New Mercies by Sandra Dallas

In Natchez, Mississippi in 1933 a murder/suicide takes place in an old plantation home called Avoca.  Nora Bondurant, from Colorado reads about the incident surrounding “the goat lady” in the newspaper, passing it off as an interesting, curiosity only to find out that the woman was her aunt and she is the only remaining relative. 

She travels to Natchez to claim her inheritance and escape some secrets of her own.  In Natchez, she becomes enmeshed in the mystery and the community.

Good story, but not one of Dallas’ best. 

3 Stars (PG-13, some mild sexual references)
