DL Kraft is a newcomer to the town and Barn Bar. Her husband recently retired and wanted to move to a small, quiet, rural area and it's driving her nuts! Hubby took some job he never talks about and suddenly travels alot. Their son is married to Debbie who works at the lumber yard and they moved to be close to the young married couple. The son took off and noone has heard from him since. DL and her husband are stuck in the house with Debbie until it can be sold. They moved Debbie into the dark, windowless basement and she resents it. The two pretend they don't know one another to keep it civil in public. DL is not much of a drinker, but will suffer the indignities of a beer now and then to stay social.
A connoisseur of mystery novels, DL finds something suspiscious nearly everywhere she looks. Perhaps with good reason!
