McWhorter, Kentucky, had undergone not only a facelift with new matching storefront windows but a much-needed heart transplant as well. The townsfolk were ready to bury the past and move on after many of their elected officials met an untimely death over a year ago. Sheriff Tillie Grant especially wanted to turn the page on the past. She stopped pining for Daniel Brooks, the father of her son, to return to her after leaving McWhorter to find his childhood sweetheart. She was now dating Lowell Evans, the handsome commonwealth’s attorney, and life seemed good in McWhorter until the day Jock Ledford returned.
Jock Ledford had caused the town so much trouble when he was alive that now even from the grave he was causing problems. When his decaying body was found at the center of the town, it set in motion a series of crimes that took the town’s sleuths from the hollers of Kentucky to hell and back to solve.
The secrets that Tillie and the town had so carefully concealed were about to be uncovered. With Daniel Brooks’s return to McWhorter, Tillie once again was faced with her feelings for Daniel. Tillie knew it was going to take a touch from heaven to not only heal her heart but to hold the town together. Her answer would be found in Halos, Hollers, and Hell.
