A Good Read and a Recipe

by Beverly Jennings

Life is frustrating for a self-willed teenager, especially when her parents are Maria and Walter from the Maria Series. The early years of the 1950's finds Alma fighting against her parent's old fashioned ideas and rules. But Alma still manages to fit many exploits into her life while working at Aunt Maggie's riding stable. She and boyfriend Adrian discover a stranger living at an old plantation house and Adrian is determined to discover his identity. Even though forbidden by her mother to join Adrian, she breaks the rules anyway, sure that they will come across at least an ax murderer. Find out who the stranger is while looking back at the Fabulous Fifties as they were.
