Hippie Wagon Homicide (Twister Sisters Mysteries) by Mildred Abbott
I recommend it to anyone who loves seeing an older lady be a sleuth like Jessica Fletcher. Hippie Wagon Homicide by Mildred Abbott is definitely different than the Cozy Corgi series of Ms. Abbott’s, but I liked it all the same. Ms. Abbott does a great job on everything in this book. ~Baroness’ Book Trove

Cordelia Davis lives with no regrets, despite her life changing drastically a half century ago when a tornado altered the destiny of the little Ozark town of Willow Lane. The town grew back stronger and more beautiful, and Cordelia, her sister, Pamela, and her best friend, Wanda, built a life to treasure.
As Willow Lane honors the memory of those lost and celebrates all that has been achieved, tragedy refuses to remain in the past. News of murder rocks the pastoral countryside when Cordelia discovers a body on her farm, beneath her beloved willow tree. And while the police make an immediate arrest, Cordelia finds herself untangling a web of lies and long-ago secrets.
With suspects in every nook of her cozy town—and an old flame knocking on her door—it will take all Cordelia’s tenacity to face the past and to weather the mysteries of Willow Lane.
About Mildred Abbott
Preoccupied with everything found in cozy mysteries: Puppies, Books, Cozy Mountain Towns, and Baked Goods. Although not obsessed with murder, however. At least not in real life (No contract killing here). But since childhood, starting with Nancy Drew, trying to figure out who-dun-it has played a formative role in everyday life. Author of the Cozy Corgi series and the Twister Sister series.
Hippie Wagon Homicide is book one in the Twister Sister Mystery Series. The series is written by Mildred Abbot. This is the first book that I have read by the author. We meet the Twister Series in this book. They are three women who had survived a devastating tornado awhile ago in their town. Two of them are actual sisters, the third is a best friend.
They have a catering business which I thought was pretty cool. Not only are they running a business, they give out casseroles to those in need. The town is getting ready to remember those that were lost in the tornado. Cordelia allows them to use her land for the remembrance. However the next day, they find the youth pastor dead under the willow tree.
The author did a good job creating a mystery. Would the secrets from the past become uncovered as they look for the killer? Or will Cordelia be the next victim?
I enjoyed the author's writing style. She created real feeling characters. The storyline was unique and engaging. I hope to read the next book in the series.
