From Goodreads:
Delilah Dickinson, who runs a literary travel agency in Atlanta, finds her new business getting some bad press when an overnight stay at a plantation modeled after Tara from "Gone with the Wind" results in murder when the actor playing the role of Rhett Butler turns up dead.

Look at the cute title! Look at the crazy cover!

This obviously it not serious literature. It was what it presents itself to be - an easy, light read. I’m not usually a cozy mystery reader, so this was a nice change. The literary twist on the story was nice. When it appeared that the mystery was solved, I didn’t believe it for a minute - the solution was too easy! Therefore, the twist wasn’t exactly shocking, but it was well thought out. The book lived up to its expectations. It’s good for summer.
