The first book in the Ditie Brown series and a new author for me. It is character driven and I fill in love with the characters immediately. Pediatrician Mabel Aphrodite Brown aka as Ditie Brown is working at a refugee clinic in Atlanta, Georgia when Ellie Winston asked her to watch her children, Lucie and Jason for the weekend. Ditie agree at once and was looking forward to the weekend. Late the evening Ditie is awoken by a police homicide detective who informs her that they have found Ellie shot dead and left a on the street. Someone is stalking Ditie and the children and it is necessary to move the children as the stalker find the new location. Ditie is added by her French friend Lurleen. The detective, Mason Garrett becomes a friend. He hires Dan, PI to protect Ditie, Lucie and Jason. The story takes several turns for the children safety and adds new individuals in the process. A couple of romances occur. Who is stalking the children and what do they want? Is someone given the Stalker information? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. Family-friendly recipes are included.
