Augusta Goodnight, heavenly sleuth and guardian angel, is a welcome boarder with long-time resident Lucy Nan Pilgrim in the seemingly tranquil town of Stone's Throw, South Carolina. And Augusta's appearance comes just in time. The local college is the kind of safe place where students don't even lock their doors. At least it used to be, until girls start mysteriously disappearing. When Lucy Nan makes a grizzly discovery, she and Augusta must race to discover what connects these girls. And what is the meaning of the "Jabberwocky" clues that keep turning up around campus?

It will take some heavenly help - and a little home cooking - to restore the peace of the town.

"What order do the books go in? I just finished reading The Angel Whispered Danger and it was wonderful too! I work for a public library and came across Angel At Troublesome Creek after a patron returned the book. My Director is reading it now and my other co-workers are waiting for their turn:) I'm hooked and can't wait to read another Augusta Goodnight mystery. Thanks for writing such wonderful books..."
