Readers of Mud Marbles will remember Delta, a distant cousin of the Drake family who comes to visit Cotton Tree from Savannah, Georgia.
As soon as Delta hears of a possible murder, the memorable road trips begin.
Like most Southern households, hospitality abounds. Delta’s hospitality extends beyond the cocktail shaker. She has help with her hospitality as she frequents the famous River Street Sweets® of Savannah,Georgia. Her son Mason has labeled River Street Sweets® as the best candy store in the whole wide world.
In the novel, the reader meets Marilyn and Kathryn, sisters and neighbors whose favorite pastime is sipping martinis from mason jars on Marilyn’s front porch in the gulf front town of Orange Beach, Alabama, as they reminisce about family and the times they visited Cotton Tree.
Miss Mincy is the girls’ source of stability and has given the entire family advice and inspiration throughout the years. While some could misconstrue Mincy’s presence, she is not a maid. She is a member of the Chandler-Drake household in Cotton Tree.
