Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Arson, gardens, and a long-anticipated visit by Huey P. Long are the themes of the Darling Dahlias' tenth adventure, performed by Peggity Price. In Darling, Alabama, the summer of 1935 is extra hot, and nine arson fires have taken place. There's plenty of mystery for the garden club ladies, police, arson experts, and fire department to investigate. Price's Southern accent shifts from soft to brittle, echoing the action and tension. Price voices the arsonist in an unemotional tone despite his smoldering passion for flames. The Darling Dahlia Garden Club ladies sound lively or quavery, depending on their role and age as they discuss food, fire, and flowers. Price's cozy is replete with quirkiness, which enlivens the small town in the throes of local crises. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
