“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 a wonderful. READ THIS ONE.”â??Wooley Amazon Vine Voice Reviewer

Without her usual sources, she turns to an unlikely cast of charactersâ??friends, customers, ex-husband, and forger. With their help, she uncovers how unbridled greed has spawned an interwoven series of crimes and sorrows. Along the way, Kincaid discovers how much the Appalachian landscape and its people mean to herâ??and that life can include second chances. Book Two in the trilogy The Roads to Damascus is now available on Amazon.

Lynda McDaniel, award-winning author of 15 books, has woven together true events from her early years living “back to the land” in Appalachia with an intriguing mystery story. She says she “made mistakes by the wheelbarrowful,” but she wouldn’t take anything for the experience.

‘A Life for a Life,’ an autobiographical mystery novel, shares funny, moving, and surprising stories from McDaniel’s years living on a farm in Appalachia.You’ll meet a cantankerous laundromat owner who was just as weird as Lynda portrayed her, and a gentle giant of a beekeeper whose love for his family was as big as he was. And Cleva, who’s based on a lovely woman who taught Lynda how to can tomatoes and make the best blackberry jam you’ve ever tasted. Many of the other characters are fashioned after real people who opened their hearts to this deer-in-the-headlights city slicker. Lynda had moved to the mountains of North Carolina to see what rural life was all about. Over the years, she realized that everything that is important to her todayâ??she learned in her Appalachian home.

“Marvelous read! A compelling story told through the eyes and voice of two remarkable narrators who seem like polar opposites but are deceptively similar. They possess the same hopes and dreams for a new life. Not only are they courageous and determined, but most importantly, they share a special friendship. They describe their home life in such great detail that you feel like you have been transported to a small mountain town and are fortunate enough to catch a stunning beautiful glimpse into living and working in the deep woods. The intricate plot the will have you guessing until the end.” â?? Yvette Klobuchar, author of Brides Unveiled

“A homey southern mystery whose characters were as intriguing as the mystery. Lynda McDaniel has that wonderfully appealing way of weaving a story, much in the manner of Fannie Flagg. … It’s a real treat to read and made me anticipate meeting the characters in yet another installment.” â?? Deb, AMAZON HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER

“An earlier reviewer’s comparison to ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ is justified. I have 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, intuitively unsatisfying relationships or contrived plots. Not with this book! And the resolution was surprising yet completely believable. I found at the end that I had become intrigued by and attached to the characters, especially Della, and realized I could have read this as a novel without the mystery. My only disappointment is that now I have to wait for the sequel!” â?? Careful Shopper
