When her husband left her for a younger woman, Rose Franklin bought a camper and started traveling. Eventually, she put down roots in Shady Grove, a campsite along the Mississippi River in West Memphis, Arkansas, where she has lived for six months now. Since she solved the murder of Lawrence Franklin, life has been quiet: she is enjoying her new friends, life next to the river, and a blossoming romance with neighbor Thomas Sawyer. But when Rose discovers a mysterious camper from New Mexico dead in his trailer, she finds herself in the middle of another mystery. American Indian artifacts, an ancient cultural history, and a passage to grace are at stake as Rose unravels the murder, while at the same time comes to terms with a visit from her ex-husband and her father's declining health. Jacob's Ladder is a thoughtful follow up to Down by the Riverside, featuring a curious and spiritual sleuth. "Jacob's Ladder is the perfect summer read. Pull up the closest hammock, pour yourself an iced tea, and settle in for this romp of a book." ---Philip Gulley, author of Home to Harmony "In Jacob's Ladder, Jackie Lynn has reprised her wonderful cast of West Memphis riverbank dwellers. It's a fast-paced, funny ride down the river with cleverly drawn characters worthy of the journey." ---Sallie Bissell, author of In the Forest of Harm "Jacob's Ladder is perfect light reading for sleepless nights and an exploration into the concept of innocence rewarded." ---Katherine Valentine, author of The Haunted Rectory, and the award-winning Dorsetville series "Lynn elevates the genre with her blend of philosophy, romance, spirituality, and elegant writing.... This is a truly lovely book to be read slowly, savoring life by the river in the cool shade." ---The Kingston Observer (Massachusetts) on Down by the Riverside
