"Waiting On" Wednesday: Sweet Jiminy

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.

Sweet Jiminy by Kristin Gore
Publish Date:  04/26/2011

In the throes of a quarter-life crisis, Jiminy Davis abruptly quits law school and flees Chicago for her grandmother Willa's farm in rural Mississippi. In search of peace and quiet, Jiminy instead stumbles upon more trouble and turmoil than she ever knew existed.
She is shocked to discover there was once another Jiminy - the daughter of her grandmother's longtime housekeeper, Lyn - who was murdered along with Lyn's husband four decades earlier in a civil rights-era hate crime. With the help of Lyn's nephew Bo, Jiminy sets out to solve the long-ago murder, to the dismay of those who would prefer to let sleeping dogs lie.

The cover is a little blurry but that was one of the reasons I was attracted to it. The plot sounds awesome!
