Blessings From the Wrong Side of Town
Life was mundane for Leona Templeton, her cookie-baking sister, Betty Drummond, and their long-term neighbor, Clarence Brown, until the day they come home from a funeral to find Leona’s house has been burglarized. The thieves destroyed many of her possessions, but most traumatic for Leona, they stole her mother’s ruby necklace and the gold wedding band of her late husband.
Detective Bradley Smythe is assigned to investigate the crime, but Leona is dissatisfied with the snail’s pace of his investigation. Leona decides to follow the examples of their favorite TV detectives and solve the crime herself. With Betty and Clarence in tow, Leona’s search leads them to the unsavory north side of town, where they find three boys with information about the thieves. When thugs threaten to hurt them, help comes from an unexpected place.
Follow Leona, Betty, and Clarence and their friends from the Christian Church Group as Leona leads them into dangerous places and perilous situations in search of her most valued possessions.
