The 4th book of the Kelly Jackson mysteries covers a multitude of issues making an extraordinary story. Among the issues, the cover is a cooking class on mushrooms, public lands, sinker logs, Indian sacred grounds, problems with redwood, and a mushroom hunting dog and pig.
Redwood Cove is a B&B hotel situated along California’s northern coast. As the name implies the redwood grows there in large numbers. The town is hosting its annual mushrooms festival. Kelly has just been named manager of the hotel. The Silver Sentinels is a group of senior citizens that meet at the hotel.
A disliked reporter is found dead on Indian sacred grounds. The reporter has been selling information on mushrooms locations on public lands that some natives feel locations belong to them. The area overlooks a huge sinker log that is holding the creek in place. The environment protection agency has refused all requests to salvage the log. Daniel had challenged the reporter to be considered a person of interest in the shooting. Kelly and the Silver Sentinels begin to prove the facts to clear Daniel. Kelly managed to put herself in danger. I HIGHLY recommend this book and series.
