what I wrote.
review 2: This is the second book that I've read in the Rachel Goddard Mystery series by Sandra Parshall.
... more I am very impressed with Ms. Parshall's writing style. I am also impressed with the story. It was a good mystery that kept me guessing until the end.A development company has divided the residents of Rachel's small Blue Ridge Mountain community. Some people want to sell out and some don't. Old friendships are strained. Families are divided. It is amidst this turmoil that people start being murdered and vandalism is rampant. Are the murders related to the possible development...or is it something completely different.Loved this book and highly recommend it. I am looking forward to reading more of this series. less
