No one is surprised when feisty Delilah Dickinson opens her literary travel agency in Atlanta after her divorce. But during her first group's tour of an old plantation modelled after Tara from Gone with the Wind, she finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery when the actor playing Clark Gable playing Rhetr Butler is found dead. Almost immediately, the police have the place under lockdown. Delilah finds herself taking over the investigation when their No1 suspect is her son-inlaw Luke-the not-so-bright husband of her daughter, Melissa. But life starts imitating art when the actors begin taking their roles a little too seriously-believing they actually are Ashley Wilkes, Scarlett O'Hara, and Melanie. With all the drama of Margaret Mitchell's epic story suddenly coming to alarming life, Delilah's only chance to head off a not-so-Civil War is to track down and confront the deranged murderer. But she must move quickly and very quietly--or risk becoming the next victim of a killer who frankly doesn't give a damn.

I like Delilah Dickenson.She is a great new addition to the cozy detectives. I enjoyed the book and will definitely look for more.

Below average. Not suspenseful. Dated. Only real liveliness the descriptions of the Gone with the Wind settings.
