              Mystery among the moonlight and the magnolias . . .OK, forget the magnolias. It's the end of December, after all, and frost silvers South Carolina's Low Country. But Pinckney Plantation is still open for visitors who want to see the pride of Indigo Island. The old house claims a ...long history -- or so says the script the tour guides go by.What the script leaves out are the doors that apparently unlock themselves, the flickering lights, the sound of ghostly footsteps. And the dead body.The corpse is a new addition. Who is he? And what was he doing at Pinckney? And did he fall, or was he pushed?These are among the questions that puzzle the self-appointed detective trio of cousins thrown together for the holidays. Revelations about ruthless developers, secretive landowners, and family scandals are interspersed with hilarious samples of Southern manners before the cousins finally piece together the puzzle.

              Jaime Cox was only five when her mother took her to see the place where she grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and told her how three creeks in the area -- Bridle, Saddle, and Horse -- got their names. Seemed a wealthy horse breeder across the line in Virginia had picked ...his finest horse as a gift to his bride-to-be, only to have it stolen. He set off in chase of the thief and found the horse's bridle by a creek. At another creek, he found the saddle. And at a third creek he came upon his abandoned horse, peacefully grazing. Jamie wanted to know what happened to the thief. Was there still another nearby creek named String-'em Up? Her mother didn't know.She thinks that may have been the cause of her lifetime interest in North Carolina's intriguingly named places. She spent years learning the stories behind such spots as Bandana, Toddy, Trust, Justice, Joe, Old Trap, Bear Grass, Dumpling Town, and many others. The result is this delightful and entertaining book.

              Cooper Lanier has been surrounded by politics her entire life. Her late father, Cleve Spainhour, was a beloved two-term Southern governor, as was her husband, Pickett Lanier. Now, Cooper is taking office as governor herself, succeeding Pickett as he campaigns for president. On he...r first day, as the state is blindsided by a blizzard, Cooper quickly realizes she is surrounded by leftovers from her husband's administration and that Pickett intends to manage the state's affairs from the campaign trail, even if it means undermining her every command. She has mostly blamed her mother, Mickey Spainhour, a once-prominent political mastermind. When Cooper discovers the breadth of Pickett's back-room dealings, and just how far he's willing to go to become president, she realizes she must learn to use her political pedigree and instincts to serve her state. The Governor's Lady shows how politics brings out the best and worst in people and how the public arena affects politicians' values.

              William Walpole Bowater III has been told his whole life that his name will build character and open doors. Everyone assumes that the heir apparent to the powerful eastern N.C. family will return home after college and take over his father's prestigious law firm as well as assume... his father's position as political power broker. But Billy Bowater needs to create his own legacy. When Billy finds himself working as the legislative assistant for Wiley Hoots, the senior senator from N.C., his life takes a different turn. We follow Billy as the senator's staff gears up for a tough reelection campaign against a popular former governor. As the senator's strategists try to assemble an effective campaign plan, a controversial art exhibit opens at the state university's art museum. Astutely, the senator and his staff let the powerful television ministry, called the Christian Crusade, create the initial taxpayer indignation over the use of public money to help sponsor this show.
