Guilt is Midnight Blue: A Hazel Dean Mystery by Josalyn McAllister

Guilt is Midnight Blue
by Josalyn McAllister

Hazel Dean is a firecracker. Her superpower is being able to read people’s emotions and more importantly to fit the right book to the perfect reader. Color me jealous (the pun is unintended, but I will enjoy it anyway)
~I Read What You Write!

I fell in love with this town in Appalachia and the people. I especially liked the take on the feud between the Trudgeon’s and McCleary’s much like the Hatfield and the McCoys . . . This may be a new favorite series and I can’t wait to see what happens next for Hazel. We give it 5 paws up.
~Storeybook Reviews

I was caught up in the story right away, meeting Hazel’s family . . . and learning of her determination to free an innocent man despite the risks she has to take . . . You will totally enjoy this book, have your heart-strings pulled by the characters, and hold your breath in the suspense scenes.
~Here’s How It Happened

The big reveal did not just encompass one moment either. I was on the edge of my seat from Chapter Eighteen until Chapter Twenty-Three . . .

Hazel Dean can see other’s emotions in color.

She mostly uses it to help people find the perfect book in her shop, Books and Chocolate. But, when one of her customers is murdered, the police point to an old feud. Only Hazel can tell that the accused is innocent. She must navigate around her district attorney husband, and her surrogate uncle, the police captain, to find out what really happened.

Hazel drives, hikes and snoops all over her small Appalachian town in an attempt to bring peace to the victim’s family and prevent her community from being torn apart by old grudges.
