"Reminds me of "To Kill a Mockingbird" … finding your books is like finding a rare jewel.”
I started writing mysteries to share unforgettable stories from my back-to-the-land experience in the North Carolina mountains. I've kept writing them because of my readers. They tell me they love the characters, especially Abit Bradshaw. He started in a supporting role, but I listened and gave him a starring role in the rest of the series. Then came Astrid Holt in Welcome the Little Children and more recently Wallis Harding in Murder Ballad Blues. Oh, really, there are too many good characters to list—you'll have to see for yourself.
My fifth book in the series, Deep in the Forest, is slated for autumn 2021 publication! Sign up below to hear more about advanced reader copies and exciting launch deals—plus you'll receive the free series prequel, Waiting for You.
"FIVE STARS! Lynda McDaniel has that wonderfully appealing way of weaving a story, much in the manner of Fannie Flagg. The tale immediately drew me in, into the town, into the intriguing mystery, and into the people."

PRAISE FOR THE APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN MYSTERIES SERIES
"One of the most satisfying books I’ve read this year. Everything about the book delighted me. … Has been compared to 'To Kill a Mockingbird': both are character-driven and back a strong message of forgiveness and redemption."
"I've read and enjoyed lots of mystery novels, including series by NYT best-selling authors, but sometimes I've been disappointed by poorly drawn one-dimensional characters or contrived plots. Not with this book! I was held through to the end."
"GREAT !! BOOK Lynda McDaniel can write. This is one fine read. 'A Life for a Life' is outstanding. Great character development, real and believable. A good mystery that reads like a literary piece. Della Kincaid is wonderful. READ THIS ONE."
