Hanging Tobacco is the first book in the Parlor Game Mystery Series.
Olivia Honeycutt solved the cold case murder of Sophie Mathews with the help of Sophie’s Ouija board. Now, Olivia and her Nashville detective boyfriend, Presley, tackle the twenty five year old mystery surrounding the death of Henry Meyer. The old man was found hanging from the neck in the rafters of his tobacco barn in Columbia, Tennessee. Was Henry intent on suicide? Or, was it murder?
Uncovering the truth behind Henry’s death proves both challenging and life threatening. Not everyone in Columbia wants to know the truth. Olivia takes the Ouija board on the road.
"I really enjoyed this novel. Right from the beginning it grabbed my attention and had me turning pages wanting to know what happens next. The mystery of this novel is really well done and I absolutely love it. I like that I got to figure out who the murderer was and that it wasn't something so obvious that you see it a mile away. This story is so artfully written and well done."- Seraphia, Goodreads
