Click here to read my review of Miss Dimple Disappears and here are some details on Miss Dimple Rallies to the Cause. I’ve just received my copy and am chomping at the bit to read it as I loved the first one.

Publisher’s Blurb for Miss Dimple Rallies to the Cause

It’s September 1943, and the town of Elderberry, Georgia has exciting plans for the War Bond Rally to support the troops fighting the war abroad. Miss Dimple’s friend and librarian, Virginia Balliew, has agreed to chair the big event, with the help of Buddy Oglesby to publicize it. But when Miss Dimple’s first-grade class discovers a skeleton at the edge of a cotton field, and Buddy disappears along with the war bond money, it’s clear that something is amiss in the little town. It’s up to Miss Dimple along with her fellow teachers, to get to the bottom of it all without drawing the thief’s attention.

Neither war abroad nor crime on the homefront can daunt valiant Miss Dimple in the latest entry in Ballard’s beloved series.

Praise for Miss Dimple Disappears

“Fan of Agatha Christie? You’ll love this mystery.”
Woman’s World

“Genre veteran Ballard fills her story with wonderful characters and warm humor.”

“For all readers who wonder what life on the home front was like during World War II, Ballard’s…series launch offers plenty of wonderful nostalgia and the heartbreak that only war can bring. Fans of Southern small-town cozies and World War II historicals will enjoy this.”
Library Journal

“Ballad provides a nostalgic look at life in small-town America during the [WWII] war.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Intriguing…Ballard does a good job depicting a small American town as the factories gear up for war, young men enter the service, and everyone adjusts to rationing.”
Publishers Weekly
