Miss Dimple Suspects
A Miss Dimple Kilpatrick Mystery by Mignon F. Ballard
Review: Peggy Ashcroft, a student in Miss Dimple Kilpatrick's first grade class, goes hunting for her pet cat as darkness begins to fall. When she doesn't return, Miss Dimple joins the search for her. She finds Peggy atop a very steep and rugged hill under some brush. As she lifts Peggy to carry her home, she notices the child has a raging fever. It's too dark and treacherous to make her way back home, so Miss Dimple takes the girl to the nearest house, the home of aging artist Mae Martha. Mae's young companion Suzy, who was a student at Emory University's School of Medicine and has been taking care of Mae, agrees to take look after Peggy and see that she returns home safely. Several days later, Suzy calls Miss Dimple with tragic news: Mae Martha has been murdered. And Suzy believes that she will be accused of the crime in Miss Dimple Suspects, the third mystery in this historical series set in Georgia during the years of World War II by Mignon F. Ballard.
