The Cantaloupe Thief (signed copies available) by Deb Richardson-Moore (Lion Publishing, paperback, $14.99)
"Journalist Branigan Powers begins looking into the ten-year-old unsolved murder of a wealthy resident of Grambling, GA, for an article planned to coincide with the anniversary of the murder. The clients of a homeless mission run by her childhood friend, Liam, become an important source of information, but when two homeless are killed weeks apart in hit-and-run accidents, Branigan begins to fear that she has awakened a murderer. The Cantalope Thief is an insightful look into the life of the homeless and how others see them. It is a story of love and family and the horrible effects of drug addiction as well as an intriguing mystery with a cast of characters that I hope to encounter in future books."
