Flatlands Blog Tour
Jennifer Martin hated the idea of returning to Mississippi. She hated the heat, the boredom, and the flat land that sprawled for miles and miles. Jennifer never imagined that Bedford had anything exciting or worthwhle to offer her. But within a day of returning to her hometown, she finds a job, a friend, and a mystery that could cost her life.
Flatlands is the first book written by Mississippi native Susan Sims Moody. Her story revolves around Jennifer Martin, a young college graduate who returns home reluctantly. Longing for a job as a reporter at a big city newspaper, she instead gets a job at the three-person weekly paper in her hometown, located in the Mississippi Delta. As she gets settled into her small rental house, Jennifer finds a small film canister in the wall while helping her friend Davis do some small maintenance work. Little does she know, the house contains items that its former occupant wants back desperately, no matter the cost. Susan weaves her story together in a seamless fashion, leaving her reader turning the pages wanting more. It is a fairly quick read. I finished all 135 pages in just a few hours. It was a great book and very enjoyable. I would suggest it to anyone looking for a great read.
Susan Sims Moody is a native Mississippian and graduate of Mississippi State University. She is married to Tom and has two children. They currently live in Wisconsin.
