This delightful stop in a Southern small town belongs in “Cozy Mystery 101”. Anyone who has lived in a small town will recognize the various characters that make “Hijack in Abstract” come alive. The truck stop, the local Bar and Grill, and the various homes in and around town, all are known in most small towns. Halo, GA, is no exception.
And yes, there is mystery - as the title suggests, there is a hijacking; but what would a cozy mystery be without a murder or two. Discovering who the victims are and their relationship to the culprits are a big part of this story. As Henery Press’ own publicity announces, the story has its twists and turns as Cherry Tucker, the local artist (the only real artist), makes her way through the clues.
This is the first book that I have had the privilege of reading from this publisher, but I will look forward to reading more. I already have received my second title from this publisher, but it also will not be my last.
