Marmalade and Murder: Tales of the South Mariah Williams read online review & book description:

Here is a summary of my completed18,349 word count Southern Gothic short story collection “Marmalade and Murder: Tales of the South”. Within these five stories, you will be taken to sleepy southern states and immersed into tales as sinful and decadent as your Aunt Montgomery’s’ Mississippi Mud Pie.

In “Praying with the Devil: A Tale of Adolescence and Sin” you are transported to sleepy somber Maycomb, Alabama where you meet a young girl name Addie Carnegie. Addie is a eight year old feeble girl who meets a beautiful yet mysterious woman name Ms. Hemingway who takes her on a journey of self discovery. Allow Addie to grip her small broken hands on your heart and push you into a world filled with angels, devils, life lessons, and forgiveness.

Death House takes place in Savannah, Georgia where we are introduced to Kelly Adkins, a young librarian. She learns there is an eerie house in her neighborhood where many folks are being murdered. With fright and curiosity she decides to risk her own life to explore the house, and eventually meets the killer face to face.

“Hard Toffee” puts us in Raleigh, North Carolina knocking on the pearly white embellished front door of the Boone family. We enter the life of Rhiannon, a young but intelligent girl who experiences a terrifying loss, and forced to enter a world of adulthood, tragedy, and pain. With the help of faith and some southern hospitality, Rhiannon learns about death, survival, and the sweetness of life itself.

In the Cajun flavored spicy town like New Orleans there is always something cooking. We meet Ms. Delavigne and her daughter Lucy. Ms. Valentine is a black housekeeper who stays with the Delavigne family with her daughter Biddy. As the Delavigne family is exposed to black culture, a brutal murder takes place and only two make it out alive.

Things seem deviously sweet in Charleston, South Carolina with the elderly Willows couple. Ethel and Birdy have been together for 49 years and their love is stronger than ever, until there is an accident that leaves one of them devastated and driven to insanity and chaos
